Monticello June 23. 25

I thank you Sir for the copy of your Polyglot grammar which you have been so kind as to send me. the comparative view it presents of the grammars of difft languages is curious and useful. I have looked over it with much satisfn and being withdrawn myself from the contempln of metaphysical subjects, (and none is more so than Grammar,) I am happy in having an oppty of placing it at once where it will be most useful, on the shelves of the library of our University. with my thanks for it be pleased to accept the assurances of my great respect & esteem
