Letter not found. Ca. 15 March 1797. Referred to in Jones to JM, 23 Mar. 1797 . Mentions arrival in Fredericksburg of a vessel with goods shipped by JM.
… We are here much at a loss to account for Hamilton’s letter giving notice of his intention to resign…. It will make an opening which, if filled by a proper person, of staunch republican principles, will prove an important acquisition…. Is there any reason to expect Mr. Jay’s mission will produce compensation for the plundered merchants and the execution of the treaty of peace? … Printed...
I have yours inclosing a paper of the 20th. inst. which rather weakens than strengthens the report of the good fortune of the French in vanquishing and capturing the D. York & his army, and of the retaking Toulon—events if they shall be verified that cannot fail to make a deep impression on the British nation and increase the number of opponents to the prosecution of the War. The vote agt....
The day after my return I wrote you a few lines to let you know I was at home I shall in a few days be obliged to set out on the eastern circuit and shall not return untill between the 20th. and last of may. I shall reach Williamsburg the 28th. of April if not a day or two before where I shall remain abt. twelve days I shall be glad to hear from you at that place any material occurrence that...
Being longer detained in Albemarle than I expected I did not arrive here untill the last evening, when I received your letters of the 2d. & 5th. and of the 13th. I will attend to what you recommend respecting the republication of observations under the signature Citizen two Nos. have only appeared that have come to my knowledge and these in papers of the first week of the month. The lapse of...
RC ( LC : Madison Papers). No docket or cover. The last post brot. me a Letter from the Treasurer which determines my visit to Congress. He informs me he has bills to the amount of upwards of twelve hundred pounds on Philadelphia which he wishes to apply to the use of the Delegation and had written to you and also to me informing us of it, that our Correspondents, and those of the other...
As soon as I returned from Loudoun I wrote you a letter which I supposed wod. be in time for you to answer about the time I shod. leave Fredericksburg for this place, that is that I might receive the answer by that time—yours of the 3d. inst. I have this moment recd. and can only inform you that I had requested information respecting the Rock Castle land as well as other things—and informed a...
Since my last to you I have recd. a letter from Monroe dated the 4th & 6th Septr. It came by the last post and cost me 5/9—from whence or how it came I cannot discover by the marks on the letter. He informs me they were all well, and that he expected to write to Yourself and Mr. Jefferson by the same opportunity—that he had before written to the Secretary of State. The news it contains we have...
I have recd. your letter of the 21st. last month and thank you for the communications it contains. Unquestionably the Secretary of State would have been a preferable arrangemt. to the one provided for by the act in case of a vacancy in the Executive office—whatever may be said in favor of the pro. tem. president of the Senate or Speaker of the H. R. as Officers (and it will be difficult to...
We have heard much of the di[s]agreement between the two Houses respecting titles and the rules to be established for their correspondence—if report speaks truth they have manifested a strong desire for titles and pre-eminence—how comes it that the doors where the Senate sit in their legislative capacity are shut and those of the representatives open—it appears to be equally proper and...
Col. Heth came to Town and proceeded on his journey sooner than I expected and before I had an opportunity of seeing Mr. Harris. After calling upon him and geting the survey of the Canal I found little information could be collected from it and inserted on the map. I have therefore sent what Mr. Lambert had executed by Col. Henley who I understand means to go on Tomorow and has promised to...
I have a letter from Mr. Randolph authorising me to draw on him for £200 on Monroes account which I presume is all he can admit of but is short of the sum I had proposed and he from your communication intended to advance—whatever sum Monroe has requested him to furnish me, I wish him to supply, if he thinks he can with propriety do it, otherwise not by any means. I do not wish any direct...
The inclosed letter to Monroe you will forward to him or return to me as you shall think most proper upon a consideration of circumstances respecting his return which is much better known to yourself then to me. If there is a probability of his receiving it in Europe I wish it to go. If this follows you to Orange where from your last it is probable you are gone, You will I expect find the...
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...
Mr. Jefferson left this yesterday morning before the arrival of the Stage so that your letter to him by the mail is returned—he meant to take one of the Stages at Alexa. leaving his horses there untill his return. Dr Shipen who came in the stage met him about 3 miles above Falmouth. After the receipt of your letter finding the examination continued I went up Town and missed of Green who was...
Mr. Green and Mullin will republish the Citizen and I observe the 1st. Number in Greens last paper. I have to number four and wish you to have the following numbers inserted in Baches’s paper as from them I can have them republished withot. your inclosing them and being subjected to postage. I understand you will be voted for to represent the County of Orange and will be elected unless you...
