At Philadelphia in the moment of my departure from it on the 18th of last month, I had the honor to receive (by the Convention, Captn Workman) your favors of the 30th of Jany & 15th of March; & I recollect to have received about three years ago, by the hands, if I remember right, of a Mr Collins, a short introductory letter of that Gentleman from you. If you have favored me with others, I have...
I regret very much that your letters of the 2d & 13th of October should have been detained from me until this time. The last Post only, from Richmond, brought them to me. If you should have fulfilled your intention of embarking at the early period proposed in the first of the above letters—and I hope no untoward accident will have happened to prevent it—this answer will come too late, and my...
I have just received the Letter you did me the honour to write me, on the 16 of this Month. The Editors of News papers find that nothing contributes more to the Sale of their Merchandize than paragraphs respecting Dr Franklin. at one time they put him to death by sickness on his passage; at another they Send him captive to Algiers: & then they wreck him on the coast of Madeira: & any Such...
Since I had the honor of writing to you on the 20th of March, which was done in haste (having but little notice of Capt: Boyle’s intended departure, before the time appointed for his sailing—& then to send my dispatches to Richmond 125 miles)—I have been favored with your letters of the 3d of March, 25th of May, & 23d of July. The first was forwarded to me by Captn Bibby, whom I have not yet...
Having had cause, lately, to apprehend a miscarriage of the letter of which the inclosed is a duplicate, I do myself the honor of forwarding this copy, as the best apology I can make for a silence that might, otherwise, be ascribed to motives of inattention; wch would give me pain; as I have pleasure in your corrispondence, and would wish to keep up a friendly intercourse with you by letter....
I cannot omit so good an opportunity as Mr Wallace affords, of addressing a few lines to you; altho’ from the barrenness of the times I have little to say. Our Country is, at present, in peace; and measures are pursuing to give adequate powers to Congress to form such a commercial system as shall pervade, equally, every branch of the Union; without which we are unable to meet European powers...
I shall not wonder if you should be surprized at my not acknowledging the receipt of your esteemed favor of the 12th of last August at an earlier period. Immediately after it came to my hands—not knowing what you had written to Doct. Franklin or to Mr Jay, or what steps might have been taken on the subject matter thereof by either or both of those Gentlemen I wrote to the former for...
Not till Within these few days have I been honoured with your favours of the 13th and 25th of November last I should if they had come to hand sooner been earlier in my acknowledgment of them. I sincerely wish that this letter may find Miss Newenham in a perfectly recovered State of health, and Lady Newenham and yourself relieved from those anxious cares and sollicitudes which her indisposition...
I have reed your letters of the 9th of Decr 1786—27th of Feby and 2d of march 1787. They should have had an earlier & more regular acknowledgment had not the publick business in which I was, in a manner, compeled to engage the last summer, joined to the unremitting attention which my own private affairs require rendered it almost impossible to observe that punctuallity with my correspondents...
I have been favoured with your letter of the 10th of Augt and am very sorry to find by it, that your intended voyage to this Country was prevented, and especially after you had made your arrangements and was upon the point of Sailing. The cause of your detention must have made it still more displeasing to you, for, of all the vexations in life, that of a tedious & perplexing Law-suit is the...
