I have another occasion for making my acknowlegements in the receipt of the Agricultural Almanac for 1820, which you have been so good as to send me.

The backwardness in furnishing these is much...

By this day’s mail I forward you ⅓ of a parcel of seeds of the Sea-Kale sent here by Genl. Cock for you, mr. Divers & myself.

I have recd. with your favor of Sepr 30 the Copy of the “U. S & G. B” which you have been so kind as to send me, & for which I offer you many thanks. As yet I have rather look’d into the volume than over it. I have seen eno’ of it however, to be satisfied that it is a triumphant vindication of our Country agst. the libels which have been lavished on it. If it be a battery as well as a rampart,...
Your letter with the second annual report of the American Colonization Society, presented by the Managers in a volume so elegantly printed & bound, having got into a wrong channel did not till lately come to hand.
