Le Havre, 3 Sep. 1789 . Acknowledging TJ’s letter of 30th, he feels himself honored by his correspondence. Immediately went on board four vessels in port: one, for Boston, “is rather a Crazy Ship,” and he would not choose to risk himself on her at any season, especially the present; second, a brig for New York, very incommodious; third, a three-year old ship belonging to Robert Taylor of...
I have the honor of your Letter of the 10th. currt. and in reply beg leave to acquaint you that the Ship which I advised you of, belonging to Norfolk, took her departure for Lymington in Great Britain three or four days since; from thence she will proceed to Virginia with a Cargo of Salt. There is not now at this place any Vessel bound directly to any American Port southward of Philadelphia. I...
I was honor’d with your several favors of 15th. and 17th . Currt. in due course of Post, and should earlier have acknowledged the receipt of them, if at same time I could have had the pleasure to communicate any intelligence that might be useful or interesting. I have now to acquaint you that your Baggage arriv’d here only this day; having been detain’d, as I suppose, by the strong westerly...
I had the honor of writing you a hasty line yesterday, and agreably to my intimation therein, I now resume the Pen to observe, that as affairs are at present circumstanced, in my humble opinion you will do well to accept the offer made you from London to have a ship from thence touch at the mother bank , Isle of Wight, to take you on board. There are several excellent Passage-Boats constantly...
I find that Mr. Wheatcroft, pursuant to the orders he received from Messrs. Le Mesurier & Cie. has put your four packages at the Custom House, after the usual forms; so that the treasury order has been of no service with respect to them. The whole have been unpack’d, but as Mr. Wheatcroft personally attended till they were again repack’d, I am confident they will be found safe and in as good...
At sea, Latt. 7° 40’ north, Long. 13° West from London, 5 Mch. 1790 . Hopes TJ arrived safely, found affairs there to his wishes, and “duly received the cordial congratulations of a grateful Country.”—Soon after seeing TJ off at Cowes, he left Le Havre on a long voyage “rather… of observation than immediate emolument.” In two years at Le Havre he found “the general intercourse between that...
I took the liberty of writing you, dated at Sea, 5th. March ulto. A few days after that period, at Cape Mount on the Windward Coast of Africa, I had the pleasure of receiving the Letter wherewith you honor’d me under date 21st. Novr. ulto. Under March 30th. I acknowledged the receipt of that welcome notice of your arrival in Virginia. I dispatch’d my Letters for New York via the West Indies;...
Since I did myself the honor of writing you from hence under the 6th Ultimo, a series of Political Events has presented in this Colony which I presume you will deem worthy your notice; therefore without any further apology I shall take the liberty of transmitting you a slight sketch of them. Conscious that I am but a shallow Politician, I shall not presume to make Conjectures nor Comments; but...
After what I took the liberty to write you from hence under the 4th. Current, with a hasty Postscript of the 6th., I presume it will be agreable to you to know that a temporary suspension of all altercation between the General Assembly of this Colony and M. Le Comte de Peinier has taken place by mean of as unexpected and I think as extraordinary an occurrence as is recorded in the History of...
Le Havre, 19 Apr. 1791 . TJ’s of 26 Nov. did not arrive in time to be acknowledged by Henrietta . The information he sent from St. Domingo would lead one to expect magnanimity of its legislature would be cordially received by National Assembly. On contrary, French commercial interests, aided by intrigues of La Luzerne, engaged Barnave and other leaders to oppose the colony’s legal...
