In conformity with the law of the United States relative to the securing of copy rights, I have the honour of transmitting to you a copy of a collection of the Laws of the general assembly of this commonwealth, and I am happy in the occasion it affords me of renewing, in some degree, that intercourse which several years ago, I had for a short time the pleasure of holding with you, and of...
I was much gratified by the letter which you lately did me the honour of addressing to me, conveying the agreable intelligence that a provision had been made in the treaty between Spain & France for a due respect to the rights of America, which could not fail of being highly pleasing to the people of this country, and (as an indication of the respect with which the government is held in...
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your circular letter of July the 20th. accompanied by the notifications to the members of congress, of their being extraordinarily convened by the president, which in the absence of the governor was delivered to me.

Having been absent from home, making preparations for a settlement in the southern part of this state, when your favour of Augst. the 30th. reached this place, it was not till some time last month that I had the pleasure of re⟨c⟩eiving it, which I mention to apologize for my not making an earlier acknowledgement of it. Believe me, sir, that I feel very grateful for your kindness, and I solicit...

§ From Harry Toulmin. 6 July 1805, Fort St. Stephen’s, Mississippi Territory. “Some time since, previously to my leaving the state of Kentucky, I observed a statement in the National Intelligencer, of my having been appointed to the office of receiver of public monies on the east side of Pearl river. Not receiving any personal information of the kind, I regarded it only as a mistake in the...
§ From Harry Toulmin. 6 July 1805. “You are informed, no doubt, that all the Vessels to and from the Country, even though bound to Fort Stoddart and clearing out from Fort Stoddart, are obliged to come to at Mobille, and to pay twelve per centum ad valorem, on their Cargoes, according to the estimate of the Spanish Officers. “Such an exaction as this you may well conceive must be ruinous to...
§ From Harry Toulmin. 8 August 1805 . “I mentioned to you in a letter some time since, that I understood that a Vessel then lying in the River was about to pass Mobille without calling. Captain Schuyler (who is just now from Orleans) tells me that she passed Mobille in the Night—that the Spaniards were exceedingly irritated, and threatened to imprison the owner of the Cargo on his return from...
