You promised to send me the documents which I left in your hands when at Washington as soon as copies were made of them, or Mr. Rose delivered to you the originals. As it will be necessary for me to recur to those documents in the letter wh. I intimated to you it was my duty to write you on the subject of the treaty lately signed by Mr. Pinkney & myself, with the British commissrs., and it is...
I heard last night of Mr. Lee at Bordeaux that my dispatches from that place on my way here original & duplicate to you, have both miscarried, one set in the brig george which was wrecked in the bay of Biscay, the other in the ship mars captn. Wilson, on the coast of Ireland. I regret this extremely because I began to hope daily of hearing from you in reply. I have since sent by Mr. Gorham as...
I am happy in yr. acceptance of the department of State in the new admn. & sincerely hope yr. service will prove honorable to yourself, and prosperous to yr. country. Nor have I a doubt of the result, since we have had enough of crisis, to teach the people how to estimate an admn. which is attached & faithful to republican principles. Mr. Jefferson’s address delivered on taking the oath gives...
We have the pleasure to transmit you a copy of a Note from Mr. Fox of yesterday which announces the appointment of Lords Holland and Auckland to meet us on the subjects which are embraced by our joint Commission. We flatter ourselves that we shall enter on this business in the course of a few days, and that we shall be able in a short time afterwards to speak with some confidence of the...
I had the honor to transmit you with my letter of the 4. inst. a copy of a correspondence with Mr. Canning relative to the late aggression in the case of the Chesapeak frigate. You will receive with this a copy of a more recent one on the same Subject. By Mr. Canning’s queries in his last note I was led to consider it as preparatory to an embargo on American vessels. I could not conceive why...
I ought to have answer’d sooner your favor of the 5th., but I have been so unsettled since my return, and so much interrupted that I have equally neglected my friends & my private affairs. I have recd. the note for 300. dolrs. wh. I did not wish you to have sent, being altogether ignorant of the claim wh. I have to any sum beyond what I had before recd. This however will be adjusted between us...
I must request that you will be so good as to forward the enclosed to Mr Divers. As it relates to an object of some importance to me I am very desirous that it reach him soon. On publick topicks I have nothing to add to our joint communication. We have had many difficulties to encounter with this govt., & I hope that such will never occur again in our relations with it. If a favorable...
Permit me to present to yr. acquaintance Mr. Camp of Culpepper a young man who was presented to me by Mr. Wm. Lambert, who formerly wrote in Mr. Beckley’s office, and likewise by Mr. Pollard of this place who is his relative. His object is to obtain some office, or rather employment, under you if to be had, or in the treasury department if yr. office can give him no place. By Mr. Lamberts...
It is probable I may sail in the remittance Captn. Law in Jany. to be with you the last of Feby or first of March. Nothing will prevent it but the season, especially shod. it be unfavorable. However I will write you by the John Bulkeley for Phila. which sails next week. I shall be able then to bring you full information of the state of our affairs in this Country, & on the continent, & it is...
You will have been surprized at not hearing from us sooner on the business confided to us, under the Commission with which we are honored by the President. The delay proceeded from a desire to give you some satisfactory information of our progress in it which it was not in our power to do. It happened unfortunately, just about the time of Mr Pinkney’s arrival, on the 24. ulto., that Mr. Fox...
