I perceive, by an advertisement of yours in the public papers that you have commenced business in the Commission line. I have heretofore employed in the transaction of my business at Richmond, Mr. Charles Johnston, who has executed it with the greatest punctuality [and attention]. Rendering to him a just tribute on every occasion I feel myself bound on several grounds to transfer the mite of...

Yours of Jan. 28th. is duly recieved. in mine of Jan. 14. I mentioned that Colo. Thos.

I this moment recieve your favor of the 1st. inst. & am alarmed at the account of my nailery being out of nailrod. I left them with a provision to last till late in April, but whether it had all got home, or was still at Richmond my memory does not tell me. a person happening to be with me when I opened your letter who tells me he was in mr Johnston’s warehouse the 1st. of Feb. & saw a...
I yesterday recieved a letter from mr Jordan Harris informing me that an irregularity in the assignment of Lucy Wood’s bond to him occasions a demurrer to it’s payment under the caution expressed in my letter to you that it should be legally assigned. the caution was a reasonable one, as we should naturally expect an assignee to take care that his title be legal . however not wishing to be...
I inclose you a bill of lading for a box containing a harpsichord, and another containing plants, sent by the Sloop Sally capt. Potter, who sails with a Northwester which will probably place him at our capes speedily. both packages should be sent up by water , and as the plants will fail unless they have a speedy passage I must pray your immediate attention to them, that they may go by the...

Potter, which sails tomorrow morning. be so good as to forward them, when recieved, by the Milton boats. No. 28. will perhaps require new wrapping, being hinges done up in paper, as they were not thought of till all the other packages were...
I recieved yesterday your favor of the 14th. and am well pleased with the sale of my tobacco: for tho’ if no check were to happen I think it would continue to rise, yet considering the critical affairs of this country, & still more of England, I think a check very possible, & that it must take place this summer, if at all. the price obtained secures my making two paiments of 1200. D. each in...
My last to you was of the 20th. of May, since which I have recieved yours of May 23. and 28. and June 1. I am entirely satisfied with the sale to mr Hooper; the chance run, being one of those necessary to meet in the ordinary course of business. as this sale was made to meet two paiments of 1000. Doll. each to mr Wickam and mr James Lyle which were in fact stipulated for earlier days, I am...
