Your kindness and attention, which I shall ever gratefully remember, call for a different...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Since I had the pleasure of writing to you on the 21 Ult. nothing has come within my knowledge worth your notice. The kindness you have already shewn me encourages me to apply to you now matters begin to assume a dangerous aspect. A heedless speech imprudently supported by an Irish young man here, has not only occasioned his own banishment, but also an...
ALS : American Philosophical Society Fearing the miscarriage of a letter I wrote by post to your Grandson upon a Subject of the utmost importance to me, I have seized an occasion kindly procured me by Mr. Carmichael of sending you the present; & this I have done with the greater readiness as it has given me an opportunity of repeating those grateful Sentiments which naturally arise from a...

I have received your two letters of the 17th and 21st Inst. and the papers containing the four numbers of Fabius whih accompany’d them. I must beg you to accept of my best thanks for your polite attention in forwarding those papers to me. The writer of the pieces signed Fabius, whoever he is appears to be master of his subject; he treats it with dignity, and at the same time expresses himself...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Vaughan and incloses him a copy of a letter he has just sent to Dr. Smith. There was so little within his particular knowlege, worthy of being noted in memory of Dr. Franklin, that he communicates it only in proof of his respect for the desire of the committee who did him the honor of calling on him, and of whom Mr. Vaughan was one.
