PART I FROM THE RUSSIAN OFFER OF MEDIATION TO THE CONCLUSION OF THE TREATY OF GHENT

MARCH 1813 -- JANUARY 1815

MARCH 12, 1813 The Russian Minister Count Dashkoff offered mediation, on the part of the Emperor Alexander, to the Secretary of State. Father thinks this very important and of great weight.

MARCH 14 The President has decided to send a Commission to Russia without delay and has requested father to go. He feels that it is his duty. Father rarely talks to anybody now, his mind seems fully occupied with the grave situation. I think I am the only person he confides in. He has decided to take me with him as his Private Secretary.

MARCH 17 Mr. Madison told father to-day that there was nobody compared to him as a negotiator. It has pleased him greatly. Mr. Bayard and J. Q. Adams, our Minister at St. Petersburg, form the Commission.

APRIL 21 We sail on May 9.
