I have promised in this letter to give you some account of the institutions in the province of Silesia, for the education of youth. The university at Breslau, and the academy of nobles at Liegnitz, I need not mention, having noticed them in my letters at the time when we visited those places. Besides these, there are what we call grammar schools, where latin is taught in almost every town in...
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...
While I was sealing up on the last post-day, the cover to Mr: Pitcairn, of my number 29, I received two packets from you, containing three copies of the translation, and the three first numbers of the Port-Folio, with a couple of newspapers besides—Your few lines of January 23d. were in one of the packets; and the next day came to hand your N. 23. of January 15th: The packets are marked as...
I have not written you a line since my return to Quincy. I have found full employ to get my House in order, and my Family arranged, against your Fathers return which was on Wednesday last; we have all once more assembled at the old Habitation in Safety, without any accident, except to myself. I unfortunatly, got my foot in a hole in one of the carriages as I was getting out, and fell through,...
I now enclose together with a press copy of my last letter to you, the original of one addressed to your father, containing observations upon a french pamphlet, which I have sent him. This letter however is not to be sent to him, but to be published in the Port Folio, if the Editor thinks proper. Of course, without indicating either the writer, or the person, to whom it is addressed—My design...
I received last evening your letter of 31. January, enclosing your annual account and a copy of Dr: Tufts’s. With this punctuality, as well as with your management of my affairs in general I am very well satisfied. With regard to that portion of my property which had become desperate or precarious before it came into your hands, I only wish you not to remit your attention, though I am far from...
You will receive enclosed with this, a duplicate of my letter, relative to your annual account, and a literary letter of this date, containing an account of an interview between Frederic 2. and the poet Gellert, which I hope will amuse you.—If you chuse, it may be published as one of the letters on various topics of foreign literature. At the same time with your accounts, I received a couple...
I know not how it has happened that I have not found time to write you Since my return to my long home. The angry North East Wind, which has prevailed with little Interruption has pinched my faculties, I believe. We have been all, pretty well. This is the Day of our Election of Governor, Lt Govr. & Senators. The Democrats are very Sanguine and the others are not So. The former Say that Mr...

You have here a triplicate of my letter respecting your account—a duplicate of the conversation between Frederic 2. & Gellert. And the first number of a series, in which I purpose to review an important late french work, which I shall send to your father. It seems to me as if the frequency of writing shortened the distance between us. But you will not complain if it likewise sometimes shortens...
