I was this moment favoured with yours of the 23d. Ult. I was so fully possessed of your intended conduct as to the election which is to be made in your district that I have endeavoured to give such a turn to the enquiries of those who have signified a solicitude for your coming to Virginia, as should prepare them for the event of your non appearance, at the same time that there might be no...
By a notification in the Pensylvania Packet, it appears that the Southern Mail was robbed on the 22d ult. in the State of Delaware. As it was about, at least not far from the time, I wrote you fully in answer to your favor of the 5th of Novr I am anxious to know its fate. If it has not reached your hands I will upon intimation thereof transmit a duplicate of my sentiments respecting the Falls...

Since my last it is decided that Monroe is to be your opponent. The Interest of both Gabel & Strother will be combined in his favor. I wish you could be in the district as no pains will be spared to impress the minds of the people with prejudices against you—the ground taken is that you are utterly against any kind of alteration in the Govt. The Election throughout the State is to be on the...
Our mutual Friend Hamilton has communicated to me in Confidence the Substance of your Letter on the Political Prospects in Pensilvania, and Virginia; I learn with Extreme Regret, the Division of the Federalists in the former State; and the malignant Perseverance of the Opponents to the Constitution in your own. I trust however that we shall have the Benefit of your Councils, and Exertions in...
Inclosed you will receive the Journal containing the strongest effort of federalism in our Legislature. I cannot but flatter myself that the good sense of our Poeple will treat with proper Contempt the conduct which must be so unavailing & disgraceful to our Country. We are waiting with anxiety to receive your permission to publish such parts of your letter to Mr: T. if not the whole, which...
I thank you My Dear Sir for yours of the 20th. The only part of it which surprises me is what you mention respecting Clinton. I cannot however believe that the plan will succeed. Nor indeed do I think that Clinton would be disposed to exchange his present appointment for that office or to risk his popularity by holding both. At the same time the attempt merits attention and ought not to be...
I was this day duely favord with yours of the 24th. of Septr. & the 12th. of October for which accept my thanks. The Convention elected pursuant to the recommendati[o]n of the late Convention met at this place the 1st. Instant & came to a determination that it was most advisable for this District to renew there application to the State of Virga. for an Independent Government—agreeable to the...

I cannot, my dear Friend, refrain writing a few Lines, in Consequence of the late Vote of the Assembly respecting Senators for the new Govt. It is certainly a remarkable Instance, to say the least, of that Whim & Caprice wh. has so often controuled the Decisions of Popular Bodies. I do not know indeed, whether you wished an Appointment in the Senate, but if you did, I am sure the Effect of the...
