Your’s of the 24th. is recieved, and I will send a bunch of good bell wire by the waggon. I would wish the Piazza to be plaistered as soon as the weather will permit. it is not to be white washed. I have given directions through mr Bacon to mr Watkins as to the manner of finishing the stone house now building, to wit, with a roof hipped every way, so that there will be no pediment. he was not...
Your letter of the 19th. was not recieved when I wrote mine of the 23d. since that Gibson & Jefferson inform me that there is a difficulty at the Richmond bank in placing the 500. D. to your account, & mr Nelson’s, because they have not your signatures, & that therefore I must give you orders on the bank. accordingly I now inclose separate orders for yourself & mr Nielson for 500. D each. I...
When I wrote my letter of the 7th. inst. I doubted whether I could as early as this place the monies therein stated at your command in Richmond. but this serves to inform you that I have this day desired messrs. Gibson & Jefferson to make a deposit in the bank of Richmond of 500. Dollars in your name and 500. D. in the name of mr Neilson. by the next post I shall be able to send you the...
I had informed you that about this time I would place in Richmond 500. D. for yourself & 500. D. for mr Nelson. but being desirous of paying off my bills here as fast as I can get them in, I find it will be more convenient to me to postpone that remittance to the beginning of the next or perhaps of the following month, if it will be no inconvenience to either of you. I had presumed it would...
By Davy you will recieve a bundle containing 2. bells, & 4. bell-levers, the planes you wrote for, & 2 kneebolts. in a separate roll is the sand-paper you desired. the folding mahogany sash which closes the alcove of my bed is too heavy & troublesome. I wish you to make a folding frame to fit the alcove & to be covered with paper on both sides. the frame must consist of 3. parts united by 2....
Your letter of the 1st. has been duly recieved. the plane irons, sand paper, 4. bell levers, & 2. bells will be sent by Davy’s cart which will come here at Christmas. I propose a 4th. bell, in addition to the 3. formerly directed, that is to say, on the left side of the Parlour fire place, the wire descending into the ware-room, passing along the South East wall out through the wall adjoining...
Th: Jefferson incloses to mr Dinsmore the acknolegement of the bank of Richmond of a deposit to his credit of four hundred & fifty Dollars. he will make a further deposit in the same place about the last of December or 1st. of January for mr Dinsmore & one for mr Nelson, because at that time he will be entitled to recieve money in Richmond and so will avoid the risk of the post which is worthy...
By this post I forward to mr Bacon 50. D. for you: and this day also mr Jefferson will deposit 450. D. on my order in your name in the Richmond bank, subject to your order. by the next post I shall be able to forward to you the reciept of the bank. Inclosed I send you directions for hanging the bells. they are so few, & so contrived that I think you will have wire enough. I have some idea of...
I recieved last night yours of the 24th. you shall have the 500. D. you desire on the 8th. of Aug. only you should guard against a failure of a single post which sometimes happens. the money will be recieved here on the 5th. and may be regularly expected by the horse post which will arrive at Monticello on the 8th. but a failure of the post might retard it to the mail stage of the 11th.—you...
I observed about a dozen gutters of sheet iron lying out in front of the kitchen, which I suppose to be left after all our purposes at Monticello are answered. if so, would it not be well to send 8. of them to Bedford for the gutters of the two Porticos? I suggest this for your consideration, being myself unapprised of the facts. I salute you with esteem. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
