Permit me, Madam, to lay before you these few lines put together at your request. You may indeed in some sort be considered as the author of them, for the plan is almost entirely your own and the small merit I have to claim in them is merely that of working on your design. They do not vie with the productions of the immortal masters of the art: you will find however as I trust, that they have...
I reached this place, Madam, after a ride of 22 hours. I cannot refuse myself the satisfaction of sending you a few lines; not only because I suppose, it will be the first letter you ever received from here and perhaps the last you ever will, but because I think it the most effectual remedy against being forgotten at the first post. It cannot be supposed that I have in an absence of 22 hours...
I have a thousand apologies to make to you, Madam, for not having troubled you sooner with a line, which to avoid fatiguing you, I omit altogether—In fact I have as yet met with nothing of sufficient importance to deserve your attention and I can hardly flatter myself that you will find any thing here to repay the pain of reading.

Permit me to express to you my ackowledgments for the politeness, with which you were pleased to speak of my Address in your letter of the 4th. I hope you received it as a mark of respect: in any other point of view it was not worth offering.

I beg you to accept my grateful acknowledgments for the very polite notice you were pleased to take of my pamphlet in your letter of the 14th.—Philosophy itself allows us to feel some little pride in the lauderi a laudato viro . I have not read either of the pamphlets you mention and should be very happy to avail myself of your kind offer to lend them to me. I have read the review of Mr. Hay’s...
I return you the pamphlets you were so good as to send me with many thanks. I have derived much pleasure from reading them. Mr. Hay has said every thing, that need be said upon the subject.—I think there cannot be much doubt of a citizen’s right under the law of nature, to quit his country at pleasure and in a case of pure self-defence, (which is really the only case of justifiable war) to...
Mr. Everett . Secretary of Legation in Holland . presents his best respects to Mr. Jefferson with a copy of the Programme of the Haerlem Society of Sciences which he was requested by Dr Van Marum the Secretary of the Society to convey to him. Mr. E. will take it as a great favour if Mr. Jefferson will acknowledge the receipt of the programme by a line addressed to Mr. Everett at Boston . RC
