I have received your letter of the 12th. instant enclosing an address to the President respecting the Official conduct of the Collector of Savannah, which I have handed to its address. I take this occasion to acknowledge the receipt of a late letter from you on the same subject. I am &c. DNA : RG 59—DL—Domestic Letters.
I have received your letter of the 18th. Ult. There can be little doubt, that the first claim you state is of the general nature of those which are recoverable under the late Convention with France. Should you be able to prove that your original documents have been accidentally destroyed, the Commissioners and other functionaries who are to decide these claims will doubtless admit you to prove...
Your favor of the 7th. inst. has been duly received. Having occasion this day to order the shipment of some tobacco from Richmond (where nothing can be sold for cash) to Mr. Lownes of Philadelphia, for other purposes, I enable him on receipt of it to pay you the balance mentioned in your letter, for which and all other friendly attentions accept my renewed thanks. Among the recollections which...
Th: Jefferson presents his friendly respects to Mr. Ross: the sum which he finds his money-provisions fall short is about 450. Dollars; with which if Mr. Ross can have him furnished, he incloses him a substitution in due form to receive 390.62 at the bank of the US. on the 1st. day of April, and he will remit the balance at an earlier period. He considers himself as much indebted to Mr. Ross...
I sincerely congratulate you on your resurrection. On the faith of the newspapers I really lamented you dead for several days. I hope Mrs. Ross and all your family have enjoyed good health during the afflictions of the city. Not knowing what date was inserted in my note for the 100.D. you were so kind as to give me for it, nor where to seek the note, as nobody has come to seek me about it, I...
As all the world is flying, I think to fly too in two or three days. But I am money-bound . I shall have 215. dollars free out of monies to be recieved for me at the Treasury between two and three weeks hence. But, to pay some matters to people in want, and to carry me home also, I have occasion for 100. Doll. more. Having never had any money connection at Philadelphia, I take the liberty of...
I have before me your favor of the 11th instant and am sorry I can make no reply that will give you satisfaction. The partners of the late firm of Daniel Parker & Co have not yet exhibited their accounts in such a manner as to render a close of them practicable. Nor have I now, any more than I always have had, the least expectation that this object will ever be accomplished. If the...
The inclosed extracts from a report I am preparing for Congress, and composing a general statement of our commerce, I have formed from such notes and knowlege as I have gathered up thro’ life. But I cannot confide in them myself without submitting them to the correction of those who are acquainted with the subject practically. Will you do me the favor to go over them with attention, fact by...
Copy: Library of Congress I received your favour of the 11th. with the Accounts, Bill of Lading &c. of the Goods you have Shipped. If you remember right I promis’d only to assist you in the freight, but you have drawn upon for almost an equal Sum over and above, on Account of Charges, Commissions &c. These kind of Encroachements are disagreable, as well as inconvenient. I have however accepted...
Copy: Library of Congress I received yesterday your favour of the 23d. proposing a Ship to be freighted for our Goods. I some time since put that Business into the Hands of M. Williams, who has agreed for a Ship accordingly, that is large enough to take all we have to send. He will inform you of the Particulars. I am nevertheless thankful to you for your Obliging Attention to this important...
