You will be surprized at recieving a letter from me from this place—I did not contemplate being here & still less being in Europe as late as this— My very great anxiety to be again in America to attend to some of my affairs which required something to be immediately done, as the friend with whom I left my power to represent me at Philadelphia , M r Breck , had died without naming a substitute—...
M r Rives has presented to me the letter by which you were so kind as to make us acquainted—He has been here now some days & I have been very much pleased with him. His being your friend would have insured him at any rate my attention—but I really return you my thanks for having procured me so agreeable an acquaintance. I have taken pleasure in introducing M r Rives to such of my friends here...
I had the pleasure of writing to you on the 1 st of Nov. — & I took the liberty at the same time of inclosing a letter for Price , as being the best, if not the only certain means of getting a letter to him. I hope that was recieved by you—but it has not procured of Price the answer I had counted on. I had hoped it would have conquered his aversion to writing—After so long an interval, I no...
I was exploring the Jersey mountains in search of a farm when your favor of the 15 th Oct. was forwarded here, agreeably to directions left with my agent at Philadelphia , as to my letters. I did not succeed in my search but hope to be more successful next year.— Let me now express all my thanks for your kindness as to Ind. Camp —I am indeed truly obliged by it, & prefer much the plan of...
I have delayed, much longer than I had intended, to answer your favor of the 21 st Sep. & to thank you for your wonted kindness in attending to the commission I took the libert e y of troubling you with— It was executed as you expected & ready for me here, whither I came after whiling away the sickly Season in the Jersey & at Morrisville , which you know is become the seat of Gen l Moreau .— I...
Your favor of the 20 th of August followed me in my summer’s tour & overtook me whilst on the road—I postponed therefore acknowleging it until my return to winter quarters— I have been not the less grateful for your kindness & the trouble you are taking to bring to a happy conclusion the limits disputed limits between Monroe & myself—If his presence should be really necessary, or even his...
Jefferson — Feb 7. to enclose that of M r Bott a — announc g my return—on acc t of public affair & mail— & Breck’s death—& had known it sh d
Your kind letter of Octob: 14. was recieved here the 19 th the very day you fixed as that of your departure for Bedford to remain there until the 1 st of Dec:—I did not therefore attempt to answer it at the moment, as it would have remained at Monticello , until your return—And this I count will get there some time before you & recieve you at your debotter . I write thus early because I am...
Your kind letter of the 9 th of Nov: was recieved here at the time. You mentioned that you were setting off for Bedford & would be absent a month— I postponed therefore acknowleging its reciept so long that I determined to wait until I should again hear from you as to Carter s affair after you had heard from him—so as to trouble you less often. But as I know my good countrymen of the Carter...
Your two favors of the 7 th & 9 th have come to my hands & I return you many thanks for them. I calculated from your letter that you would be absent until the early part of May, & therefore did not acknowlege its reciept immediately. This will be anterior to your return & will wait for you at Monticello , where I hope you will arrive at the time expected & in good health. You will find there...
