I recieved by yesterday’s post your favor of Oct. 31. and I hasten, by it’s return to say in answer to your enquiry that it is not necessary that you should make any particular tender of services to Col o Monroe , altho you may be assured he knows you too well to ascribe it to any unworthy motive, for I know from himself that he holds you in high respect. My experience in the affairs of the...
I have reserved specially for yourself the following observations. the proposition of mr Gibson’s going to Lisbon in your stead even for a time, should not be made. nobody respects mr Gibson more than I do, nor is better-satisfied that he would, under all situations, do what is right. but the temper of this country towards England is at this time very high. the Senate are always averse to the...
M r I. Coles was mentioning to me to day a sale of tobacco by mr Carter , his brother in law, the other day, under the hammer as he termed it for 39/6 tho the remnant & most indifferent of the crop, & that his brothers had sold in this way for high prices for two years past. the sale he says was by his agent there (perhaps of the name of Gwathney ) by getting some merchants together to bid...
M r W. Dawson , agent for the fire insurance company, has a claim on me for 11. D 40 c, fee on the valuation of certain property which I propose to have insured, which I will pray you to pay to him. as he informs me he is in want of it, will you be so good as to give him notice that he may call for it PoC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “George Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ.
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 20th was recieved yesterday inclosing my account balance 3128.60 and the estimated amount of 54. Barrels flour unsold, to be drawn for— there should be still near 50.

Since mine of the 3 d inst. I have drawn on you on the 11 th for 30.D. paiable to John Butler or order, and for 20.D. paiable to Edmund Bacon or order. and this day I have inclosed to mr Barnes a letter addressed to you, desiring you to answer his draught for a sum of between 3. & 400.D. which is not exactly known to me, but will be fixed by him. Affectionately Yours
It is with real reluctance I trouble you with small commissions, which I know ought not to be done. I do it therefore only in cases of urgency, & for articles not to be had here. we are in immediate want of 29 32. yards of Cotton diaper or Cotton damask (I know not which it is called) of about 9 or 10. quarters wide for tablecloths, which I am told is to be had at Richmond . will you be so...
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...
I recieved last night yours of the 29 . William Johnson of Milton has two boats on the river & is now engaged in carrying down my crop, of which he carried to you 40. Bar. of flour the last week, being the first load he had taken for me. he attends his boats himself and may be trusted with the oil, spirits of turpentine or any thing else of mine, except that I would not have my plaister...
