Your favor covering an Almanac and the Washingtoniana, was recieved in due time, and would have been immediately acknoleged, but that I had [in?] contemplation to suggest to you some additions to your almanac, which without making it dear to the purchaser, might render it useful for some higher purpose than the common almanac. we certainly want such an one. the day of the month, rising of the...
I am much obliged to you for thinking of me when you got the copies of Rabaut & Meyer , and I now inclose you John Barnes’s check on the bank of the US. for four dollars, the sum noted. should you possess Dumourier’s account of his campaigns, Carnot’s or Madame Roland’s books, I will thank you for them, by the stage, noting their cost which shall be remitted in the same way.—you will render a...
I have recieved, my dear Cardinal, in due time your two letters of May 17. and Sep. 30. from Rome: and it gave me infinite pleasure to learn that you were in good health. what astonishing things had then taken place! how much more astonishing what has since happened! these latter events too having been immediately in the scene where you are, I am filled with anxiety to learn how they have...
Your favor of July 14. with the papers accompanying it came safely to hand about the last of October. that containing remarks on the line of demarcation I perused according to your permission, and with great satisfaction, and then inclosed to a friend in Philadelphia to be forwarded to it’s address. the papers addressed to me, I took the liberty of communicating to the Philosophical society....
Your favor of Oct. 6. has been duly recieved & I am much flattered with the prospect of your communications . the vocabularies of the Western Indians are much desired; and your meteorological observations will also be very acceptable; as they will furnish materials for a comparative view of climates. your letter gives me the first information I have ever had of the language by signs used among...
Though I have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with you, yet the liberty I take of introducing myself to you will I hope find it’s excuse in the motives leading to it. much enquiry you know was excited on the discovery of America as to the origin of it’s inhabitants found here at the time of that discovery. many hypotheses have been hazarded but none of them satisfactory. I have...
I wrote you on the 26th. of the last month, and on the [31st received] your favor of the 17th. my office relating altogether to the legislative [depart]ment, I am entirely unacquainted with the measures proposed in that of the Executive. I may know that the fortification of certain ports [to some] extent has been authorised by the legislature. but whether the Executive will propose a greater...
I am much indebted to my enemies for proving, by their [little] tale of my death, that I have friends. the sensibility you are so good as to express on this occasion is very precious to me. I have never enjoyed better nor more uninterrupted health. I ought sooner to have acknoleged your favor of June 15. which came to hand in due time as did that of the 6th. instant. [I] thank you for your...
In my letter by the last post I omitted to answer the question proposed in a former & repeated in your letter of July 26. whether your manuscript on education can be forwarded by post? it may; and will come safer through that than any other channel. accept in advance my grateful thanks for it; and my effort will not be wanting to avail my country of your ideas. success rests with the gods.—I...
I have just heard, my dear friend, of your arrival , and I hasten to welcome you to our shores, where you will at least be free from some of those sources of inquietude which have surrounded you in Europe. I feel much for what you must have suffered in a voyage of 95. days at this inclement season: but I shall hope to hear that these sufferings have passed away without any lasting effects. I...
