Your favor of the 2d. instant did not come to hand until last Saturday night; I had written a long answer, and detailed my intended operations in case of a certain unfortunate event in the decision of the House of Representatives of the U.S. Engaged in this work a little before eleven this forenoon our Express arrived from Washington with letters from my friends, announcing the glorious...
The important election has been so far favorable for the Republicans; you & Mr; Burr have 73 votes each, and the House of Representatives must, on the second Wednesday in the next month, chuse one of you two for President. As it appears from the explicit & honorable conduct of Mr; Burr there will be no competition on his part, it is reasonably to be expected that there can be no difficulty in...
My Predecessor sent you the Copy of a vote of Congress of the 14th. of June last, appointing you a Minister for negociating a peace: As no answer has been yet received, a doubt has taken place, whether the information had reached you, and therefore I now inclose you a Duplicate. Permit me, Sir, to congratulate you on this evidence of the full confidence and esteem of your Country, and to hope...

Your esteemed letter of the 24th. last month I received, and I confess the sentiments therein expressed coeincide with my own: The hearts of our opponent leaders I do not expect to gain, but those of the persons lead by them may be secured by the measures you suggest, and when the principals discover the desertion, prudence & self-interest will induce at least a cessation of their hostilities,...
Permit me to congratulate you on your second appointment to the most dignified station your fellow Citizens in the United States of America can confer. Your majority has been greater than my most sanguine expectations had predicted, and exceeds (if my knowledge of the condition of the human character in America is correct) what any of your successors will ever obtain. As an incendiary &...
Since the commencement of the sessions of the Legislature of this State, my public & private engagements have prevented my paying my respects to you until now: having little to communicate, and nothing that required speed; and knowing how your time must be employed with Congress, & by visits on business and of ceremony, must constitute my appology. The last general election in Pennsylvania has...
A vacancy has happened in the office of Superintendant of military stores of the U.S. by the death of General Irvine. The Secretary at War, in his tour to Boston, called on Doctor Logan here, about the time of Genl. Irvine’s death, and desired him to think of some military character, whom he could recommend to fill this office; a few days ago Doctor Logan made me a visit, when he named Colo....
Having lately recieved letters from several of my old friends in Delaware, chiefly relating to their political affairs, and particularly the inimical conduct of most of those, who hold offices there under the United States, towards Republicans, and collecting from them, that they wish you to be informed of their opinions, tho’ they seem to be unwilling to communicate them directly, owing to...
