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...

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...
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...
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...
