I duly recd. your two favors of Aug. 10. & Decr. 9th. 1815. but during so busy a season, that I have been obliged to postpone the acknowlegement of them, to the present date. The picture you give of the Dutch humiliation as exemplified in the tone of the Baron de Nagel, on the violation of the local sovereignty in the case of the seaman impressed, exceeds what I could have inferred from the...
I am just favored with yours of the 19h. Ulto. I need not say that I should have been particularly happy in seeing you before your departure for Europe, if circumstances had permitted. Having retired for a while to my farm, I am disappointed of the pleasure of even a substituted interview with Mr. Everett. The Secretary of State however whom I left at Washington, will have an opportunity, of...
¶ To William Eustis. Letter not found. 21 December 1814. Acknowledged in Eustis to JM , 29 Dec. 1814 , as informing Eustis of his appointment as U.S. minister to the Netherlands and enclosing his commission.
It has been in view for some time to counterplace Mr. Changuion by an Envoy Extraordinary & Minister Plenipotentiary to his Sovereign Prince; and I have had you in my thoughts for the service. I postponed however consulting you on the subject, on the calculation that it could be done at any time without inconvenient delay to the object. Circumstances now exist which render an immediate...
We have just recd an Envoy from the new Sovereign of the U. Netherlands, & wish to cultivate useful relations between the 2 Countries, by a prompt return of the Civility. Will you permit me to name you to the Senate, for the purpose of counterplacing him? It will be very convenient to receive an early answer, & if my wishes should be gratified, that you be ready for an early departure for your...
I have just been favored with yours of the 7th. instant. Whatever may be the weight of your observations, it would be difficult to act on the view they take of the subject, complicated as it necessarily is with some other views of it; passing by the incompetency of the Executive alone to consummate the arrangement suggested. I may not be able to do full justice to impressions, some of which at...
Will you permit me to inclose for your consideration, a commission which may be recommended by the advantage of local conveniency? It will not be put on record untill your decision shall warrant, which it will be agreeable to receive as soon as it may be reasonably expected. Accept my best respects & regards Facsimile of RC (James D. Julia Auctioneers, Auction of 4–5 Feb. 2010, lot 2043;...
I have received your letter of yesterday, with the impressions which could not but result from your purpose of retiring from an office so nearly related to that which has been entrusted to me, in which your services have been co-eval with mine, and in which I have witnessed the zeal and constancy of your exertions for the public good, under difficulties peculiarly arduous & trying. In bearing...
Th: Jefferson asks permission of the Secretary at war to discharge what he believes to be a duty in making known the proffers of the writer of the inclosed, for which purpose he incloses his letter. of the writer he never before heard, nor knows any thing more than from the letter. he only recollects that there was a family of that name over the mountains when he used formerly to visit that...
Yours of the 8th. has but just come to hand. I return the letters from Genl. D. I shall set out tomorrow morning for Washington & proceed by way of Fredg. expecting to reach Washington on Monday. Meantime will you resolve the arrangement recommended with respect to Connecticut Volunteers? Friendly respects RC ( PHi : Daniel Parker Papers).
