I have received within this hour, the Inclosed letter from Mr. Jefferson—Which, as it is infinitely too Learned and scientifical for my dull Genius, and poor attainments to grapple, I send to you—who are, or will be, equal to all these things—If any Man is, or is like to be—I send it especially, as it has relation, to the North American Review—As I have barely read it over, and not yet...
Having after much persuasion prevailed upon my Cousin to remain still longer with us, we were again nearly disappointed by discovering that the Vessel which conveys your things had sailed before her box could be recovered. Our difficulties were now renewed and we could secure an acquiescence in our wishes only by promising that we would make one more call upon your kindness, and request of you...
In compliance with your request, I am directed by the President to return the enclosed letter. As relates to the Letter of General Lafayette, it is his intention to address you as soon as a moment of leisure will permit. Your’s very respectfully MHi : Edward Everett Papers.
It is high time that I should thank you for your kindness and civility to my Grand Children and for your politeness in sending me a Ticket to your lectures. It would have given me more pleasure than any entertainment I can imagin, if I could have attended them. They have been heard with attention and delight by my Son, and by all my friends who have been so happy as to hear them. My more...
I thank you for the copies of your two public addresses inclosed in your favor of the 6 th inst. that of Concord, as a morsel of exact history, and of a most interesting event was peculiarly acceptable. I am sorry it is not in my power to give you any information on the subject of the Louisiana treaty. my memory is gone, and I have no papers on the subject. but surely the ‘Conjectural note’...
I have read with much satisfaction the reply of mr Everett your brother to the criticisms on his work on the state of Europe, and concur with him generally in the doctrines of the reply. certainly provisions are not allowed, by the consent of nations, to be contraband but where every thing is so, as in the case of a blockaded town with which all intercourse is forbidden. On the question...
I have yet to thank you for your Q.C.N. oration delivered in presence of Gen l La Fayette. it is all excellent, much of it sublimely so, well worthy of it’s author and his subject, of whom we may truly say, as was said of Germanicus, ‘ fruitur famâ sui .’ Your letter of Sep. 10. gave me the first information that mine to Maj r Cartwright had got into the newspapers; and the first notice indeed...
I have to thank you for your Greek reader, which, for the use of schools, is evidently preferable to the Collectanea Graeca. these have not arranged their selections so well in gradation from the easier to the more difficult styles. On the subject of the Greek ablative, I dare say that your historical explanation is the true one. in the early stage of languages the distinctions of Cases may...
I am thankful to you, Sir, for the very edifying View of Europe which you have been so kind as to send me. tossed at random by the newspapers on an ocean of uncertainties and falsehoods, it is joyful at times to catch the glimmering of a beacon which shews us truly where we are de Praett’s Europe had some effect in this way; but the less as the author was less known in character. the views...
I am very thankful to the Bunkerhill monument association for the honor they have done me in electing me an honorary member of that institution. the occasion, which has given birth to it, forms an epoch in the history of mankind, well worthy of the splendid ceremonies with which it’s first stone was lately laid and consecrated. the coincidence of circumstances too, was truly fortunate, which...
