It is said that the Consulship of Lisbon is vacant. If so, permit me to recommend with more than common earnestness Pemberton Hutchinson the son of my former friend Doctr. Hutchinson. The name is dear to every republican in this State both in city & country. And I am assured that the son by his talents & standing deserves the appointment. In one respect he has an advantage, that of being...
In support of the suggestions heretofore made against permitting Gen. Armstrong to raise a volunteer force on different principles from those recognized by law and adopted elsewhere, I enclose 3 advertisements from the late New York papers. Whilst such improper encouragement is given for a local force, it will be impossible to recruit for the army or for general purposes; and the general...
I did not write till I could inform you where I was going; as otherwise I had nothing to communicate. The lameness of my horses & the late season have induced me to give up my western excursion, instead of which I will treat Mrs. Gallatin with a short visit to her mother in New York. We will be there about the 21st instt., remain a week and return so as to be here about 2d or 3d Octer. I do...
The difficulties suggested by Col. Taylor in his letter to the President of the 26h. of May last, are not of a recent date, but have been a source of much inquietude to those who are particularly interested, for many years past. By the cession of the state of Virginia made to the United States in the year 1784, of the Territory North West of the River Ohio, all that tract of land lying between...
The sums which had been previously accumulated in the Treasury, together with the receipts during the year ending on the 30th day of Septr. last (& amounting to more than nine millions of dollars) have enabled us to fulfill all our engagements and to defray the current expences of Government without recurring to any loan. But the insecurity of our commerce and the consequent diminution of the...
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...
22 January 1813, Treasury Department. Submits statements in conformity with the resolution of the Senate dated 20 Jan. “For all the Treasury notes which have been disposed of, credit has been given, by the respective Banks, to the Treasurer of the United States, on the days from which such notes, respectively, were dated & commenced to bear interest.” RC and enclosures ( DNA : RG 46,...
I enclose a statement of the regular force in Canada (Quebec excepted) transmitted to me yesterday by Mr Astor, which I believe may be relied upon. From another quarter the garrison at Quebec has been stated at about 3000 effective men; but this last statement is conjecture. The militia most likely to be embodied & disposed to resist is that of the settlements along the river St Lawrence from...
The month I have already spent in Paris has been necessarily devoted in a great degree to my private arrangements; and I am only within two days settled in my house. Various considerations induce me to think that it will be proper to open soon the discussion of the subject of indemnities with this Government; & I believe that they expect it. In making my compliment to the King, I took care,...
Virginia military lands in the State of Ohio By Act of 23 March 1804 (Vol. 7. pages 89 & 90) it is provided 1. that the parties shall complete their locations within three years after the passing of the act (vizt. before 24 March 1807) 2. that those whose locations shall have been made within that part of the territory to which the Indian title has been extinguished shall return their surveys...
