By the Ship Cato, Captn James Snow for New York, I have shipped a Pipe of Arruda Wine for you, to the address of David Gelston Esquire, agreeable to what I had the honor to inform you the 14th Inst by the Richmond, Catn Hathaway for Philadelphia. It is double cased & marked TJ. I have taken much pains to have it of the best; and if I can trust to the taste of some persons who have tried it &...
I had the pleasure to address you by the Sloop Unity, Captn. Deakins, for Alexandria, acknowledging the receipt of your highly esteemed favours of the 19th & 20th July, covering the first & second of a sett of Exchange drawn by James Madison Esquire, for the payment of the two pipes & two hogsheads of Wine; the first of which sett of Exchange Mr Maury has accepted. In the same Vessel I took...
Not having been honored with an answer to my last two letters makes me with diffidence venture to address you, least my correspondence should become troublesome to you Sir, who know so much of interest & importance to attract your attention. But I could not forbear offering my tribute of praise for your wise determination relative to the late horribly perfidious attack on the Chesapeake. Had I...
I had the honor to address you the 10th. Ultimo by Captn Groves of the Brig Henry, via Salem. But am apprehensive that at any time you would think it a very dull letter, and at a moment when you must have so much important business on hand exceedingly tedious. If according to a common observation there is no sweet in life without some mixture of bitter, being thus troubled may fairly be set...
It is a common observation that the present is a time of Political Phenomena. The extraordinary events which have occurred within the last thirty years, on both sides of the Atlantick, will without doubt amply justify the assertion: but the United States has been the only Country during this period, and unhappily for mankind almost any other where the good of the people has been the sole seed...
I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 10th May, & immediately set about executing the Commission you favoured me with; but found it more difficult to get pure Termo Wine than I was aware of: for although this name is indiscriminately given to all the White Wines made in the vicinity of this City, yet amongst all the foreign Houses, who are the principal Wine Merchants, I could not...
When so small a Man as myself, without having any particular business addresses a person whose reputation is more owing to his great abilities as an Author Philosopher & Statesman than to his high Station, it may appear the effect of vanity or with some sinister view. But I can assure you Sir the former is not the case farther than that just pride, (if this has any affinity to vanity) which...
Chance threw into my hands a present to you, from Monsr. Chretien, an ancient Physician of Montpellier, of a treatise on the method of applying external remedies in different disorders, & afforded me the pleasure to address you under date of the 15th Ultimo. I forwarded it by the Ship Frances Captn Nicholls for Boston, with a letter from the Author & that I took the liberty to write, in it. A...
The last letter I had the honor to address to you was dated the 30th August. The sudden & extraordinary change which has lately occurred here has been attended with the seldom failing consequence of War. Has the human species endowed with the powers of resuscitation after laying in a torpid state some months, like some of the inferior classes of animated nature, and a person had just now awoke...
But one or two opportunities occurring since I was honored with your favour of the 6. July; and being then much pressed with business prevented my sooner having had the pleasure to reply. I exceedingly regret with you Sir, the violence & injustice that has forced us to resign the quiet times of peace to assume the Stern aspect of War. So many convincing reasons suggested themselves to my mind...
