I am now about to address you on a subject which I am very apprehensive may be deemed obtrusive and impertinent; for it certainly does not become me to advise you what your conduct should be—as my acquaintance with you does not justify such a liberty, and much less am I justified, from ability to give counsel: but being by my Brother placed under the disagreeable necessity of forwarding the...
Your favor of the 27th. ultimo came duly to hand. The current Cash price of Tobacco is now from 35/. to 36/.—42/. has however been given where it has been opened and approved of; which price I was to day offered for yours in that way—and suppose the person would give it on my receiving an answer from you. I do not think it probable though that you will approve of such a plan, as it operates...
I am desired by Mr. Hanson to request that you will authorise some one to receive of him six bonds of yours which are discharged, as he intends in the course of next month to leave this Country for Europe. he says that he wrote to you upon this subject some time ago, and as he has not since heard from you, concludes his letter must have miscarried. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC (...
Your favor of the 3d. came duly to hand. I will make every exertion to procure the hams you want, but am apprehensive it may not be in my power; as I am informed that such as you describe are seldom to be had in this neighbourhood. I may perhaps however meet with some. Having been told of a Gentleman in Town who has been in the habit of getting hams from Smithfield where I understand they are...
Your favor of the 6th. inclosing a bill of lading for a quarter cask of wine for Mr. T.M.R. together with a bill of Exchange on James Govan for £100—Sterling for the use of Mr. Grymes’s son & daughters under the direction of Mr. E. Randolph—is duly received. Mr. R. proposes to take the bill and to furnish the necessary articles; which from your letter I cannot refuse—altho’ from the manner in...
Your favor of the 12th. inclosing $:50—on my private account is received. I have to-day received a box of dum-fish, and a keg of tongues and sounds for you from New York. I am somewhat apprehensive they should go to Washington, but I cannot suppose if that had been intended, that Mr. Barnes would have directed them to be sent to my care—I shall therefore forward them to Monticello. I concluded...
Colo. Macon having delayed sending in the hams as soon as I expected—and not having been able to get a vessel to take them immediately on their arrival—it was only to day that I put them on board one for Norfolk, to the care of Mr. Warren Ashley our correspondent there, with directions to him to forward them to Mr. Barnes by the very first opportunity. There are nine dozen of them, weighing...
I have to day received of Mr. Creed Taylor $:679.84 in part of Littlebury Mosby’s bond to Mr. Short , of which I have informed Mr. Barnes. Mr. T. expects shortly to receive the balance. Judgment was obtained last Court against Mayo; but he has appealed, with the mere view I suppose of delay. The quarter Cask of wine which you intended for Mr. Randolph was received in my absence, and had been...
We have at length heard from the person in Smithfield (Mr. George Purdie) of whom enquiry was made some time ago respecting hams. Mr. P. is a person remarkable for curing good bacon; he writes that he has not any of his own, but that he thinks he can get from among his neighbours such as will suit your purpose. We have therefore requested that if he can procure such as you describe, he will...
In reply to your note (which should have been sooner answered) I have to inform you that there is no plaister of paris to be got in this place; of course you will have to order it from Philadelphia. I left Edgehill the day before yesterday when Mrs. R. and the family were well. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr.”; endorsed by TJ as...
