We reached our quarters last evening at the Camp between 8 & 9 o’c. and made out very well. I have passed the forenoon among the troops, who are in high spirits and make a good appearance. The reports as to the enemy have varied every hour. The last and probably truest information is that they are not very strong, and are without cavilry [ sic ] and artillery, and of course that they are not...
Finding that our army had left Montgomery Court House, we pushed on to this place, with a view to join it, or proceed to the City, as further information might prescribe. I have just recd. a line from Col. Monroe, saying that the Enemy were out of Washington, & on the retreat to their Ships & advising our immediate return to Washington. We shall accordingly set out thither immediately. You...
and I can not yet learn what has been the result. Should the fort have been taken, the British Ships with their barges will be able to throw the City again into alarm, and you may be again compelled to retire from it, which I find would have a disagreeable effect.

The enclosed came to my hands, too late—to send over yesterday. The President being so unwell —I take the liberty to enclose it you—to hand him—so soon as he is restored to health—which I pray God may […] speedily be the case—its so warm, ⟨I am⟩ hardly able to write—the Girls all beg their respects—very respectfully & Sincerely I am your Obedt. Servt. Printed facsimile of RC (Scott J. Winslow...

JB would have been to have visited Mr Madison but from an apprehension that company is but ill adapted to a sick man. Should Dr. Watkins be at Mr M’s if proper he would confer a favor by immediately visiting Mrs. Barbour who has been indisposed...
I snatch a moment and a very bad pen to tell you that we ended our journey in good time that is before it was dark. The roads, with a little exception, were better than was expected. We found every body well, much regretting that you could not join in the visit. It was well that I did not decline it, for there would not have been a Quorum without me, Gen’l Taylor & Mr. Breckinridge, not being...
I had made up my Mind on my return from Spain never to trouble Mr. Madison even with the mention of any disappointmt in which the Mission his partiality conferd on Me had resulted from unforeseen circumstances; I kept my resolution, untill the acceptance of my modest position here, and I should invariably have adherd to it had not an intimation from the President to the Secy of State first...
It is a source of sincere regret that I have not the pleasure of being personally acquainted, with the two Individuals, who of all on earth besides, have been, the most bounteous friends, of my dear Mother and her children, and to whose patronage we owe every advantage we enjoy: for had it not been for Mr: Madison and yourself Madam, I cannot conceive what would have been our fate, the...
We arrived about sun set: just as they were commencing their Desert. The Genl. had arrived about 3 o C. with his son & Secrety. the last so sick that he went to bed instead of Dinner. I have not heard how he is this morning. I found here only the General & his family, Col. Campbel & Wm. Roane of the Council, who will attend him till he goes out of the State, and a few of the family connection....
