I have recd. your favor of Jany. 26. with copies of the addresses of the Philada Societies for the protection of the National Industry; for which I return my thanks. Such a mass of valuable information on a subject deeply interesting to the public must be acceptable even to those whose opinions would qualify some of the inferences deduced from it. The occasion reminds me of the...
I have received your letter of the 16th. inst: which was followed by the printed Sheets to which it referred. Of these I can not say less than that they exhibit the same extent of statistic research, the same condensation of ideas, and the same tone of disinterested patriotism, which have been remarked in other publications from the same pen. The subject which they discuss has been so ably...
I have received your letter of the 1st. inst. and am sorry that neither my memory, nor my knowledge goes far enough back to furnish the desirable answers to your questions, whether and to what amount, the balance in the trade with G. Britain was against the colonies, particularly Virginia previous to the Revolution. That the ordinary balance was unfavorable cannot be doubted, and the limit to...
I have recd. the copy of the “Appeal to common sense and common Justice” which you were so good as to send me. And I have since received one of your letters inviting observations on it. It would be impossible for me to do justice, even to my own view of the subject within the time limited, were the attempt permitted by engagements of other sorts. It is I believe not unknown to you that I...
An absence from home with some pressing avocations since my return have delayd. thus long my acknowledgment of your’s of the 3d. inst; and of the pamphlet on our commercial policy, which is another proof of your disinterested zeal on an important subject. You have placed in a strong light the evils necessarily resulting from the excess of our importations over our exportations, and the...
I have recd. your letter of the 21st. inclosing two numbers of your new Series of papers; & I wish I could in return furnish the desired information on the subject of Tobo. planting in Virga. The labour & land employed on the culture of Tobo. are so blended with what are employed on other crops, and the cultivated land moreover bears such various proportions of quantity & value, to the...
Yours of Feby. 28. was duly recd. with the pamphlet referred to; and I add to my thanks for it, those due for the several previous communications with which you favored me. They afford continued proofs of the ability & public spirit which you have exerted on the subject them and I can not be insensible to the friendly & flattering terms in which you invite a public exposition of my views of...
Your letter of June 5th. in behalf of Mr. Saunderson came duly to hand. I have so much confidence in your judgment of his character & scholarship, that I should feel a pleasure in forwarding his views of turning them more to his own account as well as that of others. But I know too little of the condition or wants of the Seminaries in this State, other than its Embryo University, to venture on...
I have recd. your favor of the 22. Ult: with the several printed Sheets sent with it. It is very gratifying to observe the prospect of internal improvements expanding as it is under the emulating auspices of the several States, and the co-operating patriotism of enlightened Citizens. No Country more than ours admits of improvement by artificial roads & Canals; nor can it be doubted either that...
Since the receipt of your two letters of the 5 & 6th. of Ocr. a third with additional proofs in the manufacturing cause, has called for my acknowledgts. I now pray you to accept them for the whole year. Your second letter arrived in time for the destruction of the documents accompanying the first; and I have disposed of the corrected ones as occasions offered. I shall do the same with those...
Your favr. of Apl. 12 came duly to hand, with the little pamphlets accompanying it: for which I return my thanks with the arrears due for those formerly sent me. Having never read the Memorial of the Boston Merchants, and may not be an admitted Judge of the performance your facts, & the remarks founded on them certainly press very hard on the authors. Your letter just recd. recommending Mr....
I recd. the pamphlet with which you lately favored me whilst I was in Richmond where the attention due to it was prevented by that demanded by my public situation. I can not now return my thanks without alluding to the impression made by the ability which pervades the several articles composing the publication. The views presented in som of them cannot fail to have a favorably effect in the...
private I have recd. your favour of the 21st. with your commencing address to the Citizens of S. Carolina. The strange doctrines and misconceptions prevailing in that quarter are much to be deplored; and the tendency of them the more to be dreaded, as they are patronized by Statesmen of shining talents, and patriotic reputations. To trace the great causes of the State of things out of which...
