Yours of Feb. 21. has been duly recieved. I think in conversation with you at Lynchburg , I stated to you that on winding up my affairs at Washington I was obliged to apply to the bank of Richmond for a large sum, for which I pledged to my endorser my Bedford crops of tobacco, and that with what they had yielded the two preceding years, the crop now at market would clear me of the bank. that...
I did not learn till within these two or three days that y ou were returned from Richmond , to which place I understood you were gone, or I should sooner have applied to know whether you could furnish the winter’s supply of cloathing for my negroes. we shall need about 250. yds of woollens, 300 yds. of linen & 20. blankets. I am now getting the last of my wheat to the mills and shall have it...
You had a right to expect to hear from me ere this on the su b ject of a paiment. but I am one among the unfortunate who have been caugh t by the blockade before the sale of my flour. I have between 4. & 500. barrels now in Richmond , & not a barrel sold. I have desired mr Gibson to hold up for 7.D. thro’ this month, but then to sell for whatever he can get. the moment I hear from him that he...
I inclose you an order on Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson for 600.D. I had hoped to have done more & sooner: but unfortunately no part of my crop of flour got to market until the blockade commenced, and after keeping it on hand long in hopes of some reasonable price, until there was danger of it’s spoiling I have been obliged at last to sell, getting for the greater part of it 4.D. only, which...
My flour of the last year being still unsold, I have said nothing to you yet on the subject of a payment out of it. but I have desired mr Gibson not to keep it on hand after the last of this month, but to take whatever he can then get for it. what that will be I know not: tho’ probably but little, and the drought of the last summer reduced the quantity one half. the same cause having destroyed...
Having some plantation debts to discharge here amounting to about 240.D. I have this day written to mr Gibson to remit it that sum and believing it would come safer under your address than if inclosed to mr Goodman directly, I have taken the liberty of desiring mr Gibson to inclose it to you, & have to ask the favor of you to recieve, and pay it when recieved to the order of Jeremiah A....
The sheriff of Bedford called on me yesterday for the first time to inform me of the amount of my taxes, and that he must recieve them at the ensuing Bedford court. being to leave this place the day after tomorrow I am obliged to ask your assistance to draw from Richmond the amount of the inclosed draught on Gibson & Jefferson which may be recieved by mail before Bedford court, where I...
On On recurring to my papers I found f a me m orandum of the bond which I suppose mr Garland had left with me; but into which, as I was not ready to pay I imagine I did not look, not doubting the tha t the accounts he gave me, among which this was, were all right. among my papers at home I expect I shall find the accounts on which it was founded. my error had been in supposing that all had...
I had to pay in this neighborhood a sum of between 13. and 1400 D. and came prepared to do it with Treasury bills; but the creditor refuses to recieve them without a discount of 3. per cent; this neither my principles as a citizen, nor my opinion of the comparative solidity of Treasury & bank bills permit me to yield to. I am informed there is a probability that there may be merchants in...
I thank you for your kind attention to my request of yesterday , and mr Goodman now takes on 1400.D. of treasury notes to exchange for banknotes. but as the person for whom they are intended shews difficulty as to the kind of money he will recieve, should there be among those you will send me any which he will reject, I shall hope to be permitted to send them back tomorrow and to recieve in...
According to your permission I have given mr Clay an order of this day on you for 55. Dollars, and I now inclose you a draught on Gibson and Jefferson for 138. Dollars to cover this and the two sums of 60.D. and 23.D. which you were so kind as to furnish mr Goodman with. Having found it necessary to make a change in the management of my affairs here , I have engaged mr Joel Yancey to undertake...
