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 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.

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...

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.

I intended to have written you by Mr. Richardson myself , but was out of the way. Since that 10 Hhds: more of your Tobacco have come down, from Bedford, making in all 19—so that there is now only one remaining— This article is now very dull at 48/. & 50/ Cash, a prime parcel of 40 Hogsheads I understand was sold a few days ago at 9$: on a credit of 90 days. I hope the next accounts from Europe...
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.

Your favor of the 8th. inclosing Manifests for twelve hogsheads Tobo. was just handed me by the post rider—I will attend to the shipment of the ten Hhds: to N. York as you direct; it is getting something better with us, but must mend considerably before ten dollars can be obtained. I call’d on Mr. Wythe agreeably to your request—he informed me that some of the labels had got off the books but...
I find since closing my letter that I have omitted to inform that Anderson Rowe has never yet brought down the Hhd: of Tobo. you mention—he called when he was last down & informed us that he would bring it the next trip—but we find there is no kind of confidence to be placed in him—he brought us a manifest which we return to you—as you sent us one for the same Hhd:—W. Johnston did not bring a...
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.

I should before this have sent you Mr. Anthony’s receipt for the 28 bundles of nail-rod that are down, and which I have delivered—but he is from home, and his Clerk refuses to grant a receipt, as he says he has received no instruction upon the subject. This information I should have given you sooner, but Mr. A has been expected from day to day ever since I received your letter; I however think...

You will observe by referring to my letter of the 18th. ultimo that I made a mistake of £10– in adding together the money I recd. for the principal of your Certificates & that for the Interest—I recd. £169–9–4 instead of £159 as I informed you—& which I did not discover until after I had paid Mr. H.

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.

I would not by any means have you to put yourself to the smallest...
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.
