I have the honor respectfully to submit to your consideration the inclosed Memoir. A few hundred copies have been prepared in order to subject it to the examination of my fellow citizens and to the judgment of gentlemen in public life. Enquiries into the means of attaining public good, and escaping public evil, can never do harm and may be useful if made with sobriety, honesty & industry. If...
I had the honor to write you a hasty line at day light yesterday morning. Suffer me to obtrude upon you a few personal and public considerations. I sincerely believe that a considerable portion of our present difficulties have arisen from the injuries to the operations & system of supply, which have grown out of the measures since the spring of 1809 upon the subject of its organization. I am...
In the winter of 1806/7, the writer of this note was so deeply impressed with the despotic military course of the governments of Europe, that a fixed anxiety took possession of his mind on account of the secret hostility to our form of Government, which he believed to be the theory of all & the design of some of the official statesmen of the old world. Among the most efficient means of defence...
A real necessity for relief, and not an intention to injure any one obliges me to make the address, which I have now the honor to present, with the most sincere regret. You will remember, that in the latter part of March 1812, a law was passed to abolish the Purveyors office and establish those of a commissary general & deputies. In the beginning of April W. Jones Esqre was appointed Commy...
The great intrinsic importance of Banking institutions, both associated and incorporated, will be considered, I trust, by you as a sufficient apology for this respectful solicitation of a small portion of your valuable time. The system of commerce and credit, and the laws of property in the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Ireland have been considered, as on the whole, the most perfect in...
I respectfully trust you will excuse this second letter, when you know the circumstances, under which it is written. Since I had the honor to address you on the 17th. Instant, I have received very urgent tho’ polite applications from Jacob Eustis, Esquire, of Boston, Messrs. Gansevort & Lagrange of Albany & Aaron R. Levering, Esquire, of Baltimore all late agents for this office to Settle or...
I am informed by my friend & neighbour Mr. Du Ponceau, that he has received a letter from our Consul Mr. Lee, at Bordeaux, from which he understands, that Mr. Lee is about to leave his residence & station there. The causes and circumstances are apparently political connected with the opinions, feelings and prejudices, which have grown out of the period between the arrival of the late Emperor...
It is only from a desire to reserve from the public files of the war department an application, which might wear the appearance of complaint, where none is intended, that I have ventured to do my self the honor to address the requests in this letter to you. In the week preceding the cessation of my operations as Purveyor, I made applications to the war department for the name of an officer...
In proportion as new, solemn and unlooked for duties and trials come upon you, I find myself supported by my confidence in your heart and mind and public & personal exertions. Three of my sons are gone to the field in the Philada. volunteer corps which marched last week, one remains assistant Secy to the general committee of defence, and is enrolled in a company which forms part of stationary...
I respectfully request permission to submit to your perusal the enclosed papers, merely for information. You will appreciate the injury to the service & myself from the unprecedented exclusion of a late officer from his books and papers. Mr. Mifflin, late deputy commissary, who first made the obstructions appears on the books a debtor in $444. & never returned an answer to my request that he...
