I inclose you a letter from Judge Peters, president of the board of agriculture at Philadelphia , solliciting either a drawing or a model of your hill-side plough. I prefer sending it to you while at Varina , because as you have Isaac there you may find it as easy to have the plough made there as a model, and from Varina you can give it a ready passage to Philadelphia . this however as is...

To set the Dial. The first and all-important object is to have the top of the dial post perfectly horizontal. without this it never can be true one moment. to this end, after the post is immoveably fixed in the ground, the top should be tried with a level and planed to the true horizontal level in every direction. it will take a butt of a tree 28. or 29.I. diameter. when planed, place the dial...
During the unexampled spell of hard weather which we had in Jan. & Feb. and March , I thought it better not to send the waggoners on the road, and especially as Milly and her two young children were to come back with them. but it has been with inexpressible regret that I have been obliged to retain them latterly while these fine ploughing days were passing. but the necessity of bringing corn...

Condoling sincerely, as I have done, with the family of the late mr Dallas , as well as with the public, for the great loss sustained in him, it is a satisfaction to learn that we are likely to have the benefit of whatever he has left in writing. what this may be I am not informed, except so far as already published: but besides the benefit of the a republication, I am sure he has written...

Yours of Feb. 28. was recieved on the 5 th instant and I now inclose you a power of Attorney copied from th e form you sent me . it has been detained by the difficulty of access to a justice of peace in a county of 60. miles length over which they are sparsely scattered, and difficult to be found at home. I hope the form is such as not to require periodical renewals, which if the certificate...

I recieved duly your favor of Feb. 22. on the subject of paints. I shall certainly want a very great quantity in the course of the present year, as I have to renew the whole outer painting of this house and the terrasses, and to paint that in Bedford which has never been done. but I did not make more of any thing scarcely last year than would pay for the corn we did not make. I must therefore...
In a letter which came to me by mail yesterday and to which the writer had forgotten to subscribe his name, I received those I now send you, the one sealed, the other open as it now is. observing the name of General Clarke on one of them and my letter being dated at Louisville induces me to suppose it is from him. I tender you the assurance of my great esteem and respect. PoC ( MHi ); on verso...

your favor of the 2 d was recieved yesterday. I am much indebted to you for your attention to our turn-pike road, which was an electioneering maneuver of the scoundrel Yancey . the day the bill was postponed in spite of him he had the base hypocrisy to write to me and insinuate he had had it postponed. he attended our last court with a view of feeling the pulse of the people, but so many of...
I learn with real concern that the editor of the Theological Repository possesses the name of the author of the Syllabus. altho he coyly witholds it for the present, he will need but a little coaxing to give it out and to let loose upon him the genus irritabile vatum , there and here. be it so. I shall recieve with folded arms all their hacking & hewing. I shall not ask their passport to a...
