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...
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...
Paris, 19 Feb. 1798 . Although it has been several years since he has written, he wishes to retain a place in TJ’s memory. He congratulates the country on TJ’s acceptance of the vice presidency, but cannot commend the United States on its foreign policy or “refrain from hazzarding an opinion” based on his observations. More than a year ago he foresaw that the French government’s intentions to...
This Evening hearing that a Vessel will take her departure for Philadelphia early to morrow morning, I take the liberty to acquaint you with my arrival here about three weeks since. Doubtless you have been particularly inform’d of the horrid devastation that has lately desolated the richest part of this flourishing colony. Therefore I shall not intrude a new detail on that subject. I will only...
Since I did myself the honor of writing you under 1st. March ulto. I have been in daily expectation of quitting this City, and therefore discontinued that narration of public occurrencies which I have taken the liberty of transmitting you from hence, in the hope soon to have the pleasure of communicating it to you verbally; but finding it yet uncertain when I may have the gratification of...
Le Havre, 29 July 1791 . Enclosing letter from Short, to which he will not add since he presumes it contains every public occurrence worthy of TJ’s notice.—Believing from many circumstances a more extensive and advantageous trade “will speedily take place between France and North America,” he has decided to establish himself there and has become interested in Le Mesurier & Cie. Hence, if the...
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...
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...
Permit me to acquaint you that I arrived at this Port a few days since after a Passage of Fifty days from Bordeaux. By the public Newspapers which I have seen here, I find you are already in possession of all the important political intelligence known at Bordeaux previous to my departure. Mr. Armstrong’s dispatches for Government by the ship in which I came, he gave in charge to Mr. Henry...
