On the 12th Ulto I troubled you with a Letter respecting my Consignment of Flour to D: J: Adams in the Brig Fairfax to which I beg leave to refer; since the date thereof I have been advis’d to send a more Authentick power of Attorney; which I now do, and shall, if you can serve me in this affair acknowledge it as a very singular favr. It is not in my power to make out an Acct with any...
I wrote to you on the 14th Ulto to which I refer, having heard nothing from, or of, Danl Jenifer Adams since. By the Swift Lawe Sanford Master I consign you 500 Bushls of Indian Corn which please to sell for the highest price you can get, and after sending me the several articles under written, remit me the Balle in Cash by return of the Vessell. I should be glad also to receive the other...
You will be surprizd perhaps at the frequency of my Letters—I wish I had less cause to be troublesome to you—but having receivd Information of late, that my Affairs in the hands of Mr D: J: Adams are in a very desperate way, & vigorous measures necessary to be pursued, I send you a Copy of the power of Attorney which I forwarded on the 12th Inst. to Norfolk (in order to get the Seal of the...
Your Letters of the 29th of June, 3d and 8th of Augt and 3d of October are all before me, and I cannot help complaining of the great hardship and injustice done me in detaining the Brigantine Farmer Six Weeks at Port Morant till the purchasers of Mr Adam’s Herrings could take them away, and replace Rum from different parts of the Country. Surely such a thing was never done before! What more...

I am much indebted to you for the many unanswered Letters you have been pleased to write me, & thank you very sincerely for the trouble you have had in the management of my business with Mr Daniel Jenifer Adams; but as my Connexion with that worthless young Fellow began in an ill-fated hour, so has it continued, and is like to end. From his idle, and ill formed expectation of obtaining...
Your favours of the 29th of March, and 8th of April are now before me, but did not reach my hands till the 10th Instt as I only returnd from New York the 8th after an absence of 30 odd days from home. I think myself exceedingly obliged to you for the care and attention you have given to the business I took the liberty of employing you in but fear it will avail me little. Mr Carlyle in my...
The Inclosed Letter, is occasiond by a Paragraph in one of your Letters to Messrs Robert Adam & Co.; and I should be obliged to you to make use of it, or not, as circumstances may require; for it is not my wish to proceed to any harsh or rigorous measures by which a Man just setting out in Trade may be injurd if there is a possibility of avoiding it. The Inconsistency however in Adams’s...
