I am to acknoledge the receipt of your letter, and to scribble a line in answer, being just in the moment of setting out on my journey. The situation of your island is truly hard, and I should think deserves a relaxation of our terms if I may trust my first thoughts on the subject. I also think it probable it might be mutually beneficial to us. Should I continue of that opinion I will...
As to an undoubted zeal for the cause of the American states you have always added a proper disposition to aid the island of Bermudas in her distresses, we have cast our eyes on you as a proper person to communicate to them what we are authorized to do by a recommendation from Congress and resolution of our assembly . For this purpose I take the liberty of inclosing to you three copies of a...
The bearer hereof, Mr. Edwards, son of the Senator of that name from Kentuckey, goes to Williamsburg for the benefit of your law school. He is a young gentleman of good understanding, considerable reading, and great thirst after knowlege. As such permit me to recommend him to your notice and patronage, and to your aid in the article of books which generally forms a difficulty with young men...
Your favor of June 14 came to hand some time ago, and nothing but a load of business has prevented my sooner acknoleging it. No person on earth heard with more sincere regret the tales which were the subject of it, no body lamented more the torture thro’ which their victim must have passed. For myself, when placed under the necessity of deciding in a case where on one hand is a young and...
I this instant recieve by Mr. Randolph your son in law your favor of the 11th. inst. Had I known the situation you mention I should have taken the liberty, without waiting for authority, to have given him any counsel which his pursuits would have required. I should continue to do it now, with greater confidence, were I to remain here, but I retire from my office the last day of this month, and...
Come and take your nap with us to-night. I have not the pleasure of being acquainted with Mr. Carrington but if he will accompany you, I shall therefore be the more obliged to him. It will relieve you from the heats and drunken noise of Charlottesville and you will return in better tone to the functions of justice in the morning and more philanthropically disposed to gloss over the follies...
Your favor of the 24th Ulto, from Winchester, came duly to hand; but presuming you were on a Circuit, I have allowed time for the completion, to offer you my acknowledgment of its receipt. My Sollicitude for the establishment of a National University in this Country, has been great, and unceasing; but as the sentiments of the Legislature have not been in unison therewith, I had postponed the...
I have to acknolege the receipt of your two favors of the 2d. and 22d. inst. and to thank you for the pamphlet covered by the former. You know my subscription to it’s doctrines, and as to the mode of emancipation, I am satisfied that that must be a matter of compromise between the passions the prejudices, and the real difficulties which will each have their weight in that operation. Perhaps...
I am much obliged by your friendly letter of the 2d. inst. and your attention to mr Martin’s libels on the subject of Logan, the first only of which I have ever read: for when I found by his stile that truth was not his object, but to gratify party passions, I determined to read no more, but to make proper enquiries into the fact he questioned, & in due time publish it. I turned to the papers...
