M r Higginbotham informs me he did not recieve from you the order for the 500.D. on the Postmaster General as had been arranged between us, owing perhaps something to the day of paiment proposed.

Your favor of the 5 th was recieved on the 11 th & recieved with great joy.

It has been a sincere affliction to me to be so importunate with you on the subject of my rents, but my necessities; which I only partly explained to you, have forced it on me. I inclose for your perusal two letters recieved by the last mail , which will shew you how sorely I am pressed, and that the urgencies I have stated to you were really less than the truth. be so good as to return the...
I have considered your proposition of yesterday to endorse a bill of 500.D. for you to be put into the bank of Richmond & on mature reflection must decline it. I have never carried my name into that bank, & if any thing could have induced me to it, it would have been my own present difficulties. but for a mere farmer to go into a bank for money destroys his credit at once. but the insuperable...
I have to acknolege the reciept by the last post of your letter of the 1 st inst. & in it of 490.D. that is to say a draught on the Philadelphia bank for 350.D. & 140.D. in bank bills. as mr Higginbotham ’s order had been drawn on the rent due the first year, he was, in all justice entitled to the first money recieved and the rather as he had waited with indulgence a twelvemonth. I therefore...

I recieved last night yours of yesterday . this being court day at which mr Bacon & myself must both be, it would not be advantageous that the labourers should be there, without him. if you will let me know to-day how many labourers you propose to employ in on the canal, yourself I will send an equal number tomorrow morning. I am in hopes the Carpenters can return to the mill tomorrow & finish...
It is with great regret that I write you a letter which I am sure must give you pain, but your interest as well as my own makes it my duty, & yours is still more urgent than mine. I have little doubt that your sons write you flattering accounts of their proceedings & prospects at the Shadwell mills , & it is possible they may flatter themselves with retrieving their affairs, but however I...
