I arrived here last Sunday, and finding both the Vice President & DeWitt Clinton out of town, was obliged to rely principally on Mr. Sanford for the appointment of Marshal. A man perfectly competent &, in every respect, proper, Mr Montagnie was first selected but refused the appointment. Peter Curtenius appeared, amongst those who were proposed, the next best, and has accordingly received the...
I send 35 applications for dispatching vessels in ballast referred by the collectors. They are principally either for greater tonnage, or because the proofs are not complete. In support of the first class it is urged in some cases that the applicants own no vessel of a smaller size; and in almost every instance that rum & molasses are the only articles which can be brought from the British...
The arrangements proposed by me for the use of the rooms with North wing of the Capitol may be postponed untill your arrival, when on inspection of them, it may perhaps occur to you to give directions different from those which I have proposed, or which have yet been suggested.

I beg leave to lay before you a small publication concerning the Malignant Fever which has so often prevailed within a few years in various parts of the United States.

In consequence of a conversation which I had the honor to hold with you yesterday, on the Subject of Gunboats I venture to state my reasons for supposing them, the proper kind of Vessels, to afford the most effectual means of Defence and Annoyance within the Bays & Rivers of the United States. The small draft of water enables them to take such positions, as to attack (in a measure) with...
The gentleman who bears this letter has been known by me for a considerable length of time in the Station of Surgeon at Fort Mifflin, and my knowlege of him is such that, tho’ I am sensible I take a great liberty in addressing you concerning him, I am perfectly convinced that if his merits were as well known to you, as I know them, that [you] would think me doing no more than such a duty as...
I am obligd to yield up what I had very much at heart, (a visit to Monticello) to my other riding avocations, and to the extreme heat for the last ten days, as well as the still continued severe & afflicting drought. The Eves of my old House has not dropt five minutes at a time since the 3d July—not a sprig of green grass, and scarcely any vegitation in the Tobacco: of which hereabouts we have...

In the inclosed Intelligencer you will find the letter from Pichon to the Govr. of Louisiana. Having been written without reference to its publication, it is less carefully fitted than Yrujo’s for the contemplated impression; and in connection with that presents some points for sophistical comments, which are made rather more, than less salient by the reflections of the Editor. The letter will...

La mancanza delli Commodi per l’interrotto commercio delle lettere cagionato dalle critiche circostanze delle guerre mi farà credere ingrato ed incivile per avere tardato finora a compire il mio dove re di ringraziare vivamente la Serenissima Republica, e principalmente V.E. per la grazia accordatami di obligare mio Fratello a restituirmi, e mettere in Libertá la mia Moglie, e li miei figli,...

It may be agreed that the land shall be applied to no purpose than light house—& that the keeper shall not keep tavern; but it seems that we cannot agree, that the land paid for shall revert to Mr. Bowdoin if light house be discontinued, nor that the keeper shall not harbour sailors &c. He must be responsible for any trespass to which he is a party, but not the U.S. for him. There must also be...
