I am to get out of this place in ten days, upon my having paid a fine of two hundred dollars. The money is ready; but if I am to pay it, I shall be so much reduced in my finances, as hardly to be able to go up to Philadelphia. Mr. Jones has advised me to state the matter to you, with reference to a remission. I thought it my duty to do so; and under the supposition of that, I shall wait here...
I hope you will pardon my having sent you revises, instead of clean Sheets of the thing now printing; a freedom inexcusable in any circumstances but mine. I Cannot get my printer to work, although I am actually paying him ready money , as he goes on. So that the whole Sale of the Season will be lost, by the delay of revising the Sheets ! I mention this, Sir, that You may not think me addicted...
An uncommon alarm has been spread here that congress were to annul the Presidential election. I had sent to the Examiner a piece on that business, when upon the arrival of this news, I was advised to withdraw it, untill I should see if it was true! my answer was: “it is a part of my constitution, it is interwoven with my intellectual existence, that the greater opposition is, I become the more...
I inclose some newspapers, and Shall probably use the freedom of sending you by this same post A part of the second part of the 2d volume of The Prospect. The whole is written excepting the first Chapter. I Could not have gone to press, but for the assistance of a Subscriber, who sent me 14 days since his 50 dollars, as mentd in my last , as I want a great deal of money here, I cannot get. I...
I had, some days ago, a visit from Mr. Jefferson of this place. I have just now got the pamphlets stitched, and have sent him 3 copies for you; but under the same parcel, I used the freedom, I almost fear I was in the wrong, of inclosing 9 for Mr. Madison , who is a Subscriber, or was to the first part, for 15 copies, so that I hazard nothing with him in sending him 9. I did not know his...
Along with this comes another letter, covering some newspaper pieces. I beg leave to inclose the last half Sheet but one of the pamphlet, being from 136 page to 144; and an uncorrected imperfect half Sheet of the conclusion; wanting the first page, which closed my hints for the conduct of the Assembly in my case. A half Sheet from p 120, to 128, I have never yet been able to get from the...
I am afraid of being troublesome. I wrote you last week with some pages of The Prospect, and now inclose a few more. I expect to have two pieces in tomorrow’s Argus, and a defence of Mr. Coxe in the Examiner. Mr Larkin Stannard of Spotsylvania was here this minute, and says that some of my Subscribers that he got me, were shy of taking the books after they heard of my being imprisoned. It...
For some time past, I have regularly sent you, as far as they were printed, the Sheets of the 2d volume of The Prospect , because I flattered myself that, although neither the Stile nor matter could be exactly conformable to your ideas, or taste, yet that upon the whole, they would not be disagreeable. Whether I was right or wrong, or whether indeed You received my letters, I do not know....
I have not been able to get any more of the Prospect; but next week I shall be able to Send either the whole, or nearly so. I beg leave to inclose the Copy of a letter to W. Duane on the negro business. It contains some trifles, which may amuse. Governor Monroe has, last night, lost his only Son. It has come out that the fire in Richmond, within these two years, was the work of negroes. I have...
Nothing is talked of here but the recent conspiracy of the negroes . One Thomas Prosser, a young man, who had fallen heir, some time ago, to a plantation within six miles of the city, had behaved with great barbarity to his slaves. One of them, named Gabriel , a fellow of courage and intellect above his rank in life, laid a plan of revenge. Immense numbers immediately entered into it, and it...
