I have not for a long time been so much mortified as on calling at your lodgings to-day, for the third time, to be told you had left town. The first and second time of my calling, you were gone out, as I unfortunately happened to be when you were so good as to call on me. The constant confinement to which my office holds me prevented my repeating my early efforts to have the pleasure of seeing...
I have to acknolege the receipt of your favor of Oct. 8 together with the seeds of the Sugar maple accompanying it. I have delivered a part to the President and will deliver another portion to Mr. Madison who is just arrived here. In the name of us all accept thanks for this present, which I deem valuable. I was not fortunate in my essay of the last year. Of 80. trees I bought in N. York, very...
Before you receive this, mine of the 18. inst. will have reached your hands, in answer to yours of Feb. 26. The purpose of the present is to acknolege the receipt of yours of the 12th. inst. with the Canada papers, and to thank you for them as for others received on former occasions. I have not been able to take any measures for the regular transmission of these papers to my office, as I have...
I received yesterday your favor of the 12th. and shall be very thankful if you can have the Quebec papers brought to me regularly, to which I would wish to have added those of Montreal, now that they are to be in separate governments. Newspapers shew the temper of a country, and it will always be proper for us to have an eye on that of Canada. I am in hopes the printer or postmaster at...
Your favor of Feb. 21. has been too long unacknoleged. the press of business on a first entrance into office must apologize for me. it contains much to thank you for. while the esteem of my friends is dear to my heart, I see that their expectations are painfully too high; and especially in a scene of such vast extent, where we must of necessity depend on information not inspection. the...
I received your kind favor of the 26th. Ult. and thank you for it’s contents as sincerely as if I could engage in what they propose. When I first entered on the stage of public life (now 24. years ago) I came to a resolution never to engage while in public office in any kind of enterprize for the improvement of my fortune, nor to wear any other character than that of a farmer. I have never...
I am to acknolege the receipt of your favor of the 9th. inst. and to thank you for your attention to my request of the Maple seed. Every thing seems to tend towards drawing the value of that tree into public notice. The rise in the price of West India sugars, short crops, new embarrasments which may arise in the way of our getting them, will oblige us to try to do without them. The Bennington...
Your favor of the 7th instant came duly to hand, but a pressure of business, has retarded the acknowledgment of it. My lands on the Ohio & great Kanhawa Rivers are not yet disposed of nor do I incline to offer them for sale in Europe; where land jobbing is in much disgrace. For some part of them (possessed of no peculiar advantages) I have refused eight dollars an acre, but have offered the...
