I thank you very sincerely for your letter of the 19th. inst. from Washington. The business of recommending a candidate for office is always disagreable to me; not only because I fear it may be assuming higher ground than I am entitled to occupy, but because I am fully aware of the swarms of applications by which you are importuned on every vacancy, and it is extremely painful to me to run the...

I have, however, great pleasure in saying that I believe but one thing is wanting to it. Mr Monroe, who yesterday favored me with a conversation upon the subject, did not hesitate to say, that he feels “a...
One of those cases now occurs which oblige me to relax from my general wish not to add to your troubles in the disposel of offices. I inclose you the papers which produce the occasion, and they will present to you all the grounds of interest which I can possibly feel in the success of the application. They will have with you exactly the weight they intrinsically merit & no m⟨o⟩re. Accept the...
I thank you for the very splendid morsel of eloquence which you have been so kind as to send me . it is a happy and pregnant example to the orators of the 4 th of July, of change from the hackneyed topics of 1776, to those of the current year. I have read it with sensations very different from those which will be felt by our recreant citizens of the East. if theirs be sensations of sorrow ‘ I...
I have to acknolege the reciept of your favor of the 12 th and to thank you for your attention to the box of seeds. this is an annual present from the National garden of France to this country the disposal of which is confided to me.
