Abstract:

As Secretary of State, Monroe writes about an exchange of prisoners, exiled loyalists, claims concerning a captured American ship, state of relations with England, privateers, restrictions on travel by enemy aliens, James Gallatin's passport, and diplomatic affairs. He forwards copies of laws; appoints Anthony Morris a private agent of the U.S. at Cadiz and authorizes him to withdraw $4,000 from a bank; offers to sell land in Loudoun County, Va.; commends J.B. Benabea on his behavior in the U.S.; and defends his actions in opposing James Madison for the 1808 presidency. Also, includes a draft of his newspaper essay on 1816 presidential candidates.

Correspondents write about Philip Mazzai in France, about Luis Onís, an epidemic in Richmond, Va., filibusters, shortage of troops on the Canadian border, the War of 1812, army appointments, appointment as consul at Algiers, cabinet members, appointment of George Erving as minister to Spain, national bank, French and Spanish ministers, and the sale of Monroe's land in Ohio. They urge Monroe to ignore criticisms of his appointment, urge accommodations with England; and recommend John Littlejohn for an appointment. Matthew Lyon seeks a federal appointment from Armistead Mason.

Sylvanus Bourne writes to James Madison about reestablishing relations between the U.S. and the Netherlands. James Madison offers an appointment as Secretary of War to William Lowndes. Don Ignacio Alvarez writes to James Madison, in Spanish, presenting pistols, 1816.

Correspondents include John B. Warren, David Holmes, Joseph Buson, George Hay, William Short, Onamel Johnston, John Mercer, Henry Dearborn, Anthony Morris, Sylvanus Bourne, James Madison, William H. Crawford, Spencer Roane, Craven Peyton, Richard Rush, Peter Derieux, John Stokely, and William Lowndes.
