I have recd. your favor of the 20th. I cannot doubt the pipe of Brandy to which it relates belongs to me.

If this should happen to arrive before the sailing of the Hornet, be so good as to forward the packet for Mr. Pinkney by that opportunity; if not in time for that, by any safe one next offering from your port.

I have recd. a letter from Francis Hall, charging the President of the U.S. with 2½ years Subscription for the Amn. Citizen, amounting to 25 dolrs. I know nothing more of the case than that since the 4th. of Mar. last, the paper has been sent to me, without being ordered; but as it was not forbidden, I think it right that the charge for one year should be paid by me. I send ten drs. for that...

I have written to a mr Ebenezer Herrick of West Stockbridge Mass. for a Spinning machine of his invention which he writes me he can more handily send to N. York than to any other port. I have taken the liberty to say to him that if he will commit it to you, you will be so kind as to have it embarked on board some vessel bound to Richmond . should any expence attend this, messieurs Gibson and...
I recieved yesterday your favor of the 26. and lose no time in replying to it. if a conveyance by a coasting vessel to Norfolk or Richmond can be found it is so much the simplest that I should prefer it, notwithstand g the risk brought on by the war. but the enemy have not yet had time to spread their privateers on our coast, nor have their ships of war as yet had time to catch our swift...

Your favors of July 31. and Aug. 6. are both at hand. I considered that of A J uly 31. as answered by mine of Aug. 3. altho’ not then recieved: and indeed the general request I made you in that, anticipated the subject of your last letter also; by requesting all articles recieved from for
Your favor of Aug. 31. did not come to hand but by yesterday’s mail, delayed I presume by the late extraordinary floods . it brings me the first notice of the arrival of my books which I have been 3. or 4. months expecting . them but I have not yet recieved either invoice or letter. as we ought to suppose they came by the same ship, tomorrow’s mail may perhaps bring them, in which case you...
I wrote yesterday morning in answer to yours of Aug. 31. and in the evening recieved the Invoice you requested, which I now inclose with mr Warden ’s letters & other papers.

Your favor of the 11 th came to hand last night. supposing that mr Gibson will have sent on the former sum of 89.11 as mentioned in my letter of the 16 th before I could advise him to enlarge it, I have thought it best to inclose to you directly the additional sum of 6.60 D in Richmond bank notes which we understand to be at par in N. York , or if not exactly so the fractional cents on the...
