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...
Your favor of the 13 th of October got to hand yesterday. The letter which it enclosed for Mr Gilmer, I beg to return, Mr G. having left England early in October for the U. States. I did myself the pleasure to transmit to you, in October, a letter which he confided to my care, previously to his embarkation. The visit of La Fayette to our country, speaks too much in favor of his deserts and our...
I received from Mr Gilmer, on the eve of his embarhation from Cowes, the enclosed letter, with a request that I would forward it to you. I am detained here contrary to my expectation until the spring, having written for my recall last year. Permit me hence to say, that if when Mr Gilmer shall have got back to you, it should be found that any thing has escaped his activity and zeal regarding...
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...
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 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. It merits, indeed, under all views, my very best attention. The great publick results that hang upon the well-being of this University, bind me as a citizen of our country to look anxiously...
Mr. Blaetterman called upon me a few days ago, to make some inquiries relative to the University. I told him that I believed its operations had been suspended for a while, through some unfortunate causes, but that I was under a like belief that its prospects were again as good or better than ever. He asked me if I thought he might write to you on the subject, and if I would forward his letter,...
London: July 12. 1822. Received and forwarded by R. Rush, who begs at the same time to renew to Mr Jefferson the assurances of his faithful and highest respect. MHi .
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,...
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...
