The nail rod, hoop iron, & molasses arrived yesterday—& are forwarded to Milton. The chimney-piece has never yet come down. Your very humble servt. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thos. Jefferson esqr. Philada.”; endorsed by TJ. Recorded in SJL as received 26 Feb. 1799.
I am duly favor’d with yours of the 15th. with the nine manifests therein mentioned; I am sorry they did not come sooner as the last of your Tobo. was shipped to day—13 Hhds: on board the Sloop Little Sam Capt. Dickey, & 13 on board the Sloop Nancy Capt. Oliphant—these with the six shipped to New York make up your quantity except one Hhd: which the Inspectors say is not in the warehouse...
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...
This post has brought me yours of the 8th. Johnston has no nail rod of yours—the last he received for you he forwarded in November last. I had made this enquiry previously to my last , but omitted to inform you of it. That which was seen in his lumberhouse the first of February I expect belonged to a person of his name in this place, which he informs me was sent to him about that time by...
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 was by last post favor’d with yours of the 20th. inclosing manifests for 10 Hhds: Tobacco weighing 16447 ld. which I have delivered to Mr. Hooper. I am extremely sorry that I could not with the smallest degree of propriety even hint it was my wish (because it is yours) that he should give security; much less could I demand it. although it is customary in Philadelphia to have some guarantee,...
Your favor of the 29th. is duly received. I will with much pleasure attend to the books at Mr. Wythes—I have as yet heard nothing of your negro—I have spoken to the Constables but they neither know him, or recollect having been desired to find him. I was in hopes Bob Hemmings knew something about him, but he does not—I have desired him to find out Mr. Whaley & to make enquiry, but as yet he...
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 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...
I have received your favor of the 14th.—Your instructions respecting the wheat for the agricultural society, shall be strictly attended to. I have been looking out for such as you describe, but have not yet been able to meet with any; though hope soon to procure some which is genuine. Mr. Buchanan has shewn me your lot of ground. a Mr. Gaddy has enclosed a small part of it, on which he has...
