Your favor of Jan. 13. is recieved and a statement of my account to the 1 st inst. when I percieve a balance against me (exclusive of that of the bank) of 301. D 90 C M r Randolph was to have paid for me the 1 st Inst. thro’ his agent mr Norris something upwards
M r Mazzei’s repeated urgencies to sell his lot in Richmond could not leave a moment’s doubt as to the expediency of accepting a reasonable offer for it. but the research for the powers he gave me has taken considerable time, & ended not satisfactorily. I remember certainly the recieving from him a blank power of Attorney giving express power to sell his real property here. (I had long before,...
In a separate letter of this date I have written to you on Mazzei’s business, and in this I inclose a plan of his lot, omitted to be put under cover of that. I am engaged in the blowing of rocks with gunpowder and my stock being nearly out, and none to be had here, I must ask the favor of you to procure & send me a keg of 25.℔. to be packed in an outer one or in an external box, & forwarded by...
By a letter of the 12 th inst. from my manager in Bedford he informed me that his first load of flour was engaged to start from Lynchburg on the 15 th inst & that the whole would be sent off the same week. there are there about 140 barrels. from this place I have at length got off 60. barrels by Johnson who will now continue steadily to carry it down till all is done. the quantity here will be...
Your favor of the 3 d is recieved and the 50.D. it covered. should there be difficulty in remitting the 97.D. to Alrichs & Dixon of Wilmington by a draught a Richmond bank bill of 100.D. I have no doubt would be acceptable to them and the surplus 3.D. will make no odds, as I shall probably have to call for a roving machine from them in addition to that for carding. to the 3000.D. I have added...
In my answer of the 7 th to yours of the 3 d of Mar. I omitted to note what you had stated as to the bargain for Mazzei’s lot, to wit that the paiments were to be made within so many days after a sufficient title shall be made. I now expect daily an answer from mr Randolph after which there will be no delay in making what I deem a good title. but if mr Taylor should deem it otherwise, I take...
I recieved the day before yesterday mr Edmund Randolph’s answer that he would execute any deed I should desire for mr Mazzei which should bind go to warrant only against himself & his heirs. I have thought it best to make a statement of the title which the purchaser may consider, and verify every material part of it for himself by the records at Richmond . he will see that the title is so...
The enemy, contrary to expectations, still continuing in our waters and indicating by no movement an intention of speedy departure, with the rapid advance of the season, begin to fill me with anxiety as to the fate of my crop of flour. and I am becoming more concerned to get some price, than what that price shall be, on the principle that half a loaf is better than no bread. engagements...
On my return from Bedford I found here your two letters of Apr. 28. & May 4. I now inclose the note for 4300.D. signed. the deed to mr Taylor I immediately executed and forwarded to mr Randolph : but as the mail is slow between this & his residence, and it is to be acknoleged by him in his court and by me in mine, this will occupy time. but it will be all done & delivered before the 1 st...
Yours of May 29. with 150.D. inclosed was duly recieved as is that also of June 5. I should not be for recieving the paiment of the monies for mr Mazzei before they are due on any other discount than of legal interest, say ½ per cent per month. I inclose you a letter I have recieved from mr Edmund Randolph , by which you will see that he executed our joint deed to mr Taylor on the 22 d of May...
