I recieved last night your favor of the day before & this morning I obtained the Speaker’s order for reserving the desk of the H. of R. for mr Glendy on Sunday next, where many of us will be glad to see him. should he arrive here before half after three on Saturday I will expect him to dine with me, as well as yourself if you accompany him. Govr. Bowdoin accepts his appointment, but is too...
Do you forget promises, or do I recollect what never happened? I think you were to send me a package (of whatever size they are from 1. to 200 ℔) of Moka coffee, and a box of Florence wine as a sample with permission to ask for more if I found it good. if this was not so, I will pray you now to send me those articles by any vessel coming to this place or it’s vicinity. I left your friends in...
Your favor of the 16th. came to hand last night. the supply of Florence was proposed on the mutual supposition that you had a surplus to dispose of, beyond your own provision. that not being the case, I cannot consent to break in on your private stock, notwithstanding the obliging proposition of mrs Hollins, and my respect and thankfulness for it; and I hope this letter will be in time to...
With many thanks for the kind attentions you have paid to my little commissions, I now remit you the amount of the articles shipped as advised by yours of the 21st. is it possible to remit 80. or 100. D. to Leghorn? & through what channel? Accept my salutations of friendship & respect. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
I have duly recieved your favor of Dec. 29. and have certainly every disposition to do for your friend what would be gratifying to you, as far as consistent with the laws which I have laid down for my own conduct. but I have made it an invariable rule never to intermeddle with the appointments of the governors. from my own difficulties in the exercise of that duty, I know what theirs are &...
A little transaction of mine, as innocent an one as I ever entered into, & where an improper construction was never less expected, is making some noise I observe in your city. I beg leave to explain it to you because I mean to ask your agency in it. the last year the Agricultural society of Paris, of which I am a member, having had a plough presented to them, which on trial with a graduated...
I recieved last night your friendly letter of the 21st. being determined that no act of mine, which may be avoided, shall give countenance for clamour to the enemies of the government, or trouble to it’s friends for justification, the sentence on the cotton seed is irrevocable. in answer to your enquiries I will observe that it is usually planted in May, and that the seed being very full of...
Your habits of kindness to me present you always first, when, wanting any thing from Baltimore , I look around for some one who will procure it for me. having made my last bow of Adieu to politicks, and emptied my head compleatly of all it’s concerns, I am become a mere farmer devoted to it from interest & inclination. we find plaister as beneficial to our lands as perhaps to any whatever, &...
Altho the late change of Weather from cold to warm has probably relieved you from an embargo so much more effectual than the one we tried, yet I take the chance of the post to anticipate the departure of the plaister and to pray it may be sent in the rough according to the advise of mr Pitt as mentioned in your’s of the 9 th . we are in the habit of grinding it at my own mills. P. Carr is...
I recieved your favor just as I was setting out on a journey to this place, & learnt at the same time, the arrival of the plaister at Richmond . by this post I desire mess rs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond to remit you the amount, 80.40 D with which be pleased to accept my thanks for this & other favors. On my way here I passed a day with mr Nicholas , Warren being on my road hither. he still...
