I have seen your letter of the 6th inst. in Mr. Fenno’s Gazette. An answer seems requisite. It shall be as concise as possible. With regard to the anecdote of the Minerva, you affirm it to be Wholly False . Information, which I sincerely credit, states it as being strictly true. There the story may rest. As for what you say of the papers signed by Messrs. Muhlenberg, Venable, and Munroe, I...
I expect that your remaining numbers of the History of 1796 have come duly to hand. The other copy will be ready for you on your return to town. I would not have intruded on you at this time about that; but am to request your indulgence for a few moments. I have begun another volume on American History; and it will be ready for the press in about a month. Having been in bad health, for a time,...
I have perused your observations on the history of 1796. As the facts which you there bring forward, and the conclusions which you attempt to draw from them, do not appear Satisfactory to me, I intend introducing a reply to them in a volume upon your administration, that I am now engaged in writing. My object in this letter is, to request that you will give an order to a friend of mine and...
Your interference with respect to my getting payment in a certain quarter has not had even the smallest effect. Before, or at the time of going there, I had a claim on a Gentleman for 34 dolls. and ½. I have got, at length 19.—dols.—So want 15 & ⅝. besides my gratuitous attendance now in the 4th, &, as I believe, in the last week. For I will, if I Can only get the balance due , to answer some...
I request Your indulgence for a few lines. I Shall be as concise as possible. A few days after I had the honour of Seeing You last, a very particular reason made it proper for me to quit the City next day. I consulted on this emergency, M Leiper, and General Mason. The former offered to take charge of my children, the latter to give me, or find me lodgings, if I came to Virginia. Accordingly,...
I am Sensible that this freedom needs an [appology]. I wrote You a letter In last month and if nothing can be done, or ought to be done, in one quarter, it is time that I Should be making application, in another, if I can say that I can have another; for I have not only motives of one kind, but others quite different, for not wishing to revisit that sink of destruction Philadelphia; for whose...
I never write a letter, when I can avoid it. I much less desire to trouble my Superiors. But I received, some days ago, your favour of October 11th. The nature of its contents supersedes the necessity of Saying that it was welcome. I have only to add that some parts of it seem to need an explanation on my part of what brought me here. When You are quite at leisure, what follows will explain...
I hope You will excuse my freedom in writing this letter. You have no doubt seen our Examiner. It has by no means been conducted as I Could exactly wish it to be, since I came down, for though Mr. Jones is a good writer, and a good man, yet as he is not himself a printer, and is only beginning his office, matters do not go on with all the rapidity that one could some times wish. We are daily...
Along with this letter You will receive another, which has lain by me a fortnight, the Contents being So unimportant, (some printed papers) that I had a doubt of sending them at all. In the Examiner which comes with this post , you will see a specimen of our troops here, and an abominable defence of all the worst measures of government. The latter piece was foisted in without my knowledge; I...
With reference to mine of last week, I now, with Submission, inclose 8 additional pages. I had 8 intermediate ones laid by for you, but they have been some how picked up, and it is too late at night to get others. Mr. Lyon is at last come, and The magazine will be sent out in two days. Hoping your pardon for this freedom I am Sir Your very obliged Servant RC ( DLC ); date of TJ’s endorsement...
