Having let my two Houses to Mr. De Neuville, and stipulated to furnish him with a Carriage House and Stable, which I am afraid I shall not be able to get ready by the time promised, and as he has agreed to receive one at a reasonable distance during the approaching winter, I have thought it might be possible to obtain the one formerly used by Mr. Jefferson for that purpose. It is now entirely...

The enclosed letter contains an acknowledgment of the remittance made to Jacob Adams for the wine imported in his Ship from Madeira, which it is right you should have.

The News from England has astonished every person I have heard speak on the subject....
On the rect. of your respected favor, I prevailed on Mr. Eno to go to Alexa. and examine the Merino Sheep addressed to Mr. Hoe. Mr. H was not at home, nor expected ’till the sale, which would have been too late for those Advertised by Mr. Barry; and having a little business of my own here, I concluded it would be best to come on and bring Mr. Eno with me to take both chances; I therefore...

The enclosed Bill was left with me a day or two ago by Mr. Whetcroft, with a request that I would forward it to you. Altho’ I took no Copy of the hurried Note I wrote you by the last Mail, I have an impression, that I pushed the idea, of part of the articles brought by the Blanchy being for me, to an extent not fully warranted by circumstances, or by delicacy, neither of which, I would...
