Your favor of the 16 th was recieved on the 19 th and I thank you for the trouble you have taken with my catalogue, and I have no doubt your enumeration is right, mine having been estimated by counting a few pages & taking them for an average. I am contented also with your estimate of price, if the committee should be so, or that they should send on valuers, fixing on your estimate as a...
The library committee of Congress having concluded to take my library without further valuation, at the amount of your estimate, I shall on reciept of the catalogue proceed to review it, arrange and number all the books according as they stand in the catalogue. as on this review many will doubtless be found missing & irrecoverable, deductions proportioned to their size and number must of...
Your letter of Dec. 2. arrived here during an absence of 6. weeks from home, and on my return I thought to postpone an answer till I could accompany it with a remittance. as this however will require some 2. or 3. weeks yet, & in the mean time your letter of the 3 d arrives, I now acknolege the reciept of both. I am perfectly willing that you should print another edition of the Parliamentary...
I duly recieved your favor of Feb. 2. with a specimen of the size & type you proposed for the Manual, and think you have done prudently in accomodating it to the pocket rather than the shelf of a library. I have desired my correspondents, Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond , to remit for me to mr Barnes a sum of money, out of which I have requested mr Barnes to pay you sixty five Dollars...
I keep at this place a small Polygraph which requir es paper exactly of the size of that now inclosed. I must ask the favor of you to send me a ream of that size. the quality too of the model is much liked, altho’ perhaps we do not make any such. I shall be glad also of another ream of 4 to letter paper for use at Monticello . that I now write on is about a good size. these may be packed and...
Your two letters of Sep. 24. & Oct. 12. have been duly recieved. the packet of books will probably come on by the next stage. by the present one I send to the care of mr Gray of Fredericksbg a packet of 6. vols, which though made up of 4. different works, I wish to have bound as one work in 6. vols, to be labelled on the back ‘the Book of Kings.’ the 1 st & 2 d vols will be the composed of the...
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...
I recieved duly your favor of the 3 d and with it the 3. vols of the Parent’s assistant, for which I thank you. it was very acceptable to my grandchildren & therefore to me. I shall also be glad to recieve the Tales of fashionable life when published. I had delayed asking you to forward your account until you could send me the 7 th & 8 th vols of the Scientific dialogues. but as it seems it...
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...
I wrote you on the 17 th to which I presume I shall recieve an answer in due time. the packet of books mentioned in yours of the 12 th is not yet heard of. I mentioned this to mr Gray in a letter of the 25 th so that I suppose it will be forwarded, if it’s loitering is at Fredericksburg . The Library committee requires a proposition on my part as to the price of my library, & as a ground of...
