An absence of some days from Town has prevented my sooner replying to your favor of the 29th ultimo.—It is seldom that any of the wines you mention are to be had here—and when to be had, must of course come higher, than they do in the Northern Towns; as we get our small supplies of those kinds entirely from thence, with the exception of a small proportion from Norfolk. I am Dear Sir Your Very...
I inclose you Capt. Wingets receipt for 1100 bushels of Coal, being so near the quantity you want, that we thought it best not to wait for a Vessel that would carry exactly what you require. Heth & N. inform me it is taken away from the yard as fast as they can get it down—which causes that now sent to be not so large as usual; as they have but very little out of which to choose. I am Dear Sir...
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. It cost 18 Cents, shipping charges $1.83=$199.83. I am Dear Sir Yr. Very...
I forwarded yesterday the pipe of Wine and other articles received by the Caroline from Philadelphia. There is nothing now of yours remaining here. Had I not better engage your stock of bacon? I am Dear Sir Yr. Very humble Servt. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
The boxes alluded to in your favor of the 25th, were re-shipped to Baltimore on the 21st. Yr. Very humble Servt. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
I have duly received your favor of the 7 th inclosing Mess rs Shoemaker & Son’s conditional dft on G. & J. for 200$.— 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 to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 7th. inclosing 75$—The coal you require shall be forwarded by the first opportunity; there are however but few vessels I believe, which go from here to Alexa. and fewer still to Washington. only 14 hhds of your Tobacco are yet down. the price now is from 6 to 7$ according to quality, or the opinion of it . I hope yours may be supposed to...
As it is very seldom that I see M r Randolph’s Harry , I must ask the favor of you to direct him to call for the negroes blankets.—They should have been sent up sooner, but the person of whom I bought them did not like to open a bale, for fear of the moth: he has lately been opening some, and called upon me to take yours away.—I had them baled up again, but not so securely perhaps that the...
I am duly favor’d with yours of the 15th. with the nine manifests therein mentioned; I am sorry they did not come sooner as the last of your Tobo. was shipped to day—13 Hhds: on board the Sloop Little Sam Capt. Dickey, & 13 on board the Sloop Nancy Capt. Oliphant—these with the six shipped to New York make up your quantity except one Hhd: which the Inspectors say is not in the warehouse...
I only yesterday received your favor of the 24 th ultimo .—the note however was in time, but had one hour only to spare.— I suppose that your letters must have been too late for the mail, for the dft to M r Lyles dft Lyle has not yet appeared.— the one to M r Higginbotham did, in due time.
I am by to-nights post favor’d with yours of the 5th. inclosing your dft: on Mr. Barnes for $:200— I am apprehensive that the only way of getting money for such drafts will be by sending them on to Mr. Barnes with directions for him to remit the amount in Bank notes—as no person will like to be at the trouble of sending them to George Town for acceptance, and then of forwarding them on to...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 5th inclosing 300$: I now inclose you a bill of loading for 1300 bushels of Coal, & for five boxes some short time ago received from Monticello. At the same time that I gave an order for your Coal, I likewise gave one for about the same quantity for Mr. Madison, which I supposed would probably go in the same Vessel.—Will you be so...
This post has brought me yours of the 8th. Johnston has no nail rod of yours—the last he received for you he forwarded in November last. I had made this enquiry previously to my last , but omitted to inform you of it. That which was seen in his lumberhouse the first of February I expect belonged to a person of his name in this place, which he informs me was sent to him about that time by...
I some days ago receive a number of packages for you from Mr. Barnes, and likewise a cask & two boxes which were not mentioned in the bill of loading; the whole of which I forwarded by Thos. Priddy’s boat a few days afterwards. I also sent you a cask of molasses at the enormous price of 4/6 ⅌ . bill inclosed. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson...
Your favor of the 29th. is duly received. I will with much pleasure attend to the books at Mr. Wythes—I have as yet heard nothing of your negro—I have spoken to the Constables but they neither know him, or recollect having been desired to find him. I was in hopes Bob Hemmings knew something about him, but he does not—I have desired him to find out Mr. Whaley & to make enquiry, but as yet he...
I forwarded some days since the remainder of the nail rod , & the hoop-iron, received some time ago. I likewise forwarded by C. Becks’s boat 31 packages lately received from George Town & Alexandria, together with a Hhd of Molasses & the 3 Casks Cyder. I could not conveniently get the Molasses caskd, and therefore sent it without, supposing Becks to be perfectly honest, and very careful. I...
