§ To Thomas Newton Jr. 2 January 1806, Department of State. “Mr. Madison presents his complts. to Mr. Newton and returns Mr. Morgan’s letter. If this gentleman will make out his account for the Seamen brought home, and transmit it with proof of their being citizens and that they were landed in the U. States, such allowance will be made him as is reasonable and warranted by law.” RC ( NjP :...
I have recd your favor of the 5th. instant, and inclose as it requests a remittance of 56 Dolrs. the cost of the Cyder furnished by Col. Cocke. The excellence of the sample, makes me desirous of being recollected on the subject, as soon as the next crop will bear a shipment. If it be convenient to Col. Cocke to spare 14 or 15 Bbles, I shall be glad to take that quantity, and thank you for...
I this day recd your favor inclosing the deposition of the impressed Seaman. Being on the point of setting out for my farm, I had just time to state the case to Mr Thornton, whose interposition I hope will not be declined, nor be ineffectual in procuring the discharge of the seaman detained on board the Boston. Capt. Douglas has been represented as a […] officer & respectable man; but his...
The Proclamation by the President, of which a copy is inclosed, will inform you, that in pursuance of his authority to convene Congress on extraordinary occasions, he has appointed Monday the 17th day of October next for the meeting of the Senators and Representatives of the United States.

Th: Jefferson asks the favor of mr Newton to order, for him, 4. barrels of the Hughes’s crab cyder which was the subject of their yesterday’s conversation, to be forwarded to Richmond to the address of messrs. Gibson & Jefferson of that place. the risk of being adulterated by the batteau-men, in going up from Richmond renders it worth while to put each barrel into an outer one, which he will...
Knowing nothing of what the Dismal Swamp Compy are doing, or mean to do with their property in that place, & having an offer for my share therein, I would take it kind of you to let me know by the first post after you receive this Letter, what you think it is worth by the acre—or in other words, the highest price any of the companies Lands have, or ought to sell for in that way, allowing a...
I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter to the President of the United States, communicating the collection of a sum of money for the relief of our Captive brethren in Algiers. The sensibility, displayed by those, who have contributed, is intitled to great respect. But notwithstanding the interest, which the President takes in the fate and happiness of our suffering fellow citizens, he...
I am sorry it is not in my power to give you such precise information relative to the subject of your Letter to me of the 9th instant as may be satisfactory to yourself, or serviceable to the object mentioned in it. I do not recollect ever to have seen the Will of the Revd Mr Green, so that I can say nothing from that; but I remember it was impressed on my mind that the woman Sarah, of whom...
I was in the moment of my departure from Philadelphia for Virginia when I recieved your favor enquiring how far the law of nations is to govern in proceedings respecting foreign Consuls. The law of nations does not of itself extend to Consuls at all. They are not of the diplomatic class of characters to which alone that law extends of right. Convention indeed may give it to them, and sometimes...
Thine of the 26th. of last Mo. I received & set about with much chearfulness to comply with thy request, but thou’l be perhaps surprised at hearing that most of the people in these parts have got into such a spirit of Jealousy that they suspect some design unfavorable to them in every thing that is attempted of a public nature. “What are they going to Tax our Cloath too” was the reply of...
I Recd. yours dated the 25th July the 10th Instant together with sum Advertisements; I have fixed two Auxiliary officers in Northampton & two in Accomack above my house & one at My house, so that I beleve that the Destilaries are all within ten miles of an office except a few at Marenty Bay; I have informed my self Respecting the Manufactries as well as the length of time would allow. 45000...

Your letter of the 24th of October, containing an estimate of the cost of a Light-house which was to have been erected on Cape Henry—a draft of the same—and an account of materials placed upon the spot for the purpose of building, has been duly received; and I beg you to accept my thanks for your trouble in preparing & forwarding them—I am, Sir, Your most Obedt Servt Df , in the writing of...
A variety of avocations has prevented my giving an earlier acknowledgment to your letter of the 17th of July. I will now thank you, Sir, to furnish me with an Acct of the quantity & cost of the materials which have been placed on Cape Henry by the Commissioners appointed by the Assembly of Virginia, for the purpose of building a Light-house—as you have been so obliging as to offer to do it. I...
Your letters of the 14th & 19 Ulto came duly to hand, as did the sample of Shingles by Captn Slacum. I did not conceive that under the present dearth of Cash that the price of this article would have been so high as you mentioned. Capt. Slacum, with whom I have conversed on this subject, thinks as you do, that Juniper Shingles would answer my purpose as well as any other would—and suggested...
I am in want of a quantity of good eighteen Inch shingles and am informed that they will come better & cheaper from Norfolk than from the Eastern shore. Be so good, therefore, as to advise me by the first Post after you shall have received this letter if I can be supplied with 100,000 from the former. In what time—and at what price; delivered at my landing distinguishing between what is called...
It is now two or three months since I requested, in very explicit terms, that if my flour was not then sold, that it might be disposed of for what ever it would fetch, & the money remitted to me by Doctr Stuart who was then attending the Assembly, or some other safe conveyance. As I have heard nothing from you since, it is probable the letter may have miscarried—I therefore beg that no further...
Inclosed is a duplicate of my letter to you of the 26th of May which was forwarded by Peter Kirwins who received fifty barrels of superfine Flour to be deliver’d to you at Norfolk. It is now almost three months since the flour was sent: as I have not heard from you, and am unacquainted with Mr Kirwin, I do not know whether it has come to your hands or not. If you have received it, & it is...
Inclosed you have Peter Kerwins receipt for fifty barrels of super fine flour, which I beg you to sell to the best advantage, and remit what may be due to me, after deducting what I am owing to you. Twenty four of these fifty barrels are inspected; the others, tho’ of equal quality, are not. The reason is, the bearer calling unexpectedly, & being in a hurry, would not allow time to get the...
I have been favored with your letters of the 20th of Jany—24th of Feby & 13th of March—the last of which speaks of a letter written by you to me of the same date—this letter has never got to hand: but I have received in Alexandria the £60—which Messrs Pennock & Skipwith promised to remit me on your accot—as also the Wine from Captn Earle, in very good order. My situation, since my retreat from...
Letter not found: to Thomas Newton, Jr., 18 Dec. 1785. It was advertised by Parke-Bernet Galleries in its second sale of the contents of John Grebbel’s library, 22–24 Jan. 1941, as “about 65 words.” The letter, quoted in the Carnegie Book Shop catalog no. 193, reads: “I should be glad if it was paid to Doctr David Stuart, a Delegate in Assembly at Richmond from this County and who I am sure...
I am now about to inform you of the reason why I have suffered your letter of the 27th of April, with its enclosures, to remain so long unacknowledged. In an absence of almost nine years from home, my private concerns had got so much deranged, and my accounts & papers, by the frequent hasty removal of the latter to get them out of the reach of the enemy when their shipping appeared, had got...
Mr. Rowland comes down on a Business of very great and pressing Importance which he will communicate to you.

I am, &c., FC ( Vi ).

Please to dispose of it to the best advantage, for my interest, on credit not ecceeding October. I was obliged to buy in the Anne & Elizabeth myself at the price of £175 which is thirty odd, short of what it stands me—Will this Vessel, do you think, sell at...
Inclosed you have Invoice of 26 Barrl of Biscuit stuff; which, with 35 Sent off before I came home, will be more than sufficient I conceive to mix with the midlings for Bread; if so, please to dispose of the overplus for, and on my acct, as also of the Bread when Baked, and send me an Acct of the proceeds, with the Cash, if any proper oppertunity offers to Alexandria to the care of Messrs Robt...
