"This is the work of a dying man of extraordinary application and research. But Enfields History of Philosophy will show its glaring imperfections. ..." (Inscribed on verso of half-title).
  JohnAdams | Mar 24, 2008 |
I shall receive and read with great satisfaction the last work of your father as I have done whatever came from his pen. That he undertook the work at my request I have no objection to have known.

(TJ to Joseph Priestley, Jr; December 27, 1804)

I have safely received the volume of Dr. Priestley's works which Mr. Priestley has been so kind as to destine for me. The matter is worthy of its author, and the mechanical execution does honor to the American artists.

(TJ to Patrick Byrne; February 14, 1805)

The branch of the work which the title announces is executed with learning and candor, as was every thing Priestley wrote; but perhaps a little hastily; for he felt himself pressed by the hand of death.

(TJ to John Adams; August 22, 1813)
