Some Notes on the claim of rents by Frances , Lucy & Nancy C. Henderson .

Your favor of the 16 th has been duly recieved, and your kind offers of service, on your return to the Balearian islands is recieved with the thankfulness to which it is so justly entitled. the prices of the productions of Majorca are really so favorable as to tempt me to trespass on your goodness by adding to the two pipes of Albaflor wine, some other small articles as noted below. your...

I shall set out for Bedford within three days, and expect to be absent as many weeks. the newspapers have begun the war for the European powers; but...
I have duly recieved your favor of Sep. 18. and I percieve in it the same spirit of peace which I know you have ever breathed, and to preserve which you have made many personal sacrifices. that your efforts did much towards preventing declared war with France , I am satisfied. of those with England I am not equally informed.

Your letters of Dec. 20. 14. and May 11. 16. are yet to be acknoleged: and my thanks to be returned for the book which accompanied the former on the subject of Great Britain and America . that able exposition prepared the European mind for receiving truths more favorable to us, and subsequent events have furnished facts corroborating those views.

I originally employed you to build my saw mill having confidence in your work & prices. when it was turned over to mr Brown , it was understood between you and myself that he was to be governed by your prices. we are now about coming to a settlement, which renders it necessary for me to ask the favor of your prices. mr Brown handed me a bill of yours, but it related only to gristmills,...
I duly recieved your favor of the 12th. and with it the pamphlet on the causes and conduct of the war, which I now return. I have read it with great pleasure, but with irresistable desire that it should be published. The reasons in favor of this are so strong, and those against it are so easily gotten over, that there appears to me no balance between them. 1. We need it in Europe. They have...
