You will observe in it the Advantages they...

Broadside: Yale University Library I Received yours of the 18th of April, inclosing copies of the articles of your agreement, with respect to importation, and of your letter to the merchants here.

You are, in my...
ALS : American Philosophical Society I received your Favour per Capt. Osborne, with the Model of your Machine for raising Water. The Manner in which you have apply’d a single Crank for the Working of three Pumps, wherein the whole Force is apply’d to each, and yet in such quick Succession that there is no Loss of Time, appears to me so extreamly ingenious, that I have scarce ever seen a new...

As you have those fine...
