My wagon will set off in the morning with two more hogsheads tobacco, which I hope will find a favorable market. The delay in sending it has proceeded from the continued moisture of the weather which prevented its preparatory order. The next load will not be sent until the commencement of our harvest. I subjoin a memorandum of articles which you will please send by the return of the wagon. You...
The box containing the bound newspapers has come safe to hand; one of the volumes in an improved state. I hope my request did not hurry their return before you had done with them. Should it have so happened they are not beyond your reach. I find that I have more reason for apology than you had, for the delay in returning Sullivan’s libel on Mr. Jefferson which you left with me. It was put into...

I have recd. your two letters of the 12th & 16th. the former with bill of articles sent by Aleck which came safely to hand. Your clerk in summing the articles made the amount $283.15 instead of $183.15 an inadvertency readily corrected. It would be unreasonable not to be satisfied with the sales of the two last hogsheads of tobacco & I hope we may prove as fortunate in the two my wagon will...
I have recd. Sir, your letter of the 13th. I was acquainted with your father when a resident in Philadelphia, but I have no recollection, if I ever had any knowledge of military services rendered by him to the U. S. during the Revolutionary War. There is an error in supposing that we were in battle together, having not been myself in any of its battles. With friendly respects— FC (DLC) .

I have just received the enclosed letter returned to me from Richd. to which I had directed it, taking for granted it would either find Mr. Butler there, where his letter to me was dated, or follow him, according to an arrangement for the purpose.
