I have duly received your favor of Apr. 3 with the copy of your General Geography, for which I pray you to accept my thanks. My occupations here have not permitted me to read it through; which alone could justify any judgment expressed on the work. Indeed as it appears to be an abridgment of several branches of sciences, the scale of abridgment must enter into that judgment. Different readers require different scales according to the time they can spare, & their views in reading, and no doubt that the view of the sciences which you have brought into the compass of a 12° volume will be accommodated to the time & object of many who may wish for a but very general view of them. (TJ to Horatio Spafford, 14 May 1809)
