I sent you on Saturday last by A. Row’s boat 155. ℔ bacon, 1 dozn. bottles of Center, and ½ dozn. bunches Cord, agreeably to your request; together with a box of fish which was left here by a Boston Captain, who did not know from whom he received it—not having signed any bill of lading for it. I am Dear Sir Your Very humble servt. I did not take particular notice of the chairs, but from my...
We have at length heard from the person in Smithfield (Mr. George Purdie) of whom enquiry was made some time ago respecting hams. Mr. P. is a person remarkable for curing good bacon; he writes that he has not any of his own, but that he thinks he can get from among his neighbours such as will suit your purpose. We have therefore requested that if he can procure such as you describe, he will...
Your favor of the 12th. inclosing $:50—on my private account is received. I have to-day received a box of dum-fish, and a keg of tongues and sounds for you from New York. I am somewhat apprehensive they should go to Washington, but I cannot suppose if that had been intended, that Mr. Barnes would have directed them to be sent to my care—I shall therefore forward them to Monticello. I concluded...
An absence of some days from Town has prevented my sooner replying to your favor of the 29th ultimo.—It is seldom that any of the wines you mention are to be had here—and when to be had, must of course come higher, than they do in the Northern Towns; as we get our small supplies of those kinds entirely from thence, with the exception of a small proportion from Norfolk. I am Dear Sir Your Very...
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...
No more of your Tobacco has yet arrived. I have only the four hhds, of which I some time since informed you.—One I find must have been left on the way, as I have manifests for five.— I forwarded the day before yesterday by Mr. Cravens Waggons the whole of your groceries &c—with 20 Bushls of Coal—some of the books might have gone, but it was late in the day, & I did not know without seeing Mr....
I received some little time since from Messrs. E O Liveira Fernandez & Co. of Norfolk, two Hhds of bottled wine, which I have forwarded to Monticello, together with a hhd of Molasses, and 16 bottles (being all I could procure) of syrup of punch. I am sorry to inform you that 3 Hhds of your Tobacco were ducked a few days ago in a Mr. Burfords boat—and which evidently proceeded from...
James sets off with the ewes in apparently good condition: it would be well however for them to be occasionally examined, as I am told that a part of the flock have the scab very badly. I suppose you know that by proper treatment, if taken in time, it may be cured very easily. The Pauler & Aquirrez are distinguishable by the marks P & A with tar.— James likewise carries the goblets, together...
I am desired by Mr. John H. Craven to request the favor of you to procure & forward him 2.½ bushels of clover-seed, as there is none to be had here.—I fear I shall not be able to get a vessel to take so small a quantity of coal as you require; it being but seldom that such small ones offer, as could take no more, & not often that larger ones partly engaged, are to be met with. say then if you...
I inclose you Capt. Wingets receipt for 1100 bushels of Coal, being so near the quantity you want, that we thought it best not to wait for a Vessel that would carry exactly what you require. Heth & N. inform me it is taken away from the yard as fast as they can get it down—which causes that now sent to be not so large as usual; as they have but very little out of which to choose. I am Dear Sir...
