Mr. William R. Foster, son of a reputable Gentleman who is my near neighbour, and for whom, and for whose Family I take a particular Interest, is desirous to serve in the Navy. I have reason to think favorably of Mr. W. R. Foster’s Reputation; and can have no doubt, should he enter into the navy, that he will serve with credit to himself, and advantage of the Public. I have abstained from...
I had the honour to write to you on the 15. of last month, since when I have received by General Miranda who has arrived here, a letter from Mr. N. Vansittart⟨,⟩; a member of the British parliament, and who was likewise a member of the late Administration of Mr. Addington. Mr. Vansittart being a man of distinguished Probity, and in a situation to understand fully the subject on which he...
You will probably recollect that soon after my return from England I communicated to you the Extract of a Letter that I had received and which related to an object respecting which we cannot be in different. For some time past I have heard nothing further on the Subject: A few days since however I received a Letter from the same Person, dated London Aug. 8. the following Extract of which I...
Owing to my absence from NYK. I had not the honour of receiving yr letter of the 13. before yesterday. Although the suspended Items in my a/c are in my judgment equitable charges, yet as they seem not to be included within the List of contingent expenses heretofore allowed, I feel myself duly sensible of the Presidents liberality in the direction which he has authorised to be sent to the...
In answer to your Letter of the 24 inst. I have the honour to state that no engagement was ever made by me that the long Bills of the Proctors shd. be paid. In consequence of an instruction that I gave to the agt. Mr Bayard to require that the proctors Bills shd. be regularly taxed, several of them came to me, to represent what they called the usage on this subject, and to urge me to...
As my mission abroad had no other connexion with the money department of our Govt. than wht. arose from the payment and receipt of my annual appointments, I made it a point carefully not to have the custody, or to become accountable for any money belonging to the public. Hence I have concluded that I have no accounts to settle with the treasury. But as however this department keeps the accts....
I lose no time in replying to the queries contained in your letter of the 18. thoh I fear I may not be in time for the mail of today. Q. 1. All foreign ministers pay the first visit to the ministers of England: immediately after being presented to the King the new foreign minister goes round in his carriage, and leaves a card with his name and Quality at the house of each of the Cabinet...
Herewith I enclose the Letter of the Comee. of the Senate, together with my answer to yr’s of the 4. Should it still be thought inexpedient to ratify the Convn. without farther Explanation I should think there would be no objection on the part of G. Br before the delivery of the Ratifications, to exchange with Mr Monroe a dec[larati]on that the Conn. was concluded without Reference to the...
My correspondence with the Department of State while I was in England, at different periods, had reference to the independence of So. America and whatever seemed to me material in my conversations on this subject either with the Br. Ministers, or with Genl. Miranda and other natives of the Spanish Colonies, was from time to time mentioned in my Despatches. I have lately received two Letters...
As well on account of the State of Affairs between England and France, as at the pressing desire of our minister at Paris, I prolonged my Residence in London from the 20th. of Ap. to the 19th. of may. By the charter party made in my behalf with the owner of the Ship engaged to bring me home, I was bound to pay £560. Sterling for my passage, to have my Effects on board, and be ready to embark...
