Your obliging letter of the 15th of Novr did not reach me untill some days after we had taken possession of the City of New York—The Scene that followed of festivity, congratulation, Addresses, and resignation must be my apology for not replying to it sooner. I sincerely thank you for the Copy of the Address of Govr Trumbull to the Genl Assembly & Freemen of your State—The Sentiments contained...
The choice of your delegates to the General Meeting of the Cincinnati gave me pleasure, & I wish very sincerely that you would all attend;—Let me impress this upon you, with a request that you would impress it upon your Brothers of the delegation. This meeting, taking into consideration the prejudices and jealousies which have arisen, should not only be respectable in numbers, but respectable...
It has so happened, that your letter of the first of last Month did not reach me until Saturdays Post. You know, too well, the sincere respect & regard I entertained for your venerable fathers public and private character, to require assurances of the concern I felt for his death—or of that sympathy in your feelings for the loss of him, which is prompted by friendship.

Your favor of the 20th of Feby came safely, tho’ tedeously; as it is not more than a few days since I received it, and the inclosure, for which I thank you.

I thank you for your obliging favor of the 9th Ulto which came duly to hand, & congratulate with you on the adoption of the new Constitution in your State by so decided a Majority and so many respectable Characters. I wish for the same good tidings from Massachusetts but the accts from thence are not so favourable—The decision, it is even said, is problematical; arising, as I believe 9/10th of...
Although a multitude of avocations joined to a recent journey which I have been obliged to make in order to visit the works on the Potomack, have occasioned me to postpone giving an answer to your letter in favor of Lieutt How, yet I delayed not to forward the necessary certificate for that Gentleman, so that it might come to him before the time fixed for his departure. I have at length found...
I have received your favor of the 20th of June and thank you heartily for the confidential information contained in it. The character given of a certain great Personage, who is remarkable for neither forgetting or forgiving, I believe to be just. What effect the addition of such an extraordinary weight of power & influence as the arrangement of the East India affairs gives to one branch of the...
It is sometime since I had the pleasure to receive your favor of the 28th of October—but as I had nothing particular to send in return, I postponed writing until the present time to see whether any thing new would turn up. Nothing of importance has occurred. But in the meantime, I was extremely happy to find that your state was going on so well as to fœderal affairs; and you will permit me to...
