Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Harrison and incloses him two bonds for the 2 d & 3 d paiments for the lands , filled up with the name of the security he proposed to him. he has ex p repared & executed a deed, which yet however wants more witnesses.
Your favor of the 16 th came to me by post, & not by mr Griffin as it would seem to infer. the new method of selling tobacco by the hogshead renders it difficult for me to sell mine in Lynchburg , as it would require a journey & considerable stay in an inclement season: and if to be sent to Richmond the earlier it goes off the better. I h therefore left orders to hurry it down. another reason,...
As you expressed a wish to have a note of the wines I mentioned to you yesterday, I make one on the back hereof. I can assure you that they are esteemed on the continent of Europe among the best wines of Europe , and, with Champagne, Burgundy Tokay are used at the best tables there. I think Roussill on of Rivesalt is that which will be most used in this country, because strength & flavor are...
We have now got our building to the surface of the ground; and tomorrow, being the periodical meeting of the visitors & also that of our county and district courts, the ceremony of laying the 1 st stone will take place. we are then ready for mr Knight and hope he will come off the morning after he recieves this, as the front wall will be kept back for him. I ask your friendly influence if...
I recieved in due time your favor covering your answer to Scott ; which I have not yet sent to Mess rs Hay & Wirt for want of your signature, a circumstance never I believe dispensed with in the higher courts of Chancery. if you will be so good as to sign & return it by the bearer, I will send it to Richmond from hence with the depositions I propose to have taken while here. before I return to...
This is the first moment that other occupations have permitted me to withdraw to my writing table, since mr Lynch delivered me your letter the evening before last. I have now written to the President of the bank of the US. in Philadelphia a letter of which I inclose you a duplicate, and have forwarded it by mail, in hopes it will reach him as early as your delegates will. I perform this office...
This Indenture made on the 9 th day of February 1811 between Thomas Jefferson of the County of Albemarle on the one part, and Samuel Jordan Harrison of the County of Campbell of the other part Witnesseth; that the said Thomas in consideration of the sum of four hundred pounds lawful money of Virginia to him in hand paid, and of the further sum of eight hundred pounds of like lawful money duly...
As you propose to do me the favor of coming here on Saturday or Sunday to settle our matters, and on your way here (if you come the upper road) you will pass thro’ the land I propose to convey in trust for you, I have thought it best to mark it out to you that you may notice it as you pass. you enter on it about 10. or 20. yards on this side of Johnson’s fence (3. miles from here on the road )...
On my return here on Friday last I found my deed to you for the lands on Ivy creek , executed as I had supposed before three witnesses, himself m r Griffin , Roberts my other overseer & mr Steptoe , and still remaining in Griffin’s hands unrecorded.
As I understood it would be more convenient to you to make the second paiment for the land purchased of me & due the 1 st prox. in Richmond , and it is as convenient for me to recieve it there, the object of this letter is to pray you to place the money there in the hands of Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson which shall be equivalent to paiment to myself. Accept the assurance of my respect. PoC ( ViU...
Your letter of Mar. 12. was not recieved till yesterday. it has given me the deepest concern. engagements to make paiments founded solely on your bond, which I deemed as good as a bank note, are now immediately falling due, and I have no resource, on so short warning, but that, to cover me from the mortification, and the consequences of failure. I cannot yet but persuade myself that, on...
Your favor of Dec. 25. was recieved by yesterday’s mail. having understood while at Poplar Forest that no price worth notice was offering for tob o at Lynchburg , I did not think of making any propositions of sale there, or they would have been made to yourself. I therefore left the usual orders with my manager to send it to Richmond , and meant to desire mr Gibson to keep it on hand until he...
Your favor of the 5 th has been recieved by which I learn that the sale of my tobacco is closed by your acceptance of the offer in my former letter. with respect to the proposal to reduce the price of the stemmed tob o I do not remember whether that was done in our last year’s bargain . if it was, it shall be done in the bargain of this year, my intention having been to sell this year on the...
The mail between Lynchburg and this place is subject to delays more unaccountable than I have ever known on any other rout. your letter of the 17 th never reached this place till the 28 th inst . I answer it by it’s first return. altho’ it has been my rule to sell my whole crop in mass for an average price on all the qualities, yet considering present circumstances I have concluded to accede...
I had left the inclosed papers with mr Griffin in case Scott should have given any further trouble. on his departure he returned them to me, and I think it proper they should be delivered up to you. I state the list of them below. accept the assurance of my respects. 1771. Mar. 16 Richard Tullos’s patent for 374. acres 1797. May 22. Thomas Jefferson’s patent for 100. a s 1795.
Roussillon wine. this resembles Madeir a in colour & strength. with age it is higher flavored; it is considered on a footing with Madeira & dry Pacharetti, and is equll equally used at the best tables of the continent of Europe . there are many kinds of wine made in Roussillon , but that here meant is the Roussillon of Rivesalt . it costs 74. cents a gallon there, & the duty here is 25. cents...
Mons r de Laage , a gentleman from France , lately removed to Lynchburg , has lived some time in Charlottesville , where he became known to myself, and greatly esteemed by all for his great worth, his correct and amiable manners. he was in the military line in France , of the most respectable connections & standing there; but by the chances of their various & calamitous revolutions, has been...
This Indenture made on the 18 th day of May 1812. between Thomas Jefferson of Monticello in Albemarle on the one part, and William Norvell of the county of Campbell and Charles Clay —of the county of Bedford on the other part acting herein as trustees for the sd
My memory is so bad that notwithstanding your explanation of yesterday of the proposition respecting mr Bankhead’s tobacco , I no longer recollect it with sufficient distinctness for him to decide on. have the goodness to put a line into the post office, stating it, & addressed to me at Monticello , where it will arrive nearly as soon as I shall. In your answer to Scott I think you need only...
On my return I found here the inclosed letter from Cap t Jones , president of the bank of the US. which had been lying here a month. it is an explanation of the grounds on which that bank conducts itself; and as it may be satisfactory to yourself & others interested in the late application, to understand these, and may enable you to judge of what may be expected, I inclose it for your and...
I wrote you on the 7 th a request that the money for my tob o might be paid in Richmond . it now occurs that I have about 250.D. of debts to pay in the neighborhood of Poplar Forest which it would be more conveniently done by what is in your hands, than by drawing it back again from Richm d . you will oblige me therefore by paying that sum, when due, to Jeremiah A. Goodman , and having paiment...
The interests of the squadron now at station in our bay , and that of their government, are so directly opposed to their shutting up our produce in our harbors, that I have no doubt of their withdrawing as soon as the danger from the equinoctial gales shall be over. letting our vessels out & cruising for them on the coast, the cruisers may perhaps catch a third, and the residue will carry...
Your favor of Mar. 25. is recieved and I thank you for the offer it makes. I had desired mr Gibson on the reciept of my flour to remit 250.D. to Goodman as soon as he could make any sale. I found afterwards no sale could be made for a reasonable price, and therefore wrote the request to you to furnish that sum to Goodman . in the , and countermanded my order on mr Gibson . in the mean time...
