I have received your favour of the 10th: of this month with your oration on our anniversary Festival: which, though I received and read it first in a Newspaper, gave me a higher pleasure, by a second perusal, on receiving it in a Pamphlet from its Author. it is if I may be permitted to express an opinion of it, in a strain of Philosophical Reflection, no less they than in a style of Elegance...
Philosophy and Theology being my principal Studies I am ill qualified to correspond with you upon Politicks. I have lately fumbled here and there in 7 Volumes in 8vo. entitled the Light of Nature pursued by One Search. He says there is a Family of that name. I believe him and perceive that you are of that Blood; and as I claim a remote relation, I hope you will not be offended, if hereafter I...
I have recd your letter of the 26. Ult: referring to a pamphlet previously sent me; and for which now that I know to whom I am indebted, I return my thanks. Having recd. the pamphlet at a moment, which permitted a very hasty perusal only, my judgment of it ought to have the less value even with those most partial to it. I am able to say, however, without compliment, that the perusal of the...
I have recd. your favor of the 18th. instant, & delivered into the hands of Mr. Rush the interesting extract inclosed in it. The armed neutrality in 1780, forms an Epoch in the history of maritime law which makes it more than a point of mere curiosity, to trance it to its real source. You know perhaps that there is an American pretension to a share at least in bringing about that measure. The...
I thank you for your attentive favor of the 16th. which gave me the first intelligence of the death of Mr. Dallas. The melancholy event was received here with unfeigned grief, and by none more deeply, as you will readily conceive, than by myself. Our Country will rarely lose a Citizen, whose virtues endowments and services will leave a stronger claim to its admiring and grateful recollections,...
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...
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 letter of Jany. 21 asking 1. Is there any State power to make Banks? 2. Is the Federal power as it has been exercized, or as proposed to be exercised by President Jackson, preferable? The evil which produced the prohibitory clause in the Constitution of the U.S. was the practice of the States in making Bills of credit, and in some instances appraized property, "a legal...
I have received your friendly letter of the 18th. inst. The few lines which answered your former one of the 21st Jany last, were written in haste & in bad health: but they expressed, though without the attention in some respects due to the occasion, a dissent from the views of the President, as to a Bank of the U. S. and a substitute for it; to which I cannot but adhere. The objections to the...
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...
