You will find inclosed a Letter from Mr. Short to me, relating to his Servant, and also one from him to you expressing a Wish that it should be left optional with him to direct the Vessel in which he is to sail, to proceed either to Havre or L’Orient as the circumstances under which she may make the Coast of Europe may render the one or the other most convenient. In consequence of these...
No Letters having been received from the President or yourself last Night, I have this day forwarded the necessary Instructions for the departure of the Dispatch vessel. I have been so much taken up with this Business that I have not had time to read the Dispatches received last Night from Mr. Erving therefore it is that some of his Packets go to you by this Mail unopened. With Sentiments of...
I had the honor to recieve your Letter of the 16th. last night. The Dispatches had been delivered to Mr. Gibbon the preceeding day, with instructions to deposit all of them, save those for England, with Mr. Short immediately on his arrival in Philadelphia. The Cypher will go on tomorrow as also the Instructions for the Departure of the Vessel, unless contrary directions should be received...
I had the Honor to receive your Note directing me to desire Mr. Short to name the fund on which he would draw. I have written to him accordingly and sent a Copy of your note that he may decide whether it was intended that he should direct his answer to the Secretary of the Treasury at NewYork, or send it to me. In either case some little delay must take place probably long enough to give you...
I have had the Honor to receive your Letters of the 6th. & 9th. Inst. together with the Papers to which they relate. These shall be disposed of as y ou direct without loss of time, tho I shall be the less anxious to send them off as I presume you will wish to avail yourself of the conveyance provided for them, to reply to the Letters from our Agents in Madrid, Paris and St. Petersburg which...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 6th. Inst. and the Papers which it covered. The Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury enabled me to take up Mr Lears Bill which had been protested but not returned to the owners. I have forwarded the Certificate to Mr. Magdalena and made to Mr Dallas the request you pointed out. I apprehend there will be no great difficulty in getting a Person to...
You will have seen in the National Intelligencer and also in the Monitor some observations on Mr. Cannings Speech. With Mr. Smith I had some conversation before I received the two Private Letters you did me the Honor to write me; since the receipt of them I have seen both him & Mr. Calvin & put them in possession of your Ideas and of the facts you state. These will enable them to give useful...
I have the Honor to inclose for your Signature three Letters to the Secretary of the Treasury, with Explanatory Notes in pencil. I mentioned in my Letter of Friday that Mr. Davidson had said he should cause Mr. Lear’s Bill for $12,000 to be protested if it was not paid. The Protest was made today; tho Davidson has promised me that he would hold up the Bill until thursday when I gave him to...
Mr Graham has the Honor to present his Compliments to the President and to forward the three inclosed Letters which have recently been received at this Office—he begs leave at the same time to inform him that Commissions have been issued to Mr Porter and Mr Sullivan agreeably to his Instructions DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I have been unexpectedly so taken off by repeated interruptions that I have only a Moment to acknowledge the reciept of your Letters of the 30th. Ulto and to give some explanations of the inclosed Papers. The Letter for your Signature is to meet the payment of a Bill for $12,000 drawn by Colo. Lear in favor of Degen & Purviance & Co presented at this Office on the 2d. of Augt as I find from an...
I had the Honor to receive last night your Letter of the 26th. Inst and this Morning I have done what it directed me to do. I took the Liberty in my last, to give an Opinion that it would be right and proper to put the People in possession of the facts connected with our Foreign Relations, for the most dishonorable and unfair means are used to deceive them, on this point; and on the eve of a...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 23d. Inst. today and shall attend to the instructions it gives. Among the Papers inclosed you will find three Letters addressed to the Secretary of the Treasury, & sent to you for your Signature. One of them you will observe is written partly with a pencil as we were not certain as to the fund out of which the Money ought to come. These are the...
I recieved the Night before the last a Packet from you in which I found your Letter of the 19th. Inst. As the Gentlemen in Mr. Gallatin’s Office did not feel themselves competent to issue the orders necessary & proper in the Case of Genl. Turreau’s vessels, I yesterday transmitted to Mr Gallatin, an Extract from your Letter to me on that Subject; and today I have written a Note to Genl....
I had the pleasure to receive this Morning your Letter of the 16th. covering the Bill drawn on you by Mr Rogers. As you have accepted this Bill, it will be paid at the Treasury without an order from you. I consider it therefore as unnecessary in this case to send your Letter to the Secy of the Treasury for your Signature. I shall however send you such Letters in future when I have occasion to...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 12th. Inst last night. The note for Mr Erskine together with a Copy of Genl Baileys Letter to you have been prepared and will go by the Mail this Evening as also Mr. Pinkneys Letter to the Secretary of the Navy. As you Authorise me to act on Mr. Foronda’s note of the 1st. Inst I think I will make a translation of it and send it to Mr. Gallatin, if...
