I have made diligent search after M r Nelson ’s box, but cannot find it.— Cap t Hand I understand belongs to Philadelphia , or to Alexandria ,—he is however frequently here: I will make a point of ascertaining what he has done with the box, on his return to this place.—I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you at Monticello in the course of the spring or summer. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text:...
I inclose your last quarterly account, which shews a balance in your favor of $:207.43.— Eleven of the boxes lately received for you were forwarded by M r Randolph’s boats on the 30 th ultimo , with a Hhd of Molasses.— There were no herrings to be had. RC ( MHi ); at foot of text: “Thomas Jefferson esq r
I have received eleven Hhds of your Tob o , which the person who sent it informs me is all there is. It is inspected, and is said by those who saw your crop last year, to be greatly inferior to it. I do not suppose it would at this time command more than 5 $, if even that; there being scarcely at any demand at this time for Tobacco, except for that of a very superior quality, which would suit...
I hope that you will have received the trunk N o 28, as it certainly is not here. I thought I had been particular in counting the last packages sent you, but suppose I may have made a mistake, & that perhaps has caused you to make one.—I find from referring to the bill of lading, that there were only 3 trunks, N os 26, 27, & 28.—I have no recollection of having received one at any other time—&...
Sent by M r Randolph’s boat— 29 th Ap l 1809 A box lately received from George Town , 2 barrels of cut herrings, & a bag of Cotton (50 ℔s ) 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 send you by M r Randolph’s boat two boxes which we have lately received.— There is some nail rod & bar iron which I had reserved, but Ben cannot carry it.—If you find you will require it before M r R’s boats will be down again, be pleased to inform me, that I may forward it by others. RC ( MHi ); endorsed by TJ as received 4 June 1809 and so recorded in SJL .
The two boxes mentioned in M r Gelston’s letter were received, but Major Gibbon called soon after, with a letter from Cap t Tingey of Washington , saying that one of them belonged to him, and had been forwarded to us by mistake.—it is still here, waiting for a good opportunity by which to send it to Washington .—There is no direction on the box, a card appearing to have been rubbed off.— I am...
Since writing you by this mail, a M r James Scott has called on me, with a few of the papers which must have come out of the lost trunk. M r S. lives within about five miles of Charlottesville , and, having been waiting for some Tobacco which he expected down the river, he concluded to go some miles up it, in the expectation of meeting the boat. He found the papers about a mile above the locks...
I have duly received your favor of the 12 th , and have selected the house of Gordon Trokes & Co , as being the most eligible in my opinion for the supply of your groceries.—They consent to receive payment half annually, which is more I expect than any other house here would do for such articles. I doubt however if you will be supplied even on nearly as advantageous terms, as you might be from...
