Judge Cooper presents his respectful compliments to the President of the United States, and submits to his consideration the inclosed observations differing in some respects from the known Sentiments of the President on the Subject. Judge Cooper hopes and believes that this difference of opinion will occasion no other difference. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
I did not receive your reply to my note, untill my return from Philadelphia yesterday. I thank you kindly for the Pamphlet you were so good as to send me, which I had heard of when I wrote the essay signed “Vindex”, but which I did not see till my arrival in Philadelphia. It certainly does credit even to Mr Maddison’s pen, but I think the doctrines defended in it, are carried to their very...
From some late circumstances, I have reason to believe that neither Mr Priestley’s directions nor mine to transmit to you a copy of the memoirs of his father’s life have been complied with, though a set was appropriated for you to be sent at the first moment of publication. If you have not received one, be good enough to let me know: it will be a cause of much chagrin to Mr Priestley and...
I received your letter here on my return from the Court of Erors & Appeals at Philadelphia. I send you my Copy of the memoirs, with some [emendations] and marginal notes, which tho they do not ornament the pages, will serve to explain some passages which the errors of the press converted into nonsense. I laboured under a very dangerous, and very painful illness while I composed my part, and I...
After four years perseverance I have succeeded in calling the attention of our State Legislature to the subject of Turnpike roads, and they have made a very liberal beginning of a System that I yet hope to see compleated. I wish now excite them on the subject of a general System of Weights & Measures. A beginning has been made, by a report full of information laid before the Senate last...
I have finished a brief account of what has been done on the subject of a Standard for weights and measures, and sent it to Binns, but whether he will deem it sufficiently popular for his paper I know not. It cannot of course be more than an imperfect sketch, depending as I am compelled to do, for information, on the books about me. John Vaughan bought of Mr Hasl ar , an excellent collection...
I was extremely glad to see the result of the Meeting in Philadelphia in favour of the measures of the Administration, and I meditated a long meeting of the same kind in this County. I returned from my Circuit yesterday, and in my way I sounded some leading people, and notwithstanding the certain Opposition of Maclay’s friends, whose influence is very considerable here, I had not much doubt of...
intended to have proceeded from hence to Was[hington] the place ere your departure, but I find I cannot with convenience fulfil my wishes and intentions. In all probability therefore I shall have no opportunity of paying you my personal respects: accept therefore of my sincere good wishes for your health and happiness in your retirement. I send you the inclosed pamphlet drawn up by Mr Dallas,...
On my coming from England in 1793 I brought with me a very good collection of minerals: the principal part of which were in some manner or other lost at the Custom house so that I never recovered them. The few remaining ores I possessed, I gave to M r Tho s Smith when he and M r Maclure paid me a visit here many years ago. M r Smith , a young man of much promise whom I dare say you knew...
I acknowledge with many thanks your kind letter giving me an account of your application to Mr Cabell . I shall be able in a year or two to form a very interesting collection of American ores and minerals, which I shall so form and arrange as to be an elementary collection for the use of Tyro’s in my part of the back Country, rather than a curious collection for the amusements amusement of...
