I have received from Mr Curtis your valuable present of American Wine; whether it is made from original American Grapes or from plants imported from abroad is an equal proof that wine can be made in this country. Indeed Grapes are raised in the City of Boston and its neighbouring Towns in such quantities that wine might be made of them here. I have in my own garden a vine, of one of the finest...

New York, August 23, 1799. “… I am not anxious that any part of your force should be stationed at Easton if you think it of importance to keep the whole united. It would however be a strong motive to the stationing of a small party at Easton if the recruiting service could be benefited by the measure. It is not convenient at present to reinforce your detachment, but as I am not apprehensive of...
The Secretary of war mentions to me that he has been informed by several respectable Gentlemen of Baltimore that there is enlisted with Lieut.

I have written to Captains Irvine and Shoemaker directing the first to put himself in readiness to march, and the last to proceed with his company to Pittsburg taking with him the detachment formerly under Lieut Boote but which is now annexed to his command. I have written to these Gentlemen in the first instance because I supposed, from some letter which I have received from you that you...

While I lived in Washington , a member of Congress from your state (I do not recollect which) presented me with two bottles of wine made by you, one of which, of Madeira colour, he said was entirely factitious, the other, a dark red wine was made from a wild or native grape, called in Maryland the Fox grape, but very different from what is called by that name in Virginia . this was a very fine...
While I lived in Washington you were so kind as to send me 2. bottles of wine made by yourself, the one from currans, the other from a native grape , called with you a fox-grape, discovered by mr Penn’s gardiner . the wine of this was as good as the best Burgundy and resembling it. in 1810. you added the great favor of sending me many cuttings. these were committed to the stage Mar. 13. on the...
Your favor of the 5 th has been duly recived, covering my two letters to you of Oct. 7. 1809. and Apr. 20. 1810. which I now return of these be pleased to make whatever use you think proper. but I should think the the first half of the last letter had better be omitted, as it would encumber mr Skinner’s columns with matter entirely useless & uninteresting to his readers. I am very glad to...
Your favors of Feb. 15. & Mar. 13. were recieved in due time, but were not acknoleged because I was daily in expectation of the cuttings which should have accompanied the latter. on the 15 th inst. I recieved yours of the 10 th & concluding the bundle of cuttings had been rejected at some post office as too large to pass thro’ that line, I had yesterday, in despair, written my acknolegements...
I recieved successively the two bottles of wine you were so kind as to send me. the first, called Tokay, is truly a fine wine, of high flavor, and, as you assure me there was not a drop of brandy or other spirit in it, I may say it is a wine of a good body of it’s own. the 2 d bottle, a red wine, I tried when I had good judges at the table. we agreed it was a wine one might always drink with...
I recd some days ago the 2 Copies of your Memoir on the cultivation of the vine, with a bottle of your Tokay; and I have since recd. your letter enforcing the importance of making the Vineyard, an appurtenance to American farms. The Memoir appears to merit well the public attention to which it is offered. It is so long since I tasted the celebrated wine whose name you have adopted, that my...
