Altho I know the news papers I now send must have lost much of what might have been more interesting previous to the reform bill being known to have become law, yet I thought I might as well send them for the chance of their being amusing. Our friend Doctor Dunglison has told me that now and then, you used to send him the papers received from me: and if, after perusal, there be no other friend...
It is indeed with real concern that we have so frequently heard of your being harrassed with rheumatism; I do nevertheless hope for a more favorable report, which will be highly gratifying to my daughter and myself. This has been a winter of stronger extremes than I have experienced the last forty five years: the Thermometer having, on two occasions, been at and under Zero: and on two others,...
We much regret your being prevented coming here by indisposition, but hope for the pleasure of soon hearing of your amendment. My Son Rutson having a particular desire to pay his respects to that antient friend of his father whose name is so familiar to him, is the occasion of this. My daughter joins me in cordial salutations and best wishes to you, Mrs Madison and Mr Tod. Yours most sincerely...
I thank you for your kind letter of 29 April, which reached me at Newyork. This place is the residence of my only remaining sister, who is married to a Mr Herndon. I have been here a week; and, perhaps may remain a week or ten days longer; after which it is my intention to go on to my son’s near Charlottesville; but Montpellier being so much on the way, I must avail of your kind invitation as...
Indeed I rather considered an apology due from me to you than the reverse. Your kind letter of the 10 Decr reached me on the 28 of last month, long previous to which I had the satisfaction to know you had so far recovered your health as to attend the laborious tasks assigned you at Richmond, in the ultimate result of which you succeeded beyond the expectations of many in this country. I...
I am much obliged by your kind attention to the affair of my antient correspondent Mr John Walker, and have ordered the Money to be paid to his son, which enables me to remove from my old books a balance that had so long been an Eye-sore . Of late years I notice every now & then a similarity of weather in the two countries at the same seasons of the year; and so it appears to have been the...
I am much obliged by your letters of the 5 April & 13 May, as I also am for your remarks on Tobacco, cotton & Manufactures. As to the first of these I cannot help thinking the time not distant when the Tobo planter will have to decide whether it will be better to grow it for a price inadequate almost to any remuneration or not at all. The Tariff seems to have been viewed on this side as...
Before committing myself as I did in my letter of the 29 of January, I ought to have been better informed than I now find I had been, when I wrote it. And must correct as soon as I can a mis-statement, lest you, under the sanction of perhaps, the oldest Tobacco merchant in Europe , should quote him: therefore, instead of "for the purpose of imparting flavor to their flavorless Trash" be so...
On the 24th of February I acknowledged your good letter of the 25th of the preceding November, with a promise to say more to it in my next, which has been put off until now, and, probably, might have gone on even further, but for my friend Mr James Hagerty calling this morning to request an introduction to you. He is returning, for a while, to his native Land and intends taking [+] Monticello...
I am much indebted for your very acceptable letter of the 25 Novr, but cannot have the pleasure of answering it farther at this juncture. With this are four Liverpool Mercuries: in two of them are remarks on Negro Slavery in Virginia. In the two others, signed Virginian, the correctness of those remarks is disputed. I request to know if Virginian be right in what he states of the early...
