I duly received your letter & will of course see La Fayette and procure the busts. The Peacock will, it is said, be ready on Wednesday, and we expect to sail on that day. I do not contemplate a long residence in France and hope that I may soon be permitted to return to America which I leave with a heavy heart. In the expectation of having again the pleasure in a short time of seeing you, and...
Cleveland being at the mouth of Cayuga, the Huron river at the mouth of which the Ohio militia have been landed, is certainly that which empties into Lake Erie between the rivers Cayuga & Sandusky. The letter being dated 27th instt., Huntingdon cannot be expected within less than a week. In the mean while I am most decidedly of opinion that no information he may bring, can or ought to alter...
I enclose for your signature an authority in the usual form empowering me to negotiate a loan with the Bank of the United States, if you approve of the terms which I had proposed & which have been accepted. The correspondence with the Bank is enclosed. If the Charter is not renewed, a loan to the same amount (3,750,000 dollars) must be negotiated in 1811, to repay this. If the Charter is...
Understanding that the law authorising a loan has passed, I beg leave to submit the propriety of requesting the Secretaries of the War and Navy departments to prepare estimates of the probable monthly expenditures of each of the said departments to the end of the present year. The extent of the loan, the time of opening it, and the dates at which its several instalments should be made payable,...
I have much regretted that a detention in my journey to this place prevented my arriving at Baltimore till after your nephew ’s departure . I had brought with me letters for Geneva which I have sent after him. M r Erving takes duplicates, and I will send triplicates on my arrival at Paris ; so that I hope that he will experience no disappointment on that account. I found the institutions and...
I have received your’s of 16 th ult o , and, from Dufief , the work of M r Tracy , for La Fayette . I had become acquainted with M
I have the honor to enclose two letters from the district attorney of Georgia, respecting the misbehaviour of Benjamin Wall Marshal for that district. The business of the Savannah custom house had been transacted in so improper manner for a great length of time by the successive collectors, that unable to arrange & understand their respective accounts, I was obliged to send there last winter...
Memoranda Mr Armstrong’s letter 1. Preference to be given to contracts for supplying the army with provisions. This is so indubitable that how any hesitation on the subject could take place is not easily understood. That branch of military expenditure is the only one (pay excepted) which is well administered & under a good accountability. If it was practicable to extend the same system (of...
I enclose two letters from Europe, one from La Fayette , who desired that I should bear witness to his constant endeavours, under all circumstances, in support of the cause of liberty, and to his undiminished affection for his American friends & particularly for yourself. I was much gratified by the receipt of your kind letter of March last brought by M r Ticknor . Your usual partiality to me...
I have ultimately decided not to go to France, and write this day accordingly to the Secretary of State. I am fully sensible of the efforts you made to keep me in the Treasury, of the unpleasant situation in which my absence & that effort placed you, as well as of the friendly motives which, combined with your view of public utility, induced you to give me this last proof of your high regard...
