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...
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,...
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...
In a conversation with Gen. Armstrong, he appeared disposed to make an excursion towards the scene of action on our northern frontier. I have perhaps more confidence in Gen. Dearborn than almost any other person, and for many reasons have no wish to see Gen. Armstrong unite the character of General to that of Secretary. Yet, from my knowledge of both, I think that the success of the campaign...
10 April 1811. “Mr Gallatin will do himself the honor to dine with Mr Madison on Tuesday next [16 Apr. 1811].” RC ( NN : Gallatin Papers). 1 p.
