I have recd. the copy of your late Speech kindly forwarded by you. I cannot say that I concur in all your views of the subject it discusses. But I take pleasure in doing justice to the ability with which those are maintained in which I do not concur. Will you pardon me for pointing out an error of fact into which you have fallen, as others have done, by supposing that the term national applied...
Your favor of Apl. 28. was safely delivered by Aleck. Mrs. M. & myself regret that the health of Mrs. Stephenson continues so infirm. Shd a visit to us not interfere with a better course for improving it, we shall be truly happy in shewing what I hope you both believe the affectionate interest we take in its re-establishment. She has always been a peculiar favorite of Mrs. M. and I must be...
I have recd. my dear Sir your letter of the 20th. with a just sensibility to the kind feelings it expresses, and I hope you will not doubt with an unfeigned reciprocity of them.

I recd. at the same time a duplicate of the excellent pair of gloves, with which Mrs. Stevenson, allow me rather to say, my Cousin Sally has favored me. Being the work of her own hands they will impart the more warmth...
I have recd. your communication of the 29. ult, and have read it with much pleasure. It presents the doctrines of Nullification & Secession in lights that must confound if failing to convince their patrons. You have done well in rescuing the proceedings of Virga. in 98-99. from the many misconstructions & misapplications of them. The   7th. Resolution, ought to have explained the 3d. and the...
Your favor of the 8th. instant, with the paper returned, was safely received. It may not be amiss for me to say, that the opinions expressed in the letter, that Constitutional provisions, necessary and proper to defeat resistance to the laws, ought not to be opposed, had no specific reference to the Bill depending, but was a general remark that whatever Constitutional provisions might be...
