By the Ship Cato, Captn. Snow, I had the honor to address you acquainting you with my having shipped a pipe of Arruda Wine double cased in that vessel, accompanied with two sample bottles. I esteemed it a very pleasant wine & I have no doubt that it will prove agreeable. The Ship sailed about 8 days ago for New York. With the most perfect Respect I have the honor to be Sir yr. mo. devoted...
I have the honor to inclose you a Bill of Lading for two pipes of arruda Wine of the last Vintage, shipped by the Brig Neptune Captn Calvin Delano for New York. It is a very fine Wine & I think will prove satisfactory with a year or two’s age. I have sent two samples & shall request the Collector of New York, $D: Gelston Esquire to send the samples on to Washington. Should they please you...
I had the honor to address you the 27th. Septr. by the Bark Elisabeth, Captn Larson via New York. The two pipes wine therein mentioned goes by the ship Edward, Captn Craig & are cased. Agreeable to your instructions I have address’d them to the Collector of Philada or N York, the vessel being bound to the former port, but if the delaware is frozen, will put into & unload in the latter. Had the...
I was honored with yours of the 16 April; and was much gratified that one of the last pipes of Wine was of a quality which met your approbation. A compliance with your wishes will always give me much Satisfaction, but it will be no small addition to my pleasure; to think that it has in the smallest degree been in my power to be instrumental to your comfort. Agreeable Sir to your wishes I have...
The foregoing is a Copy of the letter I had the satisfaction to write by Captn Delano. Before this will come to hand I hope that the Wines will have reached New York & that Sir they will prove to your satisfaction. They are here esteemed as good as the Termo of Lisbon affords; but these things depend much on Taste. Should they prove to yours, I shall be much gratified; if not, have the...
Ever attentive to your commands I have been enquireing for the Oeiras Wine , but cannot find any here to be depended on as genuine, there being several times more sold under that name than is made on the Estate . Presumeing Sir that none but the first quality would suit you, I supposd it would be more agreeable to wait a few weeks longer untill I could get the best from the Country, than to...
I have the honor to acquaint you that I have shipped on board the Adelaide for Baltimore, John Mun Master, two half pipes Oeiras Wine of the Vintage of 1798, which I address’d to Genl Smith. The House from which I obtained it, is the only one in this City that had any; but I am apprehensive Sir that it will not prove altogether agreeable to your taste, it appearing to me a little too sweet to...
I was duly honored with your favours of the 19th. & 20 July, inclosing the first & second of a bill of Exchange drawn by James Madison Esquire on James Maury Esqr. of Liverpool for three hundred dollars, which I endorsed payable at four shillings & six pence each, to prevent Mr Madison losing by the Exchange, dollars being worth 4/9 in England. Although, Sir, I was much disappointed at the...
I had the Satisfaction to address you the 20th. Ultimo by the Ship Susan, Captn Loring for Norfolk, since which I have refrained shipping the Wine as a Gentleman informed me he had a number of pipes of pure Arruda, of the last Vintage, coming out of the Country, some of which I might have; and which I supposed would be much more agreeable than the mixed Wines. In a few days the parcel will be...
I had the honor to address you the 6 Octr. and the 14th. & 25 Novr. past, the latter accompanied by a pipe of Arruda Wine (the name of an estate within the terms of Lisbon) which I shall be happy to learn was to your satisfaction. As the amount was small I have omitted drawing for it in hopes to be favoured with your command for another when Sir I will include both in a Bill— I should oftener...
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...
The last letter I had the honor to address to you was dated the 10th. Ultimo; but not having had the satisfaction to hear from you Sir since I received your favour of the 16 April last, it is with great diffidence I venture to address you again. But when a document of such a nature as your message to both Houses of Congress lays before me, the statements it contains so highly honorable to your...
