According to the desire expressed in your letter by Capt. Yeaton I have enquired into the practicability of getting him naturalised here, and authorised to command his vessels, but the information given us, rendering it probable that more time would be consumed, in attending here till the objects could be obtained, than he chuses to spare, he declines pursuing it. I will beg permission to...
I have lately received a letter from the Secretary for Foreign affairs in America, on the case of a Mr. Fortin, an American to whom an inheritance in the town of Havre has fallen some time ago. The party complains of delays in the recovery of his inheritance, and the Minister desires my enquiries into the cause of them, and that I will endeavor to obtain that dispatch which is an essential...
I have taken the liberty to send this day to your address 3 trunks and a box, all of them containing books and nothing else. They are all marked L.S. They are directed as follows. The box. Edmund Randolph. Richmond. Virginia. The two largest trunks. James Madison. Orange. To the care of James Buchanan. Richmond. The smallest trunk. James Madison. Williamsburgh. Virginia. By which you will...
I received yesterday your favour informing me that your Ship Eolus would sail on the 5th. inst. As you had expected she would not sail till the 15th. when you wrote me before, I had so informed the two Mr. Fitzhughs, two gentlemen of Virginia who wished to go in her. When I received your letter yesterday therefore, the warning to them was too short to get ready. Of consequence they have...
I am to thank you for the receipt of your favor of the 4th. inst. but am obliged to trouble you further, to inform me whether any suit was ever commenced for Mr. Fortin to recover the estate fallen to him? If a suit was commenced, whether it has been decided, and what was the decision? Or if not decided, for what cause it is suspended, and when will it probably come to decision? I am sorry to...
I received last night a letter from the Mr. Fitzhughs informing me that the delay of their departure occasioned them to be in want of money. If you will be so good as to furnish them with four hundred livres I will repay it to your bill on me on sight. Be pleased to mention in the bill that it is for so much paid to them by my order. I pray of you the further trouble of delivering them the...
I received the day before yesterday your favor of the 21st. and thank you for your care of my letter to the Mr. Fitzhughs. In mine of Nov. 11. addressed to you I took the liberty of asking you to furnish them with four hundred livres and to draw on me for the money. Instead of this you will be pleased to consider the twenty guineas (mentioned in your letter) as advanced at my request and to...
[ Paris, 28 Nov. 1785 . Entry in SJL reads: “Limozin. For Mazzei’s trunk.” Not found.]
I have for two months past been in England. On my return to this place, which was only on Sunday last, I found your favor of March 17. I suppose the ship Hanover, which you therein mention as bound for Virginia, must be gone before this date. Monsr. La croix, the bearer of this, tells me he goes in a ship of yours bound to New York. By him therefore I send some small packages for America, and...
On receipt of your letter of May 21. I gave the notice you desired to Mr. Walpole, who, I doubt not, has written you on the subject. I thank you for your care of the trunks and box of books, as well as for your information that the ship Clementine will sail shortly for Norfolk in Virginia. In consequence of this I have sent by the Diligence d’eau a box containing a model in plaister for the...
In expectation that the ship bound from your port to Norfolk in Virginia may not be gone, I take the liberty of sending under your address by the Diligence a packet for Mr. Madison in Williamsburg, which I will pray you to forward by that vessel. I have the honour to be with much respect Sir Your most obedient & most humble servt., PrC ( MHi ).
I have taken the liberty to desire the Sieur de Presolle to send to your address some packages of cartouch boxes for the state of Virginia. I will beg the favor of you to receive and forward them by some vessel going into James river. Your draft on me for charges shall be paid on sight. I have the honor to be with much respect Sir your most obedient & most humble servt., PrC ( MHi ); endorsed.
I am honoured with your favor of the 2d. inst. but of the two packages that you mentioned as accompanying it, only one came to hand. The other should have contained seeds from America. I mention this, that if it escaped your notice when you forwarded the other, you may be so kind as to do it now, or if it was forwarded you may advise me how to trace it. I have written to Mr. Garvey to ask his...
