Your favor of the 2d. inst gave me great satisfaction, I thank to you very much for your kindness of recommending me for the Professorship vacant at the Virginia University. I have since written to Mr: Joseph C: Cabell, Rector of it, in more detail, as by the Prospectus the place is to be filled by the 1.st Septr. I delayed troubling you again upon it, to try if possible to save from...
The Kind interest which You have always taken in the Work of the Coast Survey, occasiones me to communicate to You herewith a Copy of the principal Documents relating to that work, which it has become necessary for me to print on account of the violent attack made upon me, and my character by the 4th Auditor under whose hands the transfer of the work to the Navy Department has brought the...
In taking the Liberty to address to You herewith Copies of my Reports upon Weights and measures, I again make use of the priviledge, which I have often assumed to continue to give You some account of my employment of my time. The object of the present is most likely not without some Interest for You, the manner in which I have treated the subject is in many respects new, and I hope however...
Permit me with the present to present to You a Copy of my logarithmic and trigonometric Tables, which just now appear in the public, to which I made the Introduction in, 5 languages, as the intermediate titles shew, that they may acquire more general course; the numbers being the same for all, this extension appeared to me proper, so that each of the 4 living languages might have the book in...

I should be very happy to see my now several elementary works of Mathematic introduced in Virginia, they appear to be much approved generally, and particularly by the...
Allow me to have the honor to present You with the present again with a new publication of mine intended to diffuse interest for a science the general utility of which is as universally acknowledged as it is desirable to extend it in this country. A popular exposition of the system of the Universe, which I should feel happy if my desire of rendering this study agreeable had the success that...
Excuse the liberty which I take to interrupt You again with the communication of a publication of mine the enclosed elements of Arithmetic which I have employed a few leasure days, in my unoccupied state to publish, upon desire of some persons that a better principled schoolbook might be published. About 250 Copies being made on better paper as the one here joined, may serve for persons not...
Your favor of the 5 th inst t has again highly obliged me by the kind interest you always take in what concerns me and Your subscription to my trigonometry if I can bring it to light in which the book sellers here are not very liberal in lending a hand, so that perhaps I may have to send it to a friend in London for publication. Upon Your account of the Professors of Virginia University and...
Circumstances induce me to attempt the publication of the courses of analytical trigonometry which I had planed in 1806 and used at the Military Academy of West point, and adapted peculiarly to the habitual mode and order of studying elementary mathematics in this country. Supposing the Knowledge of the most elementary Books of Euclid, and the simplest Algebra, till quadratic equations...
As upon an advertisement of the University of North Carolina to get a Professor of Mathematics I have tendered my services for that place; I took the Liberty to make Use of the Kindness which You have allways pleased to shew me by referring to Your testimony upon me, it is my duty to inform You of the Liberty which I have taken, and to recomand me merely in the continuance of Your Kind...
