The inclosed was by mistake at the post office put into my packet of letters recieved last night from the post office, and was broke open without particular examination of the superscription. in the moment of opening it, seeing your name on a paper inclosed in it, I looked to the superscription and instantly closed the letter without having read one single word in it. the truth of this...
Your first letter, in a style too peremptory, made a demand, in my opinion, unprecedented and unwarrantable. My answer, pointing out the embarrassment, gave you an opportunity to take a less exceptionable course. You have not chosen to do it, but by your last letter, received this day, containing expressions indecorous and improper, you have increased the difficulties to explanation,...
I have maturely reflected on the subject of your letter of the 18th instant; and the more I have reflected the more I have become convinced, that I could not, without manifest impropriety, make the avowal or disavowal which you seem to think necessary. The clause pointed out by Mr. Van Ness is in these terms “I could detail to you a still more despicable opinion , which General Hamilton has...
The voyage referred to by Mr. Vanderkemp was undertaken and conducted by individuals, in whose hands the journal and other papers, which he desires to peruse, must remain. Mr. Barrill of Boston had a concern in the voyage and may be therefore resorted to in order to trace their place of Deposit. With very high respect, I have the honor to remain, Dr Sir your most obed. servt. RC (owned by...
Th: Jefferson presents his respects to the Vicepresident and is sorry that an error of his Secretary mentioning Thursday the 17th. instead of Tuesday the 17th. in his note of invitation should have occasioned a miscomprehension of the day. mr Harvie wrote a note correcting his error, to the V. President; but lest it should not have been delivered Th:J. asks leave to expect the pleasure of his...
Mr. Madison presents his respectful compliments to the Vice President. There was about two years ago a Consul at St. Jago, since which nothing has been heard from him; such characters not being tolerated by the Spanish Govrs. in times of peace. He was also involved in such a manner with the local authorities as to render it questionable how far he could be prudently used for the purpose...

Madison presents his respects to the vice-president, who will find in the enclosed the information afforded by the office of state on the subject of former amendments to the Constitution. Mr. Beckley recollects, that in one of the instances, copies equal to the number of the states were made out in the clerk’s office of the House of Representatives....
I distinctly recollect (as was once before verbally explained between us) that just before you made a payment of Two thousand Dollars on your Bond, Winships Mortgage was returned to you, as the mean by which the money was to be procured. I think it was sent to you by Le Guen himself. It is to be presumed, that Winship has had since some intimation from the possessor of his mortgage, and that...
I am honoured with your two letters of the 10th. insts with their respective enclosures—which shall be carefully forwarded as addressed—enclosed I send you a few Letters passing between me and Colo. Troup on the subject of Cheethams publication against me, and which Mr. Troup, is said to have been originally acquainted with, did correct it or was the author of it, certainly has declared the...
Your Protegé Buisson has addressed to me the inclosed letter. Why he did not immediately write to you I cannot tell unless it be that he is conscious he has used your politeness sufficiently, and imagines an intermediary to be hereafter necessary. Perhaps you may be able to decipher his wishes from the letter; which I confess is beyond my skill. But I understand from him in conversation that...
Th: Jefferson with his salutations to the Vice President returns him the letter he put into his hands for perusal. the Secretary at war had a high opinion of mr Barron: but on the informations he has recieved, that opinion is suspended. the matter being sub judice no more ought to be said, than that no prejudices will be in the way of justice. RC ( CtY ); addressed: “The Vice President of the...
In my letter of yesterday I forgot to put the inclosed and to ask the favor of you to address it to the proper place. it is in answer to one I received three months ago , dated in Dumfries, but the gentleman was there only as a traveller and did not advise me where to address the answer. I inclosed it to mr Gallatin having heard him speak of the writer. but he returned it to me two months ago,...
Your favor of the 10th . has been recieved, as have been those also of Sep. 4. & 23. in due time. these letters all relating to office, fall within the general rule which even the very first week of my being engaged in the administration obliged me to establish, to wit, that of not answering letters on office specifically, but leaving the answer to be found in what is done or not done on them....
It was to be expected that the enemy would endeavor to sow tares between us, that they might divide us and our friends. every consideration satisfies me you will be on your guard against this, as I assure you I am strongly. I hear of one stratagem so imposing & so base that it is proper I should notice it to you. mr Munford , who is here, says he saw at N. York before he left it, an original...
Although we have not official information of the votes for President & Vice President and cannot have until the first week in Feb. yet the state of the votes is given on such evidence as satisfies both parties that the two Republican candidates stand highest. from S. Carolina we have not even heard of the actual vote; but we have learnt who were appointed electors, and with sufficient...
I communicated to Dr. Currie your idea that the creditors of mr Morris should buy in the mortgage which stands before them. he answers me in these words. ‘I should wish to be informed by you to what amount I should be obliged to advance, if I became a purchaser with others of the mortgaged lands, to secure my whole debt. tho’ I am almost moneyless, if the thing was practicable, & could come...

Your favor of Feb. 3. came to hand two days ago. I am sorry to observe my friend Currie’s claim to be so unpromising, however I shall still hope for something under the wing of your judgment, which you say will be decided Mar. 14. and if that shall fail, that he may come in for his share under the general attachment. I have no conception how Morris’s immense conveyances to his [four] sons &...
I wrote you some time before I left home on the subject of my friend Currie’s affair but lest that letter should not have [come to hand] I trouble you with this merely to enquire in what state his suit against Morris [is]. and I should not have done it but that you had supposed that, if terminated favorably at all, it would be before this time. a line of information will be acceptable. A want...
Dr. Currie, on whose behalf I troubled you last summer, being anxious to learn something of the prospect he may have of recovery from Robert Morris, I take the liberty of asking a line directed to me at this place where I shall still be long enough to recieve it. I should not have troubled you but that you expected early in the summer to be able to judge what could be done. I am aware at the...

In my letter of May 26. I mentioned to you that Dr. Currie had another demand by judgment against John Tayloe Griffin as principal, and Robert Morris garnishee, which should be the subject of a future letter to you. I now inclose you a transcript of the record of the supreme court of this state. It seems by this (I have not examined the record with minute attention) that the court have...

When I had the pleasure of seeing you here, I spoke to you on the case of a friend of mine, Dr. James Currie of Richmond [in Virginia] and asked the favor of you to proceed, in the way then spoken of, [to] recover against Robert Morris , Dr Currie’s demand, the paper establishing which you had recieved. I have just recieved a letter from him wishing this matter to be pressed. I take the...
The newspapers give so minutely what is passing in Congress that nothing of detail can be wanting for your information. Perhaps however some general view of our situation and prospects since you left us may not be unacceptable. At any rate it will give me an opportunity of recalling myself to your memory, and of evidencing my esteem for you. You well know how strong a character of division had...
