J. Madison requests a consultation with the Heads of Departments today at 12 o’clock. RC ( PHi : William Jones Papers). Unsigned. In Edward Coles’s hand. Docketed by Jones: “Invitation to Cabinet Council.”
I am requested to enclose to you a letter from John Kingman Junior to me of the 16th instant. Of my own knowledge I can say nothing but that the young man appears intelligent; that he belongs to one of the few towns, in this State which are attached to the present national Administration, and not hostile to the war. All the gentlemen by whom he says he has been recommended, I presume are in...
I have been introduced through the entreaties and tears of the aged and the young, to an acquaintance with a rule of your office, which I beg leave to say, is as honorable to yourself, as it is promotive of the cause of morality, Religion, and the Service of the Country. I refer to the rule lately applied in the case of young Ritche, on account of his having been accessory to a fatal duel...
The remarks in the inclosed, relating to the organization &c of the B. Bank at Richmond, if not intended for your eye, belong to it more than to mine. Mr. Corbin, you know was one the Commrs. at Richd. and may not be disinclined to be included among the Directors there. I have no other ground however for a conjecture, than what his letter presents. He is a gentleman, who was among my early...
In persuance of the act of Congress providing that in case of absence from the seat of Government, of the Secretary of the Treasury, the President of the United States may authorise a Person to perform the Duties of that officer, during his absence, I am to ask the favor of you, and hereby authorise you to perform the same. RC ( PHi : William Jones Papers). In a clerk’s hand, signed by JM. JM...
I inclose an affecting letter from Mr. Coffin . It is I suppose too late to take it even into consideration. Were it otherwise, and his recommendations as may be the case equal to those in behalf of Mr. Haff, who can not well have more merit, and is less in want, it might not be amiss to re-weigh the subject. Friendly respects I return the proceedgs in the case of Lt. Sevier, with the...
I return the Transfer signed as sent to me. The inclosed communication from the Vice President, is a striking proof of the traiterous & scandalous practices which escape punishment in certain quarters. It will merit whatever attention can be usefully given to it by the Navy or Treasury Dept. The fact charged on the Collector of Newbury Port, if verified, subjects him to the severest notice....
I have recd. yours of the 14th. It will be well to forward a Commission immediately to Mr. Morgan of N.O. who may be desired whether he accepts it or not, to send to Mr. Smith, the information needed from a Collector. Perhaps he may be able to furnish the like information relative to other districts of the State. I have not time to send by the present mail, the places of residence of the...
Since the rect. of yours of I have had the pleasure of those of the 16th. & 18th. inst. Warrington appears to have acquitted himself with an éclat, & to possess talents, that justly fix him in the Constellation of our naval heroes. Can any thing be properly done for him, in reward of his achievement? Altho his force may have been a little superior to that of his antagonist, the difference in...
I have just recd. a letter of the 6th. inst: from the Secretary of war, in which he states that an addition of half a Million to the Monthly allotment of 1½ Millions for war expenditure, is indispensable to the completion of the campaign; and that he has written to the Paymaster, to furnish a sum amounting to about $400,000 called for by the estimate of paymaster Lee, as will be seen in the...
