The inclosed Letters were received this Morning. As they relate to an interesting subject and one that may require immediate attention I have thought it my Duty to forward them to you, without waiting for the return of the Secretary of State. You will of course receive by this Mail from the war office, the official Report of our having got possession of Malden which was abandoned by the Enemy....
Mr Monroe left Town this morning with an intention of spending a few days at his Plantation. Among the Papers which he left with me I found this morning the enclosed from mr onis. I know not whether mr monroe was apprised of its contents as I have been out of Town for a few days and only returned yesterday but it appears to me that they may be considered as important I have therefore...
I send you a Letter from Mr Adams of old date which was received yesterday. Those which it covers are of some interest and I believe you have not seen them before. I have also the pleasure to send a Letter from Mr Russell, and a Memorial from certain Merchants in Phia. relative to their claims on Denmark. Mr Forrest has returned from Baltimore and tells me that we may expect the translation of...
I should have answered by the last Mail, the Letter you did me the Honor to write me, expressing a hope that my Health was returning; had I not been so sick on the day of its departure that I could not sit up. In consequence of a powerful dose of medicine, I am some what better, and have begun again to take Bark tho: I very much doubt whether my Stomach is properly prepared for it. The City is...
The Packet for the Secretary ⟨o⟩f State containing the Letters which I supposed you would wish to read, is left open—and put under Cover to you. I have supposed that this would be the most convenient arrangment. Should you prefer any other you will be pleased to let me know. Mr Barlow left us yesterday intending to Lodge at Marlbro: and to get to Annapolis early today. We have furnished him...
I had the Honor some time since to receive a Letter from you , covering one for the Baroness de Staël-Hols t ein which you wished me to forward to Stockholm —at the time I received it I had hoped that I should be able to send it by mr Russell in a few days—and therefore delayed acknowledging the receipt of the Letter until I could have the pleasure of telling you that I had found so good a...
I received the enclosed Letter, from Mr Monroe this Morning. He directed that it should be shewn to Mr G Graham in the War Dept and then transmitted to you. Mr Coles left this for Boston this Morning. I have reason to think the vessel which is to take him to Europe, will not be ready sail when he gets to Boston. I received yesterday from Mr Gelston the Letter from the Dey of Algiers, without a...
I am much mortified that my Letter of the 13th Inst: and more particularly, that the Papers which were under cover with it did not go on by the Mail of that day. I had sent to the Post office to let them know that we were preparing Despatches for you and the Governor of the Mississippi Territory and to enquire when the Mail would close. I expected that they would of course detain the Mail if...
I had the Honor by the last Mail to acknowledge the receipt of your Letter of the 24th. Inst. and to inform you that a Commission for Mr Freeman as Surveyor of the Public Lands South of Tennessee had been sent to the Treasury. The Papers for Mr Poinset have been made out agreeably to your direction and sent to the Secy of State who is now at Baltimore for his Signature. Mr P. will get to...
The inclosed Papers from Governor Claiborne were sent to the Secretary of State who returned them yesterday, with a request that the Letter of the 29th July and its inclosures might be sent to you. I have thought that it would not be amiss to send that of the 30th also. With Sentiments of the most Respectful Attachment I have the Honor to be, Sir, Your Humble Servant RC ( DLC ). Claiborne’s 29...
I fear you will be greatly surprised when you hear that the Letter which you sent to me, some months since for General Kosciuzko , is yet in my possession. you stated it to be confidential, and directed it to be sent with our Despatches. Since it came to my hands, no Despatch vessel has been sent to France , nor have we had for our communications to General armstrong , any conveyance which...
I do myself the Honor to put under cover with this, three Letters for you which were received by the Hornet from France yesterday. The Letters which you sent to me some time since for M r Maury at Liverpool I forwarded as you desired under Cover to M r Russell
Mr. Monroe who returned last Night has seen the enclosed, and directed me to send it to you. I am sorry to say that an unexpected delay has taken place in getting the translation which we had looked for, from Baltimore It seems that the Gentleman who undertook to make it, finds an Arabic Dictionary necessary to the completion of it, and that such a thing is not to be had in Baltimore. We have...
I was very much surprised this Morning when Mr Smith told me you had not received Genl. Turreau’s Letters—relating to a Vessel which is building at Baltimore, as he says “for the revolted Blacks of St Domingo”—for I was fully persuaded that I put them under Cover to you with the Laws of the last Session which you wrote for. I yet hope that this will turn out to be the case, for I cannot find...
Mr Jones of the Treasury informed me yesterday that Mr Gallatin wished me to send to you or to himself, copies of the Letters written to Mr Pinkney in the beginning of Decr 1808, enclosing Mr Campbell Report on our foreign Relations, and also a copy of Mr Pinkneys Letter giving an account of his Interview with Canning between the 10th & 23d Jany 1809. In compliance with this wish, I have now...
