It appears that a depreciation of the paper currency of Norway has taken place which requires, for the purpose of calculating the duties, the interference of the President. I enclose for that purpose an Act for your signature; which, if you approve, please to return under cover to Mr Duvall, as I expect to leave this for New York to morrow. I also enclose for your approbation a recommendation...
On enquiring respecting a proper situation in a mercantile house for your nephew, and after consulting with some friends, I find that in order to make a proper selection, some information is wanted as to his particular object and as to his acquirements. Exclusively of retailers, West India & coasting traders &ca., there are two distinct species of Merchants on a large scale vizt. importers of...
The instructions for the person to be sent to Buenos Ayres, having been filled with the name of Gelston instead of being left blank, and he having refused to go, they are now returned in order that you may direct other copies to be made and to be returned to me as early as possible, as I have found a gentleman who appears to me peculiarly fitted in every respect for the undertaking. It is Mr...
I forgot to mention in my letter of yesterday, that in addition to the letter designating the agent to Buenos Ayres as commercial agent of the U. States for that place, a passport in the usual form appears necessary. If this also designates him as commercial agent, the usual description of the person might be omitted. Will you have the goodness to give also directions to that effect. You have...
So far as can be judged from Grymes correspondence and official acts, he has done only what was necessary to save for the United States something from Brown’s property. The Jones’s Clar⟨k’s⟩ and all the bar have as usual been as hostile as possible. It must be added that an intercepted letter from Brown to Jones, whom he thought still alive, informed him that he had at ⟨se⟩a destroyed his...
I enclose a letter from Mr Duval on the subject of Brown’s estate. I cannot recollect whether his account &a. were sent to Mr. Pinkney, but will write to day to have it done. The report by the last arrival from England is that he has recovered a part of the money from Brown. I received last night the Batture paper which I will return whenever I shall have read it. Is it intended as a brief for...
At Mr Astor’s request I enclose a letter which he read to me. I gave him no opinion on the contents. But he desired me to request that if it was not thought proper to give to the person he means to send a recommendatory letter for Mr Adams, the enclosed might be considered as private and not be sent to the Department of State. I have not yet received the papers for Mr Poinsett; but there...
I have received the papers for Mr Poinsett and delivered them to him. We have found a vessel which will sail for Rio Janeiro in two or three weeks; it is the only one bound to Brasils & there is none for La Plata even if it was advisable to go directly there. Every circumstance corroborates the opinion that England will try to govern the Spanish colonies through a nominal Spanish regency, and...
President’s message Might not the introduction, including the statement of French proceedings have a stronger colour of congratulation if not exultation of the change since last session 1. by marking more pointedly the effect produced by the last law —2. by hinting that the embarrassment heretofore experienced in deciding on proper measures was principally owing to the pressure from both...
I enclose the substance of a financial paragraph, also a statement of the receipts & expenditures of the year ending 30th Septer. last and an estimate of those of this quarter. These will supply you with all the facts on which the paragraph is founded. In the paragraph for military schools, I would place in the most conspicuous point of view (when speaking of revision of existing law) the...
