I had written the preceding letter yesterday, but it had [not] yet gone out of my hands when I received yours of the 11th. inst . I must refer you to my letter of Oct. 10. 1787. for an explanation of the credit I state on the next leaf for Watson’s Phil . III. as also for the maps. All I wished as to the maps was to avoid loss, which I shall not do, charging you 10d. a piece instead of 1/ a...
In my former letters I mentioned to you that not knowing exactly the balance I owed you when I set out from this place for Amsterdam, I had remitted from Amsterdam a bill of exchange to Mr. Trumbull praying him to pay you 15£ out of it. As I did not recollect his address, the letter was inclosed to Sr. Robt. Herreis, who not being able to find him returned it to my bankers in Amsterdam, with...
I must still refer you to my letters of Sep. 10. Oct. 10. Jan. 1. and Jan. 16. to which I have no answer except yours of Feb. 22. promising an answer. Lest your account should come during my absence in Holland and Germany, I remitted you from Amsterdam £15. sterling through Mr. Trumbul. I imagine you have not sent the books hearing that I was on a journey. To those desired in the letters above...
I wrote you on the first day of this month, and hope you will have received the letter. To the books I then desired, be pleased to add Volney’s travels thro Egypt, Syria & c. printed by Robinson; The history of the internal affairs of Holland since 1783, printed also by Robinson if I recollect rightly. Send them in boards. I am with much esteem Sir Your most obedt. humble servt., PrC ( DLC ).
I wrote you last on the 10th. of October, and having received no answer to my letter, I presume it must have miscarried and therefore send you a copy of it on the adjoining leaf. To this I take the liberty of referring you as to it’s contents. I must press the immediate sending the plate of my map, as the bookseller here had not struck off his whole quantity, and apprehends he shall suffer if...
Your favor of Sep. 21. inclosing your account came safely to hand. I observe one error in it, a History of Philip 3d. charged as a quarto edition 25/. whereas it was the 8vo. edition in 2. volumes which I presume was cheaper. Also the 34. copies of the Notes on Virginia £9–1–4. for which I have no objections to be answerable when the bookseller shall have sold them, but not before. With...
Perceiving by your favor of Aug. 31. that the 1st. vol. of le Petit Grandison has miscarried I went to the bookseller’s and have got it supplied. You will receive therefore with this letter the 1st. and 3d. vols. of le Petit Grandison, and the 10th. of the Friend of youth, which are the last. What comes out hereafter shall be forwarded as soon as it appears.—You may remember that some numbers...
The books you have last sent me are this moment come to hand, and all right except that the ‘Historical remarks on the taxation of free states’ printed by Richardson 1781. is not among them. I will still trouble you therefore to send it by some opportunity. I thank you for the dozen copies of the Notes on Virginia. The remaining 34. shall be sold so as to pay the 8d. sterl. a vol. their...
Not hearing any thing yet of the books which should have come from Lackington’s and from yourself I suspect they may be lying in the warehouse of the Diligence in London, perhaps forgotten, and will beg the favor of you therefore to send there for enquiry. Send me if you please a copy of the American Atlas, latest edition and one of Mr. Adams’s books on the American constitutions. Note the...
According to the desire expressed in your last letter I send you a book which has just appeared, of the instructive kind and fit for children. It is entitled ‘a complete course of instructions and anecdotes by Father Berenger,’ 2.v. 12 mo. Having little time to read I have been able to peruse only about 30. or 40. pages, and so far it appears to me to be one of the best things I have ever seen...
