I am duly favor’d with yours of the 10th. inclosing 200$.—The Coal should have been purchased on time as you desired, but Heth & Nicolson (the latter) knowing it must be had, said they could only sell for Cash; although under other circumstances, they would gladly I am confident, have furnished it on the terms proposed.

I am by to nights post favor’d with yours of the 19th, and have in reply to inform you, that previous to the receipt of your letter authorizing it, (I believe the day before) I engaged your usual supply of bacon from Mr. Macon: as he called on me to know if it would be wanted, applications having been made to him by others. I represented to him the necessity of your getting it early, and...
Your favors of the 10th. & 12th. both came to hand by last nights post—your draughts therein mentioned, in favor of Mr. Strange for £95.8., and Mr. Richard for $:1200—, are accepted.

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...