The enclosed was received yesterday under Cover to mr Monroe with a Letter from mr Pinkney requesting him to forward it to you. As mr Monroe will not return until tomorrow I have thought that I should right in sending it by the mail of today. I hope that mrs Madison has entirely recovered her Health; and that you find the exercise and partial relaxation from Business, which you are permitted...
I have the Honor to forward to you by this Mail a copy of a Letter received yesterday from Mr Robertson, and also copies of a letter from Mr Pinkney and its inclosures. The originals have all been sent to the Secretary of State. I retained for you the Quarterly Review and Cobbets Register, which came with Mr Pinkneys Letter. You will receive them by the Mail which takes this. I was very happy...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 26th Ult: and immediately called on Mr Bradley, who promised to direct that the Letter for Mr Haumont should be sent on to Savanna. Of the inclosed communications from Governor Holmes and Mr Robertson, we have taken Copies for the Secretary of State as the Mail goes to Bath on Tuesday. I beg to be presented to Mrs Madison and to assure you of the...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 7th. directing me to send a Blank Commission to Mr. Dallas for the Collector at Waldsboroug. We have Blanks with your signature for such Commissions but they want the signature of the Secretary of State. As there is reason to believe that he will be here today I hope it will be in my power to forward on the Commission signed as you direct that it...
I have the Honor to forward to you some English News Papers received at this office on Saturday. They were directed to the Secretary of State by Mr. Pinkney, and forwarded from New York by Mr Erwing. We received no Letter either from Mr Pinkney or Mr Erwing. It is stated however, in the News Papers that the latter is coming on from New York with Dispatches. There are private Letters in Town...
I received this Morning the Letter which you did me the Honor to write to me on the 30th Ult. and shall before next Mail look thro: the Registers left here by Mrs Skipwith for the purpose of ascertaining whether they contain any entries or Copies corresponding to the Papers you have asked for. Our Records do not shew that any delegated Power has been given by the President under the Law of...
I had the Honor to receive this Morning your Letter of the 26 th Feb y covering two Packets—the one for General Kosciuszko —the other for M r Short . I know of no safe oppertunity now offering for France ; but I presume we shall have one ere long and I will take care to avail myself of it, to send these Packets in the way you point out. I beg you to beleive, Sir, that so far from being a...
Mr Monroe wrote me from your House on the 20th. that copies of certain Letters in the Dept. were to be sent to you. By some accident however his Letter was delayed so that I did not get it until late the day before yesterday. I now enclose Copies of all these Letters except the official Letter to Mr. Harris, that I hope to be able to send on to you tomorrow. To these Papers I add an Extract...
In corroboration of what is stated in this Letter, it may not be improper to remark to the President that a Gentleman who was recently in this City from Caracas (Mr Picornell) stated to Mr Thos Brent that Mr Scott was held in some measure as a Prisoner and not permitted to carry on any corresp[ond]ence. This if true, accounts for the circumstance of no Letter having been received from him. I...
I had the Honor by the last Mail to acknowledge the receipt of your Letter of the 16th Inst. covering a Check for $1200—and requesting that I would remit you the amount in Virginia Notes one half by the last Mail and one half by this. In compliance with this request I had the Honor to send you by the last Mail (18th Inst) $200 in notes of the B of Virginia that were not cut, and the one half...
Capt Austin of the Ship Persia states the circumstances of an illegal Blockade to which he was subjected in the Port of one of the Native Powers in India, by the British altho they were not at war with that Power. Also commercial Regulations in India. RC ( DNA : RG 59, ML ). Undated; conjectural date assigned based on Henry Austin to James Monroe, also undated but filed at 13 Jan. 1817...
Mr Monroe has, I presume, informed you that he had returned into the Country. He was not well when he was here, and as there was little probability of his being able to do any thing immediately with Mr Bagot either in relation to the Fisheries or the Naval armaments on the Lakes he thought it unnecessary to remain. He had several conversations with Mr Bagot on the latter subject and thought at...
The inclosed Paper was put into my hands yesterday by a Friend who called my attention to the Letter from Genl Turreau which it contains. There were parts of this Letter which did not appear new to me. I have examined our files and do not find such a Letter upon them. I have therefore supposed that this is probably a translation of the Letter from Genl Turreau which was returned to him on...
Among the Papers which were recieved from you today is a Letter from Colo Johnson recommending F-C Sharp as Secretary of the Illinois Territory, on which you have put a memo asking whether the Office is vacant. So far as we are informed it is not. Mr Pope has given no Notice of his Resignation, or of his intention to resign; but it is stated in some of the Letters, recommending a Capt Phillips...
The Letter which you did me the Honor to write to me on the 10th Inst. I received yesterday, together with those which it covered. I have now the pleasure to return Mr. Adams’s (Letter) de cyphered: with the other I can as yet do nothing. I will make an effort before the departure of your next Mail to find out generally its objects; but I am by no means confident that I shall be able to do...
