V.C. for James Key, to be remitted at Key’s request to mr Brydie . the money is deposited for safe custody in the bank of the US. mr Key’s distress for the money is great, & mr Barnes assures me a draught on Richmond is not to be had here. the purport of this is to ask of you, if you should have occasion for a draught on this...
Your favors of Jan. 26. & 31. came safely to hand. what you decided on the subject of the molasses was according to my wish, and I would only desire my former order on that subject to be complied with in the event of it’s falling to the price then mentioned. I expect by this time you will have recieved 3. tons of half crown rod from Monticello, which I return to mr Roberts as unfit for my use....
Your favor of the 12th. inclosing a Treasury draft for $:800—& an order on the Treasurer of the James River Company in favor of Mr. Barnes for whatever sums of principal or Interest there may be due from the company to Mr. Short, is duly received.

On presenting your order in favor of Mr. Barnes at the Office of the Treasurer of the James River Company, we were informed he was out of Town and that they could not ascertain to a certainty the sum due Mr. Short; for which reason they requested I would hold the order until Mr. P.s return , as they expect him in about a week. The sum however which they think due is £127–16–8—£74–5– being...

Only 28 bundles of the half crown nail-rod is yet brought down; the balance being left on the way, the boatman having taken in an over-load. The balance I suppose will shortly be here. I have paid Mr. Thomas Gordon the sum you directed & am Dear Sir Your Very humble...
I mentioned in a former letter that 3. tons of nail rod, too large for my use, would be brought down from Monticello, & desired you to hold it till I could get mr Roberts’s order to whom it should be delivered in Richmond to his use. he now authorises me to have it delivered to Joseph Anthony, merchant in Richmond. I will ask the favor of you to do this, if the rod is come down, & to send me...
Your’s of the 5th. is this moment come to hand. I learn from home that 69. faggots of rod were sent from thence. I hope they will be safely delivered to you, as it would be very inconvenient to me to advance cash in lieu of them. I have written 4. different letters to mr Eppes & my daughter , by post to Petersburg, and not one has been recieved. I therefore take the liberty of inclosing one...
I should before this have sent you Mr. Anthony’s receipt for the 28 bundles of nail-rod that are down, and which I have delivered—but he is from home, and his Clerk refuses to grant a receipt, as he says he has received no instruction upon the subject. This information I should have given you sooner, but Mr. A has been expected from day to day ever since I received your letter; I however think...
I wrote you on the 6th. since which I have recieved your’s of the 5th. being indebted to mr Lyon the printer 10. Dollars, and perhaps something more for his magazines, I have desired him to call on you for paiment, which I pray you to make him. I put the letter to him under your cover, lest a letter from me to him might excite the officious notice of the post office. I forwarded to mr Randolph...
Mr. Anthony’s Clerk being at length instructed to receive the nailrod I inclose you his receipt for that which is delivered; the balance has not yet come down. I sent your letter to Mr. Eppes by the way of Petersburg having a few days previous to the receipt of it got one from him in which he desired me to write to him in that way; it is therefore unaccountable how he came not to get your...
