I inclose with a few other Newspapers one containing the Decln. of war, which will supply the place of the Natl. Intelligencer, should this miscarry. I inclose also a handbill just recd. giving acct. of the Assassination of Percival. What effect this incident may have on the British Coun[c]ils, can not be anticipated without further knowledge of its causes & circumstances. It may possibly...
The inclosed paper contains the result of what has passed between Mr. Smith & Mr. Erskine. You will see that it puts an end to the two immediate difficulties with G. B. and has the air of a policy in her, to come to a thorough adjustment. It remains to be seen whether the pride or the prudence of France is to prescribe the course which she will take in consequence of this new state of things....
Letter not found. Ca. 5 December 1811. Acknowledged in Jackson to JM, 8 Dec. 1811 . Conveys news that William Henry Harrison and his army have returned safely to Vincennes. Expresses hope that Congress will act decisively.
Your favor of Mar. 30. came safe tho’ rather slowly to hand. It is much to be regretted that in the military appts. any errors shd. be committed, which may damp the spirits of those who feeling most the wrongs of their Country would be most ardent in avenging them. The course adopted was, in a general view, mo⟨st⟩ likely to avoid the errors incident to casual & irresponsible recommendations....
Your favor of the 9th. came to hand a few days ago only; and the usages of the season, with some additional incidents, have not allowed me time for more promptly acknowledging its friendly contents. You were right in supposing that some arrangement of the mass of papers accumulated thro’ a long course of public life would require a tedious attention after my final return to a private Station....
I duly recd. yours inclosing a sample from your long fleeced Ewe. I have seen no ⟨way?⟩ particularly capable of deciding on its merits. I suspect the question of its value depends on the weight of the fleece, finding that wool nearly as long is not very rare in certain breeds, and that the coarseness of its staple brings it under the denomination of Combing wool. A chance only, of turning the...
I have duly recd. your favor of the 29th. ulto. with the printed inclosures. I can not doubt from the statement you give on the subject of the election, that the issue will be satisfactory. I had not before been aware of the extent of the means employed against you. The prev<a>lence of Westerly winds, with external causes imperfectly known continue to suspend the information long looked for...
I have recd. your favor of the 21st. I cannot too much applaud Your zeal & that of your associates, in efforts to retrieve what has been lost by the want of that or something else in others. The present sacrifices you are yourself making call for peculiar acknowledgments. I am constrained at the same time to remark that according to the view taken here, of the prospects before Genl. Harrison,...
Having sent you a part of the papers relating to the rupture between G. B. & Spain, I inclose the sequel so far as it has been yet published in G. Britain. In addition is an Albany paper which does not augur well either for the credit or the cohesion of republicanism in that State. I have a letter from Monroe dated at Madrid Jany. 19. He had had a formal and friendly interview with the Spanish...
The inclosed is an answer to your late letter to Mrs. M. I have only to add to it, that I shall fully share with her in the pleasure of the promised visit from her neice, and that we shall both feel a further gratification in seeing you as her escort. Cannot Mrs. Jackson avail herself of the opportunity of fulfilling her promises also? Health & every other happiness RC ( InU : Jackson...
I should feel my own reproach, in acknowledging at this date yours of Decr. 4. if I did not feel at the same time an apology, which I am sure your friendly candor will admit, in the peculiar pressure of public duties, during the interval. I have not however been unmindful of the object of your letter, and should have even have [ sic ] taken steps towards it, but for my ignorance of the...
As the Intelligencer will not publish the message & documents just laid before Congress, till tomorrow, and not leave this till friday, I send you a copy of the Message. It is justified by the documents, among which are the original , credential & instructions from the Govr. of Canada, and an original letter from Earl of Liverpool to him, approving the conduct of the Secret Agent. This...
Letter not found. 27 November 1801. Acknowledged in Jackson to JM, 19 Dec. 1801 . Encloses a copy of the peace preliminaries between Great Britain and France.
Letter not found. 20 July 1801. Acknowledged in Jackson to JM, 3 Aug. 1801 (ViU). Reports efforts on Jackson’s behalf regarding a postal contract and conveys news of French army in Egypt. Encloses copy of Strickland’s Observations on the Agriculture of the United States .
I have received your letter of Oct: 29 covering the resolutions of the 119 Regiment of the Virginia Militia. The Spirit which these resolutions express, is the more to be approved and relied on, as it is the result of an examination into the foreign aggressions committed against the United States, & into the proceedings of the Government in consequence of them. A conviction of the justice of...
I recd. at the same time your two letters of the 1st. & 5th. It was found that the appt. of a Judge to succeed Mr. Nelson, had taken place a week or two before. Your name had been brought into view under high auspices, but it does not appear that your willingness to accept the office (or the sufficiency perhaps of your health) was counted on. You say nothing on the subject of Merinoes; which...
