The object of my writing at this moment is to comply with a Suggestion made, through Mr: Breck, by a great number of the most respectable and influential Merchants of this place, who have taken the alarm respecting the conditional ratification of the Convention with France, and who are now extremely anxious, that another reconsideration of it on the part of the Senate should, if possible be...
We have been rejoycing with exceeding joy at the news of the result at Washington—Now we hope the Gentleman will do Something. I got your letter of Monday & at the same time was informed that the choice was finally made. Our former suspence was so uncomfortable, that any thing would have been considered a relief—It comforts me that New-England would not yield, but the rest have done better...
I received your favor of the 13th: this morning, informing of the departure of my mother, and at the same time I had a letter from her dated at Baltimore the 14th:—She is accompanied by Lieutt: Parker, and expected to be here to night. This moment, Richard called at my Office and announced the Carriage approaching, having left it about 5 miles on the other side of Gray’s ferry, so that I may...
Your favors of the 10th: & 11th: inst: are received. We have heard of the proceedings in the Representative chamber as far as the 22d: ballot, and we have admired that firmness, which puts the issue of the choice upon strength of nerves, rather than numbers. I have but little expectation, that the thing will go through, as it began—Some body will go over to the majority, but it is not easy to...
I have your favors of the 4th: & 5th: currt with pamphlets and papers &ca: which are valuable to me. I regret that I have not yet been able to procure the pamphlets relative to the 6th: article of the B. J. I spoke to Mr: Evans on the subject and was told that he could not furnish more than two or three—Mr: Read has no more & William M. Smith wont part with the case of Andi Allen, which he had...
I have your letters of 30th: ult & 3d currt: for which I thank you—The letter, which has so copiously extracted your indignation, not without good cause, did not provoke me, however, in the same degree. I do not see for my part, what other notions of Government, Mr: Jefferson could be expected to entertain—It was because he was known to think in the style of this letter, that the people have...
Your favors of the 24th: and 27th: ulto: are duly received. It seems not to be understood here, whether the proceedings; in Senate; relative to the Convention, are conclusive, as to the fate of that instrument, or whether, under any pretext, the discussion can be revived upon it. I am, myself, unable to Solve the question, though I have some idea, that the rejection of the particular,...
I have your favor of the 25th: ulto: with the paper enclosed; the contents of which amused me much—If you leave the City on Tuesday, my answer will not reach you; but I suppose it will be sent after you. There is Mrs. White’s lodging house in 8th: Street, which is more private than the Hotel, and where I presume you can be accommodated at short notice. It will be preferable to Francis’s, at...
Yours of the 25th: is just recd: and with it a number of pamphlets & a letter from my Mother—All shall be attended to in course—I have so much other occupation, that writing to the whole family is something of a tax upon my time—Yet I write to & receive letters from Washington, with more satisfaction than from any other quarter save one— Your remarks upon the unseemly political speculation,...
I received the letter you enclosed me from my father on the 25th: instt: with a few names of members & others, for Dennie—I have sent you three or four setts already of the P— F— to be distributed and now enclose you another—The opinion, here is pretty general, that the journal of the Silesian tour is, by far, the most interesting of all the Contents—Indeed, whatever comes from the pen of that...
