Not being able to find such a Cask of Sicily Madiera Wine as I liked, concluded to send but ten gallons at present, & wait until a better parcel was rec d , before I send a larger quantity—if you will let me know when this is out, will send you some better which is expected. I expect to go up in the stage with this, on my way to Lexington for a week, & shall regret if I am unable to call on...
I forwarded to shadwell mills, a day or two since, a keg of Tongues & sounds, & a package of dumb Fish, for you, just rec d from M r Coolidge of Boston, which I hope will reach you safely— MHi .
Yours of the 17th: is now before me. Your Tobacco from Bedford I have never yet heard from; I have rec d from Albemarle, since last fall, 430 Blls Flour on your a/c, and finding no prospect whatever of selling it here, to advantage, ship d it long since to the Eastward, where I hope it will yield you a better return than could possibly be anticipated here, if indeed a sale of it could have...
The balance of Trade being in favor of the North at present, we cannot obtain dfts: in that direction, I have however written to M r E. Copeland J. of Boston, to draw on me at sight, for the acc t you specify, on ℀ Messrs: Dodge & Oxnard of Mersailes, which will no doubt be very satisfactory to him. MHi .
The enclosed was sent to me, no doubt, thro’ mistake—I thank you for its contents, and regret the trouble you have been occasioned in relation to it. M r Madison has sent his Tobacco to this market for some years past, & may now be without an agent for the sale of it, & under that impression I offer my services to him:—his former agent, altho’ still living here, since his failure, will...
The half ton Ground Plaister you order, in yours of the 6th:, is this day forwarded, by a Boat, to Shadwell Mills, care Ch s Vest.— MHi .
Your favor sof the 27 & 29 th have both been rec d , the former covering one to Messrs: C & A. Warwick, which I deliv d , & the collector has commited to deliver the articles, which I will forward by first careful Boatman, care Ch s Vest, at Shadwell Mills, & will pay M r Warwick’s bill of chg s on them—Nig l Gibbon will expect, after they are opened, an invoice of their contents, & value, to...
Your esteem d favor of the 21 st is to hand, & contents observd. The dfts: you intend to draw shall be duly honor’d when presented. I am glad to hear you are recruiting again in health & stength—the approach of spring weather will I trust be beneficial to you. I suppose Jefferson will be down soon to arrange the scheme of your lottery, the sooner the better, as many tickets might be sold to...
It affords me heart felt pleasure to inform you that your bill has passed the Senate, and is now a law of the Land—It was rec d in that body yesterday morning, read three times, (the rule of the House being suspended for the purpose) & passed forthwith, only four voting in the negative, (viz.) Ruffin, M c Carty, Morgan & Armisted.I hope it will afford you the most ample relief from your...
I have great pleasure in informing you that your bill was ordered to be engros d to=day by an overwhelming majority, a very few indistinct naes only heard, tomorrow it will pass without a division, & in the Senate the minority will be about four to six against it, probably none:—this will be cheering news to you I hope, & verify what I predicted in my last, that when understood, & reflected...