I had the Honor to receive last Night your note of the 12th Inst. directing that a Commission should be made out for Genl. John Steele as Collector for Philadelphia. This has been done, and Mr Pleasonton has taken the Commission to the Treasury, that it may be forwarded to Lancaster by the Mail which leaves this in the afternoon. With Sentiments of the Highest Respect I have the Honor to be...
I went into the Country last Friday Evening to bring Home Mrs. Graham on Sunday, but owing to continued wet weather I could not get back until Wednesday Morning. I understand from Mr. Brent that he forwarded to you the L etters and Papers received during my absince, and executed the directions given in your Letter ( without date) which came by the Mail of Sunday. The Mail of last Night brought...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 2d. Inst last Night. The Copies which you directed to be sent to Mr. Erskine & Mr. Gallatin are made out and will be forwarded by the Mail today. You will I hope receive before this reaches you the Letters, from Genl. Turreau which were mentioned in my Letter of the 29th. Ulto. and ought to have gone with it. I rather apprehend that the British...
You will see it stated in the Mercantile Advertiser of New York that the Ship Thalia has brought Dispatches from Mr. Pinkny I therefore think it necessary to advise you that these Dispatches have not as yet reached the Department. It is probably they may come on to Night and if so I shall forward them by the Post Rider tomorrow. From a Norfolk Paper which I have just seen it appears that a...
Among the Letters now sent, you will find two + from Genl. Turreau. The one directed to the Secretary of the Treasury was sent to the office before you left this Place. The other was received last night. From these Letters and the Papers with them it would seem that Genl. Turreau had obtained permission from Mr Gallatin to purchase one Vessel to go to Europe and that he has purchased two to go...
J Graham has the Honor to present his compliments to the President and to hand him the inclosed Letter from Mr Rademaker for perusal. It may perhaps be proper to mention that the Gentleman acting as Secretary to Mr Rademaker had so far back as 1804 obtained a Passport from this Office as an american Citisen—this was returned to the office and another one sent to him in the place of it. DLC :...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 30th. Ulto this morning, together with two Packets exclusive of the one in which it came. I have not seen Mr. Forrest since his return from Baltimore. He is kept at Home, by the Death of his youngest Child. He sent me the inclosed Note, yesterday. I have received the Passport for the Hamlet, from Genl. Turreau & forwarded it on to Mr. Hill by the...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 27th. Inst and have in consequence given to the Treasury Dept & to Mr. Hill the information you directed me to give. Mr. Forrest has gone to Baltimore on the Business you pointed out. As I had written to Genl. Smith on that Subject I requested Mr. Forrest to call on him. I have understood from your Letter that you did not wish an application to be...
I had the Honor to receive this Morning your Letter of the 21st. with its inclosures. I immediately went to the Treasury, to hand the Papers which related to Mr E. Livingston’s Business to Mr Gallatin, for he has not as yet set off for Phia.; but I did not find him at his Office. I therefore left the Papers. They will probably go on to NewYork by tomorrows Mail, for Mr Livingston has written...
I had the Honor to recieve last Evening your Letters of the 16th. and 20th. Inst. and have today forwarded your Letters under cover of the first, to Genl Turreau and Mr Dallas. I called at the Treasury to-day to see Mr Gallatin. He was not there and I was told by Mr Jones that he would probably set off for Philadelphia this afternoon. Mr Jones promised me however, that Mr Lewis’s Letter should...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 15th. this Morning and am very sorry to hear that your Journey was retarded by causes so unpleasant I was fearful however, that it would be the case, for we had very bad weather here while you were on the Road, not only wet but very Cold. The Passport for the Leonidas has come in good time for she has her Cargo on board at last, and will drop down...
In my Letter of yesterday, which went by the way of Fredericksburg, I mentioned that Mr. Gallatin had declined giving any opinion as to the propriety of permitting the Secretary of Mr. Rademaker to go out to Rio Janeiro in the vessel Chartered to take Mr. Hill there. I therefore sent the Letter of Mr. R. asking this permission to you. From the inclosed Note you will see there is yet time for...
I have the Honor to forward you by this Mail the Letters mentioned in the inclosed List. You will observe from a Note of Mr. Gallatins, that he declined giving any answer to the application made by Mr Rademaker and I am advised by Mr Smith to send Mr Rs. Letter to you. As yet I do not learn that a vessel has been chartered to take out Mr Hill, so that the probability is, no time will be lost...
I had the Honor of writing you a few lines by the Post Rider who left this on Tuesday last for Orange Court House, and to send you the Dispatches which had just then been received from Mr. Pinkney and Genl. Armstrong together with several Letters from other Persons of which I enclosed a List. Among the Letters which accompany this you will find two from Genl. Turreau. One of these you gave me...
