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.
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...
Cape François, 21 Jan. 1792 . He regrets to report that the flattering prospect of a return to tranquillity in the Northern District “has been recently obscured by unexpected depredations of the Insurgents.” For the past fortnight “those remorseless Savages” have amused themselves by burning the ripe cane fields in that area. This has revived melancholy memories of the conflagration that...
Cape François, 24 Jan. 1792 . His last was the 21st current. This city was alarmed between 7 and 9 o’clock in the evening of the 22d by a cannonade from the batteries of Petit Ance and the plantation of St. Michel, occasioned, it is said, “by the appearance of a considerable Body of the Brigands who had the temerity to approach St. Michel apparently with the intention of attempting to burn it...
I took the liberty to write you under the 29th. ulto. mentioning the disagreable intelligence that had recently been received from Port-au-Prince. The fears I then had that new mischief would speedily ensue, have proved but too justly founded. A terrible affray has taken place at Port-au-Prince between the Mulattoes and whites wherein many lives were sacrificed. Fire was set to the Town in...
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...
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...
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...
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...
