I recieved after my return home in July last your obliging letter inclosing an oration pronounced at Jamaica in Long island on the 4th. of July 1796. a singular concurrence of name with one or two other circumstances occasioned me to ascribe it to another gentleman from whom I had parted a few days before only; and to write to him a letter of acknolegement . it was not till I had the pleasure...
According to what passed in conversation between us the other day I inclose you an authority to sell my Ivy creek lands on the terms then stated; that is to say for 1200 pounds paiable one third in hand, a third at the end of a year, & the remaining third at the end of two years; the purchaser giving bond & satisfactory security, or a deed of trust to sell the lands on default of paiment on...

On a strict examination of the act of Assembly on the subject of forcible Entries & Detainer you will find the party claiming the benefitt of that act must make his complaint on oath, stating the ouster & Detention. I think there might be some difficulty made by Scott if the Warrant issued, not on the oath of M r Jefferson but of you r self as his attorney in fact—from a late decision of our...
Your fa letter of Aug. 20. enabled me to turn to mine of Feb. 23. 98. and your former one of Feb. 22. 1801. and to recall to my memory the oration at Jamaica which was the subject of them. I see with pleasure a continuance of the same sound principles in the address to mr Quincy . your quotation from the former paper alludes, as I presume, to the term of office of our Senate ; a term, like...
