I have considered the letter from the Collector of Newport inclosed in yours which I received yesterday, and the questions which he states as arising upon the proviso to the 66§. of the Collection Act passed on the 4th August, 1790, and I am of opinion. That a capias or attachment issued within three years after the penalty of forfeiture was incurred, and returned by the proper officer, is a...
[ Philadelphia, September 27, 1794. The description of this letter in the dealer’s catalogue reads: “Concerning expenses of ‘The Commissioners appointed by the President of the United States.’ Bradford … had apparently advanced the money needed to buy horses, etc., and he inquires if the sums advanced were to be repaid him by the Quartermaster or charged in his account against the U.S.” Letter...
I have the honor of acknowledging the receipt of your letters of the 5th instant and have considered the question therein stated for my opinion. It is, at what time does the credit upon the duties imposed on a cargo first entered for exportation and afterwards for landing, begin to run. Although this case does not appear to have been distinctly foreseen or provided for in any of the Impost...
The record of the proceedings in the cause relating to the Carriage Tax is not yet returned —but I expect it this week. I learn however that Taylor, who has published his speech, has advised the defendant to make no further argument & to let the Supreme Court do as they please & that in consequence of this advice no counsel will appear in support of the writ of Error. I have denied that the...
I have attentively considered the question which you have stated for my consideration & I am clearly of opinion “that the stock of the United States standing in the names of individuals on the books of the Treasury are not liable to attachment by the Laws of Pennsylvania.” Independent of the strong considerations which arise from the nature of the debt and the manner in which transfers are...
Yesterday I wrote to you pretty fully —to day I have little to add beyond what is contained in the official communication. Whatever may be the declarations of a determination to submit, or exertions on the part of those whose indemnity depends upon a general acquiescence in the execution of the acts of Congress—there seems to be a necessity for some force being stationed here, to overawe the...
I thank you very sincerely for your letter of the 10th. inst. which I received a few days ago. The conduct of Fauchet which you so justly reprobate could not escape the notice of the president tho’ it does not seem to have excited so much public attention as I expected. A little before this took place, that minister had intimated to Mr Randolph his expectation of returning soon to France; and...
The case of Mr. Green upon which you request my opinion appears to be, in substance, as follows. Mr Green being a subject of his britannic Majesty, emigrated to America after the treaty of peace in 1783, and by his residence & taking the requisite oaths became a citizen of the United States. He afterwards entered into a contract with certain British Merchants established at Ostend: and on a...
In conformity to your request I have perused the records annexed to the Writs of error sued out in the case of Jeremiah Olney plntf in Error against Edward Dexter and Welcome Arnold. The pleadings do not state with clearness the fact which you consider as the material one in the cause to Wit, that the assignment of the Cargo was pretended & Collusive . In such case, Welcome Arnold would have...
From your Letter of the 25th ultimo which I had the honor of receiving yesterday, I learn that “among the French Officers who served in the United States and who obtained Certificates for the sums due to them there are several who are in the condition of Emigrants and whose whole property has been confiscated by the actual gov: of that Country” upon which a question is made, whether this...
Your letter of last month should not have remained so long unanswered had I not been suddenly carried off to Easton by the allurement of a stout fee, and detained on my return, by the funeral of Secr Stockton, till the day before yesterday. I took care, however, before my departure, to bring the situation of La Fayette into the President’s view and submitted to him the propriety of the step...
