12th March 1829

I cannot apprehend the least danger in your case. To guard against the possibility, I will, however, leave a letter for Mr. Barry, which will guard against the effects of misrepresentation, should it be attempted.

You do not mention, whether you had received an answer to your letter, which I received on my arrival here, and which was answered shortly afterwards. I hope it came safely to hand. I left the Senate yesterday and expect to set out for my residence near Pendleton S. Carolina, in a few days, where I will be happy to hear from you.

We are all distressed at the dangerous illness under which Mr. Monroe now labours; and feel great anxiety about the issue, I have reason to believe, that the efforts so industriously made to alienate him, and Gen' Jackson have failed, and that the General reciprocates his kind feelings. Mrs. C. desires best regards to you & Mrs. G.

I see from your letter you understand thoroughly the game, which is playing in a certain quarter. Had you been here all winter, you could not have described it more accurately. It is, however, not calculated to do those engaged in it any service. I am surprised, that one so artful, as the author, and who occupies so favorable a position for his operations, should so completely fail. His strength, which was never great, has been steadily declining all the session, and he may now be pronounced feeble. I see no cause to fear him, unless of enfeebling the administration by his devious course. To prevent such a result, has been an object of solicitude on the part of my friends. So far from opposing, we may appeal with confidence to the proceedings of both houses to prove, that our support has been more uniform and effective, than any other portion of Congress. It is an object of ambition with us to carry the General through with glory; and while we see with pain every false move, we have never permitted our feelings to be alienated for a moment. Our's is the position of honest and sincere friendship, and for us a perfect contrast to that pursued, in the quarter to which I allude.

The accusation, that the delay and difficulty in the Senate have been owing to my friends is utterly false, as the Journals will prove. In truth, the whole subject of nominations has been on our part in the Senate with great judgment. Not a day has been unnecessarily lost. We had great difficulties to contend with, and could not have taken a different course with equal success.

I was much gratified with the confirmation of Swartout's nomination. I had great fears at one time, but he was finally carried through with honor, and I feel confident he will not disappoint the expectations of his friends. I take interest in Mr. Noah's success, and hope sincerely that he may pass. His nomination will not be acted on for some time. He will not lack active friends in the Senate.

I have just heard from a respectable source, that a book is now writing at Washington under the auspices of Gen! Jackson and to be published when he retires, on the subject of the Seminole affair; in which an attack will be made both on Mr Monroe's character & my own, and in which the affidavit of John Rhea is to form a prominent part. I deem it important to apprise you of the fact, that it is believed at Washington, that such a work is in progress.

I had no doubt that any effort, that baseness & ingenuity can devise will be resorted to induce you, by them, who believe that all are venial & base like themselves, to abandon the defense of Mr Monroe, but I feel perfectly confident without the slightest effect. Gen Jackson feels deeply mortified with the situation he occupies in relation to the affair; and is determined that nothing shall be omitted to reverse it, if possible in the eyes of posterity. As to myself individually I certainly can have no objection that he should renew his attack on me in relation to it. He has heretofore gained nothing by his attacks, and I shall take care, if he should renew it, not to let him off as easily as I have in the correspondence.

I would be glad to hear from you, and to learn, whether you have any information as to the supposed contemplated publication, and in particular who is to be the author.

Mrs. C. joins her best respects to yourself & Mrs. G.

Tho' I am not much of a sportsman, I would have been delighted to attend your approaching races had circumstances permitted me to visit New York at this time. But it is quite impossible for me to leave my place in the Senate at this

time. The deposit bill, of which I have had special charge, is now before the Senate, and will not be disposed of till it will be too late for your noble sport. From the account of the competitors, an arduous struggle is anticipated, that I would delight to witness; tho' my sympathy would be such, between friendship on one side, and local attachment on the other, that whatever result fate may decree, would be weighed with a due proportion of pain & pleasure. Anna joins me in thankful acknowledgment for the hospitable invitation of yourself and Mrs. Gouverneur. And, had it been in our power to visit your city, we would have accepted with much pleasure. Yours truly
