I find the calculation of the As of Holland (which is the common measure applied by the Encyclopedie to all coins) will be so difficult to trace through the coins and weights of Holland and Spain, that no public assembly will ever understand them. Consequently it is better to rest the question altogether on the report of the Board of Treasury of Apr. 8. 1786. and the Consequent Final decision...

The rival propositions Objections. 1. The inaccuracies of admeasurements over hills, vallies, rivers, and, in this instance, over high mountains, the Pyrenees. 2. This gives them but 9.° or 1/10 of the quadrant. The other 9/10 they are to obtain by calculation, founded on hypothesis. 3. The length of time, the apparatus, the number of Mathematicians to be employed (to wit 6. committees of 3....
I think I told you at the time I spoke to you on the nomination that the President had desired me to enquire if there would be any opposition to Wayne. I told him that you were of opinion there would be none, that you had not thought of making any yourself, for that tho’ you did not like the appointment, yet you knew the difficulty of finding one which would be without objections. I take for...

I inclose you a state of the case between Barrett and myself. You will be so good as to observe that it is not the money sued for that I care a rush about, but that I am anxious it should not be thought that I had put anybody to the trouble or delay of suing me for a just debt. Barrett, by suing me without having applied to me either personally or by letter, put it out of my power to propose...
I am a stranger to the instructions given to Mr. Short on the subject of money, the correspondence thereon having been [direct?] between the Sec. of the Treasury and him, without any mediary. Neither do I know whether any authority was given or not to G. Morris on that subject. The payment of the 19th. of Aug. was made in consequence of a letter from G. Morris as I have reason to believe....

The expectation that you are always from home, prevents my writing to you with regularity; a matter of little consequence to you, as you probably receive Freneau’s paper regularly, and consequently all the news of any importance.—The fiscal party having tricked the house of representatives out of the negative vote they obtained, seem determined not to lose the ground they gained by entering...
I am to acknolege the receipt of your favors of May 8. and 23. and to express my perfect satisfaction with what you have done in the case of Barrett. With respect to the interest from the date of the judgment it is a thing of course, and always as just as the judgment itself. If he swears that the account is unpaid, I shall be satisfied he believes it to be so, and in that case would always...
