We have since my last received 152 bbls of your flour, which we have been compelled to sell at your lowest limit of 9$ cash. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r ”; endorsed by TJ as received 9 June 1811 and so recorded in SJL .
I have duly received your favor of the 7 th inclosing Mess rs Shoemaker & Son’s conditional dft on G. & J. for 200$.— As we have heard nothing of their flour, have never transacted business for them at all, and know nothing of them, except of their bad manageme n t at your mill, we of course cannot become responsible even for this small amount, until we have something actually in hand.— As...
As it is very seldom that I see M r Randolph’s Harry , I must ask the favor of you to direct him to call for the negroes blankets.—They should have been sent up sooner, but the person of whom I bought them did not like to open a bale, for fear of the moth: he has lately been opening some, and called upon me to take yours away.—I had them baled up again, but not so securely perhaps that the...
I only yesterday received your favor of the 24 th ultimo .—the note however was in time, but had one hour only to spare.— I suppose that your letters must have been too late for the mail, for the dft to M r Lyles dft Lyle has not yet appeared.— the one to M r Higginbotham did, in due time.
I have reserved specially for yourself the following observations. the proposition of mr Gibson’s going to Lisbon in your stead even for a time, should not be made. nobody respects mr Gibson more than I do, nor is better-satisfied that he would, under all situations, do what is right. but the temper of this country towards England is at this time very high. the Senate are always averse to the...
Your favor of the 1 st leaves me no hope of recovering the trunk N o 28.—it confirms me in the opinion that I sent four trunks, than which I never had been more confident of any thing in my life, until by referring to the bill of lading, I found that you had only three: but since the receipt of your letter, it occurs to us that W m A. Burwell had an empty trunk here, which we find is gone. It...
I inclose as you direct 200$.— I likewise inclose an account of the sale of your last 54 barrels of flour, the net proceeds as you will observe, being $:429. ¹⁷⁄₁₀₀. —This should have been forwarded some time ago, had I not received a letter from you informing me there was more to come down, which induced me to keep it back, with the view of including the whole in one account. As however no...
M r I. Coles was mentioning to me to day a sale of tobacco by mr Carter , his brother in law, the other day, under the hammer as he termed it for 39/6 tho the remnant & most indifferent of the crop, & that his brothers had sold in this way for high prices for two years past. the sale he says was by his agent there (perhaps of the name of Gwathney ) by getting some merchants together to bid...
Lest your failing to forward a note in time to renew yours in the bank should occasion you some uneasiness, I have concluded to inform you that it has not been attended with the smallest inconvenience: the situation of G & J’s account in the bank at this time being such, as to enable them to raise the money by putting in their own note. Had it been at all important, I should probably have...
The goblets received of Letellier are in one of the small packages mentioned in my last. one of the others I am told contains a Map from M r Robertson of Orleans .—the remaining two are paper packages, one of them appearing to contain books. RC ( ViHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r ”; endorsed by TJ as received 16 Sept. 1810 and so recorded in SJL
