I had been so long without hearing from you ( my last from you being dated Oct. 8. 24.) that I sat down to communicate my anxieties to you which I had accdly done in a long letter when the mail of that day brought me your’s of Apr. 13. and rendered mine of course useless.

Aug. 26. and Nov 10. the accident which delayed the reciept of the bill of exchange for M. and M e Pini has been the subject of infinite regret and mortification to me; there being nothing on which my attention is more religiously fixed than on the punctual remittance of the annual interest due...
Your favor of Oct. 10 did not come to hand until Mar. 6.

Since mine of Sep. 3. I have recieved yours of Aug. 23. Sep. 4. & 10. the two Raggis are now at work with us. they could not in the beginning break themselves at once to the great differences of habits manners, living, & language here from those to which they had been habituated all their lives. they are now however much more contented, and I think they have made up their minds to continue a...

The original letters of Oct. 8. and 9. of which those inclosed are Duplicates were committed to Michael Raggi, who about that time left this place for New York where he expected to embark for some port of Italy. we soon learnt that at N. York his funds fell short so that he could not get a passage; we therefore did not then make the remittance of 4000 D. as mentioned in my letter of the 8 th...

Your letters of Aug. 26. and Oct. 25. have been both recieved. the condition of my friend Mazzei , both of body and mind, is really afflicting. of the former he had given me some account himself, of the latter I was unapprised, altho’ his very advanced age, with such bodily infirmities, might have given room to expect it. it is unfortunate too that persons in that situation are themselves the...
The first article of the Arret of Dec. 29. permits expressly the importation of Spermaceti on paying the duty of 7 -10 the Quintal and 10. sols the livre, and the general laws of the kingdom allow the importation of cotton spun for cambric at 20 the Quintal. I should think it adviseable to tender these duties: if they demand any others, they should produce the law authorizing it. I suppose...

From a desire that our letters respecting the affairs of the University, as being to be placed on their files may be kept distinct from what respects myself personally, I place in this letter separately the information that I have put into Col o Peyton’s hands the sum of 444.D. for M. and M de Pini, which he will include in the bill with the 861.D. for the University.

I will repeat therefore from that letter only a single article. it informed you that ‘I had put into the...

I am this moment, and at this place called on to sign and send off a passport for the Leonidas bound to Algiers with naval stores on public account. I do not know that she will touch at Leghorn, yet as she possibly may, as opportunities are now so rare, and she, as a public vessel, may pass unmolested, I avail myself of the occasion of desiring you to be so good as to send me a supply of wines...
