Yours of the 19th. came to hand by the last post; but that allows us so little time that I could not answer by it’s return. I had not before heard of mr. Latrobe’s claim of Lenthall’s salary in addition to his own. That some of Lenthall’s duties must have fallen on him I have no doubt; but that he could have performed them all in addition to his own so as to entitle himself to his whole...

Since my letter of yesterday I have recieved yours of the 27th. & 28th. and in the former the 500. D. for mrs. Trist. The bronze time piece mentioned will run a fortnight, but I found it better to wind it up once a week, as during the 2d. week the greater expansion of the spring occasioned her to lose time. With respect to newspapers, none can now come to Washington for me. Of those which,...
April 1809. Sends on letter “from Mr. Lee” recommending William Bass for the consulate at Antwerp and mentions that Walter Livingston, Jr., may deserve consideration for the secretary’s post at the Paris legation, if a vacancy occurs. “I dont know but I ought to make an apology once for all for consenting sometimes to be the organ of such applications. It is a business I very much dislike but...
April? 1809. Canby [a Quaker who may have been acquainted with JM’s wife] expresses concern over the godless ways of the American people and fears divine vengeance. He takes consolation from the fact JM is a leader attempting “to govern among a tumultuous & Unholy generation.” RC ( DLC ). 1 p. Undated. Probably written shortly after JM’s inauguration.
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 enclose a proclamation for the sale of the public lands in the Bend of Tenessee river Miss. tery., together with the recommendations for the two offices therewith connected. The memorandum will explain all I can say on the subject. P. Manning collector of Perth Amboy continues to act in a manner which renders his removal necessary. He had after improperly clearing the cotton vessels, refused...
You will observe by the enclosed letter, that Mr. Dallas wishes to know, what he is to do with the indictment against Bartholemew White, one of Burr’s men. The fact is, that Genl. Wilkinson had left Washington for New-Orleans sometime before I recd. the letter enclosing a commission to take his deposition. I agree pretty much with Mr. Dallas in opinion that White is too small game for us to...
Having Occasion Last Winter to pursue a Man, who ran away in my debt, into Canada, I found that the natives of Canada are disposed to think well of their country, on account of their Priests instilling into their minds that in case the Americans, should come to Revolution in their Country, that the Americans would Rob their Churches, prostitute their Religion, and Rob them of their property....
I owe to you an apology for the resignation of the office of Governor of the Illinois Territory which you so lately had honoured me with & I had agreed to accept —When I reached this State a vacancy had taken place in the court of appeals the spring term of which was immediately to commence—Owing to the unexpected absence of another of the judges an apprehension was entertained unless the...
