Your letter of the 2d: has been duly received, and has contributed with those of your father received at the same time to cheer my mind, which every thing of a political nature around me struggles very hard to depress—Hitherto since my arrival here, I have thank Heaven enjoyed much domestic comfort from the health of my wife and children—this has been more favourable than I ever knew before,...
I duly received your letters of the 21st: enclosing the pamphlet of Gentz, and likewise the post-note, with your account—This last I have not yet examined, but I presume it to be substantially correct.—I am again to repeat my thanks for your attention to my affairs. I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon here, though I hope also that the tremendous menaces of malignant yellow fever at...
Since my last letter to you, I have not had the pleasure of receiving a line from you—I have it not yet in my power to unpack my books, and consequently not to take out and send you those belonging to you. But I have sent you a set of the Massachusetts Laws, and a copy of the translation from Bülow, by the Sylvia; Captain Seth Daggett, who has already sailed, and will probably reach...
We have so little business on hand that it was not thought necessary to commence the year with a Session for transacting it; and this morning we have adjourned for the purpose of letting the Tunisian Minister come and pay us a visit; I cannot employ the leisure of the moment better than in answering your letter of the 15th: and 16th: of last Month. Your opinion of the Message will probably not...
The apt and excellent quotation from Horace’s epistles, in your letter of 26th: ulto: made me turn over all the editions and translations of the old poet, that came within my reach, to find the context—When once a man takes up Horace, it is not easy to lay him down again—So in turning over the leaves I stumbled by the strangest accident imaginable upon the fourth Ode of the second book—But...
I enclose my third letter upon the book concerning the State of France. I know not whether I shall have time to finish this examination, & my project of furnishing you with frequent articles upon foreign politics & literature, will of course cease by my recall, which I have now received. As I suppose it was known to you, some days after it took place, you will probably not write to me again,...
I have two letters from you of the 18th: and 28th: of last Month to answer—And since the receipt of the last have also received from Shaw, a copy of Selfridge’s trial—It corresponds very accurately with your abridgement, excepting only the Article of Mr. Dexter’s argument with which I confess I have been much disappointed—It is professedly much compress’d in the printed trial, from what it was...
As I have promised to make this the last of my letters to you upon the subject of Silesia, you will not be surprized that it is somewhat desultory & miscellaneous; though its contents will all have reference more, or less remote to the state of literature & science in the province, a subject naturally connected with those of my two last letters, & by its interest & dignity well entitled to...
I must request you to sell my 3600 dollars of Stock in the Bank of North America, at as good a price as you can obtain, and remit me as speedily as possible the proceeds; retaining in your hands as much as may satisfy all your demands against me, and all demands which may be made to you on my account—I say remit me the proceeds as speedily as possible , because I am in very great want of money...
I have occasion to draw bills of exchange to the amount of about one thousand pounds sterling upon Messrs: Bird, Savage and Bird in London, and it appears by the newspapers that exchange on London is higher at Philadelphia than it is here—The bills will be at sixty days sight—If you can get any thing above par , or even par for such bills, to that amount, let me know by the return of the post,...
