¶ To William C. C. Claiborne. Letter not found. 1 October 1815. Acknowledged in Claiborne to JM , 8 Dec. 1815 ( DLC ), which indicates that JM conveyed José Correa da Serra’s request for “Some perfect fruits of Bow wood from Louisiana, and some perfect seeds of the same” (see Corrèa da Serra to JM , ca. August 1815).
I have reecived [ sic ] your favor of the 2 Ulto. and very sincerely congratulate you on the high proof given you of the Confidence & affection of your fellow Citizens of Louisiana. The event is important in several political views, as well as gratifying to your personal friends. To myself it is a source of unfeigned pleasure. I say nothing on public affairs: because I could say nothing which...
The honble mr Dawson , a member of Congress , proposes to become an inhabitant of the state of Louisiana . I think he must formerly have been personally known to you: but lest I should be mistaken in this, I take the liberty of making him the subject of this letter. he is a gentleman of liberal education, regularly brought up to the law, was very early in life placed in the council of state of...
You will probably some time ago have seen in the newspapers that the suit of Edward Livingston against me for maintaining the public possession of the Batture of New Orleans has been dismissed by the District court of the US. at Richmond for want of jurisdiction. my wish was that it should have been tried on it’s merits, that the public might have seen thro’ that medium that the transaction...
I have duly recieved your favor of the 10 th . those of Aug. 11. 13. & 25. would have been sooner acknoleged also, but that your motions did not permit me to know whither to address a letter. I have to thank you for the various pieces furnished, and your many attentions to aid me in this suit. I have lately been much advised to rest the question on the plea that what I did was done by me as...
I have not been able till this day to collect sufficient information from the French & Spanish authorities, concerning the powers vested in the Governors for the Kings either of France or Spain , to prevent encroachments on the demesne of the crown, & public property in general. I flatter myself however that the following quotations will fully elucidate this point of law. 1 o See Vattel , the...
I had heard of your arrival in the Atlantic states some time since, and yesterday recieved your favor from N. Orleans of May 4. announcing your intended voyage, and that I should have the pleasure of seeing you at Monticello . this would at all times be highly welcome to me, but during this season will be peculiarly so, on account of the proceedings which are the subject of your letter. I have...
Your letters of Jan. 10. 12. & Feb. 1. came to hand only a fortnight ago. the inclosed contains my answer to the latter, for communication to the Legislature . so many false views on the subject of the Batture have been presented in & out of Congress that duty to myself, as well as justice to the citizens of N. Orleans & of the Western country generally required that I should avail myself of...
Your favor of Feb. 1. but lately came to my hands. it brings me new proofs, in the resolutions it inclosed, of the indulgence with which the legislature of Orleans has been pleased to view my conduct in the various duties assigned to me by our common country. the times in which we have lived have called for all the services which any of it’s citizens could render, and if mine have met...
Your favor of May 17. came to hand the last day of June. it covered a Tragedy in Manuscript from Col o Siblong commemorative of a scene which had past on the Missisipi within the memory of persons still living. I am too old to catch the enthusiasm of poetry, and therefore unqualified to judge of it’s merits other than that of the sentiment. in this respect the piece in question merits much...
