If you will be so good as to make particular & diligent enquiry as to the riotous workmen, and to designate those who were active and insolent on the late occasion, & therefore most proper to be excluded from the public yards, I shall be willing that the residue be recieved again. it will be necessary that you report the list to me that I may communicate it to the other public works. friendly...
I have this day made a tolerably exact estimate of the digging already done at the President’s house, & that which remains to be done, for the lead drains from each end of the house, and the main sewer. there is done 1000. cub. yards. digging at 18 C = 180.D carrying away @ C = D
I inclose you a postnote on the bank of the US. at Philadelphia drawn by the branch bank here, in discharge of a bill for instruments to that amount furnished to Isaac Briggs partly for him & partly for myself. Accept my salutations. MoSHi : Bixby Collection.
All is well here, as I hope with you also, & I have not time to say more except that the question decisive of the bill repealing the late judiciary law in the H. of R. will not be taken till tomorrow or next day. my love to my dear Martha & the young ones. RC ( DLC ); address clipped: “Thomas Mann R[andolph] at […]”; franked and postmarked; endorsed by Randolph.
Your favor of the 23d. is at hand, and I will thank you to send the lamps (half a dozen) bespoke by mr Claxton which you have imported, with the note of their cost. vessels are constantly coming from Philadelphia to this place, or to Alexandria, which will bring them safely. with respect to the Mantle piece fountain lamps, perhaps you could give me some idea of their forms by a sketch which...
I have but a single moment to announce to you the death of Trist at N. Orleans. one letter brought us news of his extreme illness, and another, by the same post, of his death. the situation of his family is to be deplored indeed; and I am afraid they will expect what the public mind will not admit. God bless you all. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Th: Jefferson presents his salutations to mr Munroe, and is of opinion there can be no doubt of Majr. L’Enfant’s title to interest. it was validly engaged by the commissioners, and their offer has been approved by the legislature. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
Th: Jefferson presents his Compliments to Capt Truxton and his thanks for the pamphlet of mr Hoppe on the improved Sextant, which his late return to the seat of government and immersion into other business waiting for him, has not permitted him yet to look into. having recieved half a dozen copies from the author, and supposing from mr Hoppe’s letter to Capt Truxton that a single copy only...
I recieved last night your favor of the 12th. I can say with truth that I do not remember ever to have recieved such a paper as is the subject of your letter. I might ascertain this by a recurrence to my files; but it is unnecessary for another reason. it is so important to the public service that I should be the center of information as to whatever concerns them, that in order to induce it to...
It being perfectly understood that the appropriation of Mar. 3. 1803. for ‘keeping in repair the highway between the capitol & other public buildings’ had in view only ordinary & light repairs in the stile which then existed, it would be contrary to that view to make it the foundation of expending on them such a sum as 5. or 6000.D. altho’ it is very possible that this would be cheapest in the...
