Your letter of the 2d. inst. returning the dispatches from our envoys of the 17th. of May, is just receivd. I now perceive that my having omited to accompany those dispatches with a letter requires an apology. After decyphering it, I had been engagd with the heads of departments until it became necessary to forward the package immediately to you, or to lose a mail which I was not inclind to...
I now send you a copy of the letter transmited to Mr. King—I wrote him also privately stating the best opinion here to be that not more than two milion of Dollars coud justly be chargeable to the United States under the treaty I am Sir with the highest respect / Your Obedt. Servt. MHi : Adams Papers.
The papers from Govr. St. Clair have been read by the heads of departments & are now returnd. On receiving your letter respecting the consulate in the island of Madeira I wrote to Mr. Bayard who I found had on a former occasion recommended in very strong terms for a different consulate, a Mr. Leonard, & have receivd an answer from him which I now transmit to you. I transmit with it a...
I receivd last night your letter of the 26th—of August. The more I think on the proposition of giving a gross sum in lieu of the claims of the British creditors on the government of the United States, the more difficulty appears to me to attend the subject. On the one side I am convincd that the sum we shall be under the necessity of giving, if we come to any agreement, must be more...
I receivd a few days past: a letter from the chevallier de Yrujo complaining that the Marshal for the district of New York, says he has no authority to deliver up the vessel capturd by Capt. Talbot in the Puerto Plata. I have taken measures which will I presume occasion the delivery of this vessel, unless, under the idea that the government has no right to interpose, so far as the captors are...
I have receivd your letter respecting Mr. Nortons claim and shall observe your instructions. There appears to be considerable delicacy in engaging in the support of a claim founded on provisions furnishd the British army during our revolution War. I inclose you a letter from Mr. Wilkins to Mr. Harrison & from Mr. Harrison to me recommending a Mr. Hollingsworth as a Judge in the Indiana...
I have just receivd your letter of the 22d. and am happy that the proceedings with the Spanish Minister have your approbation. I inclose you a letter from Mr. Stevens which represents the part of St. Domingo which had adherd to Rigaud as being completely reducd under the dominion of Toussaint. I transmit you also a letter from a Mr. Mitchell of Charleston in South Carolina and a letter I have...
I transmit you some dispatches lately receivd from the Judge of the Kentucky district. I hope the resistance he mentions to the execution of the judgements of the court of the United States exists no longer. I inclose you also two letters from Mr. Yznardi & a copy of one to him from Don Urquijo. I can scarcely believe that our envoys have embarkd for the Hague. Mountflorence I shoud think must...
I receivd this morning your letter of the 18th. returning the complaint of the Swedish chargé d’affaires & immediately wrote to Mr. King such a letter as you say you approve of. I inclose you a letter from the Governor of the Indiana territory respecting the appointment of Judges. The opinion that the laws of the old territory do not operate in the new, whether well or ill founded furnishes a...
When I forwarded the last dispatches from our envoys in Paris I omited unintentionally to transmit with them the decrees which accompanied them & which I now enclose. The state of the negotiation on the 17th. of May, considerd in connection with the subsequent military operations of the Armies, & with the impression which will probably be made by the New York election, gives the appearance of...
