Yours of May 29. with 150.D. inclosed was duly recieved as is that also of June 5.

I inclose you a letter I have recieved from mr Edmund Randolph , by which you will see that he executed our joint deed to mr Taylor on the 22 d of May...

Your favor of the 24 th is recieved and the 700.D. therein inclosed. I have a letter from Derieux of the 8 th a paragraph of which will shew you that he is conscious of having no legal claim on mr Mazzei it is in these words. ‘our destiny, Sir, is in your hands. and if you will, you can yet save us from the deplorable situation which threatens us, by becoming our father & benefactor [advocate]...
I have been here a fortnight, and am likely to continue a fortnight longer, and therefore not in a situation to hear any thing about the price or prospect for flour. but I see nothing which promises such a change for the better as makes it advisable to keep what we have on th h and, on the contrary a competition with the new crop will soon lessen our chance of selling the old. I would...
Being uneasy at the delay of my tob o in Bedford , I lately sent an express there to be ascertained as to it’s departure. mr Yancey informs me by that, that it is all at Lynchburg , that he has contracted with D r Cabell to send the whole on the return of his boats which were then down, and makes himself responsible it shall leave Lynchburg by the 10 th this being the season for the to which...
I shall leave this place tomorrow on my return to Monticello from which I have been absent ever since the date of mine of Oct. 28. so that if you have favored me with any line since that time it will be unrecieved until I get back. some necessary plantation demands have oblige me to draw on you this day in fav r of A.

Johnson ’s boat, and one of mr Eston Randolph ’s went off yesterday afternoon with between 90 & 100 barrels of flour for me & would haul their boats round Magruder ’s locks, which by unloading & reloading, they say, is practicable. Johnson on his return will take off another load for me. in Bedford as we are 11. miles from the Lynchburg mills, and our horses all engage g
I wrote you from Poplar Forest on the 29 th Ult. covering a blank note for the renewal of my former note in bank with an addition: the messenger which carried that letter to Lynchburg brought me your two favors of Aug. 28. & Sep. 21. I am persuaded the former had laid long in the post office, altho I had never failed once or twice a week to have enquiry made there for letters. I very much...
In my letter of Aug. 10. I informed you I should draw on you from Bedford for 600.D. in favor of Brown & Robertson . this I accordingly did; and from the same place made three other draughts in favor of the sheriff of Bedford for 111.D. Nimrod Darnell 50.D. & Jeremiah A. Goodman 37.50 D it is questionable however whether this last will be called for. in the same letter I mentioned that I...
I have duly recieved your favor of the 19 th with the 300.D. inclosed. I was sorry to learn that my letter had not got to you in time to avail me of the momentary demand for flour. I wrote by the first mail after hearing there was such a demand. but these advices reach us too slowly, and therefore I had entertained a hope of your selling without waiting to consult me. I think it impossible but...
Your favor of the 13 th came to hand last night, and confirms what I had not doubted that the error stated by mr Dufief had happened at Philadelphia . if the same has taken place with mr Steele the collector I shall be happy that it be corrected; because I feel much obligation to the Collectors for their kindness respecting these parcels. I should not have troubled you with this but that I...
In my answer of the 7 th to yours of the 3 d of Mar. I omitted to note what you had stated as to the bargain for Mazzei’s lot, to wit that the paiments were to be made within so many days after a sufficient title shall be made. I now expect daily an answer from mr Randolph after which there will be no delay in making what I deem a good title. but if mr Taylor should deem it otherwise, I take...
Your favor of Dec. 22. is recieved, and I now return the note with my signature. what you mention of the boat load of 35. barrels of flour mentioned in mine of Oct. 28. not having been delivered; is the first notice I have of that failure, and the 2 d time I have been misinformed in the same manner. the tenants of my mill are bound to de liver their rent of fifty odd barrels a quarter at...
The navigation of our river above M c Gruder ’s locking locks having been suspended by their being out of order for 2. or 3. weeks past, and likely to continue so some days longer, I am obliged to send a small cart for a part of the wines which I expect have been lodged with you for me from Alexandria , New york & Norfolk . I give to the bearer a paper of directions
The ice of our river has at length broke up, which enables us to get off this day 3. or 4. loads of flour, which, the tide being good, will be with you nearly as soon as this letter. the boatmen will call on you for their pay @ 3/6 per barrel. mr Yancey some weeks ago informed me that such was the press of tob o going from Lynchburg , that flour could not then be got down under 15/ a barrel, &...

In my letter of the 15 th by Johnson I mentioned that excepting for some small matters of current expence here I should not avail myself of your permission to draw, but for my remittances to Philadelphia and to mr Barnes , until the proceeds of the note for my flour, or that for the bank were in hand. and I had hoped that the remittance for mr Barnes might have lain over a month or two. but a...
I am just returned from a visit to Bedford , whither I had gone to ascertain & settle my crop of tobacco. I found that my former manager, Griffin , had very greatly mistaken the quantity of tob o he expected to make. he had been very confident of making as much as in the preceding year. as he had never before disappointed me by a mistaken calculation, I had fondly hoped to have cleared myself...
Your favor of the 13 th with 300.D. inclosed is duly recieved, and I now return you the note for the bank filled up with 2000.D. the additional 500 D. being intended to cover my draughts until I shall get some flour down. I am concerned to learn that flour is but at 5.D. in Richmond . I see by the prices current of Philada it is there at 10.D. and some gentlemen now with me & recently from...
Th: Jefferson asks the favor of mr Gibson to have twenty Dollars remitted to the bank of Fredericksburg subject to the order of mrs Mary Dangerfield of Coventry near that place. he is sorry that a circumstance which forbids his writing even the letter of notification obliges him to request mr Gibson to have such an one addressed to mrs Dangerfield of Coventry near Fredericksburg . PoC
I recieved in December from M r Dufief of Philadelphia a letter of the 16 th of that month informing me he had not recieved a sum of 31.D. which I had notified to him that you would be so kind as to remit him.

Nobody rejoices more sincerely than myself at the return of peace, nor could the season for it’s being made known be better timed. I shall get down the rest of my flour as fast as possible. my crop was a poor one here, and still worse from in Bedford . it will be under 100. Barrels of flour there. here the crop will furnish about 300. Barrels and 150. Bar. rent from my mill, in all something...
Your favor of the 24 th was recieved yesterday. I did not know that the bank had determined to curtail their discounts, which lays me under the greater obligations to you, for indeed I should have been much distressed without the accomodation. my taxes here and some demands not regularly payable till the spring were so urged as to embarras me. being to set out for Bedford tomorrow; I have...
Your favor of the 16 th is safely recieved with the 200. Dollars it inclosed. with respect to my flour on hand it is proper I should adapt my former minimum of 8.D. to the times. I leave the price therefore to yourself entirely, with the observation that it is better to lose a little by selling for less than may perhaps become the market price, than to lose the whole by holding off too long....
Understanding that mr Gibson is too unwell to attend to business, I take the liberty of addressing to yourself directly a request of my account from the last period to which it was rendered (Sep. 1 st ) to the end of the year, that I may make my arrangements accordingly.     in my letter of Dec. 28. I mentioned that a purchase of corn would require me to draw about this time for between 500. &...
