Yours of the 3d. came to hand yesterday morning. I shall be happy to hear of the arrival of the groceries &c. in Richmond, as we are much in want of them: so also of the glass when shipped from Philadelphia—a mr Andrews , who lives near the former post office in Washington & works on ornaments for architecture, was to make for me some Doric ornaments, which should be ready before this time. he...
Your favor of the 20 th came to hand last night only, and the same post brought me an answer from mr Morton which I inclose for your perusal & consideration, with a request to return it to me. mr Morton is a native of this state, not personally known to me till lately, but long ago much recommended to me by many here; but most particularly by mr Coles , who was much with him in Bordeaux ,...
Your favor of the 2d. inst. came to hand only last night, having been delayed by the failure of the post two weeks successively, to come, perhaps on account of ice and bad weather. I am sorry a want of form in the power inclosed prevented your drawing Mr. Short’s interest on the 1st. inst. and very thankful for your not suffering my bill to come back. The purpose as to Mr. Short was a very...

Your favors of July 30. and Aug. 3. came to hand yesterday, and on the same day arrived here our boxes, casks &c. shipped from Washington before my departure; all in good order except the tea box containing coffee, sugar &c. which had burst open and lost some of it’s coffee; also my Indian busts , which by rough tumbling about, had got broken into many pieces. I learnt by yesterday’s post mr...
I this moment recieve yours of the 2d. and am confounded and ashamed at the incomprehensible omission of filling up the blank in the check for 1175. D. in your favor. I now send you another for the same sum, which you will recieve Thursday evening in time to send it by the post which leaves Washington Friday evening. I hope you will not have put yourself to the trouble of otherwise procuring...
This serves to advise you that I have this day drawn on you for [150]. Doll. at three days sight in favor of Mr. Charles Johnston & Co. of Richmond, which please to honor. Several little disbursements which you have made for me, of unknown amount, render it desireable to recieve a continuation of your last account. Yesterday came to hand a box of Segars, which I presume is from you. I expected...
After an absence of five weeks, I returned home the day before yesterday, and found here your favors of May 18. & 24. & June 16. and 22. I am much rejoiced that you have been able to compleat the sale of Gen l Kosciuzko’s Pensylva bank stock, and to transfer it to the new loan of the US. there I know it will be safer than in any deposit on earth and will place him beyond those risks which...
Instead of remitting me the sum of 584 D .29c as desired in my letter of Aug. 29. I must now ask the favor of you to remit me in cash only 244 D .29 and the balance of 340. D. to remit to James Brand, carpenter, at Portland in Maine. should it not be practicable to obtain a bank draught for this on some bank there, it is probable the Treasurer of the US. will give his draught on the Collector...
This is written a few minutes after your departure from this place; for on returning into my room, and recollecting your question of yesterday, whether I had no remittance to make to your quarter, it occurred that I was indebted for the National Intelligencer for some years back; for indeed on examination I do not find that I have paid it later than to Oct. 31. 13. as it will give you less...
