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 must ask the favor of you to send me by return of post 200.D. I drew on you the 20 th inst. for 91. D 34 C in favor of Robert Rives . I leave to your judgment whether it would not be better to sell the good hogsheads of my tob o separately. we think th e re must be three of them of good quality, that is to say the last, and two of the former parcel judged here to be perfectly equal in order...
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.

I must rely on your friendship to be on the watch for this maximum, and to be furnished at the close of the period with a certificate by which I may settle with the purchaser. that of Albemarle I shall have...
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 have duly received your favors of the 21 st and 26 th with the inclosure mentioned in the last. Wheat having fallen as you were informed by M r Coles on Monday the 19 th — that is, no sales having been made at 9/. after
I have received of M r Griffin W. & R. Mitchell’s dft on Robert Gamble for 600$ due the 5 th of next month , which is accepted. I now inclose a note for your signature, to renew with at the Bank.—I also inclose 3 blanks, which, if you think proper, you can fill up and return, as it will save you the trouble of frequent applications.

Will you have the goodness to inform me if it will not be necessary, previous to my departure to Lisbon , to go to Washington ? It occurs to me that verbal as well as written instructions may be desirable. As yet I have received none, not even an intimation as to the bond which I observe the law requires. I would ask this information of M r Monroe , but I have been too decidedly hostile to...
