I have to acknolege the receipt of your favors of Oct. 28. Nov. 20. 23. Dec. 18. 26. 31. and Jan. 30. By Chiappe’s letter inclosed in the last I am in hopes the difficulty respecting your character will be got over by verbally announcing yourself under some character more acceptable than that of Consul, which I suppose to be what Chiappe has in view. I wish the crisis of affairs in Marocco may...
The situation in which I have left Colo. Nichs. Lewis leaves me not without pain and doubt for the event of his disease. I hope the best, but it may turn out otherwise. Besides the general loss which will be sustained by such a death, mine will be particularly great, as I have left all my affairs in his hands. The letters I receive from the President are so pressing to go on to New York that I...
Your favor of the 18th . came to hand yesterday, and I observe mine of the 8th. was received at Monticello on the 18th. On recurring to the dates and reciept of those from Monticello, I find they have come to hand very regularly on the 10th. day.—I find that the President will leave this about the middle of July. Consequently I shall set out earlier than I had expected, as I foresee nothing...
My last letter to you, if I may believe my letter book, was Apr. 19. Yet I think I must have written to you the 26th. also, as I do not recollect the having missed writing to you or my daughter but one week, which was about the 3d. or 4th. instant. Yours of Apr. 9. 16. and May 7. [i.e. May 4] have been duly recd. Mr. Brown’s note on Clow, inclosed in the last is accepted for payment. I...
The marriage of your son with my daughter cannot be more pleasing to you than to me. Besides the worth which I discover in him, I am happy that the knot of friendship between us, as old as ourselves, should be drawn closer and closer to the day of our death. I am perfectly contented to leave to yourself the provision for your son. What you propose is liberal. I feel myself tied up by the...
In my letter of Aug. 20 . I inclosed you the 1st. of John Wilcocks’ bill on Messrs. Edwd. Mc.Culloch and Co. of London for £1077–11–9 sterl. (cost here 5000. Dollars) payable to yourself at 60. days sight to be applied to the use of our diplomatic gentlemen abroad. In my letter of the 11th. inst. I inclosed the 2d. and now the 3d. of the same bill. I have also engaged the bank of the US. to...
I received some days ago from Mr. Hylton, the gentleman who forwarded my tobacco to me, the statement below. By this it appears that there were two hhds. of which I had not notice. I presume they came during my absence, and were the two for which there was no bill of lading, and are to be added to the 39. of which I gave you a statement before. The two which he mentions last are now arrived...
The bearer hereof Mr. Robert Leslie, a watchmaker of this city, goes to establish himself in London. His great eminence will unquestionably ensure his success, if he can but be known. I have considered him and the deceased Mr. Rumsey (both born in the same neighborhood) as the two greatest mechanics I have ever met with in any country. Not to mention many other useful inventions, we are...
I am favored with yours of June 12.—Mr. Jefferson my relation had detained the letter to you till he could write back to me and inform me of the difficulty of getting to Charlottesville, and how much more convenient it would be to him to take his goods in Goochld. My business made me late in answering him, and I then repeated my request to him to apply to you, as I observe that from a want of...
I received the day before yesterday your’s of the 9th. From an expression in that, as well as the preceding one, I fear you may not have received my letters which have been regular and constant once a week, except once when the post day was perceived to be changed. I then accomodated the day of my writing to the day of the departure of the Western post from Richmond.—I have received...
