The enclosed letter was written to go by the post of yesterday, but was omitted to be sent to the Office in season. I have thought best, upon every consideration, to fix on monday next for the day of my departure from this city. In which case, I expect to be four days in travelling to Baltimore; and as I shall be under the necessity of going by the way of Annapolis, I must calculate upon three...
I have discovered that Mr. Hallet (the Architect now at Georgetown) has a wife here who, from his poverty, is in extreme distress, near her lying in, and in want of common necessaries. He is probably too modest to make known his distresses. I therefore communicate it to you privately that the Commissioners, if they owe him any thing, may without waiting his application, furnish him with some...
T.J. has the honor to present his Compliments to Mr. C—— and to send him a memorandum of the substance of the conveyance he suggested to him as best calculated to remove the difficulties which were the subject of conversation between them. He had not the residence act under his eye at the time of writing the memorandum, not being able to get a copy of it: which must account for its deviations...
Be pleased to consider this letter as from one private individual to another. The conduct of the agents who ought to be subordinate to the Commissioners is properly viewed here. The matter remains till Mr. Johnson comes, when final measures may be taken for establishing the authority of the Commissioners. In the mean time the President apprehends that accident or malice may throw down the...
You will consider this Letter as coming from me in my private capacity; at the same time I do not object to the communication of the sentiments to your colleagues in Office. You will recollect no doubt that I yielded my assent to Mr Greenleaf’s first proposition to purchase a number of Lots in the Fedl City (altho’ I thought the price he offered for them was too low) because matters at that...
I have been favored with your letter of the 9th & sample of free stone from my Quarry, sent by Mr Hoban; for which I thank you both; and should be obliged to him for information of the spot from whence it was taken. I always knew, that the River banks from my Spring house, to the Ferry formerly kept by Captn Posey, were almost an entire bed of free stone; but I had conceived before the late...
Doctr. Thornton’s plan of a Capitol has been produced, and has so captivated the eyes and judgment of all as to leave no doubt you will prefer it when it shall be exhibited to you; as no doubt exists here of it’s preference over all which have been produced, and among it’s admirers no one is more decided than him whose decision is most important. It is simple, noble, beautiful, excellently...
Much time has been spent in endeavoring to reduce Major Lenfant to continue in the business he was engaged in, in proper subordination to the Commissioners. He has however entirely refused, so that he has been notified that we consider his services as at an end. The plan is put into the hands of an engraver, and will be engraved within three or four weeks. About the same time Mr. Ellicot will...
The President of the United States desirous of availing himself of your assistance in preparing the federal Seat on the Potomac, [is in hopes you will act as one of the Commissioners directed by the Law for that purpose. I have the honor now to enclose a joint commission for yourself and two others, together with] a Copy of the Proclamation meant to constitute your first direction. The...
I am estremely anxious to have a full meeting of the Commissioners--I wish you to send an express to Governor Johnson and let him know my earnestness on this head--I have directed the post master at Geo. Town to send this Letter to you (and another which has been written for this post) by express, in case you should have left Baltimore. With very great regard, I am Dear Sir your mo. obedt...
