It appears to me material under our present prospects to complete the three frigates without delay. They may be useful with reference to the Algerines—they may be useful to convoy our vessels out of the reach of pickeroon privateers hovering on our Coast. I know you want money but could not the Merchants by secret movements be put in motion to make you a loan. I think something of this kind...
Your Letter of the 20th Instant with its enclosures was brought to Alexandria by the Post of Wednesday. I have no difficulty in deciding on the following appointments, & commissions may issue accordingly. Jonathan Jackson, to be Supervisor of Massachusetts; vice Nathal Gorham, deceased. John Brooks to take the place rendered vacant by the removal of Jona. Jackson—and Samuel Bradford, to be...
If in the opinion of Judges, it is thought best for my India wine to remain undisturbed where it now is, I am content it should remain there. I had, however, directed Mr Kitt (my household Steward) to learn when it would be ready for landing; and to have it brought up, and Stored in my own Cellar; where it would not only have been safe, but would also have remained undisturbed; which may not...
I learn from a Gentleman of character that a prize brought into Boston by a French Privateer is about to be sold. This being in direct breach of our Treaty with G Britain how does it happen? Though no particular law passed, the Treaty being the law of the land, Our custom houses can & ought to prevent the entry & sale of prizes, upon Executive instruction. If any thing is wanting to this end...
I have taken the liberty of putting two letters under cover to you; The one to Colo. Hamilton (in answer to that you forwarded to me) I pray you to put it under your cover, and send it on by the Post. The other for Mr Kitt (my household Steward) I leave open for your perusal, to save a repet it ion of the same sentiments, with respect to the money and Wine. With sincere esteem and regd I...
Your letter of the 28th Ulto with its enclosures, was received by the Mail on friday. I wanted no delay in the Commissioning of Mr Jno. Davis, to be Attorney for the District of Massachusetts; if to you, or those who were better acquainted with his professional knowledge (before he embarked in the Comptrollership) than I am, thought them competent to the duties thereof. That an entire Section...
Your private letter (without date) by the last Post, has been received. It is quite agreeable to me, that my Wine should remain in the Store of Messrs Willing & Francis, till I shall have occasion to remove it. There is little doubt, but the insertion in Browns Paper, of my sudden return, was put there to answer some insiduous purpose; for sure I am, nothing ever dropped from me to authorise...
When the letter herewith enclosed, dated the 4th instant was written in answer to yours of the 28th ulto; part of it, as you will perceive, was dictated under the impression of much hesitation & doubt; for I am not fond of rectifying Legislative mistakes by Executive Acts. I determined however to take the Attorney Generals opinion on the case: resolving, if it accorded with those which had...
I have had some conversation with some influential Members of the Bank of New York who are disposed to do all that shall be found possible. But I wish to know without exaggeration the least sum that will be a material relief to you & when & how the payments will be desired. Yrs. ALS , Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford. For an explanation of the contents of this letter, see H to Wolcott,...
I have just received your letter of the 6th. The idea of selling Bank Stock is the worst of all & can only be urged on a plan of private speculation. Acquiescence may tempt the Bank to oppress hereafter for speculation purposes. I have talked to some Directors of the Bank of New York conformably to your first suggestion, respecting the deposit of Stock & it will not be expedient to change...
