By a note in the 5 th vol. of Joyce ’s Scientific dialogues I see that the 7 th & 8 th vol s were published in Mar. 1807. I presume therefore they must have come to the US. and will pray you to get them for me to compleat the set you procured me, which consisted of the first 6. vols only. the two volumes wanting are on the subject of chemistry. it is a book of inestimable value, & renders all...
I recieved duly your favor of the 3 d and with it the 3. vols of the Parent’s assistant, for which I thank you. it was very acceptable to my grandchildren & therefore to me. I shall also be glad to recieve the Tales of fashionable life when published. I had delayed asking you to forward your account until you could send me the 7 th & 8 th vols of the Scientific dialogues. but as it seems it...
In a letter to you of Feb. 28. in answer to yours of the 3 d of that month, I acknoleged & thanked you for the parent’s assistant, & expressed a willingness to receive the Tales of fashionable life when published. to a former request of the 7 th & 8 th vols of Scientific dialogues, I added one for Mitford’s history of Greece , if an 8 vo edition could be had, and also for the 4 th
I have at two or three different dates written to ask the favor of you to let me know how much I am in your debt, but have received no answer. if you will be so good as to inform me, it shall be promptly remitted, as it should have been long ago, had the amount been known to me. should you in the mean time have been able to get the 7 th & 8 th vols of the Scientific dialogues I shall be glad...
Your letter of Dec. 2. arrived here during an absence of 6. weeks from home, and on my return I thought to postpone an answer till I could accompany it with a remittance. as this however will require some 2. or 3. weeks yet, & in the mean time your letter of the 3 d arrives, I now acknolege the reciept of both. I am perfectly willing that you should print another edition of the Parliamentary...
I duly recieved your favor of Feb. 2. with a specimen of the size & type you proposed for the Manual, and think you have done prudently in accomodating it to the pocket rather than the shelf of a library. I have desired my correspondents, Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond , to remit for me to mr Barnes a sum of money, out of which I have requested mr Barnes to pay you sixty five Dollars...
Your two letters of Sep. 24. & Oct. 12. have been duly recieved. the packet of books will probably come on by the next stage. by the present one I send to the care of mr Gray of Fredericksbg a packet of 6. vols, which though made up of 4. different works, I wish to have bound as one work in 6. vols, to be labelled on the back ‘the Book of Kings.’ the 1 st & 2 d vols will be the composed of the...
I wrote you on the 17 th to which I presume I shall recieve an answer in due time. the packet of books mentioned in yours of the 12 th is not yet heard of. I mentioned this to mr Gray in a letter of the 25 th so that I suppose it will be forwarded, if it’s loitering is at Fredericksburg . The Library committee requires a proposition on my part as to the price of my library, & as a ground of...
Your favor of the 16 th was recieved on the 19 th and I thank you for the trouble you have taken with my catalogue, and I have no doubt your enumeration is right, mine having been estimated by counting a few pages & taking them for an average. I am contented also with your estimate of price, if the committee should be so, or that they should send on valuers, fixing on your estimate as a...
