Tho’ I am apprehensive that you may be fatigued with Letters of Recommendation, yet I cannot suffer the Bearer hereof, Dr Moyes, to leave this City on his intended Tour to the southern States, without requesting Permission to introduce him to your Notice. To General Greene I am indebted for an Introduction to this Gentleman, & hold myself his Debtor for remembering me on the Drs Subject, from...
I have been honoured with your favour of the 25th of April, but have not yet had the pleasure to see Doctr Moyes—On the 22d Instt I shall look for him—I pray you to be assured that, it is unnecessary for you to apologize to me for the introduction of any Gentleman of whom you entertain a favourable opinion; for, such as you may conceive to be worthy of my civilities, will always meet a ready...
I am honored with your Favor of the 15th Inst. & beg you to accept my best Thanks for your polite Attention to my Introduction of Dr Moyes to your Notice, as well as for your Permission of doing the like, in future, for any Gentleman whom I may conceive to be worthy of your Civilities—Of this Permission, however highly I may estimate it, be assured that I shall ever avail myself with great...
I wrote to you on the 24th of last Month, in Answer to the Enquiries you requested me to make, & enclosed the Paper which lead you to make them. I do not find any Reasons to induce me to change the Sentiments I then gave, tho’ I should most readily have done so, had subsequent Information convinced me that they were erroneous. Dr Moyes, who passed thro’ this City a few Days since, confirms me...
The Society for promoting Agriculture, lately established in this City, having done themselves the Honor of electing you a corresponding Member, have charged me with the Care of communicating the same to you. It is with particular Pleasure that I fulfill this Injunction, & doubt not that you, after having so eminently contributed to the Establishment of the Independence of our Country in the...
Consequent of your first letter respecting Mr Vancouver, & his proposed publication, I wrote to him, and declined the honor of his dedication—I thank you for your second Acct of his performance, which confirms me in the propriety of the measure. It would have given me pleasure to have seen a Gentlemn of Doctr Moyes[’]s eminence; and I shall hope for the endulgence of it when he returns from...
The honor which the Society for promoting agriculture, lately established in the City of Philada, have done me by electing me an honorary member, is highly pleasing & flattering to me; the strongest assurances of which I pray you, at the next meeting, to communicate with my respectful compliments to the Society: Accept at the same time Sir, my acknowledgement of the flattering expression, with...
As I am confident that every Thing, that appears likely to be of use to our Country, will be readily promoted by you, I have taken the Liberty of sending you a small Quantity of Wheat imported from the Cape of Good Hope. It is thought to be of a superior Quality & as such may be worth planting for the Sake of procuring Seed. I have planted nearly as much as I have now sent you, in Clumps of...
I have had the honor to receive your favor of the 10th ulto together with the wheat from the Cape of Good Hope; which you were so obliging as to send me by the revd Mr Griffith; for both I thank you. The latter shall have a fair trial in the same inclosure with some presented to me by Colo. Spaight, (a Delegate in Congress from No. Carolina) which had been planted, & had obtained a vigorous...
In looking over the list of premiums proposed by the Agricultural Society of Philadelphia I perceive that those which are offered for the 2d 3d & 4th articles were to have been produced (according to the requisitions) by the 20th instt. Each of these being interesting to a farmer you would oblige me much by giving me the result of the communications, on these heads to the Society if any...
