The inclosed paper contains the result of what has passed between Mr. Smith & Mr. Erskine. You will see that it puts an end to the two immediate difficulties with G. B. and has the air of a policy in her, to come to a thorough adjustment. It remains to be seen whether the pride or the prudence of France is to prescribe the course which she will take in consequence of this new state of things....
I have received your letter of Oct: 29 covering the resolutions of the 119 Regiment of the Virginia Militia. The Spirit which these resolutions express, is the more to be approved and relied on, as it is the result of an examination into the foreign aggressions committed against the United States, & into the proceedings of the Government in consequence of them. A conviction of the justice of...
I should feel my own reproach, in acknowledging at this date yours of Decr. 4. if I did not feel at the same time an apology, which I am sure your friendly candor will admit, in the peculiar pressure of public duties, during the interval. I have not however been unmindful of the object of your letter, and should have even have [ sic ] taken steps towards it, but for my ignorance of the...
I recd. at the same time your two letters of the 1st. & 5th. It was found that the appt. of a Judge to succeed Mr. Nelson, had taken place a week or two before. Your name had been brought into view under high auspices, but it does not appear that your willingness to accept the office (or the sufficiency perhaps of your health) was counted on. You say nothing on the subject of Merinoes; which...
I duly recd. yours inclosing a sample from your long fleeced Ewe. I have seen no ⟨way?⟩ particularly capable of deciding on its merits. I suspect the question of its value depends on the weight of the fleece, finding that wool nearly as long is not very rare in certain breeds, and that the coarseness of its staple brings it under the denomination of Combing wool. A chance only, of turning the...
Letter not found. Ca. 5 December 1811. Acknowledged in Jackson to JM, 8 Dec. 1811 . Conveys news that William Henry Harrison and his army have returned safely to Vincennes. Expresses hope that Congress will act decisively.
As the Intelligencer will not publish the message & documents just laid before Congress, till tomorrow, and not leave this till friday, I send you a copy of the Message. It is justified by the documents, among which are the original , credential & instructions from the Govr. of Canada, and an original letter from Earl of Liverpool to him, approving the conduct of the Secret Agent. This...
Your favor of Mar. 30. came safe tho’ rather slowly to hand. It is much to be regretted that in the military appts. any errors shd. be committed, which may damp the spirits of those who feeling most the wrongs of their Country would be most ardent in avenging them. The course adopted was, in a general view, mo⟨st⟩ likely to avoid the errors incident to casual & irresponsible recommendations....
I inclose with a few other Newspapers one containing the Decln. of war, which will supply the place of the Natl. Intelligencer, should this miscarry. I inclose also a handbill just recd. giving acct. of the Assassination of Percival. What effect this incident may have on the British Coun[c]ils, can not be anticipated without further knowledge of its causes & circumstances. It may possibly...
I have recd. your favor of the 21st. I cannot too much applaud Your zeal & that of your associates, in efforts to retrieve what has been lost by the want of that or something else in others. The present sacrifices you are yourself making call for peculiar acknowledgments. I am constrained at the same time to remark that according to the view taken here, of the prospects before Genl. Harrison,...
