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 ).
[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.]
[ 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. ]

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...
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...
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...
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 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...
I asked the favor of Mr. Franklin who lately went from hence to London to send me a book or two which you had published. As he will not have left London when you receive this I will beg the favour of you to procure for me a copy of the small 12mo. edition of Blackstone’s commentaries, published I beleive in Ireland. I would chuse it unbound, because I can then have it bound into one or more...
