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 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 had the honor to write you under the 24th. ulto., several Detachments of Troops have arrived here from France, amounting to 12 or 14 hundred effective men. These are barely sufficient to reinforce the most important posts, and the Whites must yet submit to the mortification of acting only on the defensive. However, this seasonable succour is received with great Joy, being considered as...
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...
If the name of so obscure an Individual as now presumes to address you, may be permitted to salute your friendly glance in the philosophic shades of Monticello , I hope you will at the same time feel a conviction that the Person who bears it still retains for you that sincere Esteem and profound Veneration with which a near view of your Virtues and Talents inspired him at a period more remote...
I have found Doctor Edwards’s [Rx.] for extracting the Essence of Peruvian Bark.—I have the honor to inclose you the original manuscript as I reced it from [Said] Doctor’s own hand. Please to accept the hommage of my highest respect and consideration. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
As you have been pleased to express your approbation of my new process for Ropemaking, and are desirous to know upon what conditions I will cede the privilege of using such of my machinery as may be conveniently employed on board the Ships of War of the United States,—I shall now proceed to make you some propositions upon that subject:—but I beg your permission to state a few preliminary...
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...
Philadelphia, 30 Jan. 1793 . Knowing “the wish and intention of the political Fathers of our Country to cherish and protect its Commerce, that great source of Federal Revenue,” he represents the need for a consul or vice--consul at Cadiz, a port as heavily frequented by American vessels as any other on the Continent. American citizens have incurred considerable expense there without a consular...
Paris, 3 Oct. 1800. He has not written since his letter of 27 Aug. 1798 by Dr. Logan, in part because he felt isolated by the trend of politics in the United States, which is now taking a more favorable turn. Although the American commissioners were not the best suited individuals to make progress in relations with France, they have negotiated an agreement and it seems probable that they will...
