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...
¶ 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...
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...
Mr. Cooper presents his respects to the President of the U. States & will have the honor to dine with him on Thursday next ViU .
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...
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...
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...
I recd. some days ago your letter of Mar. 12. recommending Mr. L. Vanuxem for the Chemical Chair in our University, which we can no longer hope to fill as we had wished. He could not certainly be presented under better auspices; but it is not yet known who may be brought into comparison with him, and it is ascertained moreover that the University cannot be opened for a year or two; and must be...
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 have received the “Report” on the state of the South Carolina College, covered by your favor of December 21. I have read it with very sincere pleasure as the harbinger of days happy for yourself, as well as prosperous for the Institution. You are not, I perceive, without an adversary of the same family which raised its cries against you elsewhere. The triumphs of education under your...
