When I had the honor to write you upon the subject of an appointment, I did it with great reluctance from the numerous suggestions of names & applications that must necessarily embarrass and distress you. I will not suppress the expression of a consciousness, that I have undergone the most injurious and severe trials in the public service as a citizen lately, and before as an officer. My...
Among the papers, which I possess in relation to the late transactions of the United states, there are several relative to the British treaty, which it may be useful to pass into your hands. The concessions, sacrifices, and losses of this country may become in some way topics either of argument or negociation, and the papers I refer to, may contribute to the defence of our conduct, or to the...
A gentleman of this place called upon me to day and stated to me the receipt of a letter by him evidencing some kind intentions towards me. There appears to be a necessity of making some remarks and explanations, which I hope will be excused. The reason of mentioning the object in a letter (covered to the Secy of State) from this place, was the certainty represented to me of a vacancy—the...
Public Business having called me to Philada. on the 10th. of March, I did not receive your favor of the 11th. Feby till the 31st. ultimo. The book accompanied it. It was my intention that the papers N. 1. to 8 should have remained in your library, as I have another copy of the Book, and the question of the commencement of violations of neutral trade is very important. The rise and progress of...
The gentleman to whom you wrote on the 26th. of March arrived here a few days ago from Philadelphia, and, during a stay of six days, mentioned to me a passage you did me the honor to write in relation to myself. You will permit me to repeat that I never knew of his writing either of his letters about me ‘till they were sent, that I never asked such an act of friendship of him, and that I...

It is only by candid representations of the disinterested, or the applications of the concerned, that you can add to that stock of information, which your own and your ministers knowledge afford. I trust therefore that in doing myself the honor to communicate these remarks, I shall contribute to your accommodation. The question of alterations in the list of officers, civil, and all others, may...
You will be pleased to consider me as not to disposed to accept the appointments you mention in your letter of the 17th. instant. I hope no person knows that they have been offered to me, particularly by yourself, and I earnestly request that the fact may never be communicated. I could wish, if it is known, that you meditated the offer, that it may be believed that on reflexion you did not...
I wrote by the mail of last evening in reply to your letter of the 17th. that the two places might not be left unattended to. The offer made to me, certain parts of your letter & a publication in the Washington Intelligencer , I think of the 12th., have caused serious reflexions in my mind. I am perfectly acquainted with the sentiments of Pennsa. on one side & I think well informed on the...
In the Course of public business it has been my lot and duty to meet a gentleman, who held a quadrennial situation on the first Wednesday in Decembr.—He had been recently in the army and is, as you will perceive, in the Senate. The inclosed voluntary letter (from the original on public file,) will prove how little calculation is to be made upon that determined hostility to me, which rival and...
