In consequence of the long and earnest desire of my son Walter , to enter the Navy, and the advice of his friends seconding his views, I have consented to gratify him— Presuming on the friendship which subsisted between yourself and his father, Meriwether Jones , I will take the liberty of requesting your assistance in procuring him a Midshipmans warrant—his friends are respectable and...
I believe I told you in my last , that I had given you all in Lindseys Memoirs, than that interested you. But I was mistaken. In Priestleys Letter to Lindsey Dec r 19. 1803 , I find this Paragraph “With the Work I am now composing I go on much faster and better than I expected; so that in two or three months, if my health continue as it now is, I hope to have it ready for the Press; though I...
I have satisfied myself, by a great number of experiments, that the influence of cold upon the skin, is the most universal cause which places the system in a state of predisposition to disease. I have also ascertained by experiment hundreds of times repeated, that a timely application of intense heat to the surface, will correct the predisposition, and prevent disease, even when sternly...
You had a right to expect to hear from me ere this on the su b ject of a paiment. but I am one among the unfortunate who have been caugh t by the blockade before the sale of my flour. I have between 4. & 500. barrels now in Richmond , & not a barrel sold. I have desired mr Gibson to hold up for 7.D. thro’ this month, but then to sell for whatever he can get. the moment I hear from him that he...
I trust you will excuse the liberty I take—in having the honor to enclose you the within letter—as it contains money I was fearfull it might miscarry—is the cause why I trouble you— RC ( MHi ); dateline beneath signature; addressed: “Thomas Jefferson Esq r Monticello —near Milton—V a ”; franked; postmarked 28 July ; endorsed by TJ as received 30 July 1813 and so recorded in SJL . Enclosure not...
It is now a year since I have had a letter from M r Hawkins ; he was then, and had been some time engaged as an Engineer, and had undertaken two very stupendous works: one of them the constructing a Tunnel under the River Thames about eleven miles below London , which he had nearly compleated. The other was a Tunnel through Shuters hill , about eight miles from London , to level the eastern road.
we have to acknowledge thy favour 11 th current— ; in our reply to thine, of 3 rd Ins t ; (which we hope thou hast receivd;) we stated, what we supposd must be the cause of thy Carder not performing to satisfaction; and the way, we hoped, to remedy it.—we regret, exceeding, that thou has found so much dificulty; with thy machine;—we had tried it before we sent it on; and fully believed it...
I find there is to be a “physician” general of the arm. of the U. States —I have the vanity to think, that I am not entirely unqualified for that important place, by my age, my experience in practise, & my long experience as a teacher of a “practical” branch of medicine. Perhaps, I have some claim upon the government, as a steady supporter, so far as I can go, of the measures of the executive....
I duly reciev’d thy verry able letter of the 13 th In s , and have greatly to regret that the public had not been possessd of the views thou hast there taken of the subject, before the late trial of O Evans v s Sam l Robinson in the circuit court at Baltimore —had it been the case, the result of that trial must have terminated the question betwe e
your favour of the 15 th came to me yesterday, and it is a pleasure to discover that We are only 9 days apart. Be not Surprised or alarmed. Lindsays Memoirs will do no harm to you or me. you have right and reason to feel and to resent the breach of Confidence. I have had enough of the same kind of Treachery and Perfidy practiced upon me, to know how to Sympathize with you. I will agree with...
