RC ( LC : Madison Papers). Cover missing. Docketed by JM, “Ocr. 30. 1783.” After two or three interruptions on the road by rainy weather I arrived here the 23d. tolerably well two days after Mr. Hardy and Monroe called on me in their way to Philadelphia by whom you will receive this. they hope to find Congress in the City by the time they get up but by your communication received by the Post...
I have your favor by Col Richd. Taylor. The letter for the Attorney has been delivered and he is informed when Mr Taylor will be in town. Mr Maier some time past made application to the Executive, and laid before them a state of his case. Altho’ it was not altogether satisfactory he had a legal demand agt. the State, yet the circumstances were in general so favourable to his Pretensions, he...
Being from Town when your order for the Trunk arrived was the reason it was not then sent. If an opportunity offers it shall be forwarded as you desire. In the mean time the precaution of preserving the cloaths from the moth by exposing them to the sun has been attended to and shall be repeated. I know not whether any Copy of the resolution you allude to has been officially communicated to Mr....
Mr. Beckley has at length furnished me with a copy of the resolution you lately requested might be sent to you. I confide it to the care of Mr. Maury of Fredericksburg in hopes it will get safe and soon to your hands. Mr. Blair tells me a Copy of this resolution has been transmitted to the State of Maryland but knows nothing further of the matter—perhaps the Clerk or Speaker sent one to Mr....
Before the receipt of your favor by Majr. Moore I had procured from Mr. Beckley copies of the bills you wanted and you will receive them inclosed. Something is indispe[n]sably necessary to be done respecting the Courts of Justice or they will soon become grievances instead of giving relief or administering Justice. Each of them is already overcharged with business—the general Court much...
Since my return to Richmond, which place I left soon after the Governor set out, I have yours of the 27th. from Philadelphia. Mr. Dorhman who has arrived here within a few days past informed us your information from New York of other Delegates coming forward was well founded as you had ten States represented when he came away. I entertain hopes from the disposition of the Members convened that...
We are not to know the result of your deliberations for five or six weeks to come, as from all accounts your Session will continue untill some time in August. Some of your uxorious members will become impatient from so long absence from home. How does the Dr. stand it—enjoy himself as usual in the society of his friends, or cast longing looks towards Richmond. Mrs. McClurg is, and looks well,...
I have your letter of the 26th. ult. The Post preceding the arrival of yours brought a letter from the Governor, inclosing Mr. Wythes resignation, when the filling the vacancy made by that Gentlemans departure from Convention was considered, and determined by the Executive to be unnecessary. The length of time the Convention had been seting, and the representation of the State then attending,...
Since my last to you I have been very much indisposed and untill a few days past unable to write or attend to any business. At this time I am barely strong enough to take exercise. Are we likely to have a happy issue of your meeting, or will it pass over withot. effect. Finding you still continue together our hopes are not lost. My fears, however, I must confess are rather increased, than...
Although I wanted materials for a letter, I should have droped you a few lines had I not been absent sometime from Fredericksburg and had I not also been informed that convention wod. certainly rise the first week of this month. The continuance of your Session and some Stories I have heard since my return and on my visit to Alexandria make me apprehensive there is not that unanimity in your...
