Ought a man who has violated the embargo law to have a commission under the government i am sure you will say no. Then before you give iohn barney (who I am told is applying for a captaincy in the n avy) one inquire who owned the schooner Sloath capt.

As it is your request that your constituents should write you their opinions concerning our national affairs, I shall send you some of my Ideas in a very crude state in order for you to digest and place in a more regular form, and to lop, prune, or cut up, or girdle, as after perusing you may think proper.

Barron who is Left alone to Bare the frowns of the Federalist & Tories I am hurt at your Patiality and alltho I have revered you as the man who saved America From Tyrants and Federal opprssion yet I have considered your support of Wilkinson as hurtfull to your futer high character and I was sorry to see...
I observe by the Washington Monitor, that the Clinton character is perfectly understood at the seat of Government. I hope & flatter myself; ere long, it will be throughout the United States. The late pamphlet of our friend Kittiltas has had some effect in this State & Vermont. Indeed it could not fail to have a good effect where the political character of Mr. Kittiltas is known. He is an...
From the best information that I can collect, I am of opinion that Spencer & several of the Clinton party obtained the appointment of Electors, by professing themselves friends of the Washington Nomination, and that they will vote for it, unless they are convinsed that there are mal contents enough to unite with the federalists &c &c to carry the old Man. We consider the Clinton family opposed...
I have this moment seen a letter from a Clintonian in Albany to one in this City, which States that De Witt Clinton, Judge Taylor, Obediah Gorman, a Mr. Gebhard & Old Compstock all members of the Senate had put down their feet in favour of Clinton the moment they met at Albany, that the republican party were about equally divided, and the federalists less than one third. De Witt intended on...

They first endeavoured to surprise the meeting into the nomination of their Chairman, in this they failed, they however prevented us from doing business for about half an hour....

A meeting of the republicans of the second ward will take place tomorrow evening to express their opinion of Cheetham in relation to his Attack on our able & worthy friend James Townsend. Mr. Townsend stands high in the republican ranks He is justly estimated for his disinterested patriotism.

The enclosed pamphlet is sent you by a Federalist, who sincerely desires your election to the Chief Magistracy. He has no views to office, for there is none which he would accept. He has nothing to ask for his friends. They, with but few exceptions, differ from him in his choice. His motives in writing to you are purely disinterested, unless indeed his interest in the prosperity of his...
The result of the election, in three of the counties which have felt the tyranny of De Witts council of appointment, & the Apostacy of Masters Marston , led all parties to calculate on the triumph of federalism in this State. Subsequent information from the western District leaves no doubt on my mind of a very small majority for the Republican party in the Assembly. The Senate are sound. I am...
The ambition & intrigues of De Witt Clinton have outstriped prediction. Indeed he has outdone himself with the federalists. His directions of Cheethams press in the abuse of the administration & the embargo measure, his attempts to get the old man nominated at Albany, his tyrany in directing the Council of Appointment to acts of violence & oppression, has so far divided the republican party,...
The result of the election in this City is a proud one for the administration of the general government. With the exception of G. S. Mumford we are of opinion, that Gentlemen elected are generally in favour of the unity of the party & the Washington nomination. Our friends thought it most politic to unite in the support of Mumford & some few others who’s opinions in regard to De Witt Clinton’s...
I informed you on the 18th. Inst. that James Townsend denounced G. L. Mumford in the nominating Committee of 70, & that we succeeded in nominating Peter Tolman of Rockland County & Wm. Denning of this City to fill the places of Mumford and Clinton. De Witt Clinton arriving the next day from Albany had the Address to get Tolman to decline & Mumford nominated by the Committee. De Witt is still...

filed with February 7, 1808 Agreeable to public notice we meet last evening in our respective Wards to appoint our Committees of nomination. Great exertions were made by the Clintonians to place their friends on the committees.
