I learn with great concern the difficulties of your situation, and with the more as it is entirely out of my power to aid you, my own situation being precisely yours. I have informed Mr. Grand of the reason we have to expect some remittances daily, and considerable ones ere long. But he is decided to await their arrival before he increases his advances. With respect to the monies in Holland, I...
You will perceive by the inclosed letter that it is the wish of Mr. Barclay that the books and papers of the Consular office be removed to this place, and deposited with me till further orders. The Commissioners of the Treasury have signified to me their concurrence in this measure. I should not chuse to receive them otherwise than in one or more trunks, sealed: as I do not purpose to open...
I recieved last night your letter of May 14. which was the first intimation I had recieved of any demand for the fire insurance company, altho’ I am now told it has been published lately in some of the Richmond papers. the date of the reciept renders a literal compliance with the requisition of 89. D 80 C to be paid in Richmond on the 1st. of August impracticable nor [can] I do it earlier than...
I have duly received your favor of the 1st. instant , and in answer can only observe that I am not authorized to settle your account, to decide on the balance due to you nor to order paiment in consequence. Mr. Barclay desired me to pay you specific sums, which you will see detailed on the back of the inclosed order which is for two thousand nine hundred and fifty three livres. I state them on...
I am honoured with your favor of the 3d. inst. and am sorry to be obliged to inform you that no late remittances having arrived from the board of treasury of the U.S. and Mr. Grand being unwilling to extend his advances beyond their present amount, Mr. Barclay’s bills in your favor must lie awhile unpaid. I have reason to expect that remittances would be on the way before they receive my...
In your favor of Oct. 31 . you refer to a letter of July I never received, and you mention nothing of mine of June 19. wherein I inclosed you an order on Messieurs Willinck & Van Staphorsts for two thousand nine hundred and fifty three livres. I will beg the favor of you to inform me whether you received that letter. I am happy in hearing you are established [at] Lorient, and shall be more so...
I think with you that it will be best for you to finish the public accounts of the United States as you propose in your letter of Feb. 18 . before you pack them in trunks. I will only beg of you to finish them as expeditiously as you can. As soon as this is done, we will settle the whole balance which may be due to you from the United states and I will exert myself to have it paid you. I have...
Your favor of the 6th. inst. conveys to me the first information of your establishment in this country, in which I wish you every success. With respect to the application you propose to Congress on the subject of insurances , I am not able to say what may be it’s effect. We are little habituated to these speculations here, and therefore the less likely to estimate their true value. Instead...
According to your desire I will now state to you the reasons which have induced me to decline engaging finally in the mutual insurance against fire. when I had the pleasure of meeting you at Dumfries in Jany. 1798. you were so good as to sit with me the evening & to go into considerable details on the subject of your plan of insurance . the calculations were of some length & difficulty, I was...
