Th: Jefferson presents his friendly salutations to mr Brown. he recieved a letter and some nuts from the lady to whom the inclosed is an answer. being entirely unacquainted with her as far as he recollects, he incloses it open to mr Brown with a request that he will be so good as to seal & have it delivered if no circumstance unknown to Th: Jefferson would render it improper; or better in the...
The inclosed letter of thanks from the Philosophical society has been sent me to forward to you. We have been unfortunately delayed in our Hospital establishment at New Orleans by different accidents: and I just now learn that mr Daniel Clarke , who is to be the Superintendent, is lately returned from New Orleans to Philadelphia; in which case he will have left the place just before our...
I have just received the enclosed letter returned to me from Richd. to which I had directed it, taking for granted it would either find Mr. Butler there, where his letter to me was dated, or follow him, according to an arrangement for the purpose. I am very sorry for the occurrence as my supposed silence might be misconstrued. I enclose also a copy of the letter, that you may know its...
Mr. Dufour called on me yesterday, with the wine. his object seems to be to get my own opinion & that of others on it’s merit, in order to decide on the expediency of continuing the pursuit. but it should be observed that no wine on earth was ever drinkable the spring after it was made. country people may indeed drink it, as ours drink new cyder from the press. but I mean that no judgment can...
I find by the act of your late Convention, that another is to take place in Nov. with power to propose a form of Government for Kentucky. In consequence of this information I shall forewith execute the request contained in your letter from Fort Pitt, and forward the remarks on Mr. Jefferson’s draft by the next mail. I am sorry it is not in my power to do it by this. The delay proceeded from...
I take the liberty of putting the inclosed under your cover because it is suggested that Dr. Brown may be gone to New Orleans. and I leave the letter to him open for your perusal, praying you to do with respect to the letter or the object of it whatever the existing circumstances, which are not known to me may render most expedient. if in his absence you can give me any information which would...
The returns of our elections as far as they are published, have raised somewhat the hopes of the friends to the Constitution. Those who are best informed think the adverse party will be outnumbered at the start. It seems pretty clear now that in point of characters the advantage will be on the federal side. The three chancellors are elected and are to be included in the description. So are...
I am much obliged by your favor of the 12th. instant and particularly by the documents covered by it. Similar information to that you recite from Kentucky had reached us from the same quarter. Having not heard of the meeting for instructions being actually held, I indulge some hopes that it may not have taken place, and that the delegates will bring to the Convention no other fetters than...
On recieving from you mr Walker’s bill of prices (which I now inclose) I examined your account, which I had not done before, and soon found that mr Walker’s bill related only to grist mills. I therefore sent a messenger to him and asked him to state the prices of saw mill work, which he did. on comparing these with yours I found them very materially different. my original agreement for...
Although the deed of bargain and sale from Muse, dated in 1774, conveys all the right he had to lands in the patent for 7276 acres—yet as there must have been some inducement to take the subsequent deeds in 1784 I am inclined, though unable to account for them, to have them fully recorded—especially as the quantity of land thereby conveyed differs pretty considerably⟨.⟩ I am Sir, your most...