RC ( LC : Madison Papers). Undocketed and cover missing. I have no Letter from you by this Post. expecting to receive from Mr. Ross a duplicate of the Bill which fell into the hands of the Robbers and forward it to you this week I came to Town to day but have no letter from him. Col. Monroe writes me he promised to send it. my friend Griffin will therefore be obliged to wait longer than I...
I lately returned from my trip to Loudoun and Albemarle—what was doing in the Assembly I mentd. in my letter to you before I set out and you have seen the subsequent proceedings in the papers which is all I have seen or heard myself respecting the business I left them engaged in. In my way to Albemarle I called at Col. Madisons but he and his Lady were on a visit to Mr. Hites. The commencemt....
Your letter of 18th. Apr: last did not come to hand untill the 7th. of this month being delivered to me by Mr. Hereford of Haymarket on my way to the Genl. Court, or it should have been sooner attended to. I am here on my way home and meditated calling to see you but such is the state of the roads and my necessity for geting home I must abandon the intention. Col. Monroes affairs are under the...
On my return a few days past I wrote you a letter and requested you wod. take the trouble to obtain from Mr. Beache and transmit me his acct. that I might inclose the amount to you or him in bank paper. I wish also to know whether he or myself according to his terms are liable for the postage. I was apprehensive from the vote of the House changing their Speaker the majority of that Body wod....
In expectation this will find you in Philaa: where the best information can be obtained respecting the returns of Electors for the several States, and from whence a well grounded conclusion may be formed—I wish to hear what hopes you have of the ultimate decision. From the last acct. we have of the Pensylvania elections (Fayette Green and Westmoreland returns not in) I think the Republican...
My health has been so unsettled this fall I have been but little in Richmond. When I last came down I wrote you a letter but as I have not for some time heard from you I suspect it was in the mail that was robed or that you were absent from New york. The Session of the general assembly it is thought will terminate about Christmass. The first month of their being together was employed in...
We have nothing in this quarter worth mentioning or I should more frequently make communications. I conclude you receive our papers regularly or would inclose them weekly. Although the proceedings of the House of representatives on the impost bill produced some remarks and altercation respecting its equality and policy yet I think the disputes appr. to have somewhat more of warmth respecting...
I am to thank you for your several favors since the commencement of the session of Congress and also for a present of potatoes delivered by Col. Madisons Waggoner by your desire as he informed me—they are excellent for the year and appear to be of superior quality from the common red potatoe. As yet I do not discover that any thing has taken place in your house to shew or determine the...
It has turned out much as I expected—there are few men who possess sufficient public spirit to relinquish or hazard individual int. for general good. British credit still maintains its influence and will continue to do so especially when aided by the monied int of this country, wch. will generally be in concert to prevent any measure that may eventually affect either. I fear the longer we...
I thank you for the papers and your late favor explaining the business of Monroe with Mr. Randolph. Be pleased to attend to transmitting the inclosed. Mr. Brent is not I presume the Author of the Pamphlet you sent, from him it was expected something would appear in answer to Lees address to the people of the district which savored not a little of selfimportance and exaltation of himself above...
I expected to have been with you before now but have been unwell a few days past wch. has delayed me. Anty. goes up with a few things to Monroes wch. I suppose will be wanting there while I am up. He brings all the Coffee that came here in the Matt package—package and Coffee weighed 38 lb whe. it was the whole that should have come I am uninformd. I have sent you a pine apple cheese which I...
I have your favors of the 12th. and 14th. of the month with the Papers inclosed. It is somewhat strange we have no letters public or private from Monroe when so many opportunities have offered since his arrival and in particular the Corvette arrived at Baltimore with despatches for the Minister of France. The Republic appears to pursue her victories in all quarters and to bid fair to vanquish...
I thank you for your letters with the papers inclosed. It appears from the accounts I have seen that Mr. A. will be reelected and I think and have heretofore expressed that opinion to Monroe that the investigation of his opinions and their tendency was not commenced in time to make the impression on the Public mind that was necessary to effect a change—nor do I think his conduct in office (if...
I returned last evening from Loudoun where I had been two weeks geting the land surveyed and fixing some hands on a small part of it or your favors of the 2d. & 4th. should have been sooner noticed. My absence prevented my attending to your letter to J. Willis but no inconvenience has resulted from it. The story you mention had been circulated and some had asked me if I thought it true or had...
