I yesterday received inclosed in a letter from M r Griffin , S. J: Harrison’s dft on G. & J. at 25 days sight for $:2731. 99 100 , which at maturity will appear at your credit.— No more of your flour has arrived.—I rather suppose if you have time to look over our letters, that you will find you have been advised of the sale of the whole of it. As the amount will lie useless in our hands, we...
I inclose your last quarterly account, which shews a balance in your favor of $:207.43.— Eleven of the boxes lately received for you were forwarded by M r Randolph’s boats on the 30 th ultimo , with a Hhd of Molasses.— There were no herrings to be had. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r
I apprehend from your favor of the 27 th that I must have expressed my meaning very badly, respecting my future correspondence with M r M— . I retained no copy of my letter, not having wished to leave any trace behind me upon such a subject.—I was perfectly aware of the absolute necessity of a regular correspondence with him.—I merely meant to say, that I should not like to ask any thing of...
M r Thomas Taylor an acquaintance of mine having lately purchased some land near the West-ham ferry, it occurred to me that he would probably purchase the lots which I recollected to have heard you say you owned there.—On mentioning it to him, I found him very anxious to purchase. As the place can never more be of any value as a landing, unless we suppose the Canal to be abandoned, I conclude...
An absence of more than two months from home, occasioned by ill health, has prevented my having an opportunity of sooner replying to your favor of the 9 th of July, which I am sorry to find had escaped M r Gibson’s recollection.— The window glass mentioned by you (of which though there are two boxes) has been long here, together with four other small packages, all waiting for M r Randolph’s...
Since writing you by this mail, a M r James Scott has called on me, with a few of the papers which must have come out of the lost trunk. M r S. lives within about five miles of Charlottesville , and, having been waiting for some Tobacco which he expected down the river, he concluded to go some miles up it, in the expectation of meeting the boat. He found the papers about a mile above the locks...
Flour having become more & more unsaleable from the date of my last , I found it impracticable to effect any further sale of yours at 9.½ $ in money, and was therefore induced to sell the whole of it (288 barrels) to Brown & Rives at that price, on a credit of 60 days, adding the bank discount.—As however we were not authorised by you to make a sale on credit, we enter it to your account as if...
Sales of 54 Barrels flour made on account of Thomas Jefferson Esq r June 24 th 1811 To W m Mackenzie for Jn o Leslie s note at 60 days vz t
I have duly received your much esteemed favor of the 4 th , for which, if any words were adequate, I would thank you:—From your experience, and from every other consideration which ought to influence govern me, I should have taken the liberty of asking the favor of your advice; but feared I had already taken up too much of your time: upon this subject therefore, I will occupy no more. I have...
Your favor of the 22 d inclosing 100$ is received. I have heard nothing from M r Eppes respecting the volume of news papers.—You sent me with that, a volume of “fugitive sheets” of laws, which you directed should not go out of my possession, and which of course has has not.— I recollect soon after M r Burke ’s death, to have spoken to M
I yesterday received from M r Cha s Johnston on your account, a dft on Mess rs Tompkins & Murray of this place at 10 days sight for 1243$. I have heard nothing yet of Mess rs Shoemaker’s flour.
I inclose your last quarterly account, balanced by $:6024. ⁸⁰⁄₁₀₀ in favor of G. & J. Major Gibbon & myself have been for some days expecting to hear from you, in reply to a letter which he wrote you respecting two Merino Ewes sent you by Doctor Jarvis .—We concluded it was best to defer making the choice as long as we could, as some of them dyed the day after they were landed.—the number has...
I hope that you will have received the trunk N o 28, as it certainly is not here. I thought I had been particular in counting the last packages sent you, but suppose I may have made a mistake, & that perhaps has caused you to make one.—I find from referring to the bill of lading, that there were only 3 trunks, N os 26, 27, & 28.—I have no recollection of having received one at any other time—&...
I find upon attending more particularly to the notes which you forwarded for renewal in the bank, that you have filled up the dates for every two months, without regard to the number of days in the month, & also without regard to the allowance of 3 days grace.—this in the absence both of M r Gibson & myself, might be attended with inconvenience, as the notes as filled up, would not fall due on...
