Je commence la présente aujourd’hui pendant l’illumination ordonnée à l’occasion du mariage de la jeune Princesse d’Orange avec le Prince héréditaire de Brunswick. C’est la cloture des réjouissances bruyantes qui durent depuis 8 jours, pendant lesquels la populace s’est donnée carrière. Dans la nuit du 12 au 13, la valetaille mâle et femelle du Logement attenant des 3 villes de Gorcum,...
In my first letter, I mentioned such circumstances of a political nature, relating to several of the principal Powers of Europe, as had then come to my knowledge. The facts, according to subsequent informations, were pretty justly stated. Leaving you to deduce such conclusions as your better judgment shall enable you to form, I proceed now to give you the sequel of intelligence which has...
After the most mature reflection I have at length yielded to my inclinations to suffer my name to be mention’d for a public appointment. If it takes place, unless some unpleasant reflections on probable future events should press on me, it will contribute greatly to my own and the gratification of Mrs. M. as it will place us both with and nearer our friends. But to be candid there is not that...
My being absent on our fall Circuit at the time your circular letter arrived at the Post Office in this Town has hither prevented my paying that attention to your request, which I otherwise should have done. As the Clerk of our Superior Court is still on the Circuit I have not been able to examine his records for Adjudications on the points you mention, tho’ I believe there have been but few...
Since my last the colonial committee have made their report on the disturbances of St. Domingo, and the conduct of the general assembly of that island. The report was an historical series of the events which have taken place in that colony from the convocation of the States-general in France, together with the proposition of a decree in consequence of them. I refer you for the one and the...
I am at a loss how to write to you about public affairs, unless negatively. We have no war, we have no peace. Our various European powers have neither principles that we can understand, nor passions that are avowed. We quarrel with Spain, and have German disagreements threatning us in which our court would mix by preference; and Spain disagrees with us, though hampered with the Moors. Prussia...
I wrote you a few days past in great hurry by the Albemarle post which I presume has been received. You have been able to collect from that communication that my services will be offer’d for the Senate, unless upon the information of my friends it shall appear probable they will be rejected. I gave you there a detail of circumstances relative to that business, and can only now add that as far...
Occasional business in the Western parts of the State deprived me of the pleasure of receiving your Letter of the 12th. of August earlier than a few days ago. The purport of it requiring an examination into the records of the several departments of this Government will put it out of my power to make the collection so early as wished for. Indeed Sir, I fear there will not be a little difficulty...
Yesterday I had the Honour of receiving [you]r esteemed favour of the 29th. August. As you did not make any men[tio]n of your health therein, I am willing to believe and hope that you had gotten [b]etter of your Headachs. I thank you sincerely for your [ki]ndly expressions towards Mr. Corbin Braxton, I am satisfied that if [you] have an opportunity of being serviceable to him, he will always...
The Russian Minister at this Court has received an authentic account from the Minister of his Nation at Vienna of the naval victory gained by the fleet of the Empress over that of the Porte. Of the latter the Admiral’s ship was destroyed, two smaller ships taken, and the rest very much shattered and obliged to fly. The English affect to say this event will protract the war, by making the...
