I hope you will pardon my having sent you revises, instead of clean Sheets of the thing now printing; a freedom inexcusable in any circumstances but mine. I Cannot get my printer to work, although I am actually paying him ready money , as he goes on. So that the whole Sale of the Season will be lost, by the delay of revising the Sheets ! I mention this, Sir, that You may not think me addicted...
I did not, untill this day, know that Your Examiner has not been forwarded to Philadelphia. It Shall be done in future. The Prospect goes off very well to many parts of the Country. About 500 are sent off and many more bespoke, but not yet Sent. A parcel will come to Philadelphia, as soon as the River Opens. Chancellor Wythe is the law officer referred to in the inclosed, as Speaking of The...
For some time past, I have regularly sent you, as far as they were printed, the Sheets of the 2d volume of The Prospect , because I flattered myself that, although neither the Stile nor matter could be exactly conformable to your ideas, or taste, yet that upon the whole, they would not be disagreeable. Whether I was right or wrong, or whether indeed You received my letters, I do not know....
I am Sensible that this freedom needs an [appology]. I wrote You a letter In last month and if nothing can be done, or ought to be done, in one quarter, it is time that I Should be making application, in another, if I can say that I can have another; for I have not only motives of one kind, but others quite different, for not wishing to revisit that sink of destruction Philadelphia; for whose...
I now inclose for you a number of the Republican , along with the last number of the Examiner, Containing a Copy of the Letter from You. Some errata ! The Second Part of The Prospect will be continued in the Republican , and reprinted at Staunton , and all, or part of it, in the national Magazine. I had once entertained the romantic hope of being able to overtake the federal Government, in its...
This letter will inclose a few pages of the second part of The Prospect. They contain nothing but what I fancy that You have seen already, as I sent You regularly the Petersburg paper , wherein they were printed. But next week, I Shall send some Sheets, that You have not seen before. A half volume will be ready, price half a dollar, in about a fortnight. I have by me as much manuscript as...
I inclose two newspapers. I mean to go to Petersburg in 8 or 10 days to begin printing Part 2d of Prospect. We shall have a long article in The Republican on Thursday next. I hope you will excuse this freedom, and I am Sir Your humble sevt P.S. I thought it but justice to send Mr. Adams, under a blank cover, a copy of my address to the Public RC ( DLC ); endorsed by TJ as received 26 Apr. but...
I never write a letter, when I can avoid it. I much less desire to trouble my Superiors. But I received, some days ago, your favour of October 11th. The nature of its contents supersedes the necessity of Saying that it was welcome. I have only to add that some parts of it seem to need an explanation on my part of what brought me here. When You are quite at leisure, what follows will explain...
I hope You will excuse the freedom I took last week of Sending you some Examiners, and a number of the Republican. I now inclose a Continuation. Some errata! This is to be printed again in Staunton , and perhaps in the national magazine and the friend of the people , which will soon go on again, having been only interrupted by that Idle thing the press. And so I am firing through five port...
I am afraid of being troublesome. I wrote you last week with some pages of The Prospect, and now inclose a few more. I expect to have two pieces in tomorrow’s Argus, and a defence of Mr. Coxe in the Examiner. Mr Larkin Stannard of Spotsylvania was here this minute, and says that some of my Subscribers that he got me, were shy of taking the books after they heard of my being imprisoned. It...