I duly received your much esteemed favor of the 29 th , and should greatly prefer the mode which you are so good as to propose respecting the bond, but I had previously ask’d the favor of Doctor Wardlaw to join in it, who consented so willingly, that I should not like now to leave him out.— I leave this tomorrow for Norfolk , and expect the vessel in which I am to embark, (the Elizabeth Wilson...
Immediately on the receipt of your favor of the 31 st ultimo by T.J. Randolph , (with which however he did not call until Saturday) I waited on M rs Page , and to my surprise was informed, that she had not a spare room, having lately taken two young ladies to board with her during the winter: and that it was therefore out of her power to accommodate Jefferson , unless he could stay in the same...
M r Venable has received notice from M rs Tabb that she will require her money at the expiration of the six months for which it was borrowed.—This will render it necessary for it to be procured from the bank.—As the sum is larger than M r V. wishes to ask for her in one day, I inclose you at his request two notes, which you will be pleased to sign & return, leaving the day of the month blank.—...
As your notes will fall due at the Bank on the 6 th & 13 th of next month, & as M r Venable prefers their being made into one I inclose one for your signature— not knowing whether
Will you have the goodness to inform me if it will not be necessary, previous to my departure to Lisbon , to go to Washington ? It occurs to me that verbal as well as written instructions may be desirable. As yet I have received none, not even an intimation as to the bond which I observe the law requires. I would ask this information of M r Monroe , but I have been too decidedly hostile to...
I have sold your last 54 barrels of flour to W m M c Kenzie at 8.½ & 9$. (5 barrels being fine only) on a credit of 60 days, his note to be endorsed by Jn o Lesslie .—For the reasons before assigned you will be pleased to consider this likewise as a Cash sale. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r
I have received information from a boatman of the name of Calloway , who lives near Lynchburg , that our lost trunk is in the possession of one Dan l Northcut , residing about 5 or 6 miles from that place, in Amherst . C. has not heard particularly what the trunk contains, but was told there were some blank books, and some blank paper in it—he has not heard of the instruments.—he understands...
I inclose you the terms of tuition at M r Girardin ’s Academy, which you will find to be 50 $ ⅌ annum, for a student who is even taught mathematics only: and which, (not that I know any thing about it) appears to me to be very high. I am sorry that I have not been able to procure such a situation in a private family for T.J.R. as you wish.— There are but few French families here in which it...
I have sold your Tobacco to Samuel Myers at 39/6 at 60 days, having had it reviewed, which I found absolutely necessary, as some persons who saw it inspected, said it was of so inferior a quality, that I found I could not otherwise get an offer for it.—I should have done better with it, (Tob o having risen) but most of the stemmed part was very ordinary indeed. You will receive an account of...
You will probably have heard before this reaches you, of my appointment as Consul to Lisbon . I have not yet received the Commission, and hope that the hurry after the close of the Session may cause it to be delayed, until I shall have time to hear from you in reply to this letter: as it would be with extreme reluctance that I should decline accepting of an appointment, obtained by your kindly...
We have received since my last 6 Hhds of your Tobacco.—although it arrived last week, there has been such a quantity coming in, that I was not able to get it inspected until to day.—I am very sorry to inform you that it is so indifferent, I could not get an offer for it at all, the whole of the principal purchasers saying it would not suit them at any price.—one declared it not to be worth...

The two boxes mentioned in M r Gelston’s letter were received, but Major Gibbon called soon after, with a letter from Cap t Tingey of Washington , saying that one of them belonged to him, and had been forwarded to us by mistake.—it is still here, waiting for a good opportunity by which to send it to Washington .—There is no direction on the box, a card appearing to have been rubbed off.— I am...
James sets off with the ewes in apparently good condition: it would be well however for them to be occasionally examined, as I am told that a part of the flock have the scab very badly. I suppose you know that by proper treatment, if taken in time, it may be cured very easily. The Pauler & Aquirrez are distinguishable by the marks P & A with tar.— James likewise carries the goblets, together...
I forwarded your two boxes of window glass by one of M r Craven’s boats on the 26 th As I did not know the man; I was unwilling to trust him with the small packages.
