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. I have heard nothing yet of M r Shoemaker . RC (Mrs. T. Wilber Chelf, Mrs. Virginius Dabney, and Mrs. Alexander W. Parker, Richmond, 1944; photocopy in ViU : TJP ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r
The goblets received of Letellier are in one of the small packages mentioned in my last. one of the others I am told contains a Map from M r Robertson of Orleans .—the remaining two are paper packages, one of them appearing to contain books. RC ( ViHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r ”; endorsed by TJ as received 16 Sept. 1810 and so recorded in SJL
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...
The nail rod which you have so long expected, and which was shipped from Philadelphia the 12 th of last month , was only received a few days since. It was forwarded to day by a M r Fitch , to whome we had to pay 12/. on account of the carriage. I inclose you a note for your signature, with which to renew the one in the bank. I likewise inclose you a
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
I duly received your favor of the 15 th inclosing 200$, which amount is remitted to Jones & Howell agreeably to your direction. Some plaister of Paris has just arrived for you. I do not know the quantity, the Captain not having called for his freight, & we not having received a bill of lading.—I suppose it to be 4 or 5 Ton. Is it to go to Monticello , or to Bedford ? and if to the former, is...
I yesterday received from M r Cha s Johnston on your account, a dft on Mess rs Tompkins & Murray of this place at 10 days sight for 1243$. I have heard nothing yet of Mess rs Shoemaker’s flour.
I have duly received your favor of the 7 th inclosing Mess rs Shoemaker & Son’s conditional dft on G. & J. for 200$.— As we have heard nothing of their flour, have never transacted business for them at all, and know nothing of them, except of their bad manageme n t at your mill, we of course cannot become responsible even for this small amount, until we have something actually in hand.— As...
I have duly received your favor of the 15 th inclosing 125$, which is entered to your credit with G. & J. Your two notes of 4000$ each have been discounted at the bank, and the one to M r Venable for the 8000$ borrowed of M rs Tabb , taken up of course. RC (Mrs. Paul W. Howle, Richmond, 1944; photocopy in DLC
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...
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...
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 some days since sent on your two dogs by Thomas Becks , having paid him 2$ for their feed, & for his trouble in carrying them up—as he said he was short of provisions, & had nothing to spare them. he promised to feed them well, & to take great care of them. I likewise forwarded by Becks the stolen trunk. I have not heard the particulars of the trial, but am told that the thief was sentenced...
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
It really almost appears as if I shall never more have the pleasure of seeing you at Monticello . M r Gibson when I last wrote you, had not the most distant thought of going to the Springs this season—not having experienced as he supposed; any benefit from his visit the last.—He has suddenly however, by the advice of some of his friends, determined on making one more trial, and is gone. I now...
M r Venable is now of opinion that M rs Tabb will not require her money when due, but that she will let you have it for another 6 months.—Of this however he is not certain, but requests me to forward you the inclosed note, in case it should be wanted—and which shall be returned, if it is not. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r ”; endorsed by TJ as received 20 July 1809 and so...
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...
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.—...
If you go to Bedford as soon as you contemplate, you will be surprised I expect at not finding the 3 dozen chairs there, which you ordered several months ago.—The first person who engaged to make them disappointed us altogether, & the next one has been a long time about them.— They are however at last ready, and shall be forwarded by the first safe boat, to the care of Sam l J. Harrison RC (...
I have duly received your favor of the 12 th , and have selected the house of Gordon Trokes & Co , as being the most eligible in my opinion for the supply of your groceries.—They consent to receive payment half annually, which is more I expect than any other house here would do for such articles. I doubt however if you will be supplied even on nearly as advantageous terms, as you might be from...
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...
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...
I send you by M r Randolph’s boat two boxes which we have lately received.— There is some nail rod & bar iron which I had reserved, but Ben cannot carry it.—If you find you will require it before M r R’s boats will be down again, be pleased to inform me, that I may forward it by others. RC ( MHi ); endorsed by TJ as received 4 June 1809 and so recorded in SJL .
Your favor of the 1 st leaves me no hope of recovering the trunk N o 28.—it confirms me in the opinion that I sent four trunks, than which I never had been more confident of any thing in my life, until by referring to the bill of lading, I found that you had only three: but since the receipt of your letter, it occurs to us that W m A. Burwell had an empty trunk here, which we find is gone. It...

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 have received eleven Hhds of your Tob o , which the person who sent it informs me is all there is. It is inspected, and is said by those who saw your crop last year, to be greatly inferior to it. I do not suppose it would at this time command more than 5 $, if even that; there being scarcely at any demand at this time for Tobacco, except for that of a very superior quality, which would suit...

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 have made diligent search after M r Nelson ’s box, but cannot find it.— Cap t Hand I understand belongs to Philadelphia , or to Alexandria ,—he is however frequently here: I will make a point of ascertaining what he has done with the box, on his return to this place.—I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you at Monticello in the course of the spring or summer.
