2482[Diary entry: 17 July 1788] (Washington Papers)
Thursday 17th. Thermometer at 74 in the morning—83 at Noon And 83 at Night. Close morning with the Wind at South, but not much of it at any time of the day. Rid to the Plantations at the Ferry, Frenchs, Dogue run & Muddy hole. At the first, finished getting up & shocking all the Oats—after which the hands (except the Ferry men, and the drivers of a Plow & harrow which were in the Corn) went to...
Since my arrival here I have written you two or three hasty letters—being constantly involved in Business or Company from wh. it would not be here very practicable or perhaps prudent to retreat, I have been able to write but very little—The Convention this moment adjourned and I am writing in their Chamber—a Question being about to be put on the mode of adoption which you have seen, we moved...
Rouen, 17 July 1788 . Director of customs at Rouen has ruled that “refin’d Spermacœti could not be refus’d” under second article of Arrêt, but that “he Conceived it impossible Candles could ever be included” and that, “as having never been particulariz’d in any previous arret they must be” subject to the 5% ad valorem duty levied on all foreign merchandise not enumerated. On examining candles,...
I have been less diligent in acknoleging the receipt of your favors of Oct. 31. Jan. 10. and Mar. 17. than in attending to their contents. They have been the subject of repeated conferences with Mr. Berard of this city, during which I have discovered a real desire in that house to dispose in the best manner possible of the rice you had been pleased to consign to them; and a mortification that...
My letters of Jan. 13. and Feb. 6. informed you that I had sent to your address 1. a couffe of Egyptian rough rice by Capt. Shewell bound from Marseilles to Charleston. 2. another do. by the Juno capt. Jenkins bound from Havre to N. York. 3. a box with cork acorns and Sulla seed by the Packet from Havre to N. York. A letter from the delegates of S. Carolina dated New York Apr. 25. announced to...
The last Letter I received from you is dated Augt. 1st. 1787 and my last to you April 6th. 1788. I have a pretty large Collection of News Papers for you, waiting a convenient opportunity. Mr. Tillier, who takes this, goes from hence to New York to embark for France. I could not ask him to take Charge of the Papers as they are too bulky: but I have made up a Package of Publications, which I...
I have duly received your favor of Nov. 10. but it did not get to my hands till Apr. 24. With respect to the subject of rice, I should myself give the preference to that of S. Carolina. It is fairest to the eye, and, to my taste, equal in flavor to that of Piedmont. But so far as this market is concerned, we must attend to it’s taste also. That decides 10. sous the French pound for Piedmont...
When your letter was delivered me this morning, my servant had just set out with one to you. I am uneasy till I hear from you and know what your wants may be which you wish to have furnished immediately, and which shall accordingly be furnished. Have you heard that the royal thunder has fallen on the Marquis de la fayette? Your’s affectionately, PrC ( DLC ). Paradise’s letter has not been...
Your favors of Dec. 25. Jan. 19. Mar. 3. and Apr. 6. have been duly received, and their contents attended to in time. The 2400 livres remitted in that of Jan. 19. were paid to your son, and the further sum of £300. (I think it was) on account of Messrs. Brailsford & Morris, as mentioned in your letter of Jan. 19. was paid by Berard into the hands of Boyd, Ker & co. Mr. Rutledge’s bankers here....
