I return you inclosed herein Mr. Leiper’s two letters. I am glad to find that the Tobacco has turned out to be sound, and not to have been wet—as J. & W. cannot possibly now have any legal, or just claim on you. As to their demand of a deduction on account of the quality of the Tobo., I think I may venture to affirm that a more unreasonable expectation was never entertained by Man. In order to...
I have at length effected a settlement of Mr. Shorts account with Mr. Brown; the balce. of £112.1.5. which was found to be due by Mr. B. ⅌ his account which you will find inclosed, I have received. I was surprised to find that the fees which have caused a delay of 9 or 10 months in the adjustment of this account, amount only to 47/. I shall wait for Mr. Barnes to draw for this money, or for...
I am duly favor’d with yours of the 1st. and have in reply to inform you, that the mode by which you propose to pay us the balance which Mr. Randolph falls in our debt, is perfectly agreeable to me; as any other would have been, which had been so to you, or to himself. I will attend to your direction respecting the molasses, as it may now be cased with safety. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble...
I am very sorry to inform you that Messrs. M & F. have received a very unfavourable account indeed of your Tobacco; as the subjoined extract of a letter from Jackson & Wharton of Philada., for whom they purchased it, will shew. This is so very contrary to my expectation that I could scarcely have believed it, if M & F. had not shewn me samples from several Hhds, the heads of which were out...
Your favor of the 16th. came duly to hand. Mr. Barnes had, previous to its receipt, remitted us the $:384.43 you mention; and which came before it was wanted. I received, a few days ago (only) two small casks of wine shipped by Messrs. S. Smith & Buchanan of Balto. for you so long ago as the 18th. ultimo—they are forwarded to Milton. I have at length seen Brown—he promises very shortly to have...
You will receive your account inclosed, made up to the end of the year; from which you will observe there was then an apparent balance in your favor of £1147–19–3. from this deduct £813–19–9 not due from M. & F. until the 1st. of April next, and the real balance which was then in our hands will be found to have been £333–19–6. I have heard of a small draught of yours in favor of James Lyon ,...
You will observe from your acct which I forward herewith, that you are not charged with the 50$: which I some time ago paid for you; this I omitted because I did not like there should be any appearance of mystery in pecuniary matters betwixt us. The order therefore I return inclosed. If you do not choose it should remain until I have the pleasure of seeing you—it will not now be inconvenient...
I have to day received of the Treasurer of the James River company £160–15—as at foot, & which I have applied to the credit of Mr. Barnes. I will by next post forward your account to the end of the year & am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. Reimbursement of two fourths of the principal lent the company—(a further proportion of one fourth having been determined to be reimbursed since my last...
Your favor of the 5th. is but this moment received. I hasten to inform you that it will be perfectly agreeable to me for you to draw in favor of Mr. Lyle, & of Mr. Tazewell, for the 2000$: you mention; indeed I hope you will not have waited for this permission. There certainly can be no delay in the receipt of the money from the James River company. the amount I cannot ascertain to night, but...
The price of Tobacco having continued stationary from the date of my last until a few days past, and having then rather declined, on receipt of intelligence that it had become so very dull in Philadelphia & New York that scarcely any sales were made, and of course that the prices in those places were merely nominal; I concluded, in compliance with your instruction , to make sale of yours—which...
I am informed by the Treasurer of the James River company that he is directed to make a further reimbursement of the money lent by the individuals of the company, of one fourth. In looking over the powers for the last reimbursement he cannot find yours in my favor for Mr. Shorts, and cannot therefore ascertain whether or not it was general. he also informs me there is some Interest due Mr. S....
Having been much engaged last night after the arrival of the post I entirely forgot in my hurry to inform you that I received a few days ago of Messrs. Pendleton & Lyons $:1315—on acct. of Mr. Short. This sum I presume should be remitted to Mr. Barnes in George Town; if so I expect I shall have to send it by post in notes—there being such little intercourse between the two places, that I think...
Your favor of the 7th. inclosing manifests for 21 Hhds. Tobacco is duly received. As the Inspectors at Milton are not over-correct I think it necessary to inform you that the manifests for that Tobo. have never been forwarded to us. Although I suppose there would not be the smallest difficulty in obtaining the price you mention for the Tobacco, yet as information was received here last night...
Your favor of the 24th. ultimo should have been answered by last post agreeably to your request but that I did not return home until a few days ago after an absence of several weeks. it was then handed to me by Mr N — I immediately waited upon Mr. C—and paid him the sum you directed. I desired him to send you two copies of his work immediately, and the balance at his convenience—but he the...
It just occurs to me that I have omitted to inform you of the receipt of $:680—of Mr. Barnes on your account & $:296.97/100 on account of Mrs. Key. This information would have been sooner given, but that Mr. B—sent it to us in a dft on the Cashier of the bank—and as it could not be disposed of at the time we sent it to our friend in Phila. to collect & to forward the amount in notes—and which...
