The day before yesterday I took the liberty to trouble you with a few lines by M r. Prentis, & expressed my determination to do it more at large by the next opportunity, which now offers in D r. Bancraft. Knowing my way of thinking you must, I suppose, have been surprised at hearing my return to Europe. The friendship with which you have constantly honored me, ever since I had the pleasure to...
The much esteemed favour you did me the honor to write me the 23 d. ult o. , by M r. Smith, was delivered to me by our noble friend M r. Jefferson. You need not ask me, Sir, what I think of the Massachussets’s Act of navigation; you Know my way of thinking well enough, I hope, & of consequence you can easily conceive how my heart rejoiced in reading it. As you do me the honor to ask my...
Permit me, Sir, to give you my sincere thanks for the Kind letter you have taken the trouble to write to M r. Jefferson on my account. I hope you rec d. of Col. Franks my preceding of the 5 th. inst t. , & would be much obliged to you, Sir, for the testimonial of the British merch ts. I took the liberty in it to ask you for, as well as the other informations, should there by any Virginian able...
The Marquis de la Fayette is just returned from Germany, where he has been in the way of observing, that the many lies & exagerations, which are every where spread to our disadvantage, must be injurious to our national honor, if we neglect contradicting them, as we have done hitherto with too much indolence. I have written already to some of my Friends in Congress, advising them to propose...
I have just been honored with your Excellency’s favor of 15 ult o. , & am extremely obliged to you for your discussions on the several topics therein mentioned. As to News-papers, I beg leave to transcribe for your perusal the conclusion of a paragraph, which Marquis de la Fayette, to contradict a false assertion in which he had been named, sent to several Gazeteers in various parts of Europe,...
I return you my sincere thanks, Sir, for the petition from the City of Bristol in 1775, which I have found here on my return from Holland in the letter you did me the honor to write me the 29 th. of December. It will be of great service to prove, that the conduct of our Countrimen has been & is continually misrepresented. The petition, memorial, or address to the King, or some body else from...
I received in due time, from the Count of Sarcefield, the letter you honored me with, dated 20. ult o. According to your obliging direction, I have perused Hutchinson’s compilation, which the Count had of you & has been so good as to lend me. I have likewise perused Douglass’s, which I have borrowed of M r. Jefferson. I cannot find in any one of them, that “les sauvages devoient être...

I took the liberty to trouble you with a letter by Col. Franks, in which I desired the favor of you to inform me abt. a law of Massachussets, which (according to Mr. Jefferson’s memory) Dr. Franklin told him it was enacted in the beginning of this Century, and tended to discourage the introduction of emigrants. I would be glad to know the epoc, as near as possible, if not exactly; whether the...
The information I have found in your letters has been of a great Service to me, the last of the 1st inst. not excepted, though you suppose in it quite the reverse. I beg you to accept my hearty thanks for it. I have been highly pleased with your undertaking the defence of our governments, especially as I have been assured by Col. Smith that you intend to compleat the work. I am extremely...
I take the opportunity of our good & most worthy Friend Count of Sarcefield to acknowledge the receit of your esteemed favor, dated 12. ultimo. The Bookseller, for whom I wrote you on account of your book, is the same person in whose favor Mr. Jefferson wrote to you. He intends to write to you again on the same subject in a few days, and I think he will unite with me in wishing that you will...
Il nostro degno amico Sigr: Jefferson mi comunicò tempo fa i progressi di Vostr’ Eccellenza nella lingua toscana, e il suo desiderio ch’io Le scrivessi nella detta lingua, ogni qual volta mi prendessi la libertà d’incomodarla, facendo uso d’uno stil semplice e chiaro. Eccomi dunque ad obbedire ai suoi comandi, e secondo il solito per chieder favori. Il Sigr: Jefferson ed io abbiamo pensato,...
I am in great want of a copy of the letter of Lord Carmarthen to you, on the receit of which Congress proposed to the different States to declare void all laws repugnant to the contents in the treaty of peace. You will oblige me much, my dear Sir, if you send it me by the return of the post; if delayed, it won’t be in time. I wrote you some time past an italian letter, which I hope you have...
È comparso alla luce un’elogio dell’Abate di Mably, scritto sotto gli auspici dei 2. vecchi Abati ben noti a Vostr’ Eccellenza, uno dei quali è (a mio giudizio) un gran birbone, e l’altro un buon coglione. Secondo il detto elogio, Vostr’ Eccellenza pregò l’Abate di Mably d’aver la bontà d’illuminare noi poveri ignoranti Americani su i principi di legislazione e d’amministrazione, e quando il...
