I am very thankful to you, dear Sir, for the trouble you have been so good as to take with my letter addressed George Jones on recurring to his original, to which mine was an answer, I think it very possible I may have read amiss the cypher subscribed to it. it may perhaps be George Long, or some other signature better known in New York. if you cannot decypher truly the signature, then throw...
I thank you, dear Sir, for your attention to my letter to mr Rush. it heightens the pleasure to recieve a kindness from those we most esteem. I must thank you too for mr Borden’s translation of the Tristia of Ovid. altho’ past the age of poetic enthusiasm, I am yet happy to see the muses cultivated in my own country, and it’s native sons emulating the beauties of Roman song. believe me to be...

I have duly recieved your kind favor of the 11 th inst. M r Raggi had assured me that he was promised a passage in the Cyane capt Creighton to sail for Gibralter about the 20 th of Oct. but as he had not sailed at the date of your letter, I must consider his getting a passage as too uncertain to be waited for. I must therefore request you to withdraw from him my letter to mr Appleton, and to...
I have found my letters for Europe to which I have taken the liberty of asking your attention get always to their destination with so much certainty, that I am tempted to abuse your goodness by often asking the same favor. the communicns with Leghorn, which the wants of our university will still for a while continue, are so necessary to that instn as to render their safe transmission greatly...

I have just recieved from London a letter informing me that a friend had put into the writer’s hand what he calls ‘a small packet to be forwarded to me, and not knowing that the size will admit of it’s travelling by mail he gives me notice of it.’ these are books sent by the author as a donation to our University. I see always with uneasiness this abuse of my Frank by Foreigners and authors...
