I received on the 26 th of last month your favor of the 14 th of August, and have had great pleasure in attending to the commissions which it entrusted to me. Law books being very costly, Thomas’s edition of Coke Littleton is set down at £4.. 4, though but three volumes. Rapins history, in fifteen, may be had for £2. 12. It is therefore my intention to send you for the present, only these two...
I wrote on the 14 th of March, mentioning the circumstances under which I had purchased the books, and now it gives me pleasure to say, that they have been shipped on board the ship Henry Clay, Thomas Potts master, which sailed from this port a few days ago, for Richmond. By the accidental ommission of our consul to inform me of the sailing of the ship, until after she had gone, this letter...
I received two days ago by Mr Gilmer your highly interesting favor of April the 26 th respecting the University of Virginia, and lose no time in saying how happy I shall be in paying every attention to it.

I yesterday received from Mr Bowring the enclosed letter and packet to your address, which I have great pleasure in forwarding. Mr Bowring, with whom I have had much intercourse in this country, is a man of talents and attainments, of liberal opinions in government, and of good feelings towards the United States. He has a connexion with the Westminster Review, a new periodical work established...
I have heretofore acknowledged your favor of the 26 th of April, and a few days ago that of June the 5 th reached me. The enclosure which it contained for Mr Gilmer I immediately forwarded to him at Cambridge, where he now is prosecuting his objects, yours, those of Virginia, and I will add of our common country. This I know from himself, and I also heard of him accidentally a couple of days...
I hasten to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 20 th of October, enclosing a bill of exchange drawn by Joseph Marx and son, for 40 pounds sterling. It got to hand this day, the list of books enclosed, it will afford me very great satisfaction to procure in the best manner in my power.

Mr Owen, of New Lanark, in Scotland, well known by the exertions which he has long been making to meliorate the condition of society in this country, being about to take a trip to ours, I presume to give him this line of introduction to you. I am not able to pronounce upon the feasibility of his plans in all respects; but that they are full of benevolence all admit, as well as that they have...
My last to you was on the 9 th of this month in reply to your favor of the 14 th of August, and enclosed copies of two notes from Mr Blatterman. I have now the pleasure to mention, that the books, as by the enclosed bill and receipt from Mess. Lackingtons, have been forwarded from this port to Baltimore, in the Mandarin, (there being no ship for Norfolk or Richmond) in a box to your address,...

The latter enclosed a letter for Mr Roscoe and one for M rs Cosway, both of which I was happy to be the means of forwarding. The residence of M rs Cosway was found out without difficulty. The list of books, I have had great pleasure in...
