Letter not found. Ca. 5 July 1810. Acknowledged in Cooper to JM, 9 July 1810 . Congratulates Cooper for his dissenting opinion in Dempsey v. Insurance Company of Pennsylvania .
The tardiness of acknoleging the reciept of your favor of May 10. will I fear induce a presumption that I have been negligent of it’s contents: but I assure you I lost not a moment in endeavoring to fulfill your wishes in procuring a good geological correspondent in this state. I could not offer myself; because of all the branches of science it was the one I had the least cultivated. our...
I have recd. your favor of the 19th. Aug. and have transmitted the request it makes, to Mr. Warden, who will more certainly be found at Paris, than Genl. Armstrong, and who is perhaps, more in communication with those most capable of assisting his researches. I need not, I hope, assure you that I have felt a pleasure in contributing, in the way you have thought proper to make use of me, to an...
By the return of the Frigate Essex, I have received from Mr. McRae on whom the Consulate at Paris provisionally devolved, an answer to my letter addressed to Mr. Warden on the subject of the Chemical books you wished to procure. I subjoin the requisite extract “A stranger & almost entirely ignorant of the language even of the Country, I have been obliged to avail myself of the aid of Doctr....
I recieved by our last post, through mr Hall of Baltimore , a copy of your introductory lecture to a course of chemistry for which accept my thanks. I have just entered on the reading of it and percieve that I shall have a feast before me. I discover, from an error of the binder, that my copy has duplicates of pages 122. 123. 126. 127. and wants altogether pages 121. 124. 125. 128. and...
Your favor of Nov. 8. if it was rightly dated, did not come to hand till Dec. 13. and being absent on a long journey it has remained unanswered till now. the copy of your introductory lecture was recieved & acknoleged in my letter of July 12. 1812 . with which I sent you Tracy ’s 1 st vol on Logic. your Justinian came safely also, and I have been constantly meaning to acknolege it, but I...
In my letter of Jan. 16. I promised you a sample from my Commonplace book , of the pious disposition of the English judges to connive at the frauds of the clergy, a disposition which has even rendered them faithful allies in practice. when I was a student of the law, now half a century ago, after getting thro Coke Littleton, whose matter cannot be abridged, I was in the habit of abridging and...
In my letter of Jan. 16. I mentioned to you that it had long been in contemplation to get an University established in this state, in which all the branches of science useful to us , and at this day , should be taught in their highest degree; and that this institution should be incorporated with the college and funds of W m & Mary . but what are the sciences useful to us, and at this day...
I regret much that I was so late in consulting you on the subject of the academy we wish to establish here. the progress of that business has obliged me to prepare and address to the President of the board of trustees , a plan for it’s organisation. I send you a copy of it with a broad margin, that, if your answer to mine of Aug. 25. be not on the way, you may be so good as to write your...
Your several favors of Sep. 15. 21. 22. came all together by our last mail. I have given to that of the 15 th a single reading only, because the handwriting (not your own) is microscopic & difficult, and because I shall have an opportunity of studying it in the Portfolio in print. according to your request I return it for that publication, where it will do a great deal of good. it will give...
