I have recd. yours without date but postmarked Ocr. 27. I thank you for your kindness in dispensing with answers to your favors. Occupations & attentions belonging to my situation will probably oblige me to avail myself much of this privilege. I am very sensible also of your great kindness in what you say of a malignant attack on me. Why I should be made a target for poisoned arrows now, I can...
I have recd your favor inclosing the printed extracts from the pamphlet of Cunningham, and have made the communication of it where you intended. It is impossible not to feel indignation at the outrage committed by the publication on private confidence. From the specimens given of its contents it will nevertheless have much effect in inflaming animosities in certain quarters, & probably in...
Mr. Jefferson has just returned me your two letters & the papers accompanying them. Supposing that I had yet to acknowledge them he annexes a line requesting me to do it for him also: observing that it would hurt him much to leave unnoticed an old friend, and that the difficulty of using his pen with his crippled hand, had compelled him to abandon writing, but from the most urgent necessities....
Since I recd. your two letters of I have hitherto been prevented from acknowledging them first by some very urgent calls on my time, and afterwards by an indisposition which has just left me. I have forwarded the letters with the printed papers to Mr. Jefferson. I know well the respect he as well as myself attaches to your communications. But I have grounds to believe that, with me also, he...
I recd. a few days ago your favor of the 8th. inclosing a paper signed Phocion. Your own papers inclosed in your two preceding letters have been forwarded according to your suggestion. I have looked over the paper of Phocion. It indicates intelligence and acuteness in the writer, and no inconsiderable fairness, in facing, at every point, the subject he discusses. In his charges against me of...
I have recd. your letter of the 12th. and written one to the President, which will remind him of your successive services to your Country, and convey my sense of their merit and value. Being in no correspondence with any of the present members of the Senate, I feel myself less at liberty to do the same with them; especially as there may be some delicacy in anticipating a nomination from the...
Your favor of Aug. 4. was handed to me by mr Skinner whom I recieved with great pleasure, as well on account of his merit, as of your recommendation. I valued it the more as it has furnished me an occasion to renew recollections of our antient friendship, and to assure you that time has neither weaned nor weakened it with me. we were fellow laborers indeed in times not to be forgotten. a...
On the receipt of yours of the 7th. I dropped a few lines to the President on the subject of your son. I did it however rather in compliance with your desire, than from a doubt that his own dispositions would be as favorable as circumstances will permit. I sincerely wish that nothing in those may oppose the object you have so much as so justly at heart. I am glad to find you still sparing...
I have recd. your favor of the 2d. inst. with the printed addition to your Memoir relating to Cotton. This further view of the subject, gives peculiar force to your former observations, and I wish it may attract all the attention which is due from our public Councils. Without a just estimate of her manufacturing & commercial interests as I should understand them, G. B. seems intent on...
