We have just rec[e]ived your Speech here and I assure you it appears to be much admired even by the Federalist of Cincinnati. Mr Rowan passed this about 10 days ago he spoke of it & your self in respectful terms, which was more than I expected from his opposition to the late Administration generally. He observed & it appeared to be assented to by several of the highest Federal characters in...
I see that Col Simons late of the U S Army & who was appointed a Commissary of Purchases for the district of St. Louis is dead. Majr. Taylor Berry of St. Louis late of the Army and who was a D. Q. M. Genl. and at the head of that dept for all that Country, would gladly accept that appointment. He was continued in Office till he closed all the business in his dept which he has done honorably to...
I have just recd a line from my friend H. Clay esqr. informing me of my rejection by the Senate. I have just written to the Secretary of War & enclosed him Mr Clays letter and requested him to hand it you afterwards. Mr C. informs me that Major Morison is to be nominated. If he appl[i]ed for the appointment or his friends urged his nomination before I was rejected I should suspect that he had...
I have had several conversations with Genl Harrison since his return from the Treaty, relative to the necessity of breaking up the party of Indians collected at Chicago & its vicinity and distroying their crops of corn. The General informs me he has recommended an expedition to effectuate that object. I assure you Sir it is the opinion of the best judges I have conversed with that such an...
Be so good as to make my best respects to Mrs. Madison & inform her I have recd. her very friendly letter of the 10h inst and will answer it shortly. I am much pleased to understand that our differences may probably be adjusted with all the Billigerents. I was at my brothers lately himself & family were well, and our fri[e]nds generally are so in this state. If Mrs. Washington is with you be...
Your well Known disposition renders any apology useless for the application I have now the Honor to make; It is too well Known and understood by every American; And precludes the possibility of doubt, of your willingness, and Goodness, to sanction views, so far as may be compatible with the public Welfare. I have a Son at Sacketts Harbor, a leiutt, on board the US: F, General Pike, who altho’...
I most sincerely congratulate you on the Certainty of your being again called on to Preside over the destinies of my beloved Country, but I more particularly congratulate my country, as I conci[e]ve it a most fortunate occurrence that could have happened, both as it relates to the Man & principle. I hope Genl Harrison will be more fortunate with the Present N. W. Army than the a[r]mies lower...
Permit me to introduce to your acquaintance Genl. James Findlay a particular friend of mine. The Genl. Commanded one of the Regiments from this state who were unfortunately Compeled to surrender prisoners of War at Detroit on the 16t. August. The Genl. has been induced to take Niagara and Genl. Dearborns head Quarter in his way to the City of Washington. I refer you to Genl. F for any...
I had the pleasure of seeing Govr. Howard lately and was much pleased in hearing from his own lips an account of his efforts in protecting the frontier of his Territory. Would it not be well to confer the rank of Brigadier Genl on Gov Howard. He is a Military Man & it appears to me that all the Troops in his Territory ought to be under his command. He would accept of it & receive either the...
Judge Coburn informs me his commission as Judge of Louisiana expires in November next during the recess of Congress; that under similar circumstances a Commission was renued (before it had expired) so as to prevent a failure of an important term of that Court. I expect the Judge will write to you on this subject and state to you the reason why it would be proper to renew his commission during...
