Si vales bene est. ego valeo . having occasion to write to-day to Dr. Wardlaw, I touched a little on politics, but think it better to avoid it. having recieved from N. York this morning a paper giving the details of the revolution at Paris, I inclose it to you, as you cannot get it through the other papers by this week’s post. all reflections on this subject would be nugatory.—our tobo. was...
I inclose you a copy of the President’s speech. Before that was delivered the dispositions of all the members from every quarter seemed averse from war. But that disposition appears to be changing, and those are taking the hue of the speech who wish the Executive to be the sole power in the government. The Republican interest has lost by the changes in the last election , particularly by those...
Your letter of the 1st. inst. came to hand yesterday. that of Feb. 27. had thrown us off our guard so as to lose a discounting day. however on Wednesday the 12th. I shall remit to mr Jefferson 1000. Doll. on Saturday 15th. 400. more and on the Saturday following (22d.) 468.79 making up the whole 1868.79 Mr. Jefferson will recieve every remittance on the 6th. day after it’s departure hence. not...
It was expected the last week that we might have risen on Saturday next. Those expectations are now pushed off to Saturday the 24th. and perhaps it may be even later than that. I conclude however that instead of sending off my chair and horses on Saturday the 24th. as I had desired, they must set out on Wednesday the 28th. so as to be at Fredericksburg Thursday evening of the 29th. This will...
Yours of Mar. 31. did not come to hand till the 5th. inst. It is a pity it had not been recieved before the election , as it gave much uneasiness and embarrasment to your friends to be unable to give any account of you. It made a serious impression even on the zealous; and I have this day written a circular letter , with the apologies your letter furnished, addressed to every militia captain...
I ought to have brought with me my catalogue of books, but forgot it. it is necessary for me in making out a catalogue for Congress at the desire of their joint commee. it is lying I believe either on the table in my book room, or under the window by the red couch in the Cabinet. will you be so good as to send it to me by return of post, well wrapped & sealed up in strong paper. direct it to...
I find that the Ogee plain I sent you, was for the architraves of my doors as well as your windows. as we are now about these, I must borrow it of you again. what is become of the Carr’s brook expedition, and what the present intentions on that subject? we are always ready. loves & kisses to Martha & the little ones. Adieu. RC ( DLC ); date supplied from endorsement; addressed: “Mr. Randolph...
All well. no news from our commissioners at Paris. no talk yet of the time of adjournment, though probably it will be very soon after we hear from Paris. I wrote you 2. letters on the 22d. of Feb. no change in the price of wheat or flour. old tobacco at 13.50. I write in the moment of the departure of the post so can only add kisses to my dear Martha & the little ones and an affectionate Adieu...
Yours of the 16th . and Martha’s of the 8th. came to hand on the 23d. inst. in mine to you of the 19th. I informed you that the President had nominated W. Vans Murray M.P. to settle our differences with France. yesterday however he superseded that by a nomination of Chief Justice Elsworth, P. Henry and W. V. Murray to be envoys extray. & M.P. to the French republic; but the two former are not...
Davy will set out in the morning on his return with the horses. I will endeavor before he goes to get one of Hamilton’s pamphlets for you, which are to be sold here. Bishop’s pamphlet on political delusions has not yet reached the bookstores here. it is making wonderful progress, and is said to be the best Anti-republican eye-water which has ever yet appeared. a great impression of them is...
The Senate have this day thrown out their own bill for raising 15,000 men as a provisional army. I think they will also reject the bill for permitting private ships to arm. The Representatives rejected the bill from the Senate for raising artillery, and have this day by resolution proposed to the Senate to adjourn on Wednesday the 28th. Under present appearances I may by possibility be 3. or...
I wrote to Martha on the 5th. inst. and desired my horses might be at Fredericksburg on Tuesday evening the 5th. of March. I shall arrive there the next morning, & proceed part of my way home. I mention this again lest any accident should befal that letter. we have just confirmed the President’s appointments of Rufus King to enter into a treaty of commerce with the Russians at London; & of...
Among the multiplicity of things I had to think of on my departure from home I omitted to speak with you on the subject of the cask of beer you were so kind as to put by for me at Hay’s. I will thank you to have it bottled and sent up. At this moment C. Johnston has no money of mine in his hands. Therefore I have given Mr. Hay (whom I met with here) money for the bottles, and immediately on my...
After exactly a week’s balloting there at length appeared 10. states for me, 4. for Burr & 2. voted blanks. this was done without a single vote coming over. Morris of Vermont withdrew, so that Lyon’s vote became that of the state. the 4. Maryland federalists put in blanks, so that the vote of the 4. Republicans became that of their state. mr Huger of S. Carolina (who had constantly voted for...
You are probably anxious to hear of the election, and indeed it is the only thing of which any thing is said here: and little known even of it. the only actual vote known to us is that of this state . 5. for A. & P. and 5. for J. & B. those who know the Pensva legislature best, agree in the certainty of their having no vote. Rhode isld. has carried the Fedl. ticket of electors by about 200 in...