[ Paris, 17 Aug. 1786 .An entry in SJL under this date, partly illegible, reads: “Limozin [Introduct]ion of Bassville and Morrises.” Letter not found; but see Bassville to TJ, 18 Aug ., and Limozin to TJ, 2 Sep. 1786.
I have duly received your favor of the 14th. inst. Had Congress made appointment of Consuls regularly in the several ports, the difficulty would not have happened which is the subject of your letter. But their other business has as yet prevented the final completion of arrangements for that department. In the mean while we must conduct the business as well as we can, the Agents in the several...
Paris, 2 Nov. 1786. This letter is almost identical with TJ’s letter to John Bondfield of this date , q.v., with the exception that it encloses passports for “two thousand four hundred cartouch boxes and accoutrements which will be the amount of the whole purchase when it shall be completed.” PrC ( DLC ); 1 p.; in Short’s hand, including signature; at foot of text: “(Test W Short Sec).”
Your favor of Dec. 13. is this moment put into my hands. I will be obliged to you to send the box (which was to have gone by La Croix) by the Le Couteulx to Norfolk. I have no correspondent in Norfolk, and will therefore beg the favor of you to address it to yours at that place, with a request that he will forward it to a Colo. Richard Cary near Hampton (to whom, if I recollect rightly, it is...
I am honoured with your favor of the 3d. inst. and thank you for the letters it covered. This will be handed you by two American gentlemen Colo. Franks and Mr. Bannister, who propose to go passengers in the packet, and whom I beg leave to recommend to your notice. I shall set out this day sennight for the South of France and probably shall be absent from Paris two or three months. Mr. Short,...
A friend in S. Carolina sent a letter and a box of plants for me to Mr. Otto, chargé des affaires of France at New York. The letter came by the packet the Courier de l’Europe, and was sent to me from l’Orient. I presume Mr. Otto sent the box of plants by the same conveiance but as the packet received orders on her arrival at l’Orient to repair immediately to Havre, she landed only her...
The inclosed letter is to announce to Congress the death of the Count de Vergennes and appointment of the Count de Montmorin to succeed him. As the winds seem to have been contrary to the sailing of the packet boat, I send it by post and beg the favor of you to deliver it to Colo. Franks if he is not gone; and if he is, to send it by the first vessel. I have received duly the papers which...
Your favors of the 31st. March, 5th and 22d of May coming while I was absent on a voiage of 3. or 4. months, have for that reason remained thus long unanswered. Your bill for the amount of your advances for me shall be duly answered: I will ask the favor of you at the same time to send me a state of the articles that I may transfer them to the account of the United states, or of the state of...
I did not know till last night that my bookseller had sent off the three boxes of books which I had mentioned in a former letter that I should take the liberty of addressing to your care. I will beg the favor of you to send them all by the next packet to New-York, ordering them all to be delivered to Mr. Madison, whose address is on the box marked I.M. No. 4. and who will take charge of the...
I am favored with your letter of the 20th. inst. and will pay your draught for the sum due you at sight. I wish the three boxes of books may have arrived so as that the expences of them may be added to your bill, that I may be enabled to put them into the accounts I shall send by the packet which sails next. The vessel in which my seeds should have come, belonged to Shore, McConnico & Ritson,...
Your bill in favor of Sartorius was presented to me and paid to-day. There is no change since my last which occasions a fear of sudden hostilities. You may be assured that the courts of London and Versailles are sincerely striving to prevent a war. The king of Prussia has made a late move which wore a threatening aspect; but it is hoped these two powers will be able to recall him to his...
I have duly received your favors of the 19th. and 24th. of August and the box of papers mentioned in the last are at the Syndic chamber from which I shall receive them to-day. Appearances for a little while had taken more the aspect of war, but the hopes of a continuance of the peace prevail at this moment, and are perhaps stronger than when I wrote you last. The approach of autumn and winter...
