I was this day honored by your Letter of the 25 th In st and shall immediately write to Mr Robert Graham that you wish him to keep the wild Geese which he promised you, until you can send to him for them. Mr Graham lives about a mile below Dumfries on the South side of the Creek, on which the Town stands. Permit me, Sir, to offer my Congratulations on the success of the measures dictated by...
The inclosed was written on the day I received the Letter you did me the Honor to write me —accident prevented its going by the last Mail; but I hope it will yet be in time to inform you of the Residence, and to give you the name of the Gentleman who promised you the wild Geese. I have written to him as you requested, and I beg you to beleive, Sir, that I shall always be proud to receive and...

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...
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...
I have been honored with your Letter of the 29th of last Month. I regret very much that I have it not in my power to throw some light on the characters of the Gentlemen who are placed in nomination before you for the Legislative Council of the Mississippi Territory. Mr Shields is the only one of them of whom I have any recollection and with him my acquaintance was very slight. He is a young...
I have the honor to inclose a Letter from Mr Daschkoff and an Exequatur made out in compliance with it. It is said that Mr Jackson has arrived at Annapolis.

I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 2d Inst. I shall, as it appears to be your wish, send Judge Spriggs Letter to Mr Rodney. Mr Gallatin has seen Mr Grymes Letter; but does not consider it necessary to remodel his Instructions to the Collectors: The Secretary of State will I beleive write to Mr Grymes to recover Costs in all Cases where it can yet be done, from the owners of the...
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...
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...
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 had this Morning the Honor to receive your Letter of the 7 th Inst: requesting that I would send you by the return of Post the Memoire of Moreau de Lislet on the subject of the Batture . This Paper is, I believe, in the hands of the attorney General and agreeably to your directions I have written to him to send it either to you or to me as soon as possible. M r Poydrass no doubt has it; but...

I am requested by Mr Smith to forward to you the inclosed Papers which I have this Moment received from him. He also desires me to say that he accompanies Mrs Smith to Bath, and will be there on Sunday next. The Memoire of Moreau de Lislet is not in this Dept.

I beg to be presented to Mrs Madison and to assure you of the...
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...
Yesterdays Mail brought on the Dispatches from Mr Pinkney which had been entrusted to Mr Erwing. They were forwar[d]ed by the latter from Phia. The inclosed is a Copy of the last and only important Letter from Mr Pinkney. From his other communications it appeared, so well as I can recollect (from the very hasty perusal I gave them, before they were put up for the Bath Mail which closed...
I had the Honor to receive your Letter of the 10th Inst. yesterday. Th[…] Mr Erwing was with us; but he went on to Alexandria in the afternoon, where he intended to take a Carriage for the purpose of going to Montpelier. He took with him the Letter he had for you, expecting to be at your House nearly as soon as the Mail which lea⟨v⟩es this today. I return agreeably to your directions the Copy...
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 yesterday to receive your Letter of the 16th. and have this Morning been unsuccessfully employed in looking over Mr Bowdoin’s, Genl Armstrong’s, and Mr Skipwiths file, for the Paper a Copy of which you want. I shall renew the search tomorrow. We have no Parisian file in the office and as neither Mr Brent nor myself have any recollection of this Paper I have thought that you may...
I had the Honor to write to you the day before yesterday to say that I had not been able to find the Paper transmitted from Paris previous to the Departure of Mr Bowdoin from that Place, a Copy of which you directed to be sent to you. I have continued the search thro: the files of Mr Bowdoin, Genl Armstrong, Mr Skipwith & Mr Barnet; but have not been so fortunate as to find any traces of this...
The inclosed are Copies of Letters from Governor Holmes and Mr Robinson relative to the affairs of West Florida. The originals were sent to the Secretary of State. We yesterday recieved from Mrs Skipwith two large Books entitled “Official Register” commencing in 1797 and ending in 1808.

I received this Morning the Letter you did me the Honor to write to me on the 24th Int. I shall attend to the instructions it contains some of them are already acted on. Freemans commission (for which Mr Pleasonton had a Blank[)] is sent to the Treasury—from whence, I presume it will go to him with his Instructions.

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...
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...
Agreeably to your request I have looked thro: the Registers sent here from Paris and do not find that they contain any thing in relation to the Paper you want. They are a strange compound of Public & Private Papers—tho their general Character is I think decidedly official. I understood from Mr Skipwith when he was here, that he had directed them to be sent to the Dept of State 1st Because he...
I have the Honor to send you inclosed the proceeds of your Check in my favor—in such notes as you requested that is to say— 6 of 50 = 300. 10 – 20 = 200 10 – 10 = 100— 600 in all.

The News Papers you will...
