It is so long since I ought to have written to you that I am ashamed to quote your last date. the information particularly which you were so kind as to obtain and furnish me, as to the cost of a college clock should have been answered. but finding the price you mentioned far beyond our expectation and funds, I took time to have other enquiries made. these however did not result in bringing the...
Mr. Browere (pronounced Brewer) is so anxious to pay his respects to you that I can not refuse him a line of introduction. His object is to take your likeness in plaster, much desired it appears by patrons of a Public Gallery. His success as an Artist is very highly attested. His bust of Genl Lafayette is pronounced by other imitative Artists a conspicuous proof of his talent. The little...

I have taken the liberty of sending to you the notice annexed, for the purpose of exciting attention to a subject which cannot fail to be interesting to literary men. The prevailing system of education needs improvement. It is a complaint often repeated, that the studies which are usually considered preparatory to an academical education, are so tedious to children and youth, as to excite...
Every thing is going on smoothly at the University. The Students are attending their schools more assiduously, and looking to their Professors with more respect. The authority of the latter is visibly strengthened, as is the confidence of those who visit the place, and the effect, on the whole, has been visibly salutary. The Professors are all lecturing, the two Cantabs however somewhat in the...
The short conversation which I had with you on the subject of History, and the decided terms in which you condemned Hume for his want of truth, and partiality; induce me to ask of you the great favour to recommend such Historians as may be most confided in, for being authentic & impartial; and to direct me in a course of history, Ancient & Modern—The importance and advantages of historical...

Your favor of Sep. 24. was recieved in due time and with great thankfulness on behalf of our University for the kind offer of mineral and geological articles. we are young, and have as yet little or nothing in either of these branches of science. and we will request you so far to add to the proffered favor as to chuse for us what you think would be best for us of your collection and of what...