By the inclosed paper I presume there are arrived for me on board the packet three small boxes of seeds or plants, and a large box, the contents of which I know not. I will beg the favor of you to pay for me the freight and other expences, and to send the three small boxes by the Diligence. As to the large one, I conjecture it may contain bones and other objects of Natural history which should...
Immediately on the receipt of your favor of the 31st. of August I waited on the person who is charged with the superintendance of the conduct of the farms, and informed him that the Custom house officers had required the antient duties on a cargo of pearlash arrived at Havre. He observed to me that the duties promised to be abolished by the king were only those due to himself or the farms; but...
I must beg the favor of you to put the inclosed letter into the hands of Monsr. Bourgoin who is going passenger in the packet to America. He has received my other dispatches, but this was not ready when he left Paris. The boxes of plants are not yet arrived, which I mention lest sickness or some other accident should detain the carter at Havre still.—With respect to war, appearances are still...
Mr. Jefferson begs the favor of Monsieur Limozin to deliver the inclosed to the same Monsr. Bourgoin, passenger on board the packet, to whom he desired his last to be delivered. This contains the copy of a letter from the minister promising the reduction of duties on tar pitch and turpentine, which Mr. Jefferson had sollicited, and to interest himself with the city of Rouen to reduce the local...
I must trouble you with another letter to Mr. Jay, to be delivered to Monsr. Bourgoin on board the packet, which I hope will not be sailed before it gets to your hands, as the latter is of extreme importance. It is to inform Congress that official advice is just received here that the Prussian troops entered the territory of Holland on the 15th. instant, that most of the principal towns had...
Yet another letter Sir to go by the packet. It conveys information that the British Minister here has formally notified the court that they are arming generally for the present war. I am Sir Your most obedt. servt., PrC ( DLC ). Enclosure: TJ to John Jay, preceding.
I have duly received your favor with my account, balance 180. 7s which shall be paid to your order. I observe it supposed with you that the differences between the courts of London and St. James are nearly settled. But be assured on the contrary that no accomodation is expected, and that war is as certain as it can be, without being actually commenced or declared. There remains indeed a...
Congress alone has the power of appointing Consuls for the United states of America. No convention being as yet finally settled with this government for regulating the Consular functions, Congress have made no appointment for France, except of Mr. Barclay to be their Consul general. He found it necessary to name agents in the several ports to protect the citizens of the United states till...
I have the honor to inform you that declarations on the part of France and England for the continuance of peace were signed last night at Versailles, of which be so good as to notify the citizens of the U.S. concerned in commerce at your port, for their future government. I have the honor to be sir your most obedt. & most hble. Servt., PrC ( DLC ); in the hand of William Short, signed by TJ;...
It is some time since I have had the honour of acknowleging regularly the receipt of your favors. Those of Oct. 11. and 20. and Nov. 2. and [9.] have come duly to hand. I am very glad the American sailors have found the protection of so good a friend. I have been for some time in daily expectation of communicating to you some interesting regulations on our commerce. But as yet the minister has...
Letter not found. 8 December 1787. Acknowledged in Limozin to JM, 26 Jan. 1788 . Forwarded by Jefferson to Limozin on 22 Jan. 1788 ( Boyd, Papers of Jefferson Julian P. Boyd et al., eds., The Papers of Thomas Jefferson (19 vols. to date; Princeton, 1950——). , XII, 528). Encloses bill of lading for the box of fruit trees, two barrels of apples, and two barrels of cranberries sent to Jefferson.
I have the honor now to acknolege the receipt of your favors of the 18th. and 19th. of November and two of the 18th. of the present month. I did not write to you immediately on receipt of the two first, because the observations they contained were to be acted on here. I was much obliged to you for them, as I have been frequently before for others, and you will find that I have profited by them...
In your favor of the 18th. instant you were so kind as to inform me that the American ship Juno, Capt. Jenkins, would sail from your port for New York about the 3d. of January. I avail myself therefore of that opportunity for the conveyance of dispatches to Mr. Jay, which are of great consequence. As it is improper they should go thro’ the post office, I send a servant with them express and...
