I thank you for the honor of your letter of the 3d. I know the worth of Mr. Bayard & should be happy to give the proof of it, but in these cases I can give no encouragement untill all the candidates are before me & their cases weighed. I am much obliged by your information concerning him, which coincides with all the testimonies I have seen & indeed with all that I have observed. Most...
I have received your letter of the first of this month, in answer to mine of the twenty fifth of November—It is not less frank and candid, than prompt and punctual. I have only to remark that you were certainly mistaken when you thought that I “was personlly hostile to you.” Your brother Robert I never saw in my life, nor had any communication with him of any kind while I had any share in...

Copy: Library of Congress I received yours of the 2d. Instant, and am very sorry for your Misfortune: the Loan office Bills you destroyed to prevent their falling into the hands of the Enemy, you do not sufficiently describe; it is necessary for me to know before I can find out whether they have not been already presented the following particulars of each Bill, viz Number, Quantity of Dollars,...
I have had the pleasure of receiving your two letters of the 16th: instant. The circumstances they announce are upon the whole satisfactory. The zeal which has been called forth by the threatened attack upon the magazine at Frederick is in the highest degree commendable and is an earnest of the ultimate reliance which may be placed on the principles of good Order in our Country. As...

Yours of the 5th. has been recieved, and not to keep under suspence the person who has offered the gun-powder, I observe that I have from my first coming into office recommended to the Secretary at War never to buy powder ready made, because it will not keep, but to lay in as great a stock as possible of salt petre and sulphur. he assures me our present stock of these articles are equal to any...
Yours of the 23d. came to hand last night. I am unacquainted with the particular conduct of young Yznardi, but if it has been strongly improper I wish his retirement: because having rejected a midnight nomination there, the person substituted should be above exception. I see but one remedy, which is to make mr Yznardi, the father, Consul. [I am] persuaded he can render us better services than...

Would it not be better to leave out of the Naval militia bill all the passage beginning ‘And in time of war either actual or imminent Etc. and ending ‘shall have the immediate command of them.’ it would be much more likely to pass if confined for the present to harbor defence, and if hereafter there should be a visible necessity of extending the duties of the Naval militia to our ships of war,...

I kept up your letter of the 23d. till the return of Genl. Dearborne enabled us to give to the question of lending arms a serious consideration. we find that both law and expediency draw a line for our guide. in general our magazines are open for troops, militia or others, when they take the field for actual service. besides this a law has expressly permitted loans for training volunteers who...

I am to thank you for your favor of May 24. covering the reply of the Native Virginian born in Pensylvania, which I had not otherwise had notice of. he therein, I observe, confines himself to the charge of a double reciept of the money by me. I send to the Enquirer this day what will pulverise his proofs of that charge, and close my notice of him. I recieved two letters from Baltimore signed...

Your favor of the 7th: came to hand last night. I do not recollect having recieved advice of any books delivered Capt.
