I ought to have answerd yr. last favor sooner, relative to an advance made me sometime last year at Fredbg., but many interesting concerns have prevented it. That advance was I presume made to Mr. Jones, as I recollect writing by him to request abt. that sum to be applied to my use there. I think too you advanc’d him the cash as he paid the debt wh. I owed on his arrival at Fredbg., tho I...
I have just taken a transient view of my affrs. here for a day or two, & set out back to Richmd. to day. It wod. give me great pleasure cod. I extend my trip to yr. house but that is impossible, and altho’ I had this excursion in view for a fortnight past yet I cod. not ask you to meet me; as I expected that pleasure when Mr. Jeffn. arrived.

Mr. Alexr. Stuart brother of Archd. has desired me to make known to you his pretentions to a seat in our council with a view to yr. friendly aid in obtaining it. It is impossible to refuse saying of him what I think, especially as my acquaintance with him is of ten years, commencing with his study of the law & continuing since.

From the north we have nothing new except the publication...

I wrote you two days since & sent the letter to Charlottesville. It is only this moment that I recollect I omited to enquire whether you had heard of the overseer you promised to endeavor to engage for me. I shall take no step relying on him till I hear from you. Perhaps he wod. be satisfied with £50. as it is in a healthy country, and the entire command of the plantation in his hands. But you...
By the bearer Mr Bell and you will recieve the packages mentioned in the inclosed Memo. Annexed you have a list of the packages received a few days ago from Phila. but not having a Bill of Lading I do not know whether they are right. However as they agree with the Manifest of the Captn. I hope & have reason to beleive they are so. Not a Vessel offers for Philadelphia. In consequence of the Low...
I tax you with H.’s pamphlet, requesting that you will return it by the post to Mr. Jeffn. You will be so good as tell me frankly yr. opinion of the footing upon wh. my correspondence with that Scondrel stands, and whether it becomes me to pursue him further.

If you can conveniently I will thank you to furnish to Mr. Jones for me abt. £45. wh. I am to pay at Fredbg. under an engagment wh. cannot be delayed. I have adjusted my affr. with Pickett by the payment of ⅔ ds. the amt. and otherwise securing him in the balance in three months, so that I am freed from that difficulty. This was done by the sale of my military land. I shall probably be down,...
