I have been grievd to hear from Jefferson of your bodily & mental afflictions, which I hope will be relievd in a great degree, speedily, by the passage of the bill now before the Legislature, granting you a Lottery, for the disposition of a part of your property, for the payment of your debts—on this subject I have conversd freely with the members of my acquaintance, & cannot entertain a doubt...
I have great pleasure in informing you that your bill was ordered to be engros d to=day by an overwhelming majority, a very few indistinct naes only heard, tomorrow it will pass without a division, & in the Senate the minority will be about four to six against it, probably none:—this will be cheering news to you I hope, & verify what I predicted in my last, that when understood, & reflected...
It affords me heart felt pleasure to inform you that your bill has passed the Senate, and is now a law of the Land—It was rec d in that body yesterday morning, read three times, (the rule of the House being suspended for the purpose) & passed forthwith, only four voting in the negative, (viz.)

The enclosed was sent to me, no doubt, thro’ mistake—I thank you for its contents, and regret the trouble you have been occasioned in relation to it. M r Madison has sent his Tobacco to this market for some years past, & may now be without an agent for the sale of it, & under that impression I offer my services to him:—his former agent, altho’ still living here, since his failure, will...
The balance of Trade being in favor of the North at present, we cannot obtain dfts: in that direction, I have however written to M r E. Copeland J. of Boston, to draw on me at sight, for the acc t you specify, on ℀ Messrs: Dodge & Oxnard of Mersailes, which will no doubt be very satisfactory to him. MHi .
Yours of the 17th: is now before me. Your Tobacco from Bedford I have never yet heard from; I have rec d from Albemarle, since last fall, 430 Blls Flour on your a/c, and finding no prospect whatever of selling it here, to advantage, ship d it long since to the Eastward, where I hope it will yield you a better return than could possibly be anticipated here, if indeed a sale of it could have...
