Letter not found. Ca. 3 June 1788 . Mentioned in Brown to JM, 7 June 1788 . Encloses resolution of Congress concerning the independence of Kentucky.
According to your directions I shall pay the proper regard to the particulars mentioned in [your] letter of april 20th. Mr Paradise was embarked before that letter got to hand—and carried with him all the debates, pamphlets &c to mr. Jefferson. I will enclose to you the massachusets debates by the first opportunity to Richmond. Be so good to inform me when you will set out to Richmond that I...
Before the date of this letter I hope you are gotten safe to orange, and found all things in a situation the most agreeable. We are still going forward in the same tract of Seven states, of course not a great deal can be done, and indeed not a great deal to do. A prospect of the new Constitution seems to deaden the activity of the human mind as to all other matters; and yet I greatly fear that...
I am favored by your friendly letter of april the 10th. How it happened that No. 69 of Publius should have been omitted I can hardly imagine; the neglect shall be done away if any acquaintance or the printer are in possession of that paper. The marchioness is perfectly upon her feet—for she walks five miles every day—and with great pleasure I will execute your Commands to her, and the...
I have the pleasure to enclose you a letter from Petersburg —and the newspaper of today—tho very uninteresting. Maryland has acceded to the proposed Constitution by a great majority. Chase, Paca, Martin, and Mercer oppossed it with their utmost vigor and abilities, but with decency. South Carolina will adopt the system very soon. The opposition in Virginia is much to be lamented and in N. york...
Neither the french or the english packets have yet arrived, which is not a little extraordinary. Not a syllable of domestic news but what the enclosed papers will exhibit to you. The Marchioness is a good deal better, and wants exceedingly to be present at the Indian Treaty; I think the Governor General can do nothing less than take so sweet a companion in his Train; but he seems to be averse...
I am honored with your two letters of May 1. & 3. Paradise was embarked—and carried to mr Jefferson the debates you mention, and other publications worth attention. I had all the boxes and packages brought to my house, have paid the freight and bonded the duties—they shall be distributed as you direct. Some of the acorns, Sulla, and pease are deposited in my little garden. The box containing...
Colonel Wadsworth has thought proper to leave us—and his state being unrepresented we are again reduced to six only—and probably may continue in that situation a week or two longer. The N. York delegates do not attend—it seems to me the period is fully arrived to close the Confederation. As no french packet has yet appeared or been heared of the minister is inclined to think that a prohibition...
I have the pleasure to write you by this post to make a thousand enquiries concerning your health from the marchioness &c and to enclose you the debates of the massachusetts convention under seperate covers. Contrary to expectation it so happens that we cannot bring nine states to act upon the floor of Congress, and this day one of the Maryland Gentlemen is going away which will throw us aback...
We are all extremely uneasy at your Indisposition—how much to be regretted indeed! And particularly when such important matters are under deliberation—but I hope that kind Heaven has restored you before this day, to be a farther blessing and honor to your Country! We are not very sanguine upon the event of the proposed constitution in Virginia—’tho your kind letters give us some degree of...
