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...
I received by yesterdays post a letter from Mr. Randolph in which he enquires of me whether you have any nail rod here? and desires if you have, that I will send it up immediately, as the naillery is almost at a stand for want of it. I am induced to give you this information least Mr. R. should conclude I have some in my possession, and for that reason delay acquainting you with the want of...
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...
Capt. Potter with the nail rods Molasses and seeds did not arrive here until the day before yesterday. I have this day sent up the seeds by a Waggon, & two Tons of the nail rod by a boat; the balance, and the Molasses, I expect to send tomorrow. I have been endeavouring agreeably to your request to procure business for Mr. Lewis—but have not yet heard of any place; if I should, I will give you...
The sloop Sally Capt. Potter did not arrive until yesterday—which was occasioned chiefly by a considerable fresh in the river which met him at Osburnes, where he was detained in consequence of it about a week. he called though I understand at Norfolk. The harpsichord & box of plants are forwarded to Milton by a boat as you directed. I have at length sent the two barrels of wheat for Sir John...
Your favor of the 6th. came duly to hand. I have in conformity to your direction disposed of your Tobacco at $:13. payable the 1st. of Octr. & the 12th. of Novr., to a Mr. Hooper. I offered it to every person who I thought was acquainted with it’s superior quality, except to Mr. Brown—to whom Mr. Randolph (who is now in Town) offered it with his own. Mr. B. having refused positively to give...
Capt. Potter arrived to day with the things mentioned in the bill of lading which you enclosed in your letter of the 10th.— They shall be forwarded by the first boat going to Milton. I wish the beer which you desired Mr. Hay should have bottled for you could accompany them, but fear it will not—as it appears as if I shall not be able to prevail on Mr. H. to have it done; he has frequently...
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,...
Concluding you will be anxious to know when the things go up which came by Capt. Potter, I have to inform you that there is a boatman now down who has engaged to take them, & who sets off up tomorrow. They should have been forwarded sooner, but that most of the Milton boats had stopped running, in consequence of the water having been very low. there is now a little swell in the river which has...
I am much surprised at not having yet heard any thing of the order which you mentioned having sent me on Mr. Hopkins. I however suppose it cannot have miscarried, & therefore conclude that you must have directed it to be forwarded, & it has been delayed. Have the goodness if you please to send me an order by next post on the Inspectors at Shockoe for a Hhd: Tobo. of yours—I did not suppose as...
