I now return you, according to promise, the translation of M. Destutt Tracy ’s treatise on Political economy, which I have carefully revised and corrected. the numerous corrections of sense in the translation have necessarily destroyed uniformity of style, so that all I may say on that subject is that the sense of the author is every where now faithfully expressed. it would be difficult to do...
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 wish you could see the books I recieve from Paris . they are equal to the best English work in...

I have mr Adams’s permission to make what use I think proper of the inclosed letter , in recommendation of the study of Tracy’s book on Political economy. the nation, and especially the wealthier portion of it which is in possession of the function of legislation, is unfortunately in willing bondage to the snares & seductions of the painted harlot of banking bubbles and there can be no remedy...
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.