My last to you was of the 22d. inst. & on the same day I recieved yours of the 12th. I have in mr Lott’s hands something short of 200. Doll. should either the objects of horses or corn require this, be so good as to call on mr Lott for it, who will not need from you a formal order signed by me. he may be also informed that the order of Mar. 13. for 93.33 D given Richardson & notified to mr...
Your’s from Richmond is recieved. as soon as Colo. Cabell comes, within whose district Goochld. C.H. is, that matter shall be attended to. the French convention is recieved. it will meet objections from both sides of the house; but I am not at liberty to mention it’s contents. the event of the election is now pretty well known. the two republican candidates have 73. each, mr A. 65. & P. 64....
The H. of R. has been in conclave ever since 2. aclock yesterday. 25. balots have been taken at intervals of from half an hour to an hour. they were invariably 8. 6. & 2. divided. I can venture nothing more by the post but my affectionate salutations, to yourself & my dear Martha. P.S. 1. P.M. the H. of R. suspended the balloting from 7. to 12. this morning & after trying a few balots with the...
I wrote you last on the 12th. inst. two days after which I recieved yours of the 2d. from it’s frequently happening that instead of arriving on Tuesday (as all letters do by the Fredericksburg post) your’s arrive on Saturday, the day the Richmond letters come here, I presume they come by the way of Richmond. if they arrived on Tuesday, they would be acknoleged in my letters of Thursday, which...
Your favor of the 3d. came to hand yesterday. I suspect that I mistook our post day when I first arrived here, and put the letters you mention into the post office a day too late. I shall be glad if you will mention when that of the 1st. instant gets to you, as well as the present & future letters, that if there be any thing wrong in the post I may get it rectified. the mail for Milton is made...
I have suffered the Post day to come upon me for two weeks past so unexpectedly as to be unable to write even the necessary letters of business. I found on my arrival that Barnes had not had the courage to sell our tobacco notwithstanding my positive directions to do so. he could then I believe have got 7½ D. for it. I struggled for a fortnight for that price, but was obliged at length to take...
Your’s of Jan. 18 never reached me till this day, so that it has loitered a week somewhere. our post going out tomorrow morning, I hasten to answer it. my anxiety to get my lands rented is extreme. I readily agree therefore that mr Kerr shall take for 5. years, or say till Christmas 1804. the Oblong, Square field, and the one on the river next below the Square field, comprehending the orchard:...
I wrote you last on the 17th. of February. since that I learn by a letter from Richmond that Martha is with her sister. my last letter from Eppington was of the 16th. of Feb. when Maria was hoped to be in fair way of speedy recovery. the continuance of the non inter-course law for another year and the landing of our commissioners at Lisbon, have placed the opening of the French market (where,...
Your’s of May 24. is recieved, and I have directed the springs to be made according to your desire. Your other commissions shall also be executed with pleasure, and shall go with some things of mine in the course of this month. Your tobacco is not yet arrived. Mr. Johnston’s express directions to ensure has induced us to do it: otherwise, considering the safety of the season I should have...
I arrived here on the 8th. day of my journey from Belmont, having suffered much with the severity of the weather, and taken moreover a violent cold which still indisposes me. Not so much however as to prevent my attendance on business, and it is going off. The Senate had as yet only a single bill before them, so that I found myself in place in time for business. They have since received and...
Yours of Apr. 26 . came to hand the 2d. inst. we have recieved information, not absolutely to be relied on, that our envoys are arrived at Paris and were recieved with peculiar favor. I have seen a letter from a person there of the best information dated in January that the dispositions of the present government were so favorable that a carte blanche would be given to our envoys & that it...
Your’s of Mar. 5. was recieved after mine of the 15th. was sealed. I have observed for some time past that your letters come 2. days later than mr Madison’s. I suspect therefore that your’s come by the way of Richmond. I think, considering the poor appearance of the wheat crop, & high price of tobacco, it will be best for Page & George to push at as much of the latter as they can. I should be...
My letters to you have been of Jan. 3. & 17. to Martha of Dec. 27. and Jan. 23. yours of the 19th. came to hand yesterday. we have now got the derangement of the post set to rights. your letters arrive on Tuesday, & the post goes out again on Thursday. he arrives in Charlottesville the Thursday following & comes away on Saturday (I believe, but perhaps Friday) and gives an answer in three...
Yours of the 13th. came to hand yesterday, and relieves my anxiety as to the health of the family. I thank you for your interference at Monticello & Shadwell. I had directed the managers at both to apply to you for your counsel when at a loss, and have only been prevented by the state of your health from asking a more onerous attention. George needs to be supported & Page to be moderated. Davy...
Your’s of the 17th . reached this on the 21st. from Saturday to Wednesday. this will leave this place tomorrow (Saturday the 24th.) and ought to be with you on Thursday the 29th. but it seems that a week is lost somewhere. I suspect the Fredsbg rider leaves that place an hour or two before the Northern post reaches it. on this subject I will this day write to the Postmaster genl. I am...
