Your favor of the 20 th came to hand last night only, and the same post brought me an answer from mr Morton which I inclose for your perusal & consideration, with a request to return it to me. mr Morton is a native of this state, not personally known to me till lately, but long ago much recommended to me by many here; but most particularly by mr Coles , who was much with him in Bordeaux ,...
After an absence of five weeks, I returned home the day before yesterday, and found here your favors of May 18. & 24. & June 16. and 22. I am much rejoiced that you have been able to compleat the sale of Gen l Kosciuzko’s Pensylva bank stock, and to transfer it to the new loan of the US. there I know it will be safer than in any deposit on earth and will place him beyond those risks which...
By the present post I desire mess rs Gibson & Jefferson to remit you 360.D. for Gen l Kosciusko , being the interest on his money in my hands for the last year. I am labouring & employing all the resources I can spare to wipe out my Washington debt paid for me by the bank of Richmond . the crop now going to market reduces it so that the one now preparing will clear it off entirely. this done,...
Yours of the 9 th came to hand last night, and the course it suggested was like a ray of light beaming on my uneasy mind. indeed I know that had I time to consult Gen l Kosciuzko he would be delighted with the opportunity of accomodating me. and I accede to it with the more readiness, because before his departure he made me the depository & sole executor of his will , by which it appears his...
I have just recieved your favor of the 15 th and learn with concern that a doubt can exist that our friend Gen l Kosciuzko may have failed to recieve his remittance of 1810. for as to that of 1811. mr Barlow’s safe arrival ensures it. of that of 1810. the 1 st 2 d & 4 th of Exchange were sent by different opportunities thro’ the department of state, and altho’ I trust they have been recieved,...
I have just recieved a letter from Gen l Kosciuszko , desiring me to remit his whole principal to him in France . the letter is without date, and as I conjecture was not only before the late revolution , but before our peace . it seems to indicate a state of despair of recieving his remittances regularly, and of his distresses for want of them. in consequence of these changes, however, as...
I have just recieved from Gen l Kosciuzko a duplicate of his letter of May 30. to which he adds this P.S. ‘you render me a great service by the arranging arrangement with mr Morton to whom I owe many thanks for the most obliging manner in which I have been treated at Paris , and for the exactitude of his correspondent.’ this channel then being so agreeable to the General we had better adhere...
On my return here from Bedford after an absence of 7. weeks I find here your favor of the 2 d inst. covering a letter from Buckley & Abbot which I now return. in your P.S. you request 1. the original Certificates of the 12,500.D. 6. p.c. US . stock, 2. two powers for you to recieve the interest of the stock at the Treasury and dividends at the bank of Columbia .
Know all men by these presents that I Thomas Jefferson of Monticello in the county of Albemarle Virginia do hereby constitute and appoint John Barnes of George town Columbia my true and lawful Attorney for me and in my name to transfer into the name of Thaddeus Kosciuzko , heretofore a General in the service of the United States , and at present of Switzerland , all the stock of the United...
Your favor of the 6 th is duly recieved, and was communicated to mr Randolph , who, as I informed you is sole tenant of my mills , which he holds from year to year, the year beginning the 1 st of July. he has no disposition to recieve a partner, because as he found to be the case in his late partnership his property became liable for all the losses while he had recieved but half the...
