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...
I recd. by the last mail your welcome favor of the 10th. instant. The newspapers had prepared me for the triumphant vote which restores a prodigal sister to the bosom of the republican family, and evinces a return of her grateful feelings for a revolutionary worthy. I congratulate you very sincerely on this event, with every wish that your administration may be as happy to yourself as I am...
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...
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 cannot take my final leave of Washington, without calling to mind the epistolary debt remaining due to you. On consulting with Mr. Monroe some time ago, it was understood that your stay in Holland would be prolonged untill next fall, if not next Spring, by a joint negociation with the Govt. of the Netherlands, on the subject of a commercial Treaty. You will have received the communications...
I duly recd. your two favors of Aug. 10. & Decr. 9th. 1815. but during so busy a season, that I have been obliged to postpone the acknowlegement of them, to the present date. The picture you give of the Dutch humiliation as exemplified in the tone of the Baron de Nagel, on the violation of the local sovereignty in the case of the seaman impressed, exceeds what I could have inferred from the...
I am just favored with yours of the 19h. Ulto. I need not say that I should have been particularly happy in seeing you before your departure for Europe, if circumstances had permitted. Having retired for a while to my farm, I am disappointed of the pleasure of even a substituted interview with Mr. Everett. The Secretary of State however whom I left at Washington, will have an opportunity, of...
¶ To William Eustis. Letter not found. 21 December 1814. Acknowledged in Eustis to JM , 29 Dec. 1814 , as informing Eustis of his appointment as U.S. minister to the Netherlands and enclosing his commission.
It has been in view for some time to counterplace Mr. Changuion by an Envoy Extraordinary & Minister Plenipotentiary to his Sovereign Prince; and I have had you in my thoughts for the service. I postponed however consulting you on the subject, on the calculation that it could be done at any time without inconvenient delay to the object. Circumstances now exist which render an immediate...
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...
