Your several favors of Dec. 11. 19. & Jan. 2. have been duly recieved with the packets accompanying them, for which be pleased to accept my thanks, with those of the other members of my family to whom a part of them were addressed. I learn with much pleasure that your prospects of returning to France in the character you wish, afford grounds of hope. I sincerely wish they may be re l alised;...
When I wrote my letter of the day before yesterday , I had not yet had time to look into the pamphlets you had been so kind as to send me. I have now entered on them, and find in the very entrance an article so interesting as to induce me to trouble you with a second letter. it is the first paper of the 1 st fasciculus of published by the Belfast society in which mr Richardson gives an account...
M r Burwell is this moment arrived here, and our post in the instant of it’s departure. the inclosed letter happens to have been ready written and I am extremely anxious to have it delivered into the hands of M. Tracy without the possibility of it’s being opened by the government. mr Burwell thinks if I inclose it to you by this post it may get to N. York before you will have sailed. I...
Your letter of the 18 th gives me the hope you have recieved that which I had taken the liberty of putting under your care for M.

I recieved your favor of the 1 st by our yesterday’s post and have hastily written the two inclosed letters to Mess rs La Fayette & Kosciuszko , the in the hope that the return of the post may still find you at Washington . I kept, during the last half dozen years of my residence at Washington a diary of the weather . I h
The possibility that another post may still find you at Washington induces me to risk another letter’s getting in time to have the benefit of your care. mr Mazzei , of Pisa , to whom it is addressed, is the intimate friend of mr Febroni , probably known to you as a man of letters, lately appointed by the Emperor a Maitre de requetes , charged with the care of roads and bridges South of the Alps

I need much of your indulgence for the want of punctuality in acknoleging the reciept of your several favors. but my situation is so far removed from the seaport towns, that no notice of vessels about to sail ever reminds me of the duty of making these acknolegements; and so they lie over from month to month, until my own conscience is at length smitten by the delay. even at this moment I know...
My last to you was of Dec. 29. 13. since which I have recieved your’s of May 5. and July 25. with P.S.S. of June 18. & Aug. 1. these gave me the first information of your being under any difficulty with our government, and I lost no time in writing to the President & Sec y of State , sending the statement you inclosed. the plain and direct narrative of this paper I did not doubt would impress...
It is long since I have written to you. the reason has been that from one of your letters I concluded you were returning to the US . by yours of Apr. 9. 15. I found you were still at Paris . I can assure you that I did every thing in your case which could be done, as far as decency or effect permitted: but I found that nothing would avail; & ceased under the hope that your presence here might...
I recieved last night your favor of Feb. 20. and hasten to acknolege it by return of mail, in the hope it may be in time to reach mr Gallatin before his departure. I should have associated you myself with mr Ticknor in requesting the friendly office of purchasing some books for me, but at the time he left this country your letters had given me reason to believe you might be on a return to it....
