I wrote to you from Bedford the 1 st inst. to which I refer you if you have made a list of the books I forwarded for binding I would thank you for a copy, being at a loss sometimes to recollect whether a particular book was among them. indeed I shall be glad of the books themselves as soon as you can have them bound. I observe their there is a mail-tumbrel from Fredsbg weekly to Milton which...
Mine of Feb. 18. informed you I had desired mr Gibson to remit you 100.D. on account which he writes me he has done. the object of the present is to let you know I shall set out for Bedford the 10 th of April & be back by the 10 th of May which may govern you in sending the proof sheets of Tracy . I shall hope on my return to find my Tacitus here.
My duty to mr Tracy does not permit me to be longer silent on the publication of the translation of his work. you were by agreement to have begun it July 4. 1816. eighteen months have elapsed, and we are at the 210 th page of a work of 578. pages: at which rate we should be 3. years more in compleating it. but worse than that, since the 28 th of April now 8. months two half sheets only have...
Your favor of Mar. 6. did not come to hand until the 15 th . I then expected I should finish revising the translation of Tracy ’s book within a week, and could send the whole together. I got thro’ it, but on further consideration thought I ought to read it over again, lest any errors should have been left in it. it was fortunate I did so, for I found several little errors. the whole is now...

I am just now returned from a 7. weeks visit to Bedford , to which place I went immediately on writing you my letter of Aug. 17. on my return I find here your two letters of Aug. 16. and 20. the former covering my account amounting to 264.75 from which deducting the 92.D. remitted a balance remains of 172.75 I knew there had been other books furnished me of which I had no account; but it runs...
By the stage which will leave this 4. days hence, I shall send you under the care of mr Carr a box and a bundle containing the following books. Scientific dialogues. 6. vols to be bound in 3. & a little reduced in size Euripide de Prevost . 4. v. 12 mo Dizzionario del Cormon . Fr. Ital. 8 vo Dictionnaire de Cormon . Ital. Fr. 8
By a note in the 5 th vol. of Joyce ’s Scientific dialogues I see that the 7 th & 8 th vol s were published in Mar. 1807. I presume therefore they must have come to the US. and will pray you to get them for me to compleat the set you procured me, which consisted of the first 6. vols only. the two volumes wanting are on the subject of chemistry. it is a book of inestimable value, & renders all...
By a letter from M r Sam l H. Smith I am informed that the President had engaged you to come on here as soon as I should be ready to examine and pack the library, and that mr Dougherty was to superintend the transportation. I have been a fortnight laboriously engaged in revising the books, & placing them on their shelves every one in the place and order in which it stands in the Catalogue....
