ALS : American Philosophical Society It is long since we had a line from you, but we have sometimes heard of you; to hear you are well gives us pleasure. Though you do not write I trust you do not forget us, nor wish us to forget you, therefore I take this favourable opportunity of sending you a long letter, such I intend it to be, for I fancy I have a great deal to say, as it is so long since...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Time will not permit to give you more than a hasty line. Accept the resemblance I send you of one whom you esteemed, and do me the favour to give one to Mlle. Beeheron, and another to M. Dubourg. I feel so much the honour of the reception he gave to the books that it makes me presume upon this being no unacceptable present. Your affectionate When you have...
ALS : American Philosophical Society So few opportunities offer to convey a letter to you that I must seize the present to acknowledge the receipt of a letter from you addrest to my mother and me last December. I cannot tell by whom it came as it was put into the post; the rest of the superscription being in an unknown hand. We shall always be happy to hear from you, therefore whenever you...
ALS : James S. Bradford (Philadelphia, 1956) A whole year has elapsed since we received one line from you. Perhaps you mean to drop all correspondence with us, but we will not let you off quite so easy as you may think, for whenever an opportunity offers I shall send you a letter. Being this morning informed by an old friend of ours that a young lady would set out in a few days to Paris I take...
ALS : American Philosophical Society We this day received your kind favour by Mr Whitefoord. After a silence of more than a year we hardly expected ever to hear from you again. We are always happy to learn you are well, which Mr W. assures us you were when he saw you. I was much surprised to find you did not know of our removal to this place, as Mr Alexander saw us here in Feby. last. He slipt...
ALS : University of Pennsylvania Library; incomplete AL (draft): American Philosophical Society; incomplete AL (draft): James S. Bradford, Philadelphia (1956) I yesterday received yours of the 13th April, and as Mr Hodgson, in the note which inclosed it, offers to forward an answer I sit down to write one, tho’ I wrote to you last saturday by Mr W. to acknowledge that which he brought us from...
ALS : American Philosophical Society We rejoice in these frequent opportunities of hearing from you. Mr Oswald brought your letter to day; I had not the pleasure of seeing him, but my mother had. As he offered to take an answer, I sit down just to give you a line to tell you we are all well; my mother has been very ill since I wrote last, but is quite recovered. I think she seems to have given...
ALS : University of Pennsylvania Library Dr Shuttleworth informed me that he intended going to Paris in order to consult you upon some American business of his own, and desired an introduction from me. He attended Mr Hewson’s Lectures, and as he has dined several times at our table you probably may have seen him. He was in Maryland with Mr Eden. I am highly delighted with the importance I am...
ALS : American Philosophical Society I received eleven little books for which I thank you. But why was there not one line with them? My poor mother was much disappointed, and I believe imagined that I did not speak truth when I told her there was no letter in the parcel. I know you will pay the tribute of a sigh for the loss of one who loved you with the most ardent affection. She lingered...
