I pray you to accept my grateful acknowledgements for the honor conferd on me in appointing me chief Justice of the United States. This additional and flattering mark of your good opinion has made an impression on my mind which time will not efface. I shall enter immediately on the duties of the office & hope never to give you occasion to regret having made this appointment With the most...
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...
I inclose you the last letter from Mr. Adams our Minister at Berlin. The subject on which it treats is a very interesting one. At the same time I receivd from him another letter of an earlier date in which was transmited a certificate of the exchange of the ratifications of our treaty with Prussia. I send you by this days mail a letter prepard to Mr. King. If you conceive that no such letter...
I have been requested to make to you the application of Mr. DAmbrugeac to provide for him a passage to France. He says that he has not been furnishd with money by Genl. Toussaint for that object.

I do not pretend to express any opinion on the subject but think...
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 send you the copy of a letter transmitted to this department by the Chevallier de Yrujo. Your letter of the 31st. of July, inclosing one addressed to yourself personally, by the minister of his Catholic Majesty, was received on the 9th inst., & I have, in conformity with your wish, consulted with the Secretary of war on the means proper to be usd on the occasion.

I have just receiv’d your letter of the 25th of July inclosing the recommendations of several gentlemen for the vacant office of Marshal for this district. I am sensible of the confidence you place in me, when you authorize me to fill the commission with the name of such person, as on the best information I can collect, shall appear most proper; & I shoud not have hesitated to insert the name...
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...
Inclosd is the answer of the secretary of the Senate to a request that he woud furnish the department of state with the names of the Senators. There being no official certainty of the Senators newly elected to serve after the 3d. of March may produce some doubt respecting the propriety of a summons addressd to them individually. There is not to be found on the files of this department any copy...
I have just receivd your letter of the 22d. and am happy that the proceedings with the Spanish Minister have your approbation.

I transmit you also a letter from a Mr. Mitchell of Charleston in South Carolina and a letter I have...
