I find by a newspaper just come to hand that the publication of the correspondence ^with Govr T. in between^ 1814 is preceded by that or rather part of that between you & myself. I cannot but regret that my intention in this particular was not rightly understood. My ^hasty^ letter was written under the impression that nothing would go to the press but the original correspondence with Govr.... Continue Reading

The enclosed Letter will explain to you what we wish. The Vice President is apprized that a copy has been sent to you, as you will see. If he has left Washington, you will see the propriety of sending a speedy answer. That answer must be, My Dear Friend, that in the event of the Vice President's insisting, upon it, you will consent to our wishes. In no other event do we urge it. You will see, how...

The enclosed is the paper which was handed to the court & which I have recd. from the Chief Justice, to whom it must be returned in its present form, I have no such affidavit among my papers, & I think it possible that the affidavit was never taken but was supplyed by that of you & Mr <Willms>. Mr Prevost had better swear to one now of similar import & offer it to the court... Continue Reading

B By Mr McNeil, Jan'y 13, 1820. In assembly. Whereas the inhibiting the further extension of slavery in these United States, is a subject of deep concern among the people of this state: And whereas we consider slavery as an evil much to be deplored, and that every constitutional barrier should be interposed to prevent its further extension; and that the constitution of the United States clearly...

We have examined a map of the state of New-York, including the upper part of the state of Pennsylvania, published by Mr. AMOS LAY, and it appears to us to be accurate, and to contain all the counties up to this time correctly designated, and to be well worthy of public patronage.

By the time this reaches you, Mr. C's "short session" will probably have closed, and you be left in the quiet enjoyment of some repose, after the labor and exertion to which you have been subjected in exposing the base practices of a corrupt combination against the Republicanism of the State. The assembly Report, has injured Clinton essentially with us—the matter, the manner &c to palpably... Continue Reading

I have received by this days mail your letter of the 7th. Inst. but hardly ^know^ where to address you. You do not state at any place, and was it not for the apology you make for your indisposition I should hardly know how to account for your omission to let me know where you are. I have heard you was in New York. But the post mark ^of your letter^ is Philadelphia. And the only way I can account... Continue Reading

I have waited a few days to answer your letter in the hope that I might be able to say something more than general declarations of friendship and a strong desire to serve you <illegible> to but I have waited in vain, I do not know at this moment of any precise manner in which I we could serve you if you were on the spot. I should however be disappointed if in the course of a short time it... Continue Reading

Last week I spent entirely in reconnoitering the County of Oswego, from one end to the other. Matters continue to wear a very favourable aspect in every part of the County. The Republican interest has gained a great deal of strength since last Election; and is still continuing to gain. It is perfectly safe to say that the vice president will get more votes in that County than ever he did before.... Continue Reading

Your last Draft for $125 was yesterday presented to me & I was under the necessity of giving my note for it payable at the Bank in sixty days which I hope you will not fail to take up.

I insist upon it now that you suffer the circumstance to give you no pain but only to understand that... Continue Reading

I have concluded to trouble you once more about my business with my brother William. I am sorry to be under the necessity of doing this, as I know you have as much business of your own as you can attend to, but there is no other person who can assist me so effectually as you can; and you may rely upon it, that if ever an opportunity occurs, I will return the of favor. I understand that my brother... Continue Reading
