I have recd. yours of the 24th. The conduct of the B. Govt. in protesting the arrangement of its Minister surprizes one in spite of all their examples of folly. If it be not their plan, now that they have filled their magazines with our supplies, and ascertained our want of firmness in witholding them, to adopt openly a system of monopoly & piracy, it may be hoped that they will not persist in...
Since my last I have recd. yours of the 26th. If the sketch of Erskine’s instructions be faithful, ⟨it⟨ shews as clearly that Canning was determined to prevent an adjustment, as that Erskine was, to effect it. The proof is the stronger of C.s insidiousness, as he must have known from the answer of Mr. Pinkney to the expedient which wd. substitute the capture of our trade under our laws for...
I have recd your favor of the acquainting me with your proposed trip to N. York. I had entered into the same train of ideas with yours as to the probable state of Jackson’s situation and wishes.

I do not know whether the request of M. Moussier , explained in the inclosed letter , is grantable or not. but my partialities in favor of whatever may promote either the useful or liberal arts, induce me to place it under your consideration, to do in it whatever is right, neither more nor less. I would then ask you to favor me with three lines in such form as I may forward him by way of...
Not knowing whether the inclosed infor letter may give you information either new or useful, I hazard it on the bare possibility that it may. the writer both as to candor & understanding is worthy of entire credit. he is the son of a wheat-fan maker in my neighborhood, & living in the hollow of a mountain unknown to every body & with only a common education, he by some means got a copy of...
A letter from Govr. Tyler answering an enquiry as to the $300 deposited in my hands to pay for the Sword purchased by Chan: Livingston, informs me, that the money was returned to Virga. & lies ready to be applied to its object. That item of course in Mr. L.’s accts. may be struck out, and the charge pd. by a remittance from Va. I do not recollect the cost of the Sword; but if more than $300,...
The sea-letter, as its name & its address, import are meant to verify the ship on the High seas. As Belligerents alone have a right to such a verification, is not the Document unnecessary when there is no belligerent. If the verifying papers, intended for the Jurisdiction at the port of destination be not at present suitable or sufficient, should not some other more appropriate than the sea...
In the action brought against me by E. Livingston on the subject of the Batture , the counsel employed desire me, without delay, to furnish them with the grounds of defence, that they may know what pleas to put in. a free communication of the papers relating to it in the public offices is necessary to aid me. I do not know whether there are any, & what papers, in your office which may be...
