I have duly received your favor of the 7 th inclosing Mess rs Shoemaker & Son’s conditional dft on G. & J. for 200$.— As we have heard nothing of their flour, have never transacted business for them at all, and know nothing of them, except of their bad manageme n t at your mill, we of course cannot become responsible even for this small amount, until we have something actually in hand.— As...
As it is very seldom that I see M r Randolph’s Harry , I must ask the favor of you to direct him to call for the negroes blankets.—They should have been sent up sooner, but the person of whom I bought them did not like to open a bale, for fear of the moth: he has lately been opening some, and called upon me to take yours away.—I had them baled up again, but not so securely perhaps that the...
I only yesterday received your favor of the 24 th ultimo .—the note however was in time, but had one hour only to spare.— I suppose that your letters must have been too late for the mail, for the dft to M r Lyles dft Lyle has not yet appeared.— the one to M r Higginbotham did, in due time.
I have long delayed saying any thing to you respecting the situation of M r Mazzie’s property here, in the hope of being enabled to inform you of the receipt of the rent at the same time.— I have not received any however, since that which appeared in our acc t which was rendered to the 30 th of June 1810 , except merely 20$ received of M rs Taylor some time ago, & of that only $:2.79 will...
Your favor of the 1 st leaves me no hope of recovering the trunk N o 28.—it confirms me in the opinion that I sent four trunks, than which I never had been more confident of any thing in my life, until by referring to the bill of lading, I found that you had only three: but since the receipt of your letter, it occurs to us that W m A. Burwell had an empty trunk here, which we find is gone. It...
I inclose as you direct 200$.— I likewise inclose an account of the sale of your last 54 barrels of flour, the net proceeds as you will observe, being $:429. ¹⁷⁄₁₀₀. —This should have been forwarded some time ago, had I not received a letter from you informing me there was more to come down, which induced me to keep it back, with the view of including the whole in one account. As however no...
I have duly received your favors of the 21 st and 26 th with the inclosure mentioned in the last. Wheat having fallen as you were informed by M r Coles on Monday the 19 th — that is, no sales having been made at 9/. after
Lest your failing to forward a note in time to renew yours in the bank should occasion you some uneasiness, I have concluded to inform you that it has not been attended with the smallest inconvenience: the situation of G & J’s account in the bank at this time being such, as to enable them to raise the money by putting in their own note. Had it been at all important, I should probably have...
The goblets received of Letellier are in one of the small packages mentioned in my last. one of the others I am told contains a Map from M r Robertson of Orleans .—the remaining two are paper packages, one of them appearing to contain books. RC ( ViHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r ”; endorsed by TJ as received 16 Sept. 1810 and so recorded in SJL
I have duly received your favor of the 12 th , and have selected the house of Gordon Trokes & Co , as being the most eligible in my opinion for the supply of your groceries.—They consent to receive payment half annually, which is more I expect than any other house here would do for such articles. I doubt however if you will be supplied even on nearly as advantageous terms, as you might be from...