You will receive herewith a letter from me [enclosing] a letter from the Comptroller general on the subject of our tobacco and an Arret on our other articles of commerce. I send a very large bundle of them by post, addressed to Mr. Jay, which I beg you to forward by the Juno, Capt. Jenkins, who is probably not yet sailed. They were not yet printed when my courier set off yesterday. I have the...
By the Carrosse which goes from hence to Havre I have forwarded a package of rough rice addressed to you. I am in hopes it may arrive in time to go with the inclosed letter by the Juno, capt. Jenkins. I will beg the favour of you to put on it this address ‘For Mr. William Drayton, Charleston: to the care of the Delegates of S. Carolina in Congress,’ and to pay the freight for me. Should Capt....
Your favors of Jan. 10. 11. and 19th. have been duly received. With respect to the plan of an Academical institution to be transported to Virginia and there established, tho’ you do not name the person who applies to you for a ship, yet I conjecture it to be the same who has communicated to me a slight view of such a plan here. So far as it may concern your interest I shall write to you...
The box of plants you were so kind as to forward to me are arrived at the Douane. I shall send for them tomorrow morning, and have the Acquit à caution withdrawn. If it comes to me before the hour of the post it shall be inclosed in this letter. If not, it shall certainly come to you in my next. The Mr. Madison who has written to you, is a member of Congress from the state of Virginia. He is a...
In my letter of yesterday I forgot to mention that I had sent off by the Diligence of the day before two small boxes addressed to you, and which I wished to have forwarded by the packet to New York. As each box had it’s address, and one of them signed by me I am in hopes you will have conjectured what my forgetfulness prevented me from giving you notice of. I am with much esteem Sir Your most...
I have received your favor of the 10th. When I wrote to you on the 8th. and referred you to a letter of the preceding day, it was a mistake. I should have referred you to a letter of the 6th. as I wrote on the 6th. and 8th. only, and not on the 7th. The packet meant in my letter of the 8th. went by the diligence. It was covered with linen addressed to you in the handwriting of my servant. On...
I have received your favor of the 17th. Mine of the 14th. which did not go from here till the 15th. got to your hands probably on the 17th. after you had written. It will have given you the necessary information relative to the boxes, and I shall be glad to know if they went by the packet. The bust of the Marquis de la Fayette went by the Diligence d’eau la bonne union a M. Gonard and left...
Being called to Holland at a very few hours warning I have only time to notify you that I shall be absent from this place three or four weeks to come. In the mean time should any thing pressing occur, Mr. Short, my secretary will attend to it. I have the honour to be with great esteem Sir Your most obedt. humble servt., PrC ( DLC ); at foot of text: “M. Limozin M. Carnes M. Bondfeild.”
Messieurs Van Staphorst will forward from this place to Havre two boxes for me, which I have taken the liberty of addressing to your care. One contains iron ware which cost here 13. gilders, and I suppose must pay duties accordingly. The other contains cups for tea, coffee and chocolate of East India porcelaine. This being prohibited, I must leave to you the method of conveying it to my house...
The bearer hereof, Mr. Ford, will have the honour of delivering you a packet from me, which contains gazettes &c. to be sent by the packet boat which will sail in a few days for New York. I ask the favor of you to receive and keep it till it shall be called for by a passenger who will go from this place and whom I propose to charge with that and my letters. On my return here a few days ago, I...
I had the honor of writing to you on the 4th. instant. Since that I have received a letter from Dunkirk informing me that my boxes of plants are coming on by land. You will not have the trouble therefore of receiving and forwarding them: and I am happy in every occasion of sparing you trouble, of which I am obliged to give you so much and so often.—Messrs. Van Staphorsts of Amsterdam, by a...
My last to you was of the 17. Ult. since which I have been honored with yours of May 22. and June 5. By a letter I have received from Messieurs Van Staphorsts at Amsterdam, I find they have shipt my two stoves on board the same vessel with the boxes of ‘Meubles &c.’ of which I am glad as it will give you trouble once only instead of twice. I find that you have been so kind as to call on Mrs....
