Whenever that εγχειριδιον περι την σνμβουλην νομοθετικην , which thou art preparing, shall be published, as i anxiously hope it will be, reserve two or three copies for me. Adieu. RC ( DLC ); endorsed by TJ as received 29 Apr. and so recorded in SJL . εγχειριδιον περι την σνμβουλην νομοθετικην : “Manual of the Legislative Counsel,” or, more literally, “Handbook of the Lawmaker’s Advice.”
The report which you, my much respected sir, sent to me, had been seen and read over and over again by me three weeks ago. Thanks are due for it, and it is deposited among my treasures. RC ( DLC ); endorsed by TJ as received 14 Sep. 1790 and so recorded in SJL
I send you some nectarine and apricot graffs and grapevines, the best I had; and have directed your messenger to call upon Major Taliaferro for some of his. You will also receive two of Foulis’s catalogues. Mrs. Wythe will send you some garden peas. You bear your misfortune so becomingly, that, as I am convinced you will surmount the difficulties it has plunged you into, so I foresee you will...
I wish, my dear sir, to refer the whole business of the seal to your judgment; and if the cost excede the general assembly’s allowance so much as twenty pounds, will advance the money, although they may refuse to reimburse it. My best wishes ever attend you and your connections. A seal of a small size seems most convenient; but I know not the fit size to admit a proper exhibition of the...
Would not the figures to which one must advert in studying geometry, formed of wood, metal, or ivory, be more instructive than those, which are delineated on paper? If you think so, and if such figures can be procured where you are, i wish to know the cost of them, that i may remit money to pay for them, when i will beg the favour of you to send them to me. RC ( DLC ); endorsed: “Wyth George.”...
An apt begining to a letter containing a prescription. Put on sheeps clothing. It will cure rheumatic pains, is comfortable in winter, after one summer not unpleasant in that season, less unpleasant than linen in all seasons, when we perspire freely. Probatum est . You send Kuster for my perusal. I can peruse nothing but court pa pers. This employment by habit is become delectable. In it I...
My neighbour Madison, just now, sent to me a pacquet , which i perceived, by the superscription, to have come from you; a favour little deserved by one who had not writen to you since you crossed the atlantic. I will not say what was the cause of this silence; but can swear, that the cause was not forgetfullness of you, nor want of good will for you. Before i opened the pacquet observing it to...
I wrote to you lately, kind sir, begging the favour of you to direct in every thing about the seal, and undertaking to add twenty pounds to the money allowed for it by the general assembly. The smallest size will be most convenient; and perhaps the figures may be represented on a small as well as on a large one. I pray you to remember me affectionately to all your family, and that you will...
I extracted, thirty years ago, from the journals of the british house of commons, the parliamentary rules of procedure, but left the copy of them among the papers belonging to the house of burgesses, among which a search for it at this day would be vain. Since 1775, I have thought so little of those rules that my memory doth not enable me to supply such of them as may deserve your attention....
Brend tells me he will finish the binding of your books in two or three weeks. The committee appointed to collect and publish the laws relating to land property, seeing your letter , in january, to me, declined proceding in the business, for the present, in hopes the general assembly may be persuaded by the reasons which you suggested to extend the work. Will you permit me to deliver a printed...
