I inclose herewith the only printed addition which has been made to the sheets of the Journal forwarded by Mr. Hopkins. The bill imposing duties on imports having been published in all the Newspapers as it finally passed both houses I do not inclose it. The bill imposing duties on tonnage has since become a law in the hands of the President, but is not yet in print. The clauses discriminating...
My last inclosed a continuation of the printed Journals of the H. of Reps. I now add two sheets more. They are no otherwise valuable than as they serve to make up an entire sett. The commercial bills are at lengths off our hands. They have been so long delayed that an interregnum of a day or two will take place even in this & the adjacent ports, and an inconvenient one in the distant ports....
I can not at so late a day acknowledge your two favors of without an explanation which I am sure your goodness will accept as an apology. Having brought with me to this place a very feeble state of health, and finding the mass of business in the Department, at all times considerable, swelled to an unusual size by sundry temporary causes, it became absolutely necessary to devote the whole of my...
25 January 1802. In response to letter from Nicholas [not found], makes an agreement with him subject to conditions about the use of his name. RC ( ViU ). 1 p. Fragment. Left half of page is torn away. Addressee not indicated, but Nicholas’s docket is on verso. The precise details of the agreement are unclear, but it would seem that JM agreed to advance Nicholas the sum of $4,500 for sixty...
I did not receive your favor of the 11th. instant till a few days ago; and I have till now been too much indisposed to acknowlege it. You are not mistaken in viewing the conduct of the Eastern States as the source of our greatest difficulties in carrying on the war; as it certainly is the greatest, if not the sole inducement with the Enemy to persevere in it. The greater part of the people in...
I have recd yours of the 28th. Ult. The wishes of your son & of yourself, that he might be appd. to the Consulate at Leghorn had been previously made known to me; and I should have taken sincere pleasure in doing what depends on me for giving effect to them, had the way been sufficiently open; being well persuaded that your son merits all the confidence which is claimed for him. Mr. Appleton...
The idea I meant to express yesterday was "to repeal the embargo no matter how soon, as to all countries except G. B. & France, and to add a Non-intercourse at as short a day as may be consistent with notice &c as to them only," and to arm or not in defence of the trade so to be authorized, as the sense of Congs. might be found to require; preferring however, under present impressions, the not...
That the President ought to be authorized, in case either of the France or G. Britain shall so revoke or modify her Edicts as that they shall cease to violate the neutral Commerce of the U. S. to declare, by Proclamation a reasonable day, after which the trade of the U. S. suspended by the several Embargo laws, shall be resumed with the said nation: so doing and to cause to be issued, under...
On the receipt of your letter, I made enquiry of Mr. Latrobe concerning the young French Engineer to whom Commodore Decatur referred; and found that he had returned to France. He is the Mr. Surville named in the inclosed communication from Mr. Latrobe . This paper grew out of the conversation I had with him on the occasion; and will I hope aid your efforts in carrying advantagiously into...
The inclosed has just been handed to me from Mr. Latrobe. You will say to him what you think proper on the subject. Accept my esteem & friendly respects Vi .
