M r Ro Walsh J r has the honor to present to M r Jefferson the volume sent herewith , presuming that the scientific and literary intelligence which it Contains, may be of interest to one, who embraces so large a portion of human knowledge in the range of his enquiry. RC ( DLC ); dateline at foot of text; addressed: “Thomas Jefferson Esq re ”; endorsed by TJ as received 15 Mar. 1817 and so...
I have requested the Bookseller to transmit at once by Post to M r Jefferson his Copy of the 2 d Vol: of the American Register & to Correct with a pen the errors of phrase which would have been avoided, if my position had allowed me to revise the proof-sheets more attentively. I trust that M r Jefferson will be pleased with my (too hasty) translation of M r de Marbois’ work.   I have the honor...
When I mentioned to you the Dissertation of Professor Playfair on the progress of Mathematical and Physical Science, you expressed, I think, a wish to have the work. I therefore take the liberty of Sending it to you, and have no doubt but that it will give you particular pleasure, inasmuch as you have a strong relish for Mathematical Studies. In examining an invoice of Books Sent Me from...
I thank you sincerely for the letter with which you have honoured me. I did not intend that the Dissertation of Playfair Should be returned, as I possessed another copy; but I am heartily glad, at all events, that I have been the means of contributing to your amusement. The Professor himself would attach no Small importance to the opinion which you have pronounced on his work, and I rejoice in...
Your acceptable letter of the 19 th Ulto : and the tract of M r Tracy were received in due season. Owing to the attention which I found myself impelled by curiosity to give to the debates of Congress and the arguments of the Supreme Court , I did not find get leisure to Cast my eye over the work of Tracy , until yesterday.
As there is now no likelihood of the resurrection of the American Register, & as I am about to return with my family to Philadelphia , I think it proper to restore to you at once the valuable manuscript of M r de Tracy . It certainly deserves to be well translated, & published among us; but I doubt the sale would defray the expence of printing. The taste for Such profound speculations is...
Not being able to resist my itch for scribbling, I have undertaken, in concert with Judge Cooper and a gentleman of New York , to contribute to a magazine of which I take the liberty of sending you two Numbers . The first article of each is of my doing , and the “Reflections on the Institutions of the Cherokees” are from the pen of M r F. Gilmer so well known, and so piously attached, to you....
I send you another N o of the Analectic magazine ;—not, however, as to a subscriber. It was by no means my intention to subject you to a double tax. That of even looking thro’ such light matter is enough, and, perhaps, the more onerous of the two in your estimation. I have no pecuniary interest in the circulation of this journal. There is no branch of “internal improvement” in which I feel so...
We heard in this city, a few weeks ago, that you were painfully indisposed; and I believe there was no one to whom this information gave more chagrin than to my self. I consider the prolongation of your vigor and life as devoutly to be wished not only on account of your personal merits, and past services to the country, but with a view to the great good which you may still effect. Not being...
On my return, a few days ago, from a visit to Washington , I found here your obliging & very interesting letter of the 4 th ins t concerning D r Franklin . I am the more grateful for the opinions and anecdotes you have Communicated, as I know how you are oppressed by the extent of your correspondence. What you have said as to Franklin ’s share in the Preliminaries, and to his relations with...
