You have had great reason, my dear Sir, to wonder that you have been so long receiving an answer to your request relative to the drawings of a Cabriolet and Phaeton. Your object was to have such drawings as that a workman could work by them. A painter’s eye draught would not have answered this purpose; and indeed to be sure of having them done with the accuracy necessary to guide a workman I...

Ministers of the gospel are excluded to avoid jealousy from the other sects, were the public education committed to the ministers of a particular one; & with more reason than in the case of their exclusion from the legislative and executive functions.  1.

In my letter of the 14th. of August I inclosed you a note respecting some abuses said to have been committed in the works at Newport. tho’ I am since informed that the facts are possibly or even probably true, yet I find they were sent to me under a forged name. this may render circumspection necessary, as it certainly lessens the probability of the truth of the information.

I am honoured with your letter of yesterday on the subject of the accounts of the United states and of Virginia. My only object in allotting to each the articles which had been paid for them respectively was to enable you to send to the commissioners of the treasury an exact state of the advances which have been made for them: otherwise those advances will appear less than they really are....
I inclose you the letter of a mr Shuter asking permission to send a vessel to Lima. in this you will be pleased to do according to rule, the case presenting no circumstance to entitle itself to an exemption. Also the letter of Stephen Cross of Newbury port suggesting laxity in his brother the Collector, and a spirit of resistance to the laws in the place. Lastly an anonymous letter from N.Y....
I omitted before the rising of Congress to enquire for proper characters to appoint in South Carolina as Commissioners of bankruptcy. mr Calhoun too, best acquainted in Charleston was gone; and if there, he has not the same determination which I have against appointing a single federalist until the two parties have their due proportion of office, and especially in this case where the federal...
Pennsylva. Virginia. Pennsylvania Freeport in English W. Indies. S. Carolina. Govr. Hopkins tells me that old Mr. Middleton at the first Congress informed him that state owed 800,000£ sterl. private debts to Gr. Brit. MS ( DLC ); entirely in TJ’s hand. These notes may have been set down during May-June 1784 as TJ traveled northward, or they may have been compiled later on the basis of replies...
The season for my annual call for books and wines from France now recurring, I had desired my correspondent mr Gibson of Richmond to remit you a sum of 400.D. which he writes me he has done. this I must request you, according to your usual goodness, to dispose of for me by investing it in a safe bill on Paris , where I wish 135.D of it made payable to Mess rs Debures, freres , libraires de...
An absence of 5. or 6. weeks, on a journey I take three or four times a year, must apologize for my late acknolegement of your favor of Oct. 12. after getting thro the mass of business which generally accumulates during my absence, my first attention has been bestowed on the subject of your letter. I turned to the passages you refer to the subject of your letter. I turned to the passages you...
I have duly recieved your favor of Oct. 21. and now inclose you an order on Mr. Brown of Richmond for seventy five dollars, which according to your statement in the letter will suffice for your fall supply and a quarter’s board. Before another quarter is out I shall be in Virginia and will take care to furnish you with another order in time. I do not recollect whether you had made a beginning...
