The result of our elections for the State legislature being known, it is with great pleasure that I inform you of our success. It has exceeded our most sanguine expectations. Of 80 members who compose the House of Delegates 47 are decidedly opposed to a legislative choice of Electors. Therefore an alteration of the present mode of election by the people will not be attempted. The consequence...
I was honor’d with your Letter of Augt. 5th. at which time much uncertainty rested on the state of political affairs in Maryland. I have now the pleasure of communicating to you that the People of our State will exercsise the right of suffrage in the Choice of Electors in Districts. Altho I cannot give an Official statement of the different polls throughout the State, yet I can Assure you that...
As Mr. Alston is already known to you no introduction or recommendation from me can be requisite. I have great pleasure however in expressing the high opinion which I entertain of his character and his talents. He is justly considered as a great acquisition to the Cause of republicanism. I had not the pleasure to see your friend Talliafero. The letter which you did me the favor to write in his...
The Preservation of wheat against the Ravages of the Fly being of such Consequence to you, & to your Neighbourhood, I thought every Hint that promised any Success would be agreable to you. I have therefore inclosed an Extract of a Letter, which I found in a late Paper, from Norfolk. The Paper I beleive does not circulate in your Part of the Country. The Character of the writer seemed to render...
The extreme anxiety we feel on account of the approaching election must be my apology (if any is necessary) for writing to you on the important subject, can we, may we rely on the integrity of the southern States? We have lately had some reports that have alarmed us from Tennessee, will you let me know how many votes we may certainly calculate upon for Messrs. Jefferson & Burr? We depend on...
I ought to have answerd yr. last favor sooner, relative to an advance made me sometime last year at Fredbg., but many interesting concerns have prevented it. That advance was I presume made to Mr. Jones, as I recollect writing by him to request abt. that sum to be applied to my use there. I think too you advanc’d him the cash as he paid the debt wh. I owed on his arrival at Fredbg., tho I...
An unhappy event has occurr’d which has overwhelmed us with grief. At ten last night our beloved babe departed this life after several days sickness, wh. attended the cuting his eye teeth in the last stage, when we flatter’d ourselves the danger had passed. I cannot give you an idea of the effect this event has produc’d on my family, or of my own affliction in being a partner and spectator of...
The friends of republicanism have to congratulate each other upon the auspicious appearance of political events. It is reduced to a certainty as far as human foresight can predict that both Houses of the Pennsylvania Legislature will be republican after the October Elections. I conversed last Week with a Monsieur Savary de Valcoulon intimate friend & copartner with Mr Gallatin who says that he...
I now send by Bp. Madison the balance which should have gone from our last court by mr. Barber: but not seeing him the first day of the court, & that breaking up on the first day contrary to usage & universal expectation, mr. Barber was gone before I knew that fact. Is it not strange the public should have no information of the proceedings & prospects of our envoys in a case so vitally...
