I think we were under impressions last night which the papers did not justify. No single act was specified as a cause of complaint. No obstacle was stated to have been opposed to Mr. Rose’s landing & coming on. What we did, was well, but I doubt the expediency of sending a vessel. It might shew too much empressement to gratify punctilios not explained to us. These thoughts are merely for...
I have the honor to transmit inclosed a copy of the letter I have received this day, from Tobias Lear Esqr. dated Algiers 16th. & 17th. December 1807, concerning the arrangement with the Dey of Algiers, which I also transmit to the Consuls of the United States in the principle ports of Spain, France and Italy. I have the honor to be Very Respectfully Sir, Your most obedient and Very humble...

I thank you for the specimen of Benni oil which you were so kind as to send me. I did not believe before that there existed so perfect a substitute for olive oil. I tried it at table with many companies & their guesses between two dishes of sallad dressed, the one with olive oil, the other with that of Beni, shewed the equality of the latter, in favor of which the greater number guessed....
Having Just arrived in Town I avail myself of the opportunity to inform you by the Mail which leaves this to morrow morning, that Mr. Blannerhasset, the celebrated accomplice of Burr, passed thro Cincinnati on Wednesday last, on his way down the River— Report says that Burr was, a few days since, at Pittsburgh & that he descended the river about the same time & perhaps in the same boat with...
Th Jefferson with his compliments to the revd. mr Hargrove, returns him his thanks for the little peice on telegraphs which he has been so kind as to send. it comes very opportunely, to enter into competition with some other plans, at a moment when we have under contemplation the establishment of a system of Telegraphs. he is very sensible of this mark of mr Hargrove’s attention, and salutes...
Your letter of Dec. 1. has been recieved some days. the government is disposed to encourage the working a sulphur mine and to make the advance you desire, on proper security, and on satisfactory information as to the quality & quantity of the ore. you are therefore desired to send to the Secretary at War, by the stage which comes from the Westward of this place, samples of the different...
Your favor of Dec. 20. has been recieved. the copy of the late volume of agricultural proceedings is not yet at hand, but will probably come safe. I had formerly recieved the preceding volumes from your kindness, as you supposed. writings on this subject are peculiarly pleasing to me, for, as they tell us, we all sprung from the earth, so to that we naturally return. it is now among my most...
Dr. Waterhouse has been appointed to the Marine hospital of Boston as you wished. it was a just tho small return for his merit in introducing the Vaccination earlier than we should have had it. his appointment makes some noise, there & here being unacceptable to some: but I believe that schismatic divisions in the medical fraternity are at the bottom of it. my usage is to make the best...
