After I had closed my letter of yesterday and delivered it at the Coffee house, I received your favor of the 31st: August, accompanied by one from my Brother of the 1st:; both of which came by the Voltaire. I have already acknowledged the receipt of several letters from my brother, which have been forwarded by you; among which were doubtless those, which he was so anxious should reach me;...
Your favor of the 6th: currt. is at hand. It is true, that I mistook the statement in your preceding, respecting the exchange, but now comprehend it better. I agree with you also in opinion as to the propriety of drawing now rather than at a future day. Money in Holland will probably find less opportunity of improvement than hitherto. As it respects myself however, security is all I want for...
Your very acceptable favor of the 14th: currt: was received by me 10 days after its date, at Dresden, where I have passed a few days with much satisfaction, in examining the various objects of curiosity to be found in that City and in admiring the richness, fertility & beauty of the neighboring Country. I had formed high expectations of the place before I saw it, and I can safely say that the...
I thank you for your favor of the 4th: and the enclosures therewith for my brother. Although one of these letters was from home of the 14th: July it contains no news but what you will have collected from the Captn. Logan is received & the Embargo nominally raised, but too equivocally yet to be trusted. Wonderful act of justice & generosity! Why, all the ships embargo’d in their ports dont...
I wrote you on the 9th: instt: a letter, which I gave to a friend of mine, going to Hamburg the next day. He has probably forgotten to deliver it and as it contained a request for you to take passage for me on board the Elizabeth Letter of Marque, provided you approved her accommodations, I take the liberty to repeat the request from an apprehension that the first has failed. I wish to...
Your favor of the 25th: currt is at hand and agreeable to your suggestion, I enclose letters for America to go by the first vessels—I shall always distinguish duplicates of dispatches by the figure 2 . at the left corner, as on the enclosed—by which you will be able to distinguish them from originals and prevent their getting on board the same vessel. We have seen the correspondence, documents...
I know not whether I have acknowledged the receipt of any letter from you, since your favor of the 18th. September, which I received about two months after its date. Several communications from you have reached me within a short period, viz. The few lines accompanying the two Bills of Lading of the articles procured by my desire and shipped on board the Nancy, which arrived safe at NewYork...
Since my last to you I have received none of your favors; but a fair opportunity presenting, I shall address you a few lines rather for the sake of preserving the habit of writing by every opportunity, than for any thing interesting to communicate. Our annual election was held in this State two days ago; Members of Congress were to be chosen, as well as for the State Legislature. The...
Upon my return from a short excursion to Pottsdam, where we passed three very pleasant days, I received your obliging letter of the 4th: currt and thank you for the detail respecting the Hamburger’s accommodations. My voyage I rather think now, will be deferred until after the autumnal equinox say commencement of October or last of September, because possibly by that time a person may arrive...
I thank you for your favor of the 19th: instt: and for the information as to the orders you have given respecting my books, of which I desired you to take charge. The said books are however, as I am lately informed, now in the hands of Mr: Bourne at Amsterdam, who will transmit them to you by the first opportunity. The period for converting foreign loans into domestic debt of the United States...
