The inclosed letter being of importance I take the liberty of asking you to give it a conveyance. Should any vessel be going directly to France that would certainly be the best way of sending it. Otherwise if put under cover to your correspondents in London, and by them put into the post office there, it will go safely to Paris where the postage from London to Paris is always paid. If put into...

I received duly your favor of Dec. 21. and with it the several articles noted to be sent therewith, except No. 1. a box of wine. I had observed in my memorandum that there were two No. 1s. and had desired both to be sent; and both are so marked in your letter: but the waggoners concurring in their declarations that one only was delivered, I am in hopes it was omitted by error, and that it may...
As I shall shortly set out for Virginia, and shall have occasion there for some necessaries, I take the liberty of stating them herein, and of asking the favor of you to send them to me by the first conveyance after the reciept of this. Any waggon going to Charlottesville may deliver them at Colo. Nichs. Lewis’s, unless my own were to be passing, which might carry them directly to Monticello....
Your several favors of Aug. 30. Sep. 24. Oct. 7th. and 8th. have been duly received, together with the articles thereon noted to have been sent. The French brandy and the Lisbon wine both tapped by the waggoners, tho’ the latter was in a double cask. They knocked out the head of the outer one. I will leave directions with Colo. Nicholas Lewis, who superintends my affairs, to make paiment of my...
Be so good as to send to this place for my use two gross of bottles and 6. gross of corks, and add them to the account you make out for Mr. Lewis. They will arrive here after my departure, but orders relating to them are left. I take the liberty of sending to you 3. large boxes addressed to myself in Philadelphia. 2. of them contain books, the other a musical instrument . I must beg the favor...
I have your favors of the 29th: Ultimo and 4th: Current and thank you for the information therin contained. I have no late letters from France but the Publick Prints bespeaks a Civil War, should that take place property of every kind would be subject to certain risk and deters me from availing myself of your advice. Tobacco of New Crop may now be Purchased at and under 3 dollars at which Price...
I have just desired Capt. Maxwell at Norfolk to forward to you 6. packages of furniture arrived there for me, the numbers and contents as below stated. I must beg the favor of you to receive them and pay the river freight &ca., from Norfolk for which I have desired Capt. Maxwell to draw on you. They are to be forwarded to Monticello; when a good opportunity offers. If my own waggons run at...
The trouble of the inclosed commission I have been willing to impose in the first place on my friend D. Hylton. If therefore he is at home, I will beg the favor of you to stick a wafer in the letter and send it to him. But as I know he sometimes takes long journies, and I am anxious to have done what I have therein desired, I must in that case ask the favour of you to do what I did not mean to...
A former letter to Mr. Andrew Donald having miscarried, perhaps from a wrong address, as I know not his residence, I take the liberty of putting the inclosed under cover to you and asking the favor of your care of it as it is of some importance.—My information from Marseilles is that wheat finds a good market there, and will do so till harvest. I am Dear Sir Your most obedt. servt, PrC ( MHi...
