I duly received your letter by Mr. Chisholm . The difficulty of the saw mills in sawing longer stocks than their saw-frame has never been regarded here. We take out the head block which holds the slab end of the stock; let the stock shoot back beyond that as far as it will go, and leave the slab end to be sawed by hand, for a stock of 24 f in a mill of 21 f. there would remain 3 f. of every...
Your letter of the 27 th Jan. came to hand last night, and this morning I have written to mr Gibson to inclose to you 30.D. by the mail to Lynchburg . he will recieve my letter in on Monday next, the 7 th and by the first mail after
Being desirous that Gill ’s waggon should go with Dick ’s, and having a job of hauling of corn from a distance and some other things to finish before Gill could go, I detained Dick to help dispatch it, and tomorrow both waggons will set out. the two beeves came in terrible order; the cow so poor that we are obliged to turn her out, and the steer in worse order than some of ours, so that we...
Dick , Solomon and Philip are permitted to go and see their friends, and in returning will help to bring the hogs and beeves. I am in hopes you have procured the beds and given them to the women. in giving out their clothes I forgot the article of hats, which I give every other year; but as it will be more convenient to give about half one year and half another, we will give to the men only,...
M r Goodman’s crop for the next year 1814. will be as follows. Corn in M c Daniel’s field; but as this turns out to be but 50. acres, we must add other grounds to it; and there are none but what belong to some other field, except the those over the S. Tomahawk, & above the lower corn field. we must of necessity then give the tobacco ground, & the stubble ground there to corn, and put the upper...
Hercules arrived here on the 22 d having been discharged from Buckingham jail on the 20 th where he had been confined as a runaway.the folly he has committed certainly justifies further punishment, and he goes in expectation of recieving it, for I have assured him that I leave it to yourself altogether and made him sensible that he deserves & ought to recieve it. I believe however it is his...
The unexpected difficulty of getting water to my saw mill and threshing machine has made it impossible for me to leave those works a day; and the harvest is now so near as not to leave me time for a visit to Poplar forest . I must therefore put it off till the harvest is over. as soon after that as I shall suppose you may have brushed over your tobacco, I will go; because I imagine you will be...
I avail myself of the few minutes mr Burwell stops here, to drop you a line by him. on reciept of your information that the flour would all go down the ensuing week, I wrote to mr Gibson the moment any tolerable price could be got, to sell as much as would enable him to remit you 250.D. which I expect he has done by this time. this will enable you to pay the debts of which you gave me a...
your letter of Jan. 12. never reached me till the day before yesterday. the ram of Merino blood sent to Poplar Forest is half blooded from a ewe of my Spanish breed. a full blooded ram lamb is never sold for less than 50.D. the half blooded generally at 20.D. but as I my object is not to gain, but to benefit our citizens by enabling them to get into the breed, I have never taken more than...
