I n am in the daily hope of recieving new proof sheets and the particular wish that we may go thro’ the work before April, because I shall then go to Bedford and be absent a month. I do not know how our account stands; I mean independantly of the 60.D. for the translation; for I do not wish that reimbursement until you have made it by the sale of the book. if you will send me my account,...
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...
You must excuse me, dear Sir, if I trouble you with my inexpressible anxieties about the delay of publication of mr Tracy ’s book, as I hear nothing of it’s commencement altho’ you assured me it should be begun the 4 th of July. mr Tracy ’s complaints of me give me a right to complain highly of mr Duane , and now turn to you. pray let me hear from you, and say only what I may depend will be...
In your letter of June 4. you informed me you would be ab le to begin Tracy ’s work by the 4 th of July. my responsibility to m r Tracy makes me expect with anxiety the Prospectus & proof sheets. I hope soon to begin to recieve them. they shall meet no delay from me. will you be so good as to send me the Miniature editions of Homer ’s
On the 7 th Ult. I wrote to you and forwarded at the same time the corrected translation of mr Tracy ’s book, with a request that you would forward to me for correction the proof sheets as they are struck off, and as we have three mails a week now from Washington , you will always recieve the sheet on the 5 th day after it comes from your hands, perhaps sometimes on the 7 th . having as yet...
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...
The last letter recieved from you was of Aug. 20. on the 27 th Oct. I wrote you a statement of our balance 136.75 D and that I should that day write to mr Gibson to remit it to you. I wrote to him the next day , and the day following set out for Bedford and was absent two months, so that I never heard from mr Gibson of the actual remittance. so that yet I have no reason to doubt it, and the...
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...
The answers to letters which had accumulated during a two months seven weeks absence in Bedford , and the daily calls of my own affairs here have delayed longer than I expected the examination promised in my letter of the 5 th into the paiment I beleived I had made of for the early volumes of Wilson ’s ornithology. I was led astray too in my researches by an idea that that paiment had been made
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...
