I should not so often intrude, Sir, on your time, if the circuitous route I am compell’d to adopt, render’d less uncertain the conveyance of letters to the U’States, for all direct communication, has long since been suspended.—On intimation being given me that exequaturs under the new government would be requir’d from the foreign Consuls here, I applied to mr Armstrong, to know what steps I...
I had the honor of addressing you on the 24th. of December by the ship Minerva Captn. McCray for New York, covering at the same time a letter from Mr. Mazzei since which, I have received the garden: seeds from Malta I then mentioned, and now forward them herewith.

By the Ship Jane Captn. McCarthy, which sail’d from hence on the 20. of march for Baltimore, I sent to the care of mr Christie collector for that port, three hundred & fifty bottles of Montepulciano wine, to be by him convey’d to you. I hope it has been found excellent of its kind, as the last vintage in that part of Tuscany was uncommonly good; and it was shipp’d for America at a Season, when...

I am happy to inform you that Mr: Mazzei is absolutely recover’d from the violent fever under which he suffer’d when I last wrote you.—When I saw him his physicians had given up all hope of his recovery, but to the general astonishment of every one, in three days he was in a State of convalescence. Every medical aid was afforded him, but my own opinion is, that he is indebted for his recovery...
About five years since I requested my brother in law Samuel Emery of Philadelphia to make enquiry for a certain Carlo Bellini, a tuscan by birth, and who left this country nearly forty years ago for Virginia.—By information he rec’d from you Sir; it appear’d, that this person was then professor of languages in St. Mary’s college, and a short time after, a letter was handed me from Bellini...

By the same vessel you will receive, Sir, a...
