I purposed, so soon as I understood you intended to become the Publisher of a News Paper in Philadelphia to request that a copy of your weekly production might be sent to me. I was the more pleased with this determination, when, by a letter from my friend the Marquis de la Fayette, I found he had interested himself in your behalf. It has so happened, that my Gazettes from Philadelphia, whether...
I have received your letter of the 30th Ulto —If it should ever be in my power to render you any Service, I shall be ready, & happy to do it.

At present, occupied as I am with my Agriculture &...
In reply to yours of the 20th of this month, I have to observe, that the fragment of the letter in question, supposed to be written by me, is spurious; and that there was a Pamphlet containing a great many letters of the same description published, in New York, at the same time. It should farther be observed that this publication was made soon after several of my letters were really...
