I have recd. yours accompanied by the Resolution of M. T. recommending 10 persons &ca. with Poindexters seclection [ sic ]. As I presume there is no blank commission signed for such a case, I must ask you to forward one without delay; and you will oblige me further, by any lights you can throw on the characters in question. I am a stranger to all of them. Should there be a blank Commission in...
I now return you the Copy of Clarke agst. Wilkinson, with my thanks for your attention in forwarding it. I have not had time to do more than to turn over a few casual pages; but having just recd. another Copy, it is unnecessary to detain that belonging to the office. I return also the letters recd. by yesterday’s mail. Would it not be proper to let Mr. Rodney have the contents of that from...
The arrival of the Mail has just brought me yours of the 1st. inst: and with it the inclosed letters from Govr. Holmes. You will observe that he concurs with Mr. P. in three of the Selections; and that the two names on which he differs, stand first in the legislative nomination. I have signed the Commission, leaving the blanks to be filled; according to the Govrs. recommendation; substituting...
I drop you this merely to intimate my purpose of setting out for Washington on friday next and to request that nothing may be forwarded after Wednesday next. Letters &c. put into the mail on that day will get to hand in time, as I shall be at home after the hour at which the Rider arrives. You will have noticed the return of the letter of Turreau, supposed to have been omitted at the office of...
The writer of the inclosed letter, sent ⟨me⟩ a long time ago, a most voluminous manuscript in French on the subject of F. & English grammer, with a wish that I might approve & patronize its publication. Having neither time nor competency to decide on the merits of the work, it was examined by a Critical judge on such subjects; who discouraged the experiment of printing it, tho’ he did justice...
I have just recd. your favor of the 8th. with the copy of Mr. P.’s letter of June 13th. The same mail brings me a letter from Mr. Erving, in which he says he should be in Washington in a few days. Having not time to write to him, be so good as to tell him, that if it should be within the scope of his arrangements, not to be stationary, I shall be happy to find his movements take this...
Letter not found. 12 August 1810. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 15 Aug. 1810 . Forwards a letter from Mr. Balch [not found] and asks Graham to consult with Mr. Jones.
Letter not found. 16 August 1810. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 20 Aug. 1810 . Requests a paper from the Paris files of the Department of State.
Your favor of the 20th. has come duly to hand. I well recollect the rect. of the paper you were searching for, and can not but think that it is somewhere in the office. It would seem, that Barnet either had not recd. the order of Skipwith to deliver the Books, or had disobeyed it. The retention of them is so palpably improper, that it justifies the suspicions entertained of some improper view...
Letter not found. 30 August 1810. Acknowledged in Graham to JM, 3 Sept. 1810 . Asks Graham to examine the registers delivered to the State Department by Mrs. Skipwith to see whether they contain the papers JM had requested earlier. Also inquires about the delegation of executive powers under the law of June 1794.
