I wrote you last on the 15th. since that we are quieted by an entire confidence in the account from the Natchez that the Spaniards will immediately deliver up the posts. the conduct of our agents there was so waspish as to have induced a suspicion that, if war was to take place against France, we meant to drive Spain into it also, that our Southern states might have something to conquer and...
Your’s of Feb. 26. came to hand on the 8th. inst. but after mine to you of that date was sealed. I at the same time recieved one from G. Jefferson informing me I had no nail rod in his possession. Richardson however, who happened to be present told me that on the 1st. of Feb. he saw in mr Johnston’s warehouse a considerable parcel of nail rod which they told him was mine. I therefore wrote...
Mr. Beckley informs me he has proposed himself to your notice in the disposal of offices in this state. his long residence here has given you such opportunities of personal knolege of him that it is unnecessary to supply that: otherwise I should add with pleasure & truth my testimony of the talents, diligence & integrity with which he has conducted himself in office, and of his zealous...
I have scarcely a moment left to write to you, having waited till the morning of the departure of the post to see Barnes in expectation I could inform you of the sale of our tobacco . Your’s arrived yesterday. I had found it safest to sell for 10. Dol. as no more than 9 1/2 D. has been given for new tobacco and Lieper would not take it, as he formerly did, at the old tobacco price, giving a...
Your’s of the 10th. is recieved. I had expected mine of the 14th. would have been my last from here, as I had taken measures for my departure on the 20th. but on the 19th. in the morning we heard of mr Marshal’s arrival at New-York, and I thought it better to remain and see whether that circumstance might engender any thing new, and in which I could be of any service. I have reason to believe...
I wrote to you on the 4th. inst. and yesterday recieved yours of the 27th. ult. I find on enquiry that the 400. D. of mr Short’s which I thought were in mr Jefferson’s hands have been applied to the credit of mr Barnes, for so much he had advanced here for mr Short. this reduces so far what I had depended on. on rallying all other resources I find I can cover about 1800. dollars for you, and...
I recieved by the last post Martha’s letter of Jan. 30. since which date I wrote to you on the 4th. & to her on the 11th. inst. your letters if they came by the Fredericksburg mail would arrive here on Saturday and would give time to answer them by Wednesday morning, the departure of our mail. but they have for some time past reached us only Tuesday afternoon, which shews they go in the...
I wrote you last on the 19th. acknoleging yours of Dec. 8. from Richmond which is the last come to hand. we have nothing from Europe more than you see in the newspapers. Congress seem to be resting on their oars, uncertain what to do. we think the less they do the better, and therefore concur in all adjournments, postponements & whatever else will rid of time. the election is still...
Mr. William Short (now in Europe) owns 1000. as. of land in St. Bride’s parish Norfolk county called Green sea land adjoining to Patrick Henry & co. at their S.W. corner by patent dated Dec. 10. 1784. his affairs are under my care, and it is but lately that this possession has come to my knowlege. I am apprehensive no taxes have been paid for it, & indeed that it had never been placed on the...
I believe we may consider the election as now decided. letters recieved from Columbia (S.C.) this morning, & dated Dec. 2. which was the day of appointing their electors, announce that the republican ticket carried it by majorities of from 17. to 18. the characters named are firm, & were to elect on the next day. it was intended that one vote should be thrown away from Colo. Burr. it is...
