The small pox at Richmond has cut off the communication by post to or through that place. I should have thought it Davies’s duty to have removed his office a little way out of town, that the communication might not have been interrupted. Instead of that it is said the inhabitants of the country are to be prosecuted because they thought it better to refuse a passage to his post riders than take...
I wrote to Mr. Madison on the 3d. inst. Since that I have received his of Mar. 24. 26. 31. and Apr. 14. and yours of Mar. 26. 31. and Apr. 2. which had been accumulating in the post office of Richmond. The spirit of war has grown much stronger, in this part of the country, as I can judge of myself, and in other parts along the mountains from N.E. to S.W. as I have had opportunities of learning...
Mr. Nathaniel Anderson , formerly of Richmond, but now of our county, informs me that he has a son settled or about to settle in Havre, in the mercantile line, whom he wishes to be made known to you, and to have the benefit of your countenance in his new establishment. Tho’ myself personally unacquainted with the son, I have long been much acquainted with the father whose merit affords a...
I have recieved your favor of Sep. 7. from Paris, which gave us the only news we have had from you since your arrival there. On my part it would be difficult to say why this is the first time I have written to you. Revising the case myself, I am sensible it has proceeded from that sort of procrastination which so often takes place when no circumstance fixes a business to a particular time. I...
I wrote you on the 26th. of May last. Since that Mr. Jones has been here and Mr. Madison, and have communicated to me some of your letters. Mr. Jones is taking good measures for saving and improving your land, but of all this he will inform you. I inclose you a letter for Mde. Bellanger, which I leave open for your perusal as it’s contents may suggest to you some service to Derieux. I also...
I wrote you two letters in the course of the last twelvemonths to wit May 26. and Sep. 6. 95. and have recieved from you those of Sep. 7. 94. and June 23. 95. neither of which were late enough to inform me if either of mine had got to hand. In those I gave you all the details public and private which my situation enabled me to do. In the last I asked the delivery of a note to Frouillé for some...
I wrote you on the 2d. inst. and now take the liberty of troubling you in order to have the inclosed letter to Mr. Gautier safely handed to him. I will thank you for information that it gets safely to hand, as it is of considerable importance to him, to the US. to the state of Virginia, and to myself, by conveying to him the final arrangement of the accounts of Grand & Co. with all those...
The dreadful misfortune of poor Derieux , who has lost his house and all it’s contents by fire occasions the present letter to cover one from him to his aunt. I send it open for your perusal. Be so good as to seal and send it. I hope she will if she has not done it already, send him some relief. I recieved only 3. weeks ago your favor of Nov. 18. It had been 5. months on it’s way to me.
