The messenger, who was sent yesterday afternoon to the Post-Office in Alexandria, returned without letters: the Mails not having arrived. Some hours after my Messenger was dispatched for Alexandria, the Richmond production was delivered to me by Express: sent for that purpose. They have out gone all that has gone before them: but the meeting, according to the acct given by the Express, was not...
(Private) Dear Sir, Mount Vernon Sep. 3d 1792. Since my last to you dated the 26th of Augt—I have been favoured with your letter bearing the same date, covering Mr Bordley’s “Sketches on rotations of Crops[.]” Permit me, through you to offer him my sincere thank for this instance (among many others) of his politeness. The subject is interesting and important, and as soon as I have leizure, for...
Your favor of the 11th did not come to my hand till the 24th; and since then, till now, I have been too much indisposed to acknowledge the receipt of it. To what cause to ascribe the detention of the [letter] I know not, as I never omit sending once, and oftener twice a week to the Post Office—In Alexandria. It was the decided intention of the letter I had the honor of writing to your...
At this place, and in the moment I was about to step into my carriage, I was overtaken by an Express bearing the enclosed dispatches. As the application is of an unusual & disagreeable nature; and moreover, is intended, I have no doubt, to place me in an embarrassed situation, from whence an advantage may be taken; I forward it to you with a request, that you, the other two Secretaries and the...
A short time before I came home I received a power of Attorney from the Earl of Tankerville, & his Brother, the Honorable Mr Bennett; authorising Colo. Hooe, (miscalled Howe,)yourself & me, to dispose of property belonging to the latter in this State. Letters, from Lord Tankerville & the Countess his Mother, to me, accompanied the Power, expressive of their wishes that I would accept the...
I learn with pleasure, by your letter of the 26 ultimo, that the person supposed to have been the principal in the murder of the two Indians on pine-creek has been lodged in Lancaster gaol, and that it is very probable all the offenders will soon be apprehended. I cannot avoid expressing my wish that the proceedings, in bringing these persons to justice may be such as will vindicate the laws...
It appears to me necessary, that processes should issue without further delay upon the Indictments found at the last Circuit Court held at York Town in the Commonwealth of Pensylvania, in reference to the laws laying a duty on Spirits distilled within the United States—and proper, that they should be served by the Marshall of the District of Pensylvania, in person. I am to desire that the...
I return herewith the Letters which you sent to me by Express. As soon as you have read that from Mr Bradford to me, you will send it tonight to The Secretary of the Treasury, together with the letter to yourself, for his perusal. I shall be in the City tomorrow morning before 8 o’Clock, at which hour I shall expect to see you; & I request you to notify the Secretary of the Treasy thereof,...
At five oclock this afternoon I reached this place, and shall proceed on in the morning. Mr Adams’ Commission, as Minister Resident to the United Netherlands, was signed, if I recollect rightly, before I left Philadelphia. If his letters of Credence are forwarded to me by the Post, they also shall be signed & returned to you; to supersede the necessity of his waiting for them in case every...
(Private) ⟨My⟩ dear Sir, Philadelphia Decr 24th 1793. It was my wish, for many reasons (needless to enumerate) to have retained Mr Jefferson in the Administration to the end of the present Session of Congress, but he is so decidedly opposed to it that I can no longer hint this desire to him. I now wish for your permission to nominate you to it the Office of Secy of State and will add that your...
