I have really placed myself in a very mortifying situation before you with respect to Tracy ’s book. I shall state the case. when I recieved information from mr Duane that he could not print it, mr Millegan of Georgetown happened to be here.

The author of the inclosed having expressed a wish to Th: Jefferson that it might appear in our Southern papers, he sends it to mr Ritchie to give it a place in his columns or not, as he shall think it deserves; Th:J. being unacquainted with the author & taking no interest in his proposed publication. he presents to mr Ritchie his salutations & assurances of great esteem & respect.

Accept assurances of my friendly respect. PoC ( MHi ); on verso of a...
Th: Jefferson presents his friendly salutations & compliments to mr Ritchie, and observes to him that he has not recieved a single Enquirer since he came home the 15 th of March , which makes him apprehend that some circumstance consequent on his change of residence may have occasioned the failure. he has taken for granted that mr Ritchie would call on his correspondent mr G. Jefferson...

It is probable that a mr Clopper of Maryland is now in Richmond exhibiting a loom of the most beautiful invention imaginable. nobody was more pleased than myself with it’s construction, when shewn here, and I was willing to have procured one of them altho’ at a price which I deemed exorbitant. while it was here I recieved a letter from D r Maese of Philadelphia , informing me that one of these...
