[ Paris, 1 Sep. 1784 . L. S., 1 p., Sotheby & Co. Catalogue, 17–21 Dec. 1928, lot 981, “Saying he has asked Mr. Franklin to send him a book or two, now wishes to have Blackstone’s commentaries, which Mr. Franklin will pay for.” Not found and not recorded in SJL .]
I shall have occasion for books and pamphlets sometimes to be sent here and sometimes to America, which will render a correspondent in London in your way convenient. Mr. Adams has been kind enough to promise to direct such pamphlets and new publications to be sent me as he shall suppose will be agreeable. The price of these or of any thing else which I may order for myself shall be remitted...
Th: Jefferson will be obliged to Mr. Stockdale to send him by the bearer, Colo. Franks, the following plates of Cook’s last voiage. Plate.  1. The general map. 36. Map of the N.W. coast of America and of the coast of Asia. 53. Map of the entry of Norton and the streight of Bhering. He means to put these maps into his American Atlas. Mr. Short is just arrived and brings the Parliamentary...
I must beg the favor of you to send me the books underwritten. There is a stage coach established between London and Paris, which comes once a week. I do not know from what house in London it comes, but you will readily learn on enquiry. They not only bring passengers but take in small packages also. This I think will be the best means of conveyance. I pray you therefore to avail me of it, and...
[ Paris, 27 July 1786 . An entry in SJL under this date reads: “Stockdale. 2d copy Mc.Intosh’s travels for M. fayette.” Not found. See TJ to Stockdale 24 July 1786. ]
[Paris, 13 Aug. 1786. An entry in SJL under this date reads: “Stockdale J. inclosing Dr. Priestly’s pamphlet.” Neither the letter nor the pamphlet has been found; the latter may have been one of Priestley’s annual defenses of unitarianism, and it was possibly a French translation of the pamphlet; TJ received Stockdale’s letter of 8 Aug. on 13 Aug.]
Your letter of Aug. 8. with the books accompanying it came safely to hand, as did the reviews for August, and Priestly’s pamphlet lately sent. I now trouble you for the books written below. I write by this post to Colo. Smith for a number of books from Lackington’s catalogue for 1787. I wish those, with yours, could come in one parcel, as, coming separately, they occasion double trouble with...
I have sent by the Diligence the three first numbers of Sandford et Merton, being all which has yet appeared. A number comes out every month, and it will be nine months before the whole will be out. You shall receive them as they appear, and always by the Diligence unless you would prefer any other channel of conveyance. I am Sir your very humble servt., PrC ( DLC ); endorsed. It will be noted...
I will thank you to send me by the Diligence Sterne’s works complete, 5. vols. 12mo. published by Cadell 1780. I name this edition because it brings all his works into the smallest compass of any one I have seen. If you know of any edition still smaller I would prefer it, elegantly bound. A friend here has desired me to procure there two peices of Pope, viz, ‘Happy the man whose wish and care...
You have two or three times proposed to me the printing my Notes on Virginia. I never did intend to have them made public, because they are little interesting to the rest of the world. But as a translation of them is coming out, I have concluded to let the original appear also. I have therefore corrected a copy, and made some additions. I have moreover had a map engraved, which is worth more...
