I have been near committing a great Faux pas. The Times of the 9th reported merely that the Seamen’s Enlistment Bill went through the Committee and the report was ordered to be received on Wednesday following. As none of the points were discussed in the House I concluded of course that it was the Bill of Sir James Graham to which Lord John Russell had before assented and which in my letter to...
I have two members watching the progress of the Registration and Impressment Bills; and I shall leave to the Press to inform you what is passing in publick on that subject with the more Confidence; as I presume the Editors in the U. S. will suffer nothing bearing upon it to escape them. The enclosed Copy of a Letter, I have sent to Lord John Russell, will show the project which I had suggested...
In my Letter of the 4th Inst. there is an Error in transcribing from the shorthand draft: for "disparage" in the 2nd paragraph the Copyist has written "discourage". I may add that I see nothing yet to change my opinion on the Subject referred to, nor in what I apprehended would be the course of the discussions on the question between the U. S. and the french: tho’ I do not perceive in the...
The above is copied from the Times 1 and more in detail than the announcement in the Sunday Times which I have sent you because it contains the substance of the debates in less tedious compass than the daily papers. I shall watch the motions of the bill: if it embrace completely the object of my Letter to Sir James Graham à la bonne heure; if not I shall find the means to suggest amendments....
I find there is an oppy for Letters to reach the Packet of the 16th at Portsmouth. I have therefore had my Notes on the Relations with France transferred from the Shorthand, and cover them herein. If they reach the Coffee House in time, you will get them by the same Ship that takes my Letter of the 16th. I suppose the question of the Speakership is settled, and that by this Ship you will hear...
"There is no knowing who will be Governor till after Election," as they say in New England; and the question who will be Speaker of the H. C. is equally doubtful. In the abstract it is of small import: for as Lenthall said he must have no eyes nor ears but those of the House. But as a trial of the strength of parties I hold it no small matter. The appearance of the day is in favor of the...
I have just rec’d from Mr Scrope, one of the M. Ps for this County, a Pamphlet sent him ex officio. I have made some short hand marginal Notes upon it which I have not time to transcribe, and they would be little worth if I had; but I have ordered one of the Pamphlets to be sent to you from London, where, I suppose, they are by this time on Sale. The short of the Story I take to be this. The...
I received with the greater satisfaction your kind letter of the 8th Ult. as those which it answered had not left England many days before I learnt by the papers that the state of your health was such as to leave it very problematical whether they would reach you at all; and though subsequent advices announced your convalescence, the accounts were not such as to flatter me with the hope of...
I wrote you on the 4th ⅌ Philadelphia Packet enclosing copy of a letter of ancient date to my Brother, in which I believe the words "to Hamburg" after the words "in the Launch" in the 1st page were omitted by the copyist. There is a panegyric on Lafayette, in the Times of this morning, which I suppose will be transferred to the American Papers, in which the Author expresses his wonder that he...
It would be grateful to me to hear more from you than falls to my lot in these latter days. My last communication was conditional. I enclosed to Gales & Seton, under cover and open to Mr Livingston, a Times newspaper of the 5th. of feby 1833 containing a letter signed Senex, which I had sent to the Editor some 14 night before and which he had kept till he could make up his mind to an analogous...
