On the 3d inst: I enclosed to you, Bank Notes of various descriptions, amounting to two hundred and ninety dollars, accompanied by a letter of advice as to the disposal of the money. I hope you will receive it and apply it as requested. I have, since I left your City, been leading a desultory, or as Joe says, a miscellaneous life, and have therefore collected very little information worthy of...
I had the pleasure to receive your letter in reply to mine in which I transmitted the Bank notes, which I am pleased to hear, got safe to hand, and I thank you for your prompt acknowledgment of their receipt. You will, I hope, excuse the trouble I may give you, by making you the organ of my communications, to our friend Dennie, as there are prudential reasons, for not using the privilege of a...
I received yesterday your favor of the 15th: and thank you for your attention to my Commissions. The Books, I believe, had best be sold, as you suggest, at Auction, and to the highest bidder. I shall regret the sacrifice of the folio Edition of the laws, because they have been heretofore in great demand, and in time, would probably sell for a just price, but I must forego the benefit of a...
I suppose you have condoled and sympathized with me, like many other’s of my friends, upon the reputed death of my wife. Should this have been the case, I owe you my acknowledgments, but it is far more grateful to my feelings, that it is yet in my power to assure you that this calamity has not overtaken me, altho’ it has lately befallen a namesake of mine who is a kinsman and an inhabitant of...
Your very friendly letter of the 8th: instant came to hand on the 16th: and I have with some impatience waited the arrival of a little stranger, whose advent has been delayed a full month , that I might have the pleasure, in my reply, of announcing to you & your good lady similar tidings to those communicated by you. I have a Daughter for your son, provided you Should approve the Alliance, and...
Accept my best thanks for the Volume of Moore’s fugitive poems, which accompanied your letter of the 23d: ult: It is the more acceptable, as it completes my set of his works, the former of which, were presented me, by S. Ewing. As specimens of perfection in the style of printing books, in your City, they are far superiour to any I have ever seen; but of their contents, I am truly not...
Your very highly esteemed favour of the 25th: ult: came to hand this day. An acquisition of such value, demands a prompt acknowledgment, and I avail myself of a slight indisposition, as a plausible excuse for absenting myself from Church, that I may have the pleasure of once more communing with you. It was at the instance of my Brother, that I transmitted to you a set of the Lectures, of which...
The Death of our mutual friend Dennie, was announced to me a few days ago, by W. S. Shaw Esqr, who informed me that the intelligence was contained in a letter from you. This even was not unexpected by me, but since the mortal part of our former friend and associate has taken its flight to brighter realms, my memory fastens with delight upon the virtues with which he was adorned. We knew him...
Your favour of the 26th ulto: came to hand this day. I return you my hearty thanks for the very satisfactory detail you have written, of the illness and last moments of our departed friend; full of incident so characteristick and so interesting. It is peculiarly grateful to be informed that he retained his faculties of mind to the last; that he was duly impressed with his approaching...
May I ask the favour of you to forward the enclosed letter? The United States Bank will probably be organized, by the choice of Officers, in all September, and being somewhat interested, in right of other people, in the fashioning of this Institution, I should like to have your opinion of the qualifications of Mr: Jones, of your City, who is spoken of as a candidate for the President of the...
