Mr. Cooper presents his respects to the President of the U. States & will have the honor to dine with him on Thursday next ViU .
Your nephew will soon set out from this place, and probably not return. His studies have been greatly interrupted by a very long illness, but since he has been able to read, he has red with good effect. He has however more talent than Industry; but there is no reason to complain on the whole. His health is better: but I am not sorry to hear he is destined for new orleans; for I am persuaded he...
The trustees of the College here, can afford to purchase but the one half of my time. It is an object of consequence with me to employ the rest beneficially for my family. Can you give me the collection of a district for the assessed taxes of which Cumberland County is a part? This did not occur to me when I wrote to you last, but as I promised nothing more than a mere testimonial, I find...
I received yesterday, the specimen of composition of the Congreve Rocket. I have not yet accurately analysed it, because it appeared to me from its obvious properties, that I could make a composition sufficiently similar. I have not returned it to you, because I take for granted you have reserved some of it: if not, as I have used very little of the lump you sent me, it can be returned. The...
I have sent you a copy of my lectures on political economy which I have found intelligible to the students here. I have also taken the liberty of sending a copy for Mr Eppes of Poplar forest near Lynchburgh which I request you would have the goodness to transmit to him. It is the copy marked * Take off the envelope directed to you & there is a direction to him. I beg my kind respects to Mrs...
Mr. Dallas is dead. Gout, brought on by professional fatigue, attacking alternately his Kidneys, his Stomach and his head, proved at length incureable. He had been attacked with it at Trenton about ten days before his death. I say nothing about the loss his friends sustain by this event: the loss is more to the public. He is dead, and cannot now say to you, what he intended to say, and...
I take the Liberty of inclosing you a report concerning ⟨the⟩ State of our College. I remain always with the ⟨highest?⟩ respect, Dear Sir Your obedient Servant RC ( DLC ). Docketed by JM. The enclosure may have been the one-page Report of the Committee on the College, on So Much of the Governor’s Message as Relates to the College, Also on the Presentments from Chester and York. Wm. J. Grayson...
I write to you briefly, because you have little time for long discussions. I understand some privateer has brought in, an english vessel laden with Congreve Rockets, shrapnall shells and other similar machines: would it not be adviseable to distribute a dozen for analysis and imitation, to a committee of two or three men of science in Boston New York and Philadelphia? An idea has occurred to...
¶ From Thomas Cooper. Letter not found. Ca. 22 December 1814. Enclosed in Cooper to Alexander J. Dallas, ca. 22 Dec. 1814 (1 p.; DLC ; undated; addressed to Dallas as secretary of the Treasury at Washington and postmarked 22 Dec.; dated 1 Sept. 1813 in the Index to the James Madison Papers ), in which Cooper states, “I have written by same post to the President, or on consideration I inclose...
On receipt of the inclosed letter I wrote to Mr Jefferson saying that I did not wish to go to Williamsburgh—that if I could be so placed as to earn a moderate Income for the next year at Charlottesville I should prefer it: but that I meant to leave Philadelphia, & could not afford to subsist a twelve month on my present funds & unemployed. I wrote to the same purpose requesting an immediate...
