I have to thank you for your very inteligent Letter of May 4, and am glad to find one writer who is not in the dismalls. Shades answer very well as a contrast to the light parts of a picture, but when it is all darkness one is apt to suppose that the painture is no artist, that he must be deficient in blending his coulours or too neglegent to procure proper material for them. That our Country...
I inclose to you a memorandum which I received from Mrs Smith, the Receit given you for the Money I have received and will forward in a Letter to mrs Copley but at the same time I wish to know how she is to come at the money lodged in the Bank. perhaps mrs Gray has taken measures for that, but as I feel myself in some degree responsible to mrs Copley I wish when I write to her & state the...
Your obliging favour of April 25 came to hand by Captain Lyde just after my arrival here. The important affairs of Court Etiquette and prepareations for shewing myself at St. James occupied my time so fully that I could not write you as I wished by Captain Dashood who saild soon after. When this great epocha of my Life was past, I had to seek a habitation and to see it put in order for my the...
We yesterday received the Centinal. I thank you for the vindication which I found in it. I well knew how watchfull the Faction would be to lie in wait & catch at every Straw, misrepresenting and abusing every measure which was intended to secure us from foreign influence. the President waited a reasonable time for the answer of the House to his Speech, before he made his nominations to the...
After wishing you many happy and Proserous Returns of the Season and a Speedy mitigation of The Severity of the winter I wish to know whether you have any Letters from my Sons, I have Seen a Short one from Thomas to his mother of the 5th October which Came I Suppose by the vessell from Rotterdam and gave me hopes that more might Come by the Same Oppertunity I Should be Obliged to you if any...
I thank you for your kind Letter. The Elections in Massachusetts have done honour to the Principles and Dispositions of the People. The Error of my old Friend is no surprise to me, for although I knew his the Abhorence of Jarvis in his heart, I have lately seen his Versatility in so many Instances, that his Character, always Subtle fine and and Slippery, is now become lubricated to a degree...
Your favour of march the 21st. with a letter from Col: Hurd came duly to hand. It is a long time that I have had an agreable acquaintance with that gentleman, and the best opinion of his virtues and talents. He cannot have better advocates than his friends Govr: Langdon and Judge Livermore, for any appointment in New Hampshire or Vermont, if that state should be admitted into the union. How is...
I have just recd your favour of the 15, by Mr Coolidge and Mr Parkman. There has been no Vessell up far a s Boston a long time. When there is I will endeavour to Send your fifty Pounds of Clover Seed, with my own, if I can get any. It is said it will be very dear. It is to be lamented that a Man of Such popular Talent and such an ardent Spirit as Dr Jarvis, should be always disposed to Seize...
I received your Letter, before my Departure for Philadelphia, but had not time to answer it. It is not probable that any Special Agents will be employed in the Business you had in contemplation. The Board consists of Men, who will Study Æconomy, in that as well as in all other Affairs committed, to their Charge; and therefore the Loan Officers or Collectors or some other known Character will...
I have recd your favour of 30. Ult.—Thank you for your good Wishes. I know not the reason why the Chroniclers should wish that Mr Jefferson would not accept the office of V.P. The Reason is obvious why the “highest Partisans” on the other Side shd. wish so.—But neither the Jacobins nor Antijacobins, knew the Temper and Character of Mr Jefferson So well as I do. I have known these Seven Years...
