The universal character of your regard for our national literature, your experience, learning, & talents have constituted in your person a high court of appeal. I am very far from having forgotten, that you were pleased to honor some literary efforts of mine, at an earlier date, with expressions of regard; & these considerations induce me to take a liberty, which little else can justify. I...
I send you herewith the principal documents which have been printed since the commencment of the Session. Should any be omitted, or should there be any information on any point not touched by them, which you may desire, or [ sic ] being so advised, I will communicate it. The Missouri question, as it is call’d, still engages the attention of Congress, & will probably do it, much longer. The...
I am much indebted to you, gentlemen, for your attention and civility in the notice I recieve from you of a cask of garden seeds from Marseilles, supposed to be intended for me. but I think it probable the Capt n was mistaken in supplying from his memory the defacement of the address on the cask. I never had a correspondent in Marseilles but mr Cathalan our late Consul and his successors, and...
I have learned from some Gentlemen in the City of New York, that you are authorised or wish to purchase a Cabinet of Mineralogy for the Central College of your State—should that be correct—I take the liberty of informing you of one that is now for Sale—should not the Legislature of this State now in session purchase it, of which I have but little hopes—the Subject is now before them—It is the...
M r Rodney as my friend, was so good as to send you a copy of the book I have lately published on South America, and it has afforded me high gratification to learn from him, that you have expressed a favorable opinion of it. Being the Chief of the Mission, of which I was the Secretary, I thought that in coming from him, it would bring with it a recommendation which I could not give . I am but...
Your favor of Jan. 20. is just now recieved on the subject of mr Stewart and my portrait. he must have spoken without reflexion when he supposed it in my possession and hanging in my hall. the peculiarities of his temper and ideas render him a difficult subject to handle. in the inclosed letter I have endeavored to bring his recollection to rights as softly as I can. with respect to the 1 st...
The accompanying paper is most respectfully transmitted to Mr Jefferson by the publishers. DLC : Papers of Thomas Jefferson.
The state of my health permits me, but with pain, to write even the short acknolegement of a letter. I am moreover too much unacquainted with the general taste to know what would suit it , or to judge what book would be of ready sale; and I should be sorry to advise an unprofitable one. there is a valuable history of England Baxter’s, which I have long wished reprinted here. it was too...
It would require a longer letter than my health enables me to write, to detail to you the obstacles which have so long delayed the transmission to you of the papers of Gen l Kosciuzko. ill health on my part has had it’s share, unsuccessful efforts to withdraw the original will in the General’s own handwriting from the court in which it was recorded, and other untoward obstacles, have never...
