I have but a moment to inclose you the letters from Govr: Scott & others. You will communicate to Mr. Monroe what has been done in that quarter. His presence will be useful in getting every thing into system & subordination. A failure in the mail does not allow me time to examine the Volunteer Act, with reference to a Majr. Genl’s Comission to Mr. Monroe. But I see no evil from risking the...
I have recd. yours of the 11th. inclosing a letter from Mr. Jones acting as Judge Advocate at Frederick Town. As the case of Genl. Wilkinson is in possession of the Court Martial, who will judge of the extent of their own jurisdiction, as well as decide on the merits of the questions within it, no instructions seem to be requisite, in the present stage of the proceeding; unless it be in...
Letter not found. 16 August 1810. Acknowledged in Eustis to JM, 26 Aug. 1810 . Inquires about the authorship of a disrespectful note and forwards a letter from George Colbert.
Your favor of the 27 Ult: from Richmond was duly handed to me by Genl King. His stay with me was very short, having failed to reach this on the day he left Monticello, and being in a hurry to get to Washington by a particular time. I find by Mrs. Eustis’s letter to Mrs. M. that you had taken up your winter quarters in Wmsbg. Why did you not take a Western instead of an Eastern direction from...
I have duly recd. your letter of the 6th. inst: in which your pen has done justice to the elevated devotion to the public interest which it had to express. I had previously recd. under your blank cover, a printed copy of your Address to the Legislature. The coup de grace which the address gives to the factious ascendency so long forming a cloud over the State of Massachts. could not fail to...
Several considerations appearing to render it expedient that the Commander in Chief, now with the Army in the Territory of Orleans, should be at the Seat of Government, as soon as the prerequisites to his setting out, will permit, you will please to transmit him instructions to that effect. Should the correspondence between the Navy Dept. and Capt: Porter, not have been otherwise communicated...
I have delayed to thank you for your favors from Williamsburg & N York, till I should learn that a letter would find you at Boston. This I have just done. I am glad that your interview with Dr. Mason has authenticated a circumstance, which tho’ of a minute character, it is well eno’ should not be left in uncertainty. And I am very glad that you sought the conversation with Van Wert. The...
I have thought it proper to request the return of the inclosed letters; some of which, though stating facts, & shewing the public sentiment, and on that account worth perusing, contain what ought to consign them to the fire, rather than to the public archives. The more I hear of the alarm produced in the Western Country by Hull’s disaster, and of the incoherent efforts on foot to cure the...
If this should find you in Boston, will you be so good as to make the proper payment for me, to the Editor of the Patriot, who has sent me his paper hitherto, and which I wish to be continued. Mr. Jackson, it seems does not think proper to open himself, untill he shall have presented his credentials & been formally recd. nor does he show any solicitude to hasten this preliminary. Presuming...
We have just recd an Envoy from the new Sovereign of the U. Netherlands, & wish to cultivate useful relations between the 2 Countries, by a prompt return of the Civility. Will you permit me to name you to the Senate, for the purpose of counterplacing him? It will be very convenient to receive an early answer, & if my wishes should be gratified, that you be ready for an early departure for your...
