I received a few days ago your letter of the 4. Instant, enclosing the copy of a bill to provide for the public instruction of youth, and to promote the interest of Agriculture; and requesting observations thereon. I wish I were less incompetent to a satisfactory compliance with the request. The wisdom of providing a system of diffusive education must at once, be universally approved. Of the...
I have recd. yours of the 8th. inclosing the plan of a Work under the title of “Political Economist.” The Science of political Economy has recd. much elucidation from Modern discussion. But it is so important to the prosperity of States, that it merits every further light that can be thrown on it.

I have recd. your letter of the 22d. inst: inclosing a copy of the Law providing for primary schools throughout your State.

I recd. in due time the copy of your Report on a State’s Bank: for which I offer my acknowledgments, with the apology for the delay furnished by the unsettled State of my health. The Report certainly does justice to the plan which it espouses. But I am not yet weaned from the opinion long entertained, that the only adequate guarantee for the uniform and stable value of a paper Currency is its...
I have duly recd. your favor enclosing a Copy of your plan for a "National Bank." Having outlived the period, within which I could venture on the task, of examining & appreciating, the comparative merits of such Institutions, I must limit myself to the remark that the plan you have struck out argues a familiarity with the principles and modifiable materials of Banks, of which you have given...
