You proposed to me at court the hiring one of the shoemakers of your late brother , which at that time I declined. I will now however be willing to take him and should prefer having the one which can sew the neatest. I really think the house, garden E t c at Bunker’s hill rents too low. it cannot be worth less than 50.D and I suppose that this is the time for fixing it’s rent at a proper...
I inclose you a letter I have just recieved from mr Hornsby in answer to one I had written his father , for I did not know of his death. it puts his claim on the land on an entire new footing, denying that the mother , or daughters ever knew of the sale, or recieved a farthing of the money. if I were stronger I would ride down to see you. as it is I can only request if your business should...
I am infinitely obliged by the kind offer of the sum mentioned in your letter, and any further one you will be able to spare: an award is given against me for between 7. & 800.D. for rent to the Hendersons , to be paid instantly. I have also to pay 1600.D. more for the 3. shares of the daughters. this, with purchase of corn, and two years failure of crops embarrasses me beyond my expectations....
The title purchased from Henderson’s representatives is so extremely complicated as to render it indispensable to state in the deed all the several conveyances of all the parties; otherwise in case of question at any future time it might be lost for want of knowing it. I have endeavored to do this in the inclosed deed, and in order that you may have time, I send it to you To-day, & pray you to...
The demand of Frances Hornsby for her portion of the lands of her father conveyed to you by James L. Henderson is now become so serious as to require us to proceed immediately against James L . and in the mean time to aim at some compromise with mr Hornsby . I yesterday conversed with Cap t Meriwether , attorney for Hornsby
I recieved yesterday the inclosed letter , and have this day forwarded on the bill it covered, to mr Hollins of Baltimore . by the Northern mail which leaves Milton tomorrow it will reach him on Saturday, whereas had I waited to send it thro’ mess rs Gibson & Jefferson at Richmond it could only have got to Richmond on that day, and would have added near a week to the term at which it is...
Your letter of the 4 th came to hand yesterday. I do assure you that I never have entertained a moment’s doubt of the truth of the transaction between Ja s Henderson , mrs Henderson & yourself as to the sale of the lands of the 3 youngest daughters, and of her full knolege & consent to it as you have ever stated it. I believe her denial of it to be a sheer falsehood. it was impossible such a...
The titled title to the lands of Bennet Henderson having passed to yourself thro many hands & by many deeds, I wish in the preamble to the deed to state, for each part, the conveyances by which it came to you, as a matter of information in case any of his descendants should hereafter raise a question on it. I have begun it in the following way, which I know to be imperfect. ‘they (that is, the...
I recieved in due time your letter covering Sheckle’s certificate of his having never paid the 2. years rent of the house he had rented. this was quite unnecessary, as your own assurance of that to me was quite sufficient. perhaps, at the time you mentioned it, I might have betrayed some little surprise, because that the whole rents from the 3. tenants Sheckle , Hope & Bowles for a year or two...
