Some very interesting domestick concerns which could not well be postponed, seconded by the state of the wound on my leg, prevented my having the pleasure of waiting on you in the last week, but I shall be with you to morrow if no accident presents an obstacle to it.

He will communicate the result in both cases; but I find, upon an explanation, that only one of the Whaling vessels is known to have been seized by the Spaniards, though there are 24 at risque. The dispatch from Mr. Harris is an unpleasant one;...

§ From James Kilbourn. 24 December 1813, Washington. “Being absent when the other members of the Ohio Representation forwarded their recommendations of a person for the Marshals Office in the District of Ohio, and being willing to take an equal responsibillity on myself in that respect with my Colleagues I have thought it proper in this manner to suggest, that I consider Doctr.

Lieutenant Stewart when delivering to you this letter, will at the same time present for your acceptance, a specimen of the cloth made at the Steubenville Woolen factory lately established by Mr. Wells, Mr. Baldwin & myself, and managed entirely by Mr. Orth an excellent Artist from Aix-la-Chapelle. We flatter ourselves, that the texture, colour, & dressing of this cloth, will justify the good...
In a late communication I did myself the Honor to apprise you that I had taken the field as Commander in Cheif. Every practicable exertion is now making to place the State in an efficient posture of defence. For this purpose large requisitions have been made on the Militia, which added to the former requisitions, made since the commencement of the war, has produced a call amounting to nearly...
