I received your favour several days ago, and should have returned you my thanks for it before this time, if my official engagements had not intirely deprived me of an oppy. The Senate will adjourn to day, having finished the business upon which they met. How the questions relative to the Treaty have terminated, I am at present prevented from saying. The Treaty will not be published I beleive...
I now inclose you Bache’s paper in which is contained Extracts of the Treaty with England. They are not correct, but will serve to enable you to form an Idea of this new Compact. I also send you a Copy of the Resolution ratifying the Treaty. You will perceive that this resolution begets difficulties in the way of a complete ratification, which must again bring the whole subject before the...
On my return from Phila: I meditated a trip to the Mountains, and in that event my design was to have paid my respects to you, in Orange—but our autumnal plague (the bilious fever) seized me, and has put an end to all my projects. When I get released from my Complaint, I shall not have more strength, and time, than will be necessary for my domestic arrangements preparatory to the meeting of...
Since our conversation yesterday, I have reexamined the 9th. Article of the british Treaty. If the following remarks should be of any service to you, in considering that subject, they will have answered the purpose for which they were written. Whatever may be the true exposition of that Article, it seems clear, that it cannot extend to give an Alien, being a british subject, a right to acquire...
I beleive I mentioned to you before we parted in Phila: that Mr. Mason and myself intended among other things to communicate to the Legislature at their next Session, the situation of Virga. as to the Territory N. West of the Ohio. In making this communication we may perhaps be the authors of some error. Will you therefore after perusing the following remarks, favour me with such observations...
I suppose you partake in the common solicitude to hear the passing political occurrences of this place, at this time. Accept this effort to satisfy your anxiety. I presume you have seen the President’s Speech, & the Senate’s answer. I now inclose you the answer of the H. of R which was presented yesterday. When I arrived here which was on the 4th. day of the Session an answer had been drafted,...
I hasten to tell you that the Northern Mail of today brings an account of the arrival of a Ship at Boston from London with European intelligence up to the 4th. May. Being Sunday, the post office is not open, but Mr Patten says, as Bache tells me, the papers contain a positive account of a seperate peace between France & the Emperor of Germany—and among other things, that a Mutiny has taken...
Soon after my arrival here, I recd. your favour with several inclosures. The inclosed Letters were delivered, as directed, and I should have acknowledged the receipt of your Letter at an earlier period—but for an indisposition which has kept me very much confined during the whole Winter. As the Weather becomes more mild, and the Climate more like that to which I have been accustomed—my health...
I send you inclosed two papers from which you may form some opinion of the temper prevalent here—but principally to make you acquainted with a fact very interesting to the Southern States. By Fenno’s paper you will discover that some french people, both black and white have arrived in the Delaware from St. Domingo. The true state of this business will be misrepresented in Virga. It stands...
I send you inclosed the amendments made by the H of R to our Sedition Bill —they have been agreed to this day in the Senate—and these Amendments with the parts of our Bill that were retained now form the Sedition Act, which awaits the president’s approbation only, and which it will certainly receive. The principle having obtained, the modifications are of no great moment, because they may be...
