My wagon which is setting out to day will deliver two Hhds of tobacco. They were made from fresh mountain land and cured without smoke, as indeed was the rest of my crop, and I understand were neatly put up. You will best judge of the most favorable moment for selling them & let me know the proceeds. 2 Please forward by return of the wagon the following articles. P. S Your letter informing me...
The Bull-calf so unpromising at first has turned out a fine one, so that I can spare one of the grown bulls, at a price which I leave to any one of your judicious friends—observing only that he was 6 or 8 months old when he came to my hands, and besides pasturage with occasional grain in the summer he has been now kept thro’ three winters, well housed & lodged, and with as much good hay and...
I have recd. yours of the 27th. Ulti. Should the whole of my little stock of Coke Devon do well you can be furnished here in the spring with a pair. Should the Bull Calf fail, you can be accomodated at least, by temporary management that will give you the initiating service of a grown Bull. It is desirable, if convenient; that you should replace your lost female from another source; that being...
It has happened that one of my Devon young Cows has produced a female Calf, and that the Calf of the other, tho’ a male, was dropt in so feeble and infirm a State as to remain helpless for some time. He is however gaining the use of its limbs and is otherwise improving; but with some uncertainty as to its matured character, it has also to encounter the season of Winter so unfavorable to very...
My wagon will set off in the morning with two more hogsheads tobacco, which I hope will find a favorable market. The delay in sending it has proceeded from the continued moisture of the weather which prevented its preparatory order. The next load will not be sent until the commencement of our harvest. I subjoin a memorandum of articles which you will please send by the return of the wagon. You...
I have recd. your two letters of the 12th & 16th. the former with bill of articles sent by Aleck which came safely to hand. Your clerk in summing the articles made the amount $283.15 instead of $183.15 an inadvertency readily corrected. It would be unreasonable not to be satisfied with the sales of the two last hogsheads of tobacco & I hope we may prove as fortunate in the two my wagon will...
My wagon is about setting off to Richmond with two Hogsheads of Tobacco. Be pleased to make the most of them & communicate to me the proceeds of the sales of this and of the rest of the crop as from time to time it is forwarded. For the first time it has happened that our crop has been cured without being fired & of course without being touched with smoke excepting a small portion & that so...
I have just recd. your letter informing me of the sale of my two Hds. Tobaco Some little delay has occured with those that are to follow owing to the difficulty of getting it in order for the Hds The quality of a part of which, may be superior to that lately sold, the price of which is certainly not to be complained of. It was not my intention to place in Bank to the credit of Mr E. Coles more...
My wagon with 2 Hhds of Tobo. will arrive soon after this. They are the last of the Crop. After selling them, be so good as to let me know the balance for which I may draw. The Waggon on its return will bring the Articles noted below, which I must ask the favor of you to procure. With cordial respects Six Sacks of salt 500 # of Bacon assorted 50 # American blistered Steel Draft (DLC) .
It is so long since the date of your letter informing me that you should in a few days make sale of my Tobo. and would immediately give me an account of it, without my hearing from you, that I suspect a letter must have miscarried. In that case, be so obliging as to forward a duplicate. Taking for granted that the Tobo. would have been sold I draw on you for ninety dollars in favor of Mr....
