In several of the public Gazettes I had read your note to the Editor of the Philadelphia Gazette, with an extract of a letter addressed to me of the 8th instant; but it was not until yesterday, that the letter itself was received. It is not difficult, from the tenor of that letter, to perceive what your objects are; but that you may have no cause to complain of the withholding any paper...
I have lately received three letters from you: two bearing date the 15th instant; the other the 21st. One of the former came to hand the 19th, the other the 21st —and the latter yesterday. Your signature as Secretary of State to the ratification of the Treaty having been given on the 14th of August —and your resignation not taking place until the 19th it became necessary, in order to be...
Agreeably to your request & my promise, and as soon as it has been in my power, I send you a copy of Mr Fauchet’s letter No. 10 to the “commissaire du départment des relations extêrieures.” LB , DLC:GW . For Randolph’s request and GW’s promise, see Randolph to GW, 19 Aug. (first letter), and GW to Randolph, 20 August. For discussion of then-French minister Jean-Antoine-Joseph Fauchet’s letter,...
Your resignation of the Office of State, is received. Candour induces me to give you, in a few words, the following narrative of facts. The letter from Mr Fauchet, with the contents of which you were made acquainted yesterday, was as you supposed, an interscepted one. It was sent by Lord Grenville to Mr Hammond; by him put into the hands of the Secretary of the Treasury; by him shewn to the...
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...
No mail, at two oclock yesterday, had been received in Alexandria from Philadelphia since the 29th Ulto. I am sending up this afternoon to see if the expected mail of this day is in; altho’ I have little hope of it, as the violence, & continuance of the rains since thursday last, has been such, in these parts, as to sweep every thing before it; & to do great damage to the gathered & growing...
On Wednesday evening, I sent the packet, now under cover with this, to the Post Office in Alexandria; to be forwarded next morning at the usual hour (4 oclock) by the Baltimore mail; but behold! when my letter bag was brought back from the Office and emptied I not only got those which were addressed to me among which yrs of the 27th was one, but those also wch I had Sent up the evening before....
The contents of your letters of the 21 & 24th instt wch I recd by Monday’s Post —the importance of some of their enclosures; and the perturbed state of Mens minds, respecting the late treaty with G. Britain, togethr with the proceedings in some of the principal Towns to embarrass the business have determined me to repair to the Seat of government if I hear nothing from you between this &...
Your private letters of the 24th & 25th instant have been received, and you will learn by the official letter of this date, my determination of returning to Philadelphia after Monday, if nothing in the interem casts up, to render it unnecessary. I am excited to this resolution by the violent, and extraordinary proceedings which have, and are about taking place, in the Northern parts of the...
My letters for the Post office in Alexandria, had been sent off some hours before the enclosed dispatches were put into my hands, by the young Gentleman whose name is mentioned in Govr Clintons letter to me, also forwarded. Not willing to lose a Post day, I hasten to send the resolutions above alluded to, late as it is, to Alexandria; to go on tomorrow— with a request similar to the one made...
My letter from Baltimore, and the one written by Friday’s Post, dated the 22d instt renders it in a manner, unnecessary for me to add more on the score of the treaty with G. Britain, or on the movements which are taking place thereupon, in different parts than to inform you, that if circumstances should make it more eligable for me to repair to Philadelphia, than for you to come to this place,...
Both your letters, dated the 17th instt, found me at this place, where I arrived on Monday. The letter from the Commissioners to you, I return; as I also do the Gazettes of Pittsburgh & Boston. The proceedings at the latter place are of a very unpleasant nature: the result I forwarded to you from Baltimore, accompanied with a few hasty lines written at the moment I was departing from thence;...
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...
I have given the correspondence between you and Mr Van Berckel respecting the suspension of the Dutch Consul Heineken, and the request to have ⟨his⟩ exequatur withdrawn, my consideration.

Your letter of the 22d instt I received yesterday morning.

For the reasons mentioned to you the other day—viz.—the Virginia Assembly being in Session—and a plan being on foot for establishing a Seminary of learning upon an extensive scale in the Federal city —it would oblige me if you and Mr Madison would endeavor to mature the measures which will be proper for me to pursue in order to bring my designs into view, as soon as you can make it convenient...

When I wrote to you yesterday, I did not expect to be in this village at this hour. But finding it difficult to get even part of the Troops off, that were ordered to March yesterday, I resolved to see the residue in motion to day before I left this place, myself. This dilatoriness does not proceed from any disinclination in the Troops themselves, to proceed; but for want of arrangement, and...
Yesterday at 11 Oclock your dispatches of the 7th were delivered to me in less than 23 hours from the rect of them by the Express in Philadelphia. Little, of moment, has occurred since mine of the 6th.

Your private letter of the 3d instt; accompanying the public dispatches, was received yesterday; & I rejoice exceedingly that the apprehensions on acct of the yellow fever have vanished.
