In the inclosed letter of yesterday I omitted one article. the three barrels of potatoes on board the wreck were intended for planting. they will possibly be spoiled, or come too late for that object.

Your favor of the 23d. is recieved & I now return you mr Peyton’s order accepted payable the first week of August. this I presume will make only the week’s odds with you, while it makes a month’s odds with me, as I settle & pay the first week of every month for the whole month. considerable paiments for the beginning of July render an anticipation then not convenient. Affectionate salutations....
An opportunity occurs of immediately disposing of what ready money can be a raised for mr Short, to great advantage. be so good therefore as to settle without delay the balance with mr Brown & remit it to mr Barnes.

I have taken the liberty of sending to your care by a Milton boat, a box directed to mr J. W. Eppes which I pray you to recieve & keep till sent for by him. it contains matters of great cost, & extreme brittleness, and I have recommended to him to send the body of a carriage with springs for it’s safer conveyance.

PrC ( MHi ); at foot of text:...
Yours of the 14th. is recieved. I find that mr Barnes has made some mistake about the stick chairs. he recieved and paid for half a dozen for me. they were painted of a very dark colour, & were in this style. perhaps, if you saw those forwarded to Colo. Cabell you will recollect whether they were in this form, and may judge whether they were mine. if not, then mr Barnes has not forwarded mine...
According to my letter of yesterday I now inclose you the treasurer’s order on mr Gibbons for 600. D. which I hope will get to hand in time to prevent disappointment. will you be so good as to send to Monticello a hogshead of best molasses, but in a double case in sound & good condition or it will be no better than a hogshead of water when it arrives there. if there is any syrop of punch to be...
I put the inclosed under cover to you, because I fear a former letter of the same tenor to mr Oldham may have miscarried: and I leave it open, because he may possibly be engaged somewhere at a distance from Richmond, in which case I would ask the favor of you to have the mahogany procured for me by somebody else, & forwarded to Monticello, where they are now in want of it. I salute you with...
I suppose we may by this time conclude that my tobacco will not fetch 7. Dollars: and foreseeing no circumstance likely to raise the price soon, I propose that you should sell it for 40/ for any credit not exceeding 90. days. indeed the shorter the term of paiment you may be able to obtain, the more convenient to me, as I have calls which would render it a sensible accomodation. Accept...
Mr. Craven Peyton has desired me to assume for him to you 156D .67 paiable the 10th. of July and 533D. 33 paiable the 10th. of Aug. the first of these paiments will be a little too early for me.

I find my letter of the 3d. went too late to countermand the making any remittance hither, as on the day following I recieved yours of the 2d. covering 250. Dollars. I have this day drawn on you for 500. D. in favor of James Lyle at 3. days sight: and I have further to request you to place four hundred and fifty dollars in the Richmond bank to the credit of James Dinsmore of Albemarle, and to...

D. for the residue on reasonable credit. if you can get that on 2 or 3 months credit, I shall be willing...
In my letter of the 16th. I omitted to desire you to send me 200. [℔ ] of the best brown sugar. there is a white Havanna sugar, in powder, a little dearer than common brown which I should prefer; or one half of that, & half of good brown. this may be sent by a waggon either to mr Higginbotham at Milton or Colo. Bell at Charlottesville who will pay the transportation. we are in immediate want...

I will thank you however to pay the freight &c. coming & going on my account. Affectionate salu tations. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
Mr. Freeman my manager at Monticello in the place of Lilly being new in the business, has improperly applied to you for nail rod. I pray you not to supply it, as it’s high price at Richmond would take away all profit from the manufacture. I have ordered it from Philadelphia & it must now be on the way. if you have not lately sent up some coal for the smith at Monticello, I would thank you to...
On the 7th. inst. I forwarded you the first halves of bank bills to the amount of 1500. D. on the 8th.

I arrived here the day before yesterday on a visit of one fortnight [only and am] in hourly hope of seeing my groceries [arrive] from mr Barnes as well as a quarter cask of wine from Robertson [and Brown] of Norfolk.

The late Dr. Currie held a bond of mine for £158.19 with int. at 6 per cent from May 1. 1797 now in the hands of his administrator, mr Gordon.

I inclose you a bill of lading for 12. packages sent from here on the 12th. instant by the sloop Miranda, Tooker. as the first 7. of the packages contain groceries I must pray you to entrust them to the most faithful of the boatmen returning to Milton. I expect Congress will rise the first or second week of April, and that soon after that I shall be able to make a short trip to Monticello. I...
I percieve by the last quarter’s account that there was a balance of 49.79 D against me since which you have paid between 4. & 500. D. for me. I must pray you to make this sum out of my tobaccos in your hands in preference to any other object, as I would not wish you to lie out of money advanced.

I now inclose you the reciept of Capt. Hassan for my packages. three days of N.W. wind have probably placed him at the mouth of James river by this time.

I inclosed you yesterday the bill of lading for my millstones, but had not then time to write. on their arrival should the state of the river admit their going by water without danger of their being dropped by the way, it will be better; but should the state of the river have become uncertain, the importance of having them before the dry season sets in, renders it expedient to send them by any...

Your favor of the 25th. Apr. came to hand only yesterday. I am contented with the sale of my tobacco at 41/. but am uneasy at the account given me of it’s quality by mr Craven. if you think it’s quality was such as ought not to have commanded the price, I authorise you to make whatever abatement you think just to the purchaser. you are to place 19,000. ℔ of the tobacco made here by Craven at...
I have to acknolege the receipt of your favors of Mar. 26. & Apr. 1. and to thank you for the speedy effect given to my draught in favor of mr Richardson. 4. hhds of my tobo. left this yesterday. there are still 9. to go. they will make between 19 & 20,000. I am not in the least alarmed with the late [decline here?] on the price of tobo. this is not an article which is up one day & down the...

I now inclose the remaining halves, arranged exactly in the order of those sent yesterday, so that you may have no trouble in tallying them. the 10. D. bills are sent entire. I percieved on reflection on the balance of the account rendered, that 1500. D. would not meet the paiments noted in my...
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...
I have to pay to James Oldham 82. D 06 C for which purpose I inclose you a bill of 100. D. and take the liberty of writing him that you will pay him the balance abovementioned on application.   I have deferred till now, calling for my winter’s supply of coal because I knew it would be wasted in weather which did not need it.

I recieved by mr Randolph the 300.

I wrote you on the 17th. of April accepting 7. D. for my tobo. by return of the post which brought the offer: and on the 21st. I inclosed you the manifests of the Albemarle part of it. those of Bedford you had before. I have not heard whether you closed the sale. I expect that fine hams for table use can be obtained in Richmond & it’s vicinities; by which I do not mean large, but rather small...
Your account came to hand before I left Washington but it was in the hurry of preparation for departure which prevented my attending to it’s contents. observing now that there is a balance against me, I this day desire mr Barnes to remit you 250. D. to cover it. if you can send me a cheese or cheeses to the amount of 20. or 30. 1b. I will thank you. the poorest quality will suit best, as it is...
