I recieved yesterday your favor of Feb. 27. and one hundred Dollars inclosed in it. it was only one of the smallest size of Peacock’s ploughs which I wished to recieve: consequently his N o 4. would not answer my purpose. I have usually got my stock of red clover seed from the other side of the Blue ridge , but am quite disappointed there this year; and am therefore obliged to apply for it at...
I safely recieved the clover seed by mr Peyton’s boat Johnson again disappointed me in taking down 36. barrels of my flour, instead of the full load of both his boats. I shall no longer trust to him alone therefore, but on the return of the Milton boats (all of which went down at the same time) shall employ others to take down the whole. in truth I begin to be uneasy lest the market should...
The season of paying my debts now coming upon me I requested you in my letter of the 15 th to make some remittances for me, to which I am now to add one of 200.D. to Benjamin Jones of Philadelphia , ironmonger, and another of one hundred and thirty Dollars to Ezra Sarjeant of New York printer. I do this on the presumption of the sales of my flour, as it gets down, putting you in funds for me....
Your favor by the last post is recieved. I am sorry a load of my flour has turned out so badly. the mill will have to make it up in good flour in addition to 100. barrels I am still to recieve from it and forward. I It is unlucky that the embargo catches me with so much unsold. I expect however that as soon as the merchants have had time to fix on a channel of vent, it will rise again. the...
Your favor of the 16 th is safely recieved with the 200. Dollars it inclosed. with respect to my flour on hand it is proper I should adapt my former minimum of 8.D. to the times. I leave the price therefore to yourself entirely, with the observation that it is better to lose a little by selling for less than may perhaps become the market price, than to lose the whole by holding off too long....
I am just returned from a visit to Bedford , whither I had gone to ascertain & settle my crop of tobacco. I found that my former manager, Griffin , had very greatly mistaken the quantity of tob o he expected to make. he had been very confident of making as much as in the preceding year. as he had never before disappointed me by a mistaken calculation, I had fondly hoped to have cleared myself...
Your favor of the 9 th has been duly recieved, together with my account. by this I percieve that there does not remain enough in your hands to pay the 2000.D. into the bank which I so much wished. this has been occasioned by the deficiency of my tobacco crop before explained, and recently here by the short delivery of 140. barrels of flour due to me from the mills, and for which I see I must...
Th: Jefferson asks the favor of mr Gibson to have twenty Dollars remitted to the bank of Fredericksburg subject to the order of mrs Mary Dangerfield of Coventry near that place. he is sorry that a circumstance which forbids his writing even the letter of notification obliges him to request mr Gibson to have such an one addressed to mrs Dangerfield of Coventry near Fredericksburg . PoC
Your favor of the 3 d came to hand after the return of our post. the afflicting news of the death of my relation & our mutual friend had reached us thro’ the public papers two or three days before, and I have since recieved a particular account of it from his fellow passenger mr Fontaine Maury . of a worthier man death can never deprive us. altho’ his intention intended return was unexplained,...
I inclose you a bill of exchange for 988.03. D drawn by Smiths & Morrison of New Orleans on Brown & Hollins of Baltimore at 60. days sight. to shorten the term a little, as a post was setting out for Baltimore direct, and I was intimately acquainted with mr Hollins , I inclosed the 2 d of Exchange to himself, and he will have recieved it before the Richmond mail carrying this will have left...
