I have duly recieved your favor of the 13th. you very truly state that your suggestion that the term of the marshal of the district of Delaware was near expiring first brought my attention to that circumstance: that I asked if you knew of any person proper for the appointment & who would accept of it; that you said you did not. I then begged that you would consider of it, & would on your...
I recieved on the 24th. Ult. your favor of the 22d. but it is not till this day that I am enabled to comply with your request of forwarding some of the vaccine matter for Doctr. Coxe. on my arrival at Monticello in July I recieved from Dr. Waterhouse of Cambridge some vaccine matter taken by himself, and some which he at the same time recieved from Dr. Jenner of London. both of them succeeded,...
I recieved last night your favor of the 19th. and with it the pamphlet of Naval architecture for which I thank you. it may be of use in our navy office where I shall deposit it. I am extremely glad to hear that the infection from the vaccine matter I sent has succeeded. but my great anxiety now is to know whether it prevents the small pox: and my anxiety arises not from any doubt that it would...
I have to acknolege the reciept of your favor of the 1st. inst. informing me that the American Philosophical society had again elected me President of the society for the ensuing year. for this mark of their continued favor, I pray you to present them a renewal of my thanks and of my profound respect. I have still to lament that my distance & other occupations leave me nothing but expressions...
In answer to your favor of Dec. 29. it is not in my power to inform you as to the existence or title of the several literary societies you therein mention; but we have Consuls in every country of Europe almost, and through them I can transmit packages for any literary institution, leaving to them to superscribe the proper address. if you approve of this, and will send me a list of the packages...
I recieved last night your favor of the 25th. covering mr Heineken’s letter & list, & the Rules & premiums of the London society of arts & manufactures, which being intended for the A. Philos. Society I now return, & ask their transmission to the Society through the same channel by which I recieved them. the premiums offered by that society are curious, as presenting a statement of the...
I am much obliged to you for the trouble you have taken in procuring a copy of Dr. Priestley’s harmony, yet fear at the same time we may have disfurnished him of the one retained for his own use. I expect that mr John Barnes of George town is at this time at Philadelphia at mr Bissel’s 19. South 3d. street. if he is he will take charge of the book and bring it with him to Washington. if not...
On my arrival here I found your favor of the 8th. instant, and now return you the Diplomas signed. I will thank you to subscribe for three copies of the volume of transactions now coming out. I am glad to learn they will in future be in 8vo. it is certainly the most convenient form, and pedantry alone ever introduced the folio and quarto formats. Accept my friendly salutations & assurances of...
In your letter of Nov. 16. you express a desire to obtain for the Philosophical society an early edition of my Notes on Virginia. I found, when lately at Monticello, a single copy remaining of the original edition printed at Paris, the only one almost perfectly correct, & which never was sold, a few copies only having been printed & given to my friends. I have put this into a box addressed to...
Your favor of Apr. 29. came to hand the day after mine of May 2. was written. some parts of it therefore were anticipated. I inclose for examination a most excellent account of the Washita river written by the Chevalier D’Annemours, formerly Consul of France in Virginia & Maryland, & who has resided on the Washita now many years. he is a man of science, good sense, & truth, and may be relied...
