Your favor of the 10th instant came duly to hand. It gave me pleasure to find by the contents of it, that your sentiments respecting the comprehensive project of Colo. Trumbull, coincided with those I had expressed to him. A very different state of Politics must obtain in this Country, and more unanimity prevail in our Public councils than is the case at present, ’ere such a measure could be...
Your favour of the 22d Ulto got to my hands yesterday, only. It came safe, and without any apparent marks of violence; but whence the length of its passage, I am unable to inform you. To you, and to your brother Colo. Jno. Trumbull, I feel much indebted for the full, frank, and interesting communication of the political sentiments contained in both your letters. The project of the latter is...

By the Ship Nancy from London, just arrived at Alexandria, I have received four copies of the Prints of the Deaths of Montgomery & Warren (the number of setts I presume I subscribed for)—sent me by your Brother. It is my wish to make him a remittance agreeably to the terms of the Subscription; but having taken no copy of it, and not being able to recollect what is to pay, must be my apology...
An Address, so affectionate, and respectful, carries with it, a dignity and authority, which is the more honorable to me, as it comes from a Legislature, which although not in the habit of interfering in the administration of the general Government, has exhibited an uniform affection, for the National Constitution, and an undeviating respect to the Laws, and constituted authorities. There can...
Before the curtain drops on my political life, which it will do this evening—I expect for ever—I shall acknowledge, although it be in a few hasty lines only; the receipt of your kind & affectionate letter of the 23d of January last. When I add, that according to custom, all the Acts of the Session, except two or three very unimportant Bills, have been presented to me within the last four days,...
(Private) Dear Sir Mount Vernon Oct. 13th 1793 I was duly favoured with your letter of the 2d instt. The calamitous situation of Philadelphia makes it necessary that some previous steps should be taken with respect to the meeting of Congress—But of what kind is a serious question. That the President has Power by the Constitution to Convene Congress in extraordinary cases admits of no doubt,...
I have duly received your letter of the 8th inst. enclosing papers respecting our unfortunate Citizens, Captives in Algiers, and now return them to you with my thanks for your attention in communicating them. In all our attempts to accomodate matters with the Algierines, & to releive our Citizens held in Captivity by them, we have been peculiarly unfortunate. Besides the deaths of Captn Paul...

Nothing of importance has occurred. But in the meantime, I was extremely happy to find that your state was going on so well as to fœderal affairs; and you will permit me to...
