I paid Doctor Currie agreeably to your direction 50$:—which however, he returned some days ago, as he said the referees for whom it was intended, refused to receive any compensation: he has lodged with me some papers respecting that business, of which I suppose he has informed you. I paid Mr. Eppes some weeks ago on your account £16.4. with which I imagine he has acquainted you. I am Dear Sir...
Doctor Currie informs me he put into your hands all the papers in David Ross’s case which had been confided to him. I will pray you to send them on to me by [post?].—the money which was lodged with you for Borduron, will not be called for he having been paid through another channel. it will stand therefore to my general credit, and what you recieved for mr Short I shall exchange with mr Barnes...
I received two or three weeks ago of Mr. Creed Taylor 60$. on account of Littlebury Mosby’s bond to Mr. Short. I should before now have given you this information, but Mr. T. informed me that he should make a further payment in the course of a few days—he however left Town ( having been on the assembly ) without again calling. I inclose you under two seperate covers the papers left with me by...
Having received a letter from Mr. Barnes last night in which he desires us to remit him the 198.$: mentioned in your last , we conclude that you find you will not have occasion for it here, and therefore forward it to him agreeably to his direction.

Mr. Taylor has to day made me a further payment of 130.$ on account of Littlebury Mosby’s bond to Mr. Short; this he says will be the exact balance which was due on it, provided Mr. M. is correct in saying that he paid Colo. Skipwith 100$ on account of it—but which Colo. S: does not recollect. So soon as this point is ascertained Mr. T. has promised me a copy of the settlement, which I will...
Your’s of the 10th. is recieved, and I have desired mr Barnes to credit mr Short 130. D. as recieved from you, and to place them to my account: so I must desire you to debit mr Barnes & credit me the same sum, to save the risk of actual remittance. it will serve to cover my current calls with you.—I must get the favor of you to send a hogshead of molasses for me to Monticello before the season...
I have duly received your favor of the 16th. and have in compliance therewith given you credit by Mr. Barnes for the 130:$ received of Mosby for Mr. Short. The cyder has not yet arrived from Norfolk; which however, as yet, is of no consequence, as it could not have been forwarded, in consequence of the low water. There have not I believe been a dozen boats down from Milton in 5 or 6. months. I...
I now inclose your account made up to the first of this month, by which there appears to be a balance due us of 45/8. The Hhd of Molasses you will observe from the account, was forwarded some days ago. The Cyder has since arrived, but we have not yet met with an opportunity of sending it up—but which shall be done by the very first that offers, together with the Corks. The bottles I am sorry...
I yesterday forwarded the Cyder and Corks, together with some things written for by Mr. Randolph, at the request of your manager —by a boat belonging to one of the Faris’s . I observe in Mr. R’s list that the same number of Corks are mentioned as in yours; and as I expect they are intended for the same purpose, & bottles are not included in his—I hope they find that none will be required. I am...
Your favors of the 2d. and 3d. are recieved, and I will attend to the having some funds remitted to you. you will recieve shortly a quarter cask and 2. boxes of wine shipped to you by mr Sheaff of Philadelphia, some nailrod and hoop iron from Roberts & Jones, to which will perhaps be added a quarter cask from Robertson & Brown of Norfolk, all to be forwarded to Monticello, where I expect to be...
By a vessel sailing this day for Norfolk mr Barnes sends 16. packages of groceries &c addressed to mr Taylor, to be sent on to you. these being for use while I shall be at Monticello I must pray you to forward them by the first boat, as they will, with good luck, only arrive in time for me. accept assurances of my affectionate esteem PrC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Mr. George Jefferson”;...
I have lately received, and have to day forwarded to Johnston & Richardson of Norfolk, to be by them sent on to Mr. Barnes by the first opportunity, seven dozen of Mr. Macons hams; being all that he can spare. I am endeavouring to make up the quantity you require, and hope shortly to procure such as may be relied upon. The two boxes & Cask of wine from Philada. arrived some days ago, and were...
I have procured from Smithfield and have forwarded to Norfolk to be sent on to Mr. Barnes as before, six Casks containing six dozen hams; which from the character given them I hope may prove as good, as perhaps even Colo. Macons. The groceries, including a cask of wine from Norfolk, arrived a few days since; and were to day forwarded on to Milton, with 80 Bundles of nail-rod, & 8 of hoop-iron....
I arrived here the day before yesterday on a visit of one fortnight [only and am] in hourly hope of seeing my groceries [arrive] from mr Barnes as well as a quarter cask of wine from Robertson [and Brown] of Norfolk. I have never heard yet from Bedford [whether my tobacco is] down or not. on my departure from Washington I [desired] mr Barnes to remit you 300. dollars on my account. accept...
I am setting out this morning on my return to Washington. being in want of 500. lb. of bacon here for our workmen, I must ask the favor of you to procure and forward that much by the first safe boats to Gabriel Lilly my manager here and in general to answer his applications for what he may want here, without my special order, as his discretion may always be trusted. I have not heard from mr...
Mr. Craven Peyton of Albemarle, to whom I owed a balance of 131.47 D has desired me to remit it to meet a paiment he has to make in Richmond. lest he should be in Richmond or on the road, I have thought it best not to send it to Albemarle, but to lodge it with you to be delivered to himself or his written order: and I give him notice by another letter this day sent to Albemarle that he may...
Your favor of the 8th. is duly received. The letter which it inclosed for Mr. Craven Peyton, shall be held subject to his call. I forwarded the day before yesterday 504 ℔. bacon to Mr. Lilly agreeably to your direction, that having been the first opportunity which has offered since the receipt of your letter on the subject. the same boat brought down a Piano forte to go to Philadelphia, which...

In compliance with the desire expressed in your favor of the 12th., I have been endeavouring to get an offer for your Tobacco, but no one seems disposed to make a positive one, unless I were authorised to make sale of it. Should I be authorised to sell it at such a price, a Mr. Rutherfoord tells me that he thinks it probable he will give 4.¾$ Cash, or 5$ at 90 days. this last price however I...

Mr. Eppes is, I expect, by this with you—if he is not, have the...
Yesterday arrived our packages sent up by the boats. I find that during my stay here we shall want another supply of a couple of [hogsh.] more of syrup of punch, which therefore it will be as well to get at [once and] forward when practicible as the boat-navigation is precarious. By yesterday’s post [I learnt] that mr Short arrived on the 28th. at Norfolk, & is to proceed via Baltimore to...
I yesterday sent you by direction of Messrs. Watson & Higganbotham 20 Bushels of Coal—I likewise forwarded by R.

Having been requested by Mr. D.

I am duly favor’d with yours of the 8th., and shall endeavour to dispose of your Tobo. to the best advantage.

I some days ago drew an order on you for 79.69 D in favor of Burgess Griffin for my taxes in Bedford; but fearing it may not get to his hands in time to deliver to his sheriff William Trigg before his departure, I pray you to pay him on demand with or without the order. but I believe the true sum should have been 76.92 but of this he can inform you. On the 21st. inst. I drew on you in favor of...

Mr. Derieux has for years past urged such perpetual demands on me for charity, that I have long since gone beyond the proportion which he had a right to expect of what I can give in charity, and consequently has been infringing on what other objects had a better right to. I have therefore for some time rejected his applications. he makes one now however under circumstances to which I cannot be...
Your favor of the 22d. ultimo inclosing a letter for Doctor Bache was received here the 25th., but it so happened that it was filed away without my seeing it, and it was not until this morning a few moments before the closing of the Charlottesville mail, that I observed it.
