Th:J. will be obliged to Mr. Randolph to make George prick out the inclosed grains of wheat below the garden wall or wherever he thinks best. It is of the genuine early wheat gathered by Mr. Jones in a field here which was reaped on the 5th. of June.—So far all well. I set out in the stage between 3. and 4. in the morning. Adieu. RC ( DLC : TJ Papers, 94: 16106); partially dated; addressed:...
After having experienced on my journey the extremes of heat, cold, dust and rain, I arrived here yesterday. I found at Baltimore that the stages run no further North, and being from that circumstance thrown into the hands of the harpies who prey upon travellers, was pretty well fleeced to get here. I think from Fredericksburg here with a single servant cost me upwards of seventy dollars....
Immediately on the receipt of your letter of Oct. 31. I extracted what was necessary from it and wrote to Mr. LeRoy. His answer has produced a state of things with which you are probably unacquainted; which however, tho it presents a much broader scene, may present also more security for you, than that which we had understood to exist. The debt from Colo. Randolph to Mr. LeRoy and others is in...
I received yesterday your favor of the 14th. Mine of the 2d. ought to have been then at hand, and since that those of the 10th. and 17th. All will have informed you of my health, and being here. I am happy that you think Tarquin will suit you, and insist on your acceptance of him. This is no sacrifice to me, because my sole motive for having thought of parting with him was that he is...
I forgot in the inclosed to mention that my Model of the threshing machine is at length sent by the Ellice Capt. Weymouth bound from New York to Richmond, addressed to Colo. Gamble. I have written to him to hold it subject to your order. Knowing nothing of the size or construction of the model, I am not able to say whether it may not be too small or too delicate to trust by a waggon, or how...
This was my day of course for writing to Maria, but business obliges me to postpone her till the next Sunday, which I have the better right to do as I have not yet received a letter from her.—I inclose you a second letter received from Mr. Leroy in reply to a second which I wrote to him. I thought it not amiss to cultivate his good dispositions as these might facilitate the sheltering your...
My letters to you have been of Nov. 2. 17. 24. Dec. 8. all of which I hope you have received. Yours come to hand have been of the 31st. of Oct. 7th. 14th. and 30th. of Nov. and 11 th. of December .—When I wrote the last Sunday , I hoped my furniture, books &c would have been embarked and sent off the next day. But the vessel loitered till the river has frozen up, and will now prevent their...
