Your favor of the 28th Ult. came duly to hand, as did the other of June. With great pleasure I received the intimation of your spending the Winter under this roof. The invitation was not less sincere than the reception will be cordial. The convention shall be, that in all things you shall do as you please—I will do the same—No ceremony shall be observed—nor any restraint be imposed on any one....
I thank you for your letter of the 30th Ult. It came by the last Post. I am better pleased that the proceedings of the Convention is handed from Congress by a unanimous vote (feeble as it is) than if it had appeared under stronger marks of approbation without it. This apparent unanimity will have its effect. Not every one has opportunities to peep behind the curtain; and as the multitude often...

Dieppe, 10 Oct. 1787 . In accordance with TJ’s request of 5 Oct. he has obtained, not without difficulty, a statement of tobacco received, which, however, does not include the shipments which have arrived for the account of Le Normand and Le Couteulx. Is unable to give an exact count of American and French ships. There are very few of these, but there are a large number of English ships flying...
Frontignan, 10 Oct. 1787 . Has been informed by his banker, Cabanis, that he called on TJ to present Parent’s bill for 374. 14s. and while he was there TJ praised the wine he had received from Parent to a nobleman who was also present; Cabanis offered to transmit an order for the gentleman but the latter refused, wishing to order direct; urges TJ’s friend to order at once because there is...
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...