Your favor of the 7th. inclosing manifests for 21 Hhds. Tobacco is duly received. As the Inspectors at Milton are not over-correct I think it necessary to inform you that the manifests for that Tobo. have never been forwarded to us. Although I suppose there would not be the smallest difficulty in obtaining the price you mention for the Tobacco, yet as information was received here last night...
I have lately received, and have to day forwarded to Johnston & Richardson of Norfolk, to be by them sent on to Mr. Barnes by the first opportunity, seven dozen of Mr. Macons hams; being all that he can spare. I am endeavouring to make up the quantity you require, and hope shortly to procure such as may be relied upon. The two boxes & Cask of wine from Philada. arrived some days ago, and were...
I received last night your favor of the 19th. and have to day delivered the letter which it contained to Wm. Brown & Co., and accepted your dft in their favor payable the 14th. of February for $416. We would quite as soon you would at any time draw on us in this way as not, provided you would insert in the draft payable in United States Bank notes . As our bank does not receive the notes of...
Your favor of the 1 st leaves me no hope of recovering the trunk N o 28.—it confirms me in the opinion that I sent four trunks, than which I never had been more confident of any thing in my life, until by referring to the bill of lading, I found that you had only three: but since the receipt of your letter, it occurs to us that W m A. Burwell had an empty trunk here, which we find is gone. It...
I inclose as you direct 200$.— I likewise inclose an account of the sale of your last 54 barrels of flour, the net proceeds as you will observe, being $:429. ¹⁷⁄₁₀₀. —This should have been forwarded some time ago, had I not received a letter from you informing me there was more to come down, which induced me to keep it back, with the view of including the whole in one account. As however no...
The pipe of wine about which you some time ago made enquiry, together with sundry other articles shipped from Philada. so long ago as about the middle of Decr. in the schooner Caroline, arrived here only a few days past; in consequence of the Vessel having sustained so much injury in a gale of wind as to be obliged to stop at Norfolk to be repaired, together with her having been since detained...
I have duly received your favor of the 16th. and have in compliance therewith given you credit by Mr. Barnes for the 130:$ received of Mosby for Mr. Short. The cyder has not yet arrived from Norfolk; which however, as yet, is of no consequence, as it could not have been forwarded, in consequence of the low water. There have not I believe been a dozen boats down from Milton in 5 or 6. months. I...
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...
Your favor of the 5th. is but this moment received. I hasten to inform you that it will be perfectly agreeable to me for you to draw in favor of Mr. Lyle, & of Mr. Tazewell, for the 2000$: you mention; indeed I hope you will not have waited for this permission. There certainly can be no delay in the receipt of the money from the James River company. the amount I cannot ascertain to night, but...
Having been about to leave Town for two or three weeks and having been desirous previously of disposing of your Tobacco—I was to day induced to offer it at 42/., altho’ I did once hope, I might have done something better with it. even that however I could not obtain—partly I believe in consequence of late advices from England, which are somewhat unfavorable; those from France however I did...
I have received your favor of the 14th.—Your instructions respecting the wheat for the agricultural society, shall be strictly attended to. I have been looking out for such as you describe, but have not yet been able to meet with any; though hope soon to procure some which is genuine. Mr. Buchanan has shewn me your lot of ground. a Mr. Gaddy has enclosed a small part of it, on which he has...
I intended to have written you by Mr. Richardson myself , but was out of the way. Since that 10 Hhds: more of your Tobacco have come down, from Bedford, making in all 19—so that there is now only one remaining— This article is now very dull at 48/. & 50/ Cash, a prime parcel of 40 Hogsheads I understand was sold a few days ago at 9$: on a credit of 90 days. I hope the next accounts from Europe...
I have since my last received your favors of the 3d. & 8th—Hollo day to whom you allude has been dead for some time. If Henderson were a person in whose correctness I placed confidence, I would without waiting to hear from you again have the mill-stones valued; but knowing him as I do, I apprehend if he were pleased with the valuation he would abide by it, and if not, would say, he had not...
I have at length effected a settlement of Mr. Shorts account with Mr. Brown; the balce. of £112.1.5. which was found to be due by Mr. B. ⅌ his account which you will find inclosed, I have received. I was surprised to find that the fees which have caused a delay of 9 or 10 months in the adjustment of this account, amount only to 47/. I shall wait for Mr. Barnes to draw for this money, or for...
