Very soon after I wrote you by mr Randolph’s boat, I recieved my articles from No. 1. to 22. inclusive safely. but before mr Randolph’s boat got down I hope 4. other boxes will have reached you, which were shipped from Washington July 11. and that they will come by the boat, as well as mr Divers iron gudgeons which accompanied them, and a kental of Codfish sent from Boston in June to your...
The 4. boxes by mr Randolph’s boats are safely arrived, and the kental of dumbfish not being with them gives one fears it has never come to your hands. will you be so good as to send me by the first boat 25. or 30. ℔ of moulded candles, myrtle wax would be greatly preferred, but if not to be had, good tallow would be next desired. Affectionate salutations. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
My stock of brown sugar falling short I must pray you to send me a cask of about 100. ℔ of the best & whitest muscovado, by the first boat. but it must be double cased & strongly. the last box of wine which came up, was delivered open, and with 13. bottles of the wine used. most of the bottles remained with their corks & shewed they had been drawn. the depredations of the watermen add about...
Yours of the 4th. inst. is just now recd. stating a balance of 74.11 D in my favor. that I presume was soon called for by my two draughts in favor of our sheriffs.—I have now to request you to procure & send me, by the earliest vessel, a thousand bushels of coal of the best quality for the grate.   mr.

On the 2d. of Sep. messrs. Jones & Howell sent from Philadelphia for me some sheet iron, & some round & square bars of iron. they were for a particular piece of work, and mr Dinsmore writes me they can go on no longer for want of them. for fear they may have been overlooked in your warehouse, I take the liberty of asking that they may be forwarded by the first boats if not gone. Dinsmore also...
Instead of remitting to me any part of the first paiment for my tobacco as proposed in my letter of the 31st. ult. be so good as to retain it subject to my draught, which will be as convenient to me at present, & will avoid the risk of that line of the post which for some time past has been considerable. my coal is just now arrived. what you advanced for it beyond my last remittance will of...
I find my letter of the 3d. went too late to countermand the making any remittance hither, as on the day following I recieved yours of the 2d. covering 250. Dollars. I have this day drawn on you for 500. D. in favor of James Lyle at 3. days sight: and I have further to request you to place four hundred and fifty dollars in the Richmond bank to the credit of James Dinsmore of Albemarle, and to...
Some time in the first half of September I do not know exactly when, mr Eppes purchased a horse for me of mr Thweat his brother in law, for 250. D. payable in 90. days at your Counting house. I now inclose you that sum to take up the draught which will probably be presented shortly. I salute you with affection. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
