By a vessel just departing hence for Richmond I send a number of packages as by the inclosed , in which however I believe there may be an error or two, for I have not yet got the bill of lading. I must pray you to procure for me 3. dozen stick chairs , of the kind marked in the margin, painted black with yellow rings, & forward them for me to Lynchburg . Couch’s boats are, I believe, the most...
My packages from Washington must be now near arriving with you, and I will pray you to forward them by such boats as are deemed trusty. there will also be from mr Taggert of Philadelphia a cask of linseed oil & keg of white lead. I inclose you a bill of lading of for a box belonging to one of my workmen, mr Nelson , which he had addressed to me, to the care of your firm, which as you will see...
My letter by post yesterday desired you to send my goods from Washington by trusty boatmen. I did not then know that mr r R andolph ’s boats would go off to-day. as they are entirely trusty, I pray you to deliver to them whatever you may have for me. the molasses particularly will come safe by them. we are entirely unable to get cotton seed in this part of the country. mr Bacon at my request...
The articles sent by mr Randolph’s boats are arrived safe, except a trunk N o 28. your note by the boatmen mentions 4. trunks. they brought only 3. & suppose they recieved no more, which I presume is the fact as the contents could not be useful to them or e easily disposed of. the contents were almost entirely stationary, with a mathematical machine & some odd things intermixed. it has...
Yours of the 21 st & 24 th are recieved. the amount of my crop of tob o is much less than I expected. Griffin is a good overseer, but has the fault of never writing to me ; so that I never learn the amount of my crop of tob o till it gets to your hands. he had informed me that the frost had been very fatal to his tob o & as I supposed from his expression, had killed about one third. I now find...
On the subject of the trunk N o 28. I am not without a hope that an interview by yourself with the drayman and Harry , the first time he goes down, may yet discover it’s fate. I am anxious, not so much for the value, tho that was considerable and the assortment of paper particular, as for the instrument (Dynamometer) which it contained, the only one in America , & imported for a particular...
Yours of May 30. was duly recieved informing me you had sent by mr Randolph ’s boat 2 boxes lately recieved. these have since come to hand. the one was from Lemaire at Philadelphia , containing oil & syrops. the other was from mr Gelston of N. York and contained 3. doz. bottles of Burgundy wine. I inclose you his letter stating that he had recieved & should forward for me to you two
It becomes necessary for me to establish a correspondence somewhere for the supply of my groceries, that is to say, of sugar, coffee & tea and salted fish and I believe Richmond will be more convenient than Baltimore , Philadelphia , & New York , if to be had there on nearly equal terms. but as I know nobody there I must ask the favor of you to select the most eligible correspondent there for...
Your three letters of June 16. 19. & 23. came to hand by our last post, and I now inclose you the two notes signed as desired. I am sincerely sorry for the transfer of this debt into the bank, & to have subjected mr Venable to a responsibility there which I know must be painful to him, & on that account doubles my uneasiness. a person near the Natural bridge had made me an offer for my lands...
I now inclose you the renewal of my note of January for 8000.D. and sincerely wish it may be used instead of the two prepared for the bank, as I am anxious to keep out of that at least until a good impression is made on the debt. your letter of the 14 th did not get to me till the 20 th and as I observe these delays frequently I suspect carelessness in the post-office somewhere. a dysentery...
