I suppose you partake in the common solicitude to hear the passing political occurrences of this place, at this time. Accept this effort to satisfy your anxiety. I presume you have seen the President’s Speech, & the Senate’s answer. I now inclose you the answer of the H. of R which was presented yesterday. When I arrived here which was on the 4th. day of the Session an answer had been drafted,...
I hasten to tell you that the Northern Mail of today brings an account of the arrival of a Ship at Boston from London with European intelligence up to the 4th. May. Being Sunday, the post office is not open, but Mr Patten says, as Bache tells me, the papers contain a positive account of a seperate peace between France & the Emperor of Germany—and among other things, that a Mutiny has taken...
Soon after my arrival here, I recd. your favour with several inclosures. The inclosed Letters were delivered, as directed, and I should have acknowledged the receipt of your Letter at an earlier period—but for an indisposition which has kept me very much confined during the whole Winter. As the Weather becomes more mild, and the Climate more like that to which I have been accustomed—my health...
I send you inclosed two papers from which you may form some opinion of the temper prevalent here—but principally to make you acquainted with a fact very interesting to the Southern States.

I send you inclosed the amendments made by the H of R to our Sedition Bill —they have been agreed to this day in the Senate—and these Amendments with the parts of our Bill that were retained now form the Sedition Act, which awaits the president’s approbation only, and which it will certainly receive. The principle having obtained, the modifications are of no great moment, because they may be...
Since I last wrote you, the H of R have passed our Sedition Bill, with the inclosed amendments —The amendments were this day agreed to in the Senate; So that when the President has approved the act it will be composed of those parts of our Bill which were retained, and the inclosed amendments unaltered by us—That he will approve it, is not doubtful—The principle being established, it is but of...
My intention was to have been in Philadelphia on the first day of the present Session of Congress, if my health would have allowed me—But an autumnal fever with which I was attacked last August immediately after my return home, has not permited me to enjoy one day of health since that time—As the Winter comes on I hope I shall get the better of it—but it cannot be, that I shall be able to...
