I have duly received your favor of the 9th., and am sorry to inform you, that the price of Tobacco still continues low; indeed I apprehend that even the price which Mr. G. informed you he had been offered for yours, could not be now obtained. There has been a very great drouth with us, of which probably you have heard—and which has injured the growing crop I am told immensely: this certainly...
The season being so far advanced that we may shortly expect the new crop of Tobacco to be coming in, which may have an unfavorable effect upon our market—and supposing too from the length of time your last crop has been kept on hand, that you were probably getting impatient to have it sold—I to day concluded to make sale of it to Pickett Pollard & Johnston at 6.¼ $ for their draft on New York...
§ From George Jefferson. 9 November 1805, Richmond. “I was by last post favor’d with yours of the 4th. [not found], and (not being able to exchange a draft agreeably to your wish) now inclose you Pickett Pollard & Johnston’s dft. on Leroy Bayard & Mc.Evers of New York at 50 d/s for $:788. 50/100 ; that being the amount of the balance due on rect. of your Tobo.” RC ( DLC ). 1 p.
I received a few days after its date, your favor of the 7th ultimo, by Mr. Randolph, inclosing 200$. The amount, I would before this have endeavoured to forward in Coal, but that it is difficult to engage a Vessel to take so small a quantity: and I have almost ever since been expecting the President to order his usual supply - in which case, there would be no difficulty. Should you however...
Within a very few days after the date of my last letter to you, I was directed by the President to forward his usual supply of Coal; immediately on which, I gave the order for his, together with yours, to Messrs. Heth & Nicholson, whose Coal is generally supposed to be the best, and requested that they would lose no time in sending it on. I omitted however to desire them to send yours first,...
I have shipped agreeably to your direction 400 bushels of Coal, for which you will receive a bill of lading inclosed. There are 1050 bushels in the same vessel for the President. As Mr. Nicolson informs me that 3 or 400 bushels of the last put in, is entirely in lumps, you had better both begin to receive at the same time, so that each may get a proportion of it. With the greatest respect I am...
I have duly received your favor of the 4th. inclosing a check on the United States branch bank of Norfolk for $:68:50/ 100, which can without difficulty be negotiated through the bank here, and therefore is as convenient a remittance to me as you could have made. I could have drawn on you almost at any time for this sum, agreeably to your direction, but it was so inconsiderable that I delayed...
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 (...
