Paris [ Apr. 1788 ]. Is sending TJ the first volume of “ L’histoire Générale des femmes des nations les plus inconnues ” which follows naturally “ la Galerie universelle des hommes Célèbres ” for which TJ had subscribed. If, after reading this first number, TJ approves of it, he hopes he will be allowed to send the successive issues as they appear each month. RC ( DLC ); 2 p.; in French;...
L’Orient [ Apr. 1788 ]. Ask TJ to intercede for them with the officials of the farmers-general at St. Esprit, near Bayonne, who charged full duty on 40 casks of whale oil which were part of a shipment of 100 casks sent from their free port on 1 Dec. 1787 by the Don de Dieu , Captain Lescanvis, notwithstanding that a certificate from the L’Orient “Bureau de Ville” of the same date stated that...
Dr. Price presents his best respects to Mr. Jefferson, and takes the liberty to introduce to him (Mr. Ashburnham) the young person who is the bearer of this note. He is virtuous, sensible and worthy; and any little notice that it may not be inconvenient to Mr. Jefferson to take of him will be well bestow’d. His business at Paris is only to employ himself there for a few weeks in learning the...
I have the honor to inclose a letter written at the time of its date, but which I have since had transcribed on account of an alteration I have since made in my sentiments. The letter was delayed to allow me time to make experiments, which I have not been able to accomplish. I send the hygrometer I describe in it, somewhat doubtful however of its success. I have the pleasure to add another,...
It is a very long Time indeed since I have had the Satisfaction of a Line from you. Mr. Rittenhouse had a Letter last Fall in which you mention some Books to have been forwarded for him in a Package address’d either to me or Dr. Franklin, but those Books have not come to hand. I have another Gathering of Magazines, Museums, and News Papers for you, waiting a suitable opportunity.—We are in a...
Having considered the Idea which you suggested, of my Son’s going (after visiting Paris, London, and Amsterdam) to Madrid, Lisbon and Italy, I have, this day, written to him, advising to adopt that Plan. I thank you, most cordially, for the very great Attention and Friendship, with which (as he has repeatedly inform’d me) you have been pleased to honour him, and request a Continuance of your...
Your letter of March 29. arrived here yesterday. I see that you have received all the letters I have written. I have not been so fortunate. Your first (from Leyden) never reached me. Yours from Amsterdam of the 13th was the first I received. I have heard no complaints from the convent and consequently suppose your daughters are perfectly well. I know they were so some days ago. Letters by the...
By my Letters to the Count de Bernstorff, and his Excellency’s Answer, you see that my Business here is at an end.—If I have not finally concluded the Object of my Mission, it is neither your fault nor mine: The Powers I received are found insufficient, and you could not Act otherwise than was prescribed in your Instructions. Thus it frequently happens, that good Opportunities are lost, when...
[ Paris, 8 Apr. 1778 1788 . Recorded in SJL Index. Not found.]
Le Havre, 9 Apr. 1778 1788 . Acknowledges TJ’s letters of 3 and 27 Mch.; the latter informs him that TJ is having the Van Staphorsts ship three boxes containing “Iron works” costing 13 guilders; “a Wooden Screw press for Letters” costing 18 guilders, both of which may be imported; and “China ware such as Cups for tea, Coffee and Chocolate” which cannot be imported. Suggests that the Van...
