RECOMMENDATIONS OF LAVOISNE'S ATLAS.

IVashington, 18th July, 1820. Dear Sir-In reply to your letter of this date, requesting my opinion of the general merits of " Le Sage's Historical ATLAS," and of the propriety of publishing in this country a correct translation of it, I take great pleasure in assuring you, that I consider it the most successful effort of the age, to facilitate the acquisition of historical, genealogical, chronological, and geographical inforınation.

In this admirable work, the great cvents which, from the earliest ayes, have changed tive civil and political condition of unan, and ultimately led to the existing state of human society, are not only described in strong and appropriate language, but so clearly and distinctly delineated upon maps, that the mind of the student, without an eta fort, comprehends, at a glance, their case, the means employed in their accomplishment, and their remote effects. By this bappy device, the senses are, in a degree unknown to any other work of the saine general nature.--employed in aid of the understanding and memory, and greatly advance the progress of the studenta

I have, for several years, ardently wished that some enterprising individual would furnish the American youth with the means of profiting by this able work; and am happy that it has at last been undertaken by one whose talents and perseverance cannot fail to command the most complete success.

I remain, with sentiments of the highest respect, your most obedient servant,

WM. H. CRAWFORD. The Rev. Mr. WeeMS.

Ballimore, Nov. 22d, 1820. DEAR SIR--The reputation of LE SAGE's Atlas is too well estab lished to require any certificate of inerit froin me; yet, since you dcsire it, I have no difficulty in stating my concurrence in the universal opinion of all who have examined the work, that it is one of great va. lue, most happily conceived and ably executed. It is a luminous sysiopsis of all the great events of history, which are not only written to the understanding, but painted to the eye. It is an epitome of the history of the human family, from the creation of the world; which, by the ingenuity of Mr. Le Sage, has been brought under a single cuup. d'wil; the chronology most happily arranged, and the march of empire and revolution reduced to a geographical picture. The work is one of such incalculable advantage to the student of history, and of such constant practical utility as a work of reference, that I am much gratified with Mr. Carey's proposal to give an improved translation : of it to the public, and very sincerely wish him the success which so weil selected a publication deserves. With great respect, I am, sir, your obedient servant,

WM. WIRT. The Rev. MR. WEEMS.
