I have received your letter of the 18th of May, enclosing the Pamphlet & papers which you had the goodness to send me. While I beg your acceptance of my acknowledgments for the polite mark of attention in transmitting these things to me, I flatter myself you will be assured that I consider the subject therein recommended as highly important to Society, whose best interests I hope will be...
Mr Lear who will have the honor of presenting this letter to you has lived many years in my family & is a person for whom I have a particular esteem. Having lately engaged in a Commercial Scheme he goes to Europe for the facility of his Plan & being desirous of visiting some of the principal Manufacturies in Scotland I take the liberty of giving him this letter of introduction to you, being...
Since I had the honor of writing to you last, which, I believe, was by Mr Strickland, I have been favored with two letters from you both bearing date the 18th of July. The one respecting Mr Elkingtons discoveries in the art of draining with the [“]Extracts, and out lines of the 15th Chap: on the subjt of manures” came to my hands just before the meeting of Congress—the other, enclosing the...
A long, and interesting Session of Congress—which did not close until the first day of this month—and the Laws which required to be carried into execution promptly; will, I am persuaded, be admitted as a reasonable excuse for my not writing to you since the 20th of Feby last, agreeably to assurances then given. But what apology can I offer now , that I am about to give you the result of the...
By Mr Bayard (a respectable young Gentleman of this City) who will have the honor of presenting this letter to you, I take the liberty of putting into your hands, a work, which only made its appearance a few days ago. “A view of the United States of America in a series of Papers”. I have not read it yet, and therefore shall say nothing for, or against the merits of it further than that the...
I could not omit so favorable an opportunity, as the departure of Mr Strickland affords me, of presenting my best respects to you; and my sincere thanks for the views of Agriculture in the different counties of Great Britain, which you have had the goodness to send me. and for the Diploma (received by the hands of Mr Jay) admitting me a foreign honorary member of the board of Agriculture. For...
I hope you will have the goodness to excuse the delay which has taken place in transmitting Answers to your queries respecting the Sheep of this Country —agreeably to the promise I made you in a letter which I had the honor of writing to you the 20th of October last. The Session of Congress which commenced the 5th of Nov. and did not close until the 3d of this month, is offered as the...
Since I had the honor of writing to you in June last, I have been favoured with your letters of the 14th & 30th of May and 10th of September; accompanying the additional appendix to the chapter on manures; your address to the Board of Agriculture; and other valuable productions relative to that important subject. For your goodness in sending them to me, I pray you to accept my best thanks and...
The near view which you have of the Revolution in France, and of the political state of things in Europe, especially those of Great Britain, has enabled you to form a judgment with so much more accuracy than I could do, of the probable result of the perturbated state of the countries which compose that quarter of the globe, and of the principal actors on that theatre, that it wd be presumption...
When I last had the honor of writing to you, I had hopes—tho’ I must confess they were not of the most sanguine sort—that I should have been enabled ’ere this, to have given you a more satisfactory account of the business you had been pleased to commit to me, than will be conveyed in this letter. Doubts having arisen, from peculiar calls on the Treasury of this country for money (occasioned by...
I am indebted to you for your several favors of the 15th of June, 15th of August & 11th of September of the last—and for that of the 6th of February in the present year; for which, and the Pamphlets accompanying them, my thanks are particularly due. To say this, and to have suffered them to remain so long unacknowledged, needs explanation. The truth is, they came to hand—the first of...
