I wrote you by the last post & enclosed a small packet for Mr. Dawson wh. I hope was recd., as it respects my affr. with the department of State. Fortunately I found vouchers for all but one item; this however was a heavy one being £150. Strg. I hope the acct. will be closed & the fund assigned to Mr. D. prove adequate. I prefer to pay the money & close the acct. receiving reimbursement...
mr Poinsett , whose name & character are I presume well known to you will have the pleasure of giving you this introduction. He was employd very usefully in S o America , several years, under mr Madison , & had previously travelled thro’ most of the European countries & particularly Russia , by whose Sovereign he was known, & treated with much attention. I expected to have presented him...
Some few days since I arriv’d here and trust I have so arranged the line of communication between us, that whatever alteration the course of events may effect in my own situation, I shall have it in my power to make it subservient to my wishes. I expected I shou’d more effectually put in execution your Excellency’s Orders by coming immediately here, the source from which Governor Nash at...
My last informed you that I had just received yours of the fifth, as I returned from a circuit of professional duties. It communicated to you likewise what I had to communicate respecting your own commissions in that line. The European war becomes daily as it progresses more interesting to us. I was happy to find Mr. Genet whom I passed on the road between Fredbg. and Richmd. had made a most...
I wrote you the day after you left town a letter wh. I gave to Dr. Foushee for Mr. Eppes who promised to breakfast with him on the morning of his departure. It was not till yesterday in council that I heard from the Dr: the letter had not been sent. So much time having elapsed I shod. not now write you on the subject of the former one, reserving it for future communication, if that were the...
I wrote you lately by Col: Mercer, by whom I intended to have forwarded Carey’s letter respecting the documents which you had committed to him relative to the war in our southern states. By accident it was left behind, but is now forwarded. I hope the same which he states to be necessary to redeem the papers will be made up & furnished him. In that case the person to whom it is entrusted here...
Nothing is more difficult than to give you a suitable nomination for comrs. of bankry. at Norfolk. I relied on a gentn. who lately went there for information on that subject, and he declined writing me, preferring to communicate his ideas in person on his return, wh. was not till within a few days. Littleton W. Tazewell lives in Norfolk, but as he has taken a commn. of notary publick of the...
I recd. yours of the 25. ulto. with one to Mr. de Cepede , this morning, when I also recd. my instructions from the department of State , with all the other documents connected with my mission to France & Spn. The ship, Richmond , of abt. 400. tons burden whose cabbin I have taken, cleared at the custom house on saturday , my baggage was put on board, in expectation of sailing yesterday as Mr....
I enclose you a commission for M r Sasserno , as consul for Nice , with a memo: from the dep t of State , relating to its transmission to him, respecting which, we shall be happy to forward your views. I enclose you also an extract from a letter of Gall M r Gallatin , relating to M
It would give me real pleasure to be useful to m r arm i stead , for the reasons which you have stated, if I had the power, but there is no vacancy in the dep t of State , and so closely beset are all the dep ts , by applicants for clerkships, that opportunities rarely occur of introducing into either, any person whom we wish, however deserving of it. I have spoken to the President in m r arm
I have been favored with yours of the 4th. and shall observe the instruction respecting the fund in the hands of Mr. Pope by directing its immediate application to Mr. Barrett. In my last I made some observations evincing the propriety and policy of our neutrality in the present European war, but as that sentiment appears to be general, I refer to it now only as a proof that it is likewise...
We have the honor of addressing this by our worthy friend, the honorable Mr. Sayre, who was formerly Sheriff of London. The active part, which at the commencement of the revolution, he took in favor of America, is, we presume, too well known to you, to require a relation: and the loss he sustained, in consequence of his opposition to the british ministry, is not less a matter of general...
