Washington Mar. 24. 07
You have done entirely right in detaining mr Cary [Sedi] sungskrit grammar, and saving it the risk of being sent here & back again. I had before recieved mr Carey’s letter, and was holding it up till I could hear of the book. I now inclose the letter for the Philosophical society.
I take this occasion of presenting to the society two volumes on the raising of sheep, & particularly the Merinos, which the author was so kind as to send to me, but which I think will be more useful in the library of the society. perhaps some one may undertake to translate them, if it should be thought useful. Accept my friendly salutations & assurances of esteem & respect.
