William Stewart having to day called on me on his way to Monticello, I advanced him $:40—on his shewing me a letter from you in which he is referred to us. I am apprehensive that you employed him on a very slight acquaintance—or else on a recommendation in which you placed too much reliance. He was with me twice to day (once in the morning) and was either much intoxicated, or is actually a...
Your favor of the 14th. is duly received; the mistake of one package which you mention, happened before their arrival here— Mr. G however thought it was a barrel of plaister of paris which was missing—No. 5, & not No. 8, as you suppose—this I hope may still be the case—as the delay in getting that would be less material. The Capt. informed Mr. G. that he received the things from on board...
I sent you a few days ago by Thomas Kindred the articles contained in the memorandum which I brought down with me—together with 4 dozen chairs which came from Philadelphia. I have received of the James River company on acct. of Mr. Short £76.9.1, of which I have informed Mr. Barnes as usual. The Gunpowder you mention shall be forwarded by the first opportunity. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble...
I have paid Mr. Wanscher who will hand you this $:10. on yr. a/c. he takes with him the barrel of plaister of Paris which was left, & a box from Mr. Barnes—I likewise send under his care in one of Henderson’s boats the 50 ℔. of Powder, together with a small box from Philada. I am Dear Sir Yr. very humble servt. 2 Casks 50 ℔. Gun Powder @ 4/6 £11.5.— RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas...
Previous to the receipt of your letter I was applied to by Mr. Heth respecting Coal; he had been informed by a Mr. Davidson of Washington that you would require a supply, and who recommended his furnishing you—which he appears anxious to do. he readily consented to let you have large pick’d coal, and that, at his usual price of 1/. delivered at the landing. I am sorry however to add that from...
I received last night your favor of the 3d. and have in reply to inform you that the present price of Petersburg Tobacco is 4$:, to which it has risen within this week or two from 22/. As I understand the present growing crop will be a very short one, I do not suppose that it will be so low when it comes to market as the article is at this time; and I am therefore inclined to think that this...
I duly received your favor of the 19th and have by to nights post written to our correspondent in Petersburg to make a purchase of the tobacco you require agreeably to your direction. for although it has got up there as I understand to 27/. yet I think it will more probably rise still higher than fall. Mr. Ashley of Norfolk informs me that he has forwarded you some Hams, which I hope will...
The mad-man Stewart is again here. he has called on me for $:105—which I was obliged to let him have, or I supposed suffer him to go to Jail. The Captains a/c against him for six passages &C. was $:75.—& he could not he said do with less than 30 in addition. on my asking him if he had an order he informed me that you told him your former letter was sufficient. Our friend in Petersburg has not...
Not having heard from our friend in Petersburg upon the subject of the Tobacco, I wrote him on the 19th of last month desiring that he would immediately make the purchase, as I expected it would be wanted in a few days. yet I have not yet heard from him! I have written him again to night repeating my request, and write this to you lest you should be as much surprised at my silence, as I am at...
In reply to your favor of the 3d. I have to inform you that the 3 boxes of composition ornaments from Alexandria were received some time since, though not until some weeks after they were shipped—they are still here, as only one boat I believe has gone to Milton since their arrival, and that could not take them. there are likewise some sash-weights & cords, which came from Philadelphia; & also...