The long delayed (to say the least of it) business of the nail-rod is at last settled. Mr. Nicolson a few days ago paid me on account of it £20.19.3, which is something to be sure, better, than to have lost the whole. I have got 4 boxes of the ointment, and given them to the postrider. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr. Monticello”;...
I am by to-nights post favor’d with yours of the 5th. inclosing your dft: on Mr. Barnes for $:200— I am apprehensive that the only way of getting money for such drafts will be by sending them on to Mr. Barnes with directions for him to remit the amount in Bank notes—as no person will like to be at the trouble of sending them to George Town for acceptance, and then of forwarding them on to...
I some days ago forwarded to you by Martin Rowe’s boat 120 bundles nail-rod, 7 bundles Hoop-iron, & a small paper parcel. These things arrived about ten days ago, but I could not sooner meet with an opportunity of sending them. There went with them a small Trunk for Miss Virginia Randolph. It seems I think, as if Brown will scarcely ever pay the balance he owes Mr. Short—he still says he has...
I sent you on Saturday last by A. Row’s boat 155. ℔ bacon, 1 dozn. bottles of Center, and ½ dozn. bunches Cord, agreeably to your request; together with a box of fish which was left here by a Boston Captain, who did not know from whom he received it—not having signed any bill of lading for it. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. I did not take particular notice of the chairs, but from my...
Your favor of the 9th. is received. the chairs you mention were not inserted in the bill of lading with the other articles, unless they were for Colo. Saml. Cabell which I do not suppose; the same number came for him to the care of Mr. Brown, and were included in our bill of lading—but they were particularly stated in it to be for him, and were besides directed to him on the bottoms. I...
After meeting with repeated disappointments I at length succeeded in getting the Hhd: of lime, which I sent up on Friday last by Henderson’s boats. The person of whom I got it promised to send in his bill but he has neglected to do so. he informed me it would be 5/. ⅌ bushl. The long delayed business of the nail-rod is at length in a train to be settled—Mr. Nicolson having a week or two ago...
I expected before this to have sent up the Hhd. of lime which you some time ago ordered, having spoken to a bricklayer to prepare one for you; I called on him to day to know why he had not sent it, and he informed me he had not been able to get it ready, but that I might depend upon receiving it tomorrow. You may therefore calculate upon getting it in a few days after you receive this. The...
I some days ago receive a number of packages for you from Mr. Barnes, and likewise a cask & two boxes which were not mentioned in the bill of loading; the whole of which I forwarded by Thos. Priddy’s boat a few days afterwards. I also sent you a cask of molasses at the enormous price of 4/6 ⅌ . bill inclosed. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson...
I am duly favor’d with yours of the 7th. and will attend to Mr. Eppes’s draught should it appear. I will also attend to your direction about the molasses ; You did I recollect desire me to send up a Hogshead in the course of the winter provided it could be had at some certain price which you named, & I informed you immediately it could not be had at that price then, & I expected it would not...
I called to day on Mr. Brown for the balance due by him to Mr. Short & informed him of what you had written me respecting the fees ; he observed that he could not ascertain what they were, and that it was unnecessary to have two settlements: that he had desired Mr. Wiseham the Exr: of Mr. Ronald to bring them in, and so soon as he did it should be settled. I then desired that he would...
I was by last post favor’d with yours of the 15th. inclosing Your order on James Brown for the bala. due by him to Wm. Short, supposed to be, exclusive of Intert. from 3d. Octr. ’93. } £81–13–11 Richard Randolph’s note to W. S. on Intert. from 23d. Decr. ’89 for }  62–10— Littlebury Mosby’s note to do. on Int. from 1st. Janr. ’88 with a memo. at foot of £18–19–1 Intert. having been paid 5th....
I sent you yesterday by a Mr. Monroe, Randolph’s abridgment of the Virginia laws; I would have look’d out for an earlier opportunity but this Gentleman has had it in possession for about 3 weeks, and has been going from day to day ever since. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr. Philada.”; endorsed by TJ as received 21 Apr. and so recorded...
I have duly received your favor of the 20th. inclosing $:470– on account of Mr. Randolph; which with the two sums of which I have heretofore acknowledged the receipt , make $:1870– being within a trifle of the sum I advanced for him to Mr. Pickett. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr. Philada.”; endorsed by TJ as received 3 Apr. and so...
I have again spoken to the inspectors respecting your lost hhd. of Tobacco. They say they are willing to replace it by another from the same inspection & of the same weight; and that nothing more has ever heretofore been required of them. I informed them that you expected to be paid the same price that you had received for the balance of your crop, as otherwise you would sustain a loss in...
I am by to nights post favor’d with yours of the 4th.; The sum I advanced for Mr. R. to L. & B. was $:1868.79/100, which I think he informed me he had mentioned to you in a letter subsequent to the one of which you now acknowledge the receipt—but which it may not be amiss to repeat, lest he should have forgotten it. I would not by any means have you to put yourself to the smallest...
