Having occasion to make you a remittance in August last , I took the liberty of embodying with it certain sums which I owed to others in Philadelphia , and of asking the favor of you to pay them to the persons on their application. among these was a sum of 15.D. for the editor of the Aurora for 3. years of that paper. I have lately recieved his account by which it would seem either that he has...
I wrote you on the 14 th from Montpelier (the President ’s) requesting you to send on La Croix ’s Course of mathematics, and to procure for me a particular edition of Ovid ’s metamorphoses, which I am now satisfied is Minellius ’s. I have now to request that you will add to these Adams ’s geometrical & graphical essays in 2. v. 8 vo
I have too long neglected to remit you the amount of your account , which I believe is 24. D 68 c the reason has been that I wished to have made up a little catalogue of wants in the same way which has not yet been done; and being about setting out on a journey of a month’s absence, I must defer my catalogue, but in the mean time inclose you an order on mr Vaughan for the above sum. Accept the...
On the 7 th Ult. I inclosed you an order on mr Vaughan for 24. D 68 C the balance of my former account which I hope you recieved.    I have just recieved from M. de la Fayette a request to send him two copies of the Review of Montesquieu published by Duane in 1811. in 8 vo which I must ask the favor of you to procure and send for me. mr
Your favor of May 27. is but just now come to hand, and I write this day to request mess rs Gibson & Jefferson to remit you from Richmond 31.D. the amount of the books, in the hope you may recieve it before your departure for France should you definitively decide to go.    M c kay
Your favor of the 6 th with the MS. accompanying it comes to hand just as I am preparing to set out on a journey of considerable time and distance. I am therefore able to give it but a hasty perusal. this added to my want of familiarity with the technical methods of conveying instruction makes me an inadequate judge of that you propose. I have not indeed heretofore made myself acquainted, but...
I have occasion for the execution of a little commission which will be somewhat troublesome, but your experienced kindness encourages me to ask it of you. it is to get me an English bible, whose printed page shall be as nearly as you can find one, of the size of the paper inclosed, and whose type shall be of such size as that the number of pages shall correspond with the numbers expressed on...

I recieved yesterday your favor of Dec. 16. and hasten by the first return of the mail, to express my mortification that the remittance of 31.D which I had desired Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson to make you in June, and which I had taken for granted was done had however never been done. it must have been ac c identally overlooked by mr Gibson , as in a mass of business happens sometimes with the...

I have duly recieved the Connoissance des tems for 1817. & 1818. two copies *I find on reexamn that it is a single copy of Blunt for each of the years 1817.18. that I have rec d of Blunt ’s Nautical almanac for 1817. and Graglia ’s Italian dictionary. I presume Blunt has not yet published his Almanac for 1818. At the time I recieved your favor of Dec. 16. my account with mess
I recieved last night your two favors of Jan. 30. and all the books have been received as stated in your account . I have now to request you to send me a copy of your dictionary; let the 1 st vol. come first as being most immediately wanting. I have no doubt you are correct as to the 31.D. and that mr Gibson is so also. he has probably charged me on ordering payment, and his correspondent in...
