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...
Finding on my return to this place that the bookseller to whom I had committed the plate of my map, instead of keeping it only a fortnight, had not yet delivered it to be forwarded to you, I demanded an instantaneous delivery of it. A thousand evasions have led me through three weeks, so that it was not till yesterday that I could obtain it, threatening on the return of my messenger without...
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...
[ 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 embrace with pleasure the opportunity by my sons of presenting you many thanks for your kind Letter and obliging present, of an elegant sett of your new edition of the history of Republic’s. I know not whether experience of the evils, physical, moral & political of simple Governments, will recommend to the public my poor speculations in favor of mixed forms, so as to give you a profit by the...
[ 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 .]
Your Favour of the 20 th. was Sent me last night, and put me into a Fit of good Humour which continues to this moment. The Letter containing the Medals, I beg you to open and deliver one set to M r West and another to M r Whiteford, in my Name.— You will please to make a Minute of the Postage you pay for me, which I will remit you. The Hares were well disposed of, and I hope gave Pleasure to...
By the Diligence of tomorrow I will send you a corrected copy of my Notes, which I will pray you to print precisely as they are, without additions, alterations, preface, or any thing else but what is there. They will require a very accurate corrector of the press, because they are filled with tables, which will become absolutely useless if they are not printed with a perfect accuracy. I beg...
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...
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...
