I thank you for the pamphlet you were so kind as to send me by mr Harris, which I have read with great satisfaction. the views of government which it presents are sound, and well worthy the consideration of those who conduct it. but governments never improve otherwise than by revolution. While I acknolege I am far, very far, from being able to write answers of acknowledgement for the many...
Your letter of the 21 st found me in a commencement of convalescence after a severe illness of some weeks. I have given however to the pamphlet which accompanied it the best attention which my condition has permitted. the facts it has collected are valuable, encouraging to the American mind, and so far as they respect ourselves could give umbrage to none. but if a contrast with other nations...
J. Madison has recd. the polite invitation of the "Penn Society" to their anniversary dinner on the 25th. inst: Being under the necessity of denying himself, the pleasure of accepting it, he complies with the requested alternative by offering as a toast--"The immortal memory of Penn who subdued the ferocity of Savages by his virtues & enlightened the Civilized world by his Institutions" FC (DLC) .
I have recd your favour inclosing a copy of your "View of the Committee powers of Congress." Without entering into questions which may grow out of the twofold character of the Senate of the U. S. as a Legislative, and Judicial Body, your observations suggest a fuller investigation and more accurate definition of the privileges and authorities, of the several Departments & Branches of our...
I have duly recd. your favor of the 9th. with the printed communication inclosed. I am very sensible of my obligations for the kind feelings which dictated both; and not less so, that in weighing my public services, the friendly hand unconsciously favored that end of the beam The attempts of party zeal when pursuing its favorite object, to break into the domain of the Constitution, can not be...
On my return, the day before yesterday, after a long absence from this place, I found here your favor of July 4. with the two Chinese works from mr Wilcox which accompanied it. I pray you to accept my thanks for the trouble you have taken in forwarding them, and, if you are in correspondence with mr Wilcox , & should have other occasion to write to him, I must request you to express to him my...
J. Madison presents his respects to Mr Ingersoll with many thanks for the Copy of his Address on the 4th of July. It is a proof that fertility of genius can create an interest in a case which in other hands would be barren from apparent exhaustion. J. M. is sensible of the delay in making the proper return to Mr I for his favor. He has an apology which he is sure will be kindly accepted in his...
Mr. M. being at present too much indisposed to use his own pen desires me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th. instant, and to thank you for your friendly solicitude on the subject of his health. I am sorry to say that the change in it since you left Montpellier has not been favorable. You need not be assured of the pleasure he always feels in the society of his friends...
I thank you, tho’ at a late day, for the pamphlet comprizing your address at New-York. The address is distinguished by some very interesting views of an important subject. The Absolutists on the "Let alone Theory" overlook the two essential prerequisites to a perfect freedom of external Commerce, 1. that it be universal among nations. 2. that peace be perpetual among them. A perfect freedom of...
confidential I have received my dear Sir your favor of with a copy of the address of the late Convention at New York. I have looked enough over it to be satisfied that able pens were employed both on the Constitutionality of the tariff, and on its relations to political economy. On the latter question I am disabled by a distressing Rheumatism working on an aged frame from such an examination...
