When I first engaged to act as chemical Professor at the south Carolina College, I refused to contract for a longer period than a twelve month, expressly on account of my engagement in Virginia. At my departure from this place last autumn, I refused making any promise to return here on a permanent engagement, untill I had an opportunity of ascertaining the prospects of the Charlottesville...
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...
Your nephew is much better, but far from well: an obstinate feverish tendency still oppresses him: he is better here however than in Philadelphia, because with equally good advice, and more at ease. You were so good as to procure for me some books in France which I fancy are still at L’Orient. My Emporium is suspended, owing to the difficulties of the times, but I keep in view its...
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...
About two years ago, I requested you to procure for me, by means of Gen. Armstrong, or Mr Warden, some books on Chemistry and Mineralogy, which the irregularity of intercourse between this Country and France, prevented me from obtaining. You were so kind as to write on the subject to Paris and directed the amount of what the books might cost, to be paid by one or other of those Gentlemen on...
Mr. Cooper presents his respects to the President of the U. States & will have the honor to dine with him on Thursday next ViU .
I feel myself much indebted to your kindness in sending for the books mentioned in my letter. I had omitted to mention a treatise on the manufacture of Glass by M. Bois D’Antic, but Mr Warden in making general Enquiries, will not fail to have this work also suggested to him. In England there is not one treatise on the Subject, and the doors of every manufactory are closed upon a stranger, so...
