Your favor of the 18th. was recieved in due time, and the answer has been delayed as well by a pressure of business as by the expectation of your absence from Richmond. the idea of sending a special mission to France or England is not entertained at all here. after so little attention to us from the former, & so insulting an answer from Canning such a mark of respect as an extraordinary...
Since writing my letter of yesterday it has occurred to me that the stile in which, in my letters to you, I have spoken of the mass of falsehood & calumny afloat in our country, & the impossibility of believing what is beyond the evidence of our own senses, is too strong to be published. such a fellow as Cobbet, abusing us as a nation, will quote this as testimony of it given by ourselves. the...
Such was the accumulation of business awaiting me here, that it was not till this day that I could take time to look into my letters to you. as my copies are with the Polygraph I can refer to the originals in your hands by the page and line. letter of Feb. 18. 1st. paragraph to be omitted, being merely of private business. pa. 1. l. 22. perhaps the word ‘old’ may be misunderstood, & therefore...
I recieved your letter just as I was going to bed last night and being to set out early this morning I have only had time to read your letters to mr Randolph & that of mr Giles. the former are exactly such as I ever believed you had written. they contain nothing unworthy of the purest virtue, & altho’ the views you entertained of the conduct of the Executive towards you were not such as any...
Your favor of came duly to hand, accompanied by the papers now returned, and by a note on the correspondence communicated to Congs. It appears that in most instances the parts allotted for publication coincide with your wishes. In the excepted instances, an attempt will be made, to have the confidential parts, conformed also to these, by being included in the publication ordered by the H. of...
I was mistaken in supposing Alexander Baring arrived. it is Charles Baring, not connected in Business with the other. your letter therefore must be to A. Baring as in London, and if you can send it to me by duplicates we can use one in England, & the other in France. Affectionate salutations DLC : Papers of James Monroe.
An indisposition of periodical head-ach has for some time disabled me from business, and prevented my sooner acknoleging your letter of Mar. 22. and returning that of Feb. 2. ’06. which it inclosed. the reciept of that of Mar. 22. has given me sincere pleasure. conscious that I never felt a sentiment towards you that was not affectionate it is a great relief to find that the doubts you had...
I recd last evening your favor of the 26. and now inclose the promised list of the communications to Congs. which gives as much information as can be done in that form. Where Extracts were made, they generally extended I believe to nearly the whole of the letters, it being intended that the residue should be reduced as much as motives of prudence & delicacy would permit. On examining the...
In the joint letter from you & Mr. P. of October a project on impressments is referred to which does not appear. I forget what passed with you in conversation on the subject. You will oblige me by dropping me the state of the case, and if there be any document in your hands that you will be so good as to forward it or a copy of it. It can if necessary be thrown into the mass which will be...

Mr. Rose’s mission is abortive. Communications on the...
