According to your request of the other day, I send you my formula and explanation of L d Napier’s theorem for the solution of right angled Spherical triangles. with you I think it strange that the French mathematicians have not used, or noticed, this method more than they have done. Montucla , in his account of Lord Napier’s inventions, expresses a like surprise at this fact, and does justice...
Th: Jefferson returns his thanks to M r Girardin for the Sabots, which will be of real value to him. he sends him all the Tomata seed he has. he had rode out when mr Girardin ’s note came, or it should have been then sent. it should be planted immediately. RC ( PPAmP : Thomas Jefferson Papers); dateline at foot of text; addressed: “M r Girardin.” Not recorded in SJL . mr girardin’s note is not...
The bearer hereof, T. Jefferson Randolph , my grandson, proceeds to Richmond with a view to enter as a student in the academy at that place under your care. having been taught Latin & French (the former however not as perfectly as should be) he passed a year at Philadelphia , attending courses of lectures in Botany, Natural history, Anatomy & Surgery. our object in sending him to your academy...
Th: Jefferson must apologise to mr Girardin for not sending an answer to his note of the day before yesterday , which was occasioned by his servant’s departure while he was writing it. he now sends him Jones ’s MS. and Mellish ’s travells. the copy of the British spy which he possesses belongs to his petit format library in Bedford , where it now is. he will with pleas has made a few...
I return the three Cahiers, which I have perused with the usual satisfaction. you will find a few pencilled notes, merely verbal. But in one place I have taken a greater liberty than I ever took before, or ever indeed had occasion to take. it is in the case of Josiah Philips , which I find strangely represented by judge Tucker and mr Edmund Randolph , and very negligently vindicated by mr...
I return you the 15 th 16 th and 17 th chapters which I have kept too long; but since mr Millegan ’s arrival I have scarcely had a moment at command. I have made a few verbal alterations only as usual, except in the 15 th where I suggest an alteration giving a more precise explanation of the transaction it relates to than your text had done. but I observe an omission of one of the most...
I return your cahier, without with about half a dozen unimportant alterations only. three or four of these are foreignisms (if I may coin a word where the language gives none) indeed I have wondered that you could have so perfectly have possessed yourself of the idiom and spirit of the English language, as not to write it correctly merely, but so often elegantly. permit me to suggest a single...
I thank you for the gazettes, review, & Coote s’s history , all of which I have read, except the last, which I have sufficiently examined to see that it is valuable as a repertory only, without any particular merit. on your mention of Mellish ’s opinion of the tenets which distinguish the two political parties of this country, I recollected I had written him a letter on the subject of that...
The unfortunate error into which I led you in conversation by a lapse of my memory, having interwoven itself into your narrative , I found it necessary to remodel that, in order to present a distinct view of the movements of the enemy, & my own, day by day as they occurred during Arnold ’s excursion to Richmond . this is accordingly done now with an accuracy which you may rely on. this...
Th: Jefferson returns his thanks to mr Gerardin Girardin for the two plants of Cape Jessamine which are very acceptable, and will hold himself accountable for the price. he returns the copy of Tacitus having precisely the same edition in his petit-format library in Bedford , and if mr Girardin thinks it can go safely by post to mr Anderson , he will cover it by his frank. he has the identical...
