How many hard struggles, my dear friend, would it save me, had I really parted with my last vice on the 3d. of March. I thought you had known me better: but as you do not, I must endeavor to conceal, if I cannot eradicate, what remains amiss. I recommended to the Secretary at war your proposition on the subject of clothing. he wishes to avail himself of it and has instructed the proper agent...
My ideas on the questions relative to the Active, letter of marque stated in your letter of yesterday, are as follows. 1. Letters of marque have been considered ever since the decisions of 1793. to be of a mixed character, but that the commercial character predominates; and as a commercial vessel of private property we have in some case, since the proclamation of July, considered them as not...
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.

Three days ago I answered your friendly letter of the 26th. June and mentioned that I should probably leave this place on the 25th. I now think I shall leave it on the 24th. & be with you on the 25th. if nothing unforeseen happens. I last night recieved from my daughter Eppes a letter informing me she should then be at the Louisa springs, which will induce me to go by them, and the rather as...
A tour to Boston appears of late to bring me luck; yesterday, for the third time within this fortnight, I went there and found a letter from you—This was dated the 4th: and was written the same day that I on my part was writing to you, as I hope you have by this time perceived.—This repeated pleasure has in a great measure removed the aversion I had before to visiting the metropolis, and I...
I have duly received your favor of the 9th., and am sorry to inform you, that the price of Tobacco still continues low; indeed I apprehend that even the price which Mr. G. informed you he had been offered for yours, could not be now obtained. There has been a very great drouth with us, of which probably you have heard—and which has injured the growing crop I am told immensely: this certainly...
Yours of the 23d. has been duly recd. Mr. Brent had informed me that copies of the letters from the Mediterranean had been sent to you by Mr. Smith, and therefore I did not send the originals by express. The declaration of a rupture by the Empr. of Morocco, put me at a loss what to say to Simson on the subject of the Gun carriages, and how to decide as to the letter you left with me . As the...

According to present appearances, the surprizing efforts which this country has made are likely to be crowned with complete success: it has been assisted too by a sort of fatality which seems to have accompanied the french arms from the commencement. The grossest Errors have been committed by generals of the greatest reputation; to say nothing of political Errors which have been abundant; &...

Convinced as I am that information relative to the situation of any empire now under your particular charge will be always welcome to you, (especially if such place be remote,) let such information come from whatever person or through whatsoever channel it may; I therefore take the liberty of making the following statement of facts to you, on the perusal and confirmation of which I am...
The undersigned American citizens, now in this port, under the pressure of the most serious concern, conceive it our duty to address you on a subject deeply interesting to our feelings. We are well aware that the constitutional organ, through which these communications ought to be made, is the consul or commercial agent, but as neither of these officers reside here, we are under the necessity...
I inclose a letter for Colo. C. L. Lewis of Buckisland, which, from it’s contents, will justify my asking you to send it by express & without delay. it is left open for your perusal, and you will be so good as to stick a wafer in it. immediately on recieving mr Speer’s directions, I remitted 50. D. to mr Moore of Baltimore for him. I percieve that to make up the 43½ D. you must have put in 12....
