I have recd. your favor of the 25th. Ulto. inclosing one to you from Mr. Vansittart; which I now return as you requested, after having submitted it to the Perusal of the President.

I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 29th. ult. enclosing one to the Auditor which was handed to him. The President having directed that your charges for presentation and Christmas presents and for stationary be admitted to your credit in the books of the Treasury, the letter of which a copy is inclosed was transmitted to the Auditor as his guide.

An occasion has occurred, in relation to a demand set up by the proctors, who have conducted the American suits, in London, on account of captures, to request the favor of your stating how far they are supported in it by any promise made by you.

It is a fact to be regretted, though...
I now return you the M.S. history of Bacon’s rebellion with many thanks for the communication. it is really a valuable morsel in the history of Virginia. that transaction is the more marked as it was the only rebellion or insurrection which had ever taken place in the colony before the American revolution. neither it’s cause nor course have been well understood, the public records containing...
I have rec’d. & communicated to the Committee of the Senate the information contained in your favor of the 9th. which clearly shews that the Convention of May 12, with G. B is not to be construed by any reference to that of Apl. 30. with France. I am mortified at troubling you on a subject which more than any other, is in itself unworthy the attention of either of us, but which is obtruded on...
I cannot better fulfill the object of the Committee of which Mr Adams is Chairman, than by inclosing you his letter to me explaining it. Writing from my house, where a copy cannot be conveniently taken, I am induced to avoid delay, by sending you the original, which I ask the favor of you to return with your answer.
