Tho’ I am apprehensive that you may be fatigued with Letters of Recommendation, yet I cannot suffer the Bearer hereof, Dr Moyes, to leave this City on his intended Tour to the southern States, without requesting Permission to introduce him to your Notice. To General Greene I am indebted for an Introduction to this Gentleman, & hold myself his Debtor for remembering me on the Drs Subject, from...
I am honored with your Favor of the 15th Inst. & beg you to accept my best Thanks for your polite Attention to my Introduction of Dr Moyes to your Notice, as well as for your Permission of doing the like, in future, for any Gentleman whom I may conceive to be worthy of your Civilities—Of this Permission, however highly I may estimate it, be assured that I shall ever avail myself with great...

The Society for promoting Agriculture, lately established in this City, having done themselves the Honor of electing you a corresponding Member, have charged me with the Care of communicating the same to you.

It would have afforded me great Pleasure could I, at this Time, have answered your Queries as fully & satisfactorily as I wish to do; but tho’ it is not in my Power to do this now, yet, as the definitive Judgement of the Society respecting the Claims 2 & 3, is to be given on the first Tuesday in February, I shall, when that is pronounced, procure a Copy of the respective Essays & forward them...
You will readily acquit me of any Neglect in performing the Promise made in my last, of sending you the Essay on the Farm Yard which obtained the Praemium from the Society for promoting Agriculture, tho’ I confess that Appearances do not seem in my Favor from the long Delay, when I tell you that it was not returned to the Society till the second of this Month. Some particulars in the Essay, as...
The Condescension your Excellency has shewn in delivering to his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury a Copy of a former Address of the Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church & in transmitting the Answer to it, added to your great Candor & Liberality in so stating y[thorn sign] e Laws & Constitutions of the United States on the Subject of it as will be for ever remembered with Gratitude...
I have now to acknowlege the Receipt of your Letter, of May 25, in Answer to mine inclosing Col. Morgan’s Essay. I beg you will not imagine that the transcribing it was troublesome to me. The Pleasure arising from a Communication in which you were interested abundantly compensated for the Time employed in making it; &, I hope, I need not add that I shall think myself happy to be of use to you...
