I have not only Arms but a large proportion of Armourers to make.


I can make just such ones if I had tools, and I could make tools if I had tools to make them with.


I have now taken a serious task upon myself and I fear a greater one that is in the power of any man to perform in the given time-but it is too late to go back.


I have always believed that I should have had no difficulty in causing my rights to be respected.


You are undoubtedly acquainted with my Reputation, and as for my Penmanship it must speak for itself; this is to desire your Approbation to keep a public school.


One of my primary objects is to form the tools so the tools themselves shall fashion the work and give to every part its just proportion.
