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...
Mr. Latimer, Son of the Collector, of the Port of Philada: & Mr: Neal, a gentleman of this place, are about making a visit to Massachusetts. and I have recommended them to call on my friends at Quincy, which they have promised to do, and I feel a perfect confidence, that their being my particular friends & acquaintance, will secure them every attention & civility in your power to bestow. I am,...
Your friendly & excellent letter of the 1st: & 10 instt have reached me at this place, where I arrived the night before last, having passed a few days at Baltimore & Annapolis on my way. My tour has hitherto been highly pleasing to me, and should it conclude as it began, I shall not regret having made it; indeed a more favorable moment could not have occurred, since had I remained in Philada:...
This letter will be received by you from the hand of Horace Binney—You know him—He knows you—What more is necessary for me to add than that I am with usual esteem / Your friend MHi : Miscellaneous Papers.
The 26th: instt. brought me yours of the 18th: & the 28th: that of the 21st: with accompanyments— Accipe gratias et incepto permanete . You anticipated my request to be informed of how the rituals were this year performed at Alma mater. I am, among other pursuits, attempting to renew my acquaintance with school & College books, for which I own I had little relish while they occupied me as a...
I inclose you the Aurora of this morning which is pretty rich in contents. For some time past it has been too flat & insipid to compensate the trouble of sending it to you. I observe that the pieces under the signature of Decius are ascribed to H. G Otis—I have read but a few of the numbers, but I have no doubt the Author is clearly and rightly designated. The story he tells in his No 15 of...
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...
Mr: Israel Wheelen the United States Purveyor, setts out for the City tomorrow—I shall charge him, if I can obtain the packet of pamphlets from Dickins, with the number which he can carry without incumbrance. You will invite him to our house and visit his Daughter Jane—if you can— I have received the two orders upon the Bank of the U.S. which you sent me. The P-folio has taken wind at...
In the hope that before you leave the Fed: City my letter may reach you. I have to ask the favor of you to leave directions with any body who undertakes to unpack the books which were sent off to Washington, to pick out a volume of Dunford & East’s Reports, which was rather unwittingly packed up with several other books, legitimately my property, which have for want of a true claimant Shared a...
The Statement in this morning’s paper on the subject of a certain nomination, is in some degree corrected—though still very erroneous—I wish much to see the whole truth, on that subject, laid before the public, from some quarter. The Sup: Court made a quorum, on Saturday—Judge Chase arrived & the Court was opened—but the paper enclosed still chuses to fire at him at a distance—The Judge...
Before I heard of your coming this way, sooner than was expected, I enclosed you in two packets, letters to different persons, & in each one from some of your correspondents—After hearing of your departure I wrote to my Mother requesting her to forward some & return others, which a letter from her of the 7th: informs me she has done. Your caution came too late, but no harm is done, at least, I...
I came to town this morning to attend the Supreme Court of the United States, and as I had no other place to go to, I took possession, for the purpose of writing my letter of the Presidents house, whence I now address you from your own desk—Nothing has been yet done at Court, but an argument is fixed for tomorrow morning. Judges Cushing & Tredell are absent the latter is said to be sick. Chief...
Please to deliver the enclosed letters to my Mother with my best thanks, and request her to send me the letter I left with her. I will endeavor to send you the series, ere long. I enclose you a receipt for the shoes I bought for Mrs: Johnson, which you will have the goodness to deliver to Mr: T Johnson who asked me for it when I was at Washington. If he chuse, he may pay it to you on my...
I am favored with your’s of the 23d: instt: and the enclosures—one of which is herewith returned. The Lieutenant Governor’s address is quite equal to my expectations, and there is little doubt with me, that he will rise a peg higher, merely, or chiefly because the people would not be united in any man of more capacity and talents. If any considerable interval take place prior to a new...
I received in due course your favor of the 25th: ulto: together with the volume of Debates, Catalogue &ca: for all which I return you thanks—I have been but a negligent correspondent this Summer, compared with the last, for the plain reason that I have had more pressing claims upon my attention—You shall eventually lose nothing, however, by continuing your regular communications. The favorable...
