Your favor of the 8th. has been duly recd. as was that from Mrs. C. to her sister. I thank you for your attention to the Gardiner. Bizet has indicated a disposition to remain with us; and it is probable will suit the place better than a stranger, till we shall be able to avoid the expence altogether. The entire ignorance of our language and of the habits of the blacks wd be serious...
I have recd. yours of the 22. referring to my note to the Bank which becomes due early in May. The entire failure of my Wheat, and partial one of my Tobacco Crop last year, after like failures in preceding years with other disappointments have obliged me to apply thro’ Mr. Graham for a further indulgence from the Bank of six months, which I hope may not be refused. But if it should not, I must...
I inclosed in my last of the 22d. the note prepared by Mr Smith, with my signature, which it appears had not been recd. at the date of yours of the 25th. I shall be content with any arrangement that will satisfy the Bank and answer my purpose. Be so good as to drop me a line saying what has been finally done. With friendly respects RC ( MHi ). Letter not found.
Judge Washington is to send me shortly a packet of papers. I have taken the liberty of desiring him to put it into your care and I ask the favor of you to forward it by some safe hand coming into this neighborhood. The papers are of a sort that makes safety more important than despatch. Mrs. M. will tell Mrs. C. that we are all well, and I add my assurance to hers of our affectionate regards....
Yours of the 12th. came to hand this morning. I regret most sincerely, the circumstances which compel you to take the step you meditate, as the only resort under the pressure of your debts. I wish it were more in my power to aid you in your distress. Short crops, low prices, and other causes limit my present means, & suggest caution as to future engagements. I have determined nevertheless to...
Do me the favor to have the inclosed handed to the Editors of the Nal. Messenger in George Town who will return you a small balance & a receipt. Mrs. M. writes to her Sister, I believe. I can add nothing but that we have been for some days again got back to Winter. The mountains before us, as far to the South as they are visible, are covered with snow half way down their sides. Our fruits, the...
Be so good as to obtain for two letters inclosed a conveyance from the Department of State. We learn with much pleasure that we may expect a visit from Mrs. C. & the little family. We hope you will not remain behind. I shall set off tomorrow or next day for Rockfish Gap, but hope to get back in 7 or 8 days. Yrs. sincerely RC ( ViU ). Docketed by Cutts.
I recd. yesterday your favor of the 20th. Eddins has not yet recd. the pattern of a Rifle Stock. The information is very acceptable that the option is afforded him; and not less so that if his fund of Walnut should not hold out, it will be no disappointment to the ordnance Dept. He will soon be able to judge of this point; and to send down to Fredg. his first delivery. If I am not mistaken,...
I have rec’d yours of July 30 & inclose a letter to Mr. Smith which please seal and deliver, requesting that the property I purchased of the bank & for which the closing payment has been rec’d may be duly conveyed to me. I hope this conclusive evidence will not be without effect on staying the purpose of your creditor in Charleston, to involve me in his chancery experiment. Extract (Robert F....
I have recd. yours of the 17th. inst. Be so good as to mention the amount of interest required for the 2d. note to the Bank in order to a Credit for 90 days and I will forward it in time for the occasion. Let me know also & forward whatever paper will require my signature for it. Respects & good wishes RC ( MHi ). Letter not found.
