Since you had said the day before yesterday that you would not go to Fontainebleau today unless the weather was good and since it rained yesterday all day without any sign of change in the near future I hoped to see you after dinner at Chaillot and I have learned with great sorrow that I shall have to leave for Holland without seeing you. Monday evening after we parted I went to Mr. Meyer’s...
The day before yesterday I took the liberty to trouble you with a few lines by M r. Prentis, & expressed my determination to do it more at large by the next opportunity, which now offers in D r. Bancraft. Knowing my way of thinking you must, I suppose, have been surprised at hearing my return to Europe. The friendship with which you have constantly honored me, ever since I had the pleasure to...
L’Orient, 9 July 1785. He sailed from New York 17 June and arrived in L’Orient this day. “I have with me so many bundles of letters and other papers for you as to cost you perhaps 30 louis, were the whole to be sent by post. Mr. Short could perhaps have his for 60 or 70 francs. I cannot get to Paris before the 21st or 22nd of this month; nonetheless I esteem it proper to bring all of it...
The much esteemed favour you did me the honor to write me the 23 d. ult o. , by M r. Smith, was delivered to me by our noble friend M r. Jefferson. You need not ask me, Sir, what I think of the Massachussets’s Act of navigation; you Know my way of thinking well enough, I hope, & of consequence you can easily conceive how my heart rejoiced in reading it. As you do me the honor to ask my...
I have just been honored with your Excellency’s favor of 15 ult o. , & am extremely obliged to you for your discussions on the several topics therein mentioned. As to News-papers, I beg leave to transcribe for your perusal the conclusion of a paragraph, which Marquis de la Fayette, to contradict a false assertion in which he had been named, sent to several Gazeteers in various parts of Europe,...
I return you my sincere thanks, Sir, for the petition from the City of Bristol in 1775, which I have found here on my return from Holland in the letter you did me the honor to write me the 29 th. of December. It will be of great service to prove, that the conduct of our Countrimen has been & is continually misrepresented. The petition, memorial, or address to the King, or some body else from...
Per il pacqueboat precedente Mr. Faure di Havre vi spedì la seconda cassa de’ miei libri, con 103 esemplari legati in 3 volumi, e uno cucito in 4. Il cucito contenente 2 prime parti senza la quarta fù spedito per correggere uno sbaglio accaduto nella prima spedizione, ove in uno dei 64 esemplari era duplicata la 4 ta. e mancava la 1 ma. Varie circostanze mi impedirono di scrivervi allora, onde...
I received in due time from the Count of Sarcefield, the letter you honored me with, dated 20 ult o. According to your obliging direction, I have perused Hutchinson’s compilation, which the Count had of you & has been so good as to lend me. I have likewise perused Douglass’s, which I have borrowed of M r. Jefferson. I cannot find in any one of them, that “les sauvages devoient être dépouillés...

Questa, in proporzione al mio desiderio, brevissima epistola vi perverrà per mezzo del nostro Mr. John Banister, che il latte sburrato à guarito, come sentirete da lui, quasi istantaneamente, dopo d’avere per più di due anni fatto costantemente ai calci e ai pugni colla morte. Sarà un seguito della precedente dei 14. Agosto passato, nella quale parlai, come fo adesso, di due soli oggetti....
