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...
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 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....
Your letter of July 31. came to hand the day before yesterday only. one of the boxes of books arrived ten days ago. the other is not yet come. the bill in your last letter is of 50½.D. another which came in your letter of May 6. from Fredericksbg was of 41½.D. there have been a few other books furnished of which I have never had a bill, nor know their amount. they were I believe but few; and...
I have at two or three different dates written to ask the favor of you to let me know how much I am in your debt, but have received no answer. if you will be so good as to inform me, it shall be promptly remitted, as it should have been long ago, had the amount been known to me. should you in the mean time have been able to get the 7 th & 8 th vols of the Scientific dialogues I shall be glad...
Your favor of Dec. 29. came to hand last night, and I am very much relieved by it’s reciept. your long silence had reduced me to despair, which would have been quieted had you sent me earlier the candid explanation you have now given, inasmuch as it would have let me understand the real ground of the delay. I am happy however that you have begun, and that it will be your interest to get it...
On my return here from Bedford a few days ago, I found the Hutton and Requisite tables, bound to my mind. by this mail I send you an Ovid’s metamorphoses almost entirely worne out & defaced, yet of so valuable and rare an addition edition that I wish you to put it into as good a state of repair as it is susceptible of. by the next mail I will forward a Cornelius Nepos to be bound. be so good...
