Take my ideas and weigh them of a proper course of conduct for our administration in the present juncture. You have called Congress—tis well.

It is possible that this restriction may be...

I should derive particular satisfaction from General Washington’s acceptance of a brace of Turkish pistols of curious workmanship now intrusted to a young gentleman with that view. They once form’d part of the military equipage of Field Mareschal Count Lowenthal and descended to a worthy grandson who a few weeks before he died handed them to me.
