I received your Order ⅌ favor of Coll. Smith, which is nearly ready and will be sent of from London in about three days. I shall esteem it as a great favor if you’ll be so kind as to send me the History of Sandford and Merton, in French, which I am this Instant Inform’d is Just Translated by Mr. Berquin, the Author of the Childrens Friend. I beg pardon for the Liberty taken, as I am very...
I have sent by the Diligence the three first numbers of Sandford et Merton, being all which has yet appeared. A number comes out every month, and it will be nine months before the whole will be out. You shall receive them as they appear, and always by the Diligence unless you would prefer any other channel of conveyance. I am Sir your very humble servt., PrC ( DLC ); endorsed. It will be noted...
I have this Instant your’s of the 8th. Inst., and Yesterday Sandford and Merton, for which I return you my very sincere thanks, for the great favor that you have done me, as the immediate procuring of this Work was of great consequence to me. I am afraid it will be deem’d an encroachment on good Nature, to request the favor of having sent by the first dilligence the friend of Youth by Mr....
I will thank you to send me by the Diligence Sterne’s works complete, 5. vols. 12mo. published by Cadell 1780. I name this edition because it brings all his works into the smallest compass of any one I have seen. If you know of any edition still smaller I would prefer it, elegantly bound. A friend here has desired me to procure there two peices of Pope, viz, ‘Happy the man whose wish and care...
You have two or three times proposed to me the printing my Notes on Virginia. I never did intend to have them made public, because they are little interesting to the rest of the world. But as a translation of them is coming out, I have concluded to let the original appear also. I have therefore corrected a copy, and made some additions. I have moreover had a map engraved, which is worth more...
I duly received your favor’s of Janry. 28th. and Febry. the 1st. and have sent the Articles agreable to your Order by this Nights Coach which I hope you’ll receive in time. I sent part of the Books to America a long time since by the Gentleman you desir’d, but have not been able to get the remainder. I shall be happy to receive your corrected Copy, which shall be neatly and correctly Printed...
By the Diligence of tomorrow I will send you a corrected copy of my Notes, which I will pray you to print precisely as they are, without additions, alterations, preface, or any thing else but what is there. They will require a very accurate corrector of the press, because they are filled with tables, which will become absolutely useless if they are not printed with a perfect accuracy. I beg...
Finding on my return to this place that the bookseller to whom I had committed the plate of my map, instead of keeping it only a fortnight, had not yet delivered it to be forwarded to you, I demanded an instantaneous delivery of it. A thousand evasions have led me through three weeks, so that it was not till yesterday that I could obtain it, threatening on the return of my messenger without...
I received your favor of July the 1st. together with the plate, safe, by your Messenger; it has been a great disappointment to me, not receiving it, at the time promised, and I am afraid a detriment to the sale of the Book, London now being nearly empty of Book buyers. And I am sorry to inform you that the plate is so much wore, that the Impressions which I want will not be quite leidgeable....
[ London, 13 July 1787 . Recorded in SJL as received 18 July 1787. Not found.]
According to the desire expressed in your last letter I send you a book which has just appeared, of the instructive kind and fit for children. It is entitled ‘a complete course of instructions and anecdotes by Father Berenger,’ 2.v. 12 mo. Having little time to read I have been able to peruse only about 30. or 40. pages, and so far it appears to me to be one of the best things I have ever seen...
Not hearing any thing yet of the books which should have come from Lackington’s and from yourself I suspect they may be lying in the warehouse of the Diligence in London, perhaps forgotten, and will beg the favor of you therefore to send there for enquiry. Send me if you please a copy of the American Atlas, latest edition and one of Mr. Adams’s books on the American constitutions. Note the...
I duly received your’s of the 17th. and 25th. Ultimo and should have sent the Articles off sooner had it not been for the difficulty I had to meet with Gordon’s Tacitus, it being entirely out of Print; it is bound, but I hope it will answer your purpose, the Price is £1. 4. Just as I was going to ship 400. of your Work, for Richmond and Philidelphia, I had the disagreable intelligence to learn...
