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,...
I have to offer many apologies for detaining so long the letters you were kind enough to put into my hands , and which I now return. When I got back from my short, though most pleasant and gratifying excursion as far as Monticello , I sent them on to Philadelphia . Intending to go there in the course of the autumn, I did not ask that they should be transmitted back to me, preferring to bring...
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...
By the mail of this day, I take the liberty to send you a small pamphlet , which I have to beg you will do me the honor to accept. That you may continue to be blessed with health in your retirement, and that your illustrious life may long be spared, is the wish of one who has the honor to subscribe himself, RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Ths: Jefferson, Esquire”; endorsed by TJ as received 23...
I cannot permit the letter which you did me the favor to write to me by Mr Ticknor, to remain unacknowledged, if it be only to express the gratification which I felt at receiving it, and the sincere pleasure I derived from the testimony it afforded of your recovery from the illness with which, shortly before its date, you had been afflicted. I have one other motive. The world knows, that...
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,...
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...
I have heretofore acknowledged, by a line, your much-esteemed favor of the 20 th of October, since which that of the 27 th of December has got to hand. 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...
Immediately after the receipt of your favor of the 17th instant I wrote to Philadelphia , and have received from my mother an answer which I beg leave to lay before you, in her own words, as far as relates to the subject of our correspondence. “Both James and I have made search for the letters for Mr Jefferson ; the first he names (that of April 21. 1803 ) is not to be found; those I enclose...
