Mr. Adams had In settling hts own
etwnte- and ilirecling the aUowancesrto
" bimself, I know not.- -Certain it is, that
the Secretary of State is the chief agent
in making all exmnrdinarf allowances to
foreign Ministers, Mr. Adams was Secre
tary of State from 18 If to J p25, and his
. accounts must have been settled after his
return borne. He st least did not object
to the extravagant allowances made to
him, some of them for services and jour
neys not performed, for he pocketed the
money..
. I have now eiven ymi all the informs
"tfbnl can collect from 'the public doeu
-tnents upon the subject of your inquiry.
-' You may" rely upon - it as accurate in the
manner ane to tht exient that l have sta
led...,: '- .
.,. f cinnot forbear to-mention that io thi
fnvestigitinn 1 have met with a key to the
feelings which dictated the letter of Mr.
: Adams la Levitt Harris, in which he pro
nounces our Government rrAe end fienit
rfou$ Con gress bad refused to allow him
. TuIT'Mtfit "of 9000 dollars.- In letter
tohia from Mjr.Miwroatbi Secretary of
Mate, dated June 23d, IB I5. he is inform
ttfbflWl'fiCl linhcfollowmK words -
- M it is necessary to apprize you, that.
altiuri full outfit was transmitted by the
Neptune, and intended to be allowed you
by the executive as a member of the ex
tra mission at St, Peterkburp, yet the
Legislature, on a reference of the subject
to them for an appropriation, decided the
principle, bv the amount appropriated and
the discussion which took place st the
time, tht an outfit only could be allowed
to a Minister under circumstances appli
cable to your case. In your drafts on the
bankers and in your future accounts, you
will be pleased to keep this deduction in
view."
But the minister had the money, and
although the Government wns almost
bankrupt, the army mked and starving,
and the enemy, relieved fiom war in Ku
rope, was preparing to carry fire and
sword through our country, and did soon
after take this city, and burn the public
buildings, he had no conception of rclin
quishing his hold upon the cash he had
received. To Mr. "Monroe's letter he re
turned an answer dted Ghent, 23d Au
gust, 1114, characterized bv a tone and
temper ill becoming a representative ol
his country in that day of her greatest
want ard petil. Among other things of
a like character, he says:

eoiifd be fic) other than a prinrtple to rofi-
catr without any alleged offence, not half

my individual property."
II I hud more time I would give the
whole letter, from Which you WuulcJ not

more of filling his own pockete at that
period", inn U ciiJ ? the.wnU of las
