New York January—28. 1819.
|I had no copy of Euler’s Algebra, when I sent you the last|
|box in the beginning of this month. I found one per chance|
|this morning in private hands…2 8vo in boards.||$4.50.|
|I received yesterday the honour of|
|your letter with a note of $20. which was too much|
|by 2 dollars.||2.00|
I send you per mail this day the 1rst vol. of Euler’s Algebra, and next week the 2ond shall be sent. I still owe you the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th vol. of Tacitus.—
As to any good translation of Eschylus and Sophocles, I have none and know none in town. I will try to procure them here or from Europe.