The books you have last sent me are this moment come to hand, and all right except that the ‘Historical remarks on the taxation of free states’ printed by Richardson 1781. is not among them. I will still trouble you therefore to send it by some opportunity. I thank you for the dozen copies of the Notes on Virginia. The remaining 34. shall be sold so as to pay the 8d. sterl. a vol. their...
I duly received yours of the 14th. Instant, and am exceedingly obliged to you for the trouble you have taken with the Bookseller for the Sale of the Notes on Virginia. I have seen Mr. Dilly Bookseller in the Poultry, who positively assures me that your Book is printed at Philidelphia, and that his authority, is, Mr. Bury, Bookseller at New York, Mr. Dilly believes what he has asserted, tho’ I...
Perceiving by your favor of Aug. 31. that the 1st. vol. of le Petit Grandison has miscarried I went to the bookseller’s and have got it supplied. You will receive therefore with this letter the 1st. and 3d. vols. of le Petit Grandison, and the 10th. of the Friend of youth, which are the last. What comes out hereafter shall be forwarded as soon as it appears.—You may remember that some numbers...
I duly received yours of the 10th. Inst. and return you my sincere thanks for your kindness in sending the little Volumes wanted, which I received by favor of Mr.—of Hatton Garden, and for your attention in forwarding the continuation. Mr. Lackington informed me that he had sent you a Catalogue a fortnight since, but for fear you should not have received it, I have sent another together with...
Your favor of Sep. 21. inclosing your account came safely to hand. I observe one error in it, a History of Philip 3d. charged as a quarto edition 25/. whereas it was the 8vo. edition in 2. volumes which I presume was cheaper. Also the 34. copies of the Notes on Virginia £9–1–4. for which I have no objections to be answerable when the bookseller shall have sold them, but not before. With...
I wrote you last on the 10th. of October, and having received no answer to my letter, I presume it must have miscarried and therefore send you a copy of it on the adjoining leaf. To this I take the liberty of referring you as to it’s contents. I must press the immediate sending the plate of my map, as the bookseller here had not struck off his whole quantity, and apprehends he shall suffer if...
I wrote you on the first day of this month, and hope you will have received the letter. To the books I then desired, be pleased to add Volney’s travels thro Egypt, Syria & c. printed by Robinson; The history of the internal affairs of Holland since 1783, printed also by Robinson if I recollect rightly. Send them in boards. I am with much esteem Sir Your most obedt. humble servt., PrC ( DLC ).
I duly received your three Letters, but owing to the alterations I have been making in my house, by enlarging my Shop &c. has prevented me for this two Months past of paying that respect to you, and attention to my business that it required. But I have now got the Shop in excellent order and my business in a proper train, tho’ I am a little discomposed by having been complained of by the House...
I must still refer you to my letters of Sep. 10. Oct. 10. Jan. 1. and Jan. 16. to which I have no answer except yours of Feb. 22. promising an answer. Lest your account should come during my absence in Holland and Germany, I remitted you from Amsterdam £15. sterling through Mr. Trumbul. I imagine you have not sent the books hearing that I was on a journey. To those desired in the letters above...
In my former letters I mentioned to you that not knowing exactly the balance I owed you when I set out from this place for Amsterdam, I had remitted from Amsterdam a bill of exchange to Mr. Trumbull praying him to pay you 15£ out of it. As I did not recollect his address, the letter was inclosed to Sr. Robt. Herreis, who not being able to find him returned it to my bankers in Amsterdam, with...
I had written the preceding letter yesterday, but it had [not] yet gone out of my hands when I received yours of the 11th. inst . I must refer you to my letter of Oct. 10. 1787. for an explanation of the credit I state on the next leaf for Watson’s Phil . III. as also for the maps. All I wished as to the maps was to avoid loss, which I shall not do, charging you 10d. a piece instead of 1/ a...
I have this Instant received your two Letters by the hands of my good friend Mr. Trumbold and the ballance of your Account up to the present time, as ⅌ Account annexed Viz £13.13.6. for which I return you my sincere thanks as well as for your kind remittance of the French Books. From Letters which I have received from different Gentlemen in America I am convinced that the whole of the...
