M r Edmund Randolph’s indisposition has probably prevented as yet his attendance at his court to acknolege and forward the deed for mr Mazzei’s lot. the first court of Albemarle after he shall have forwarded it to me, it shall be dispatched. I presume that the deed having been actually executed, as before advised, the delay of the formality of acknolegement will occasion no hesitation in mr...

Your favor of the 24 th is recieved and the 700.D. therein inclosed. I have a letter from Derieux of the 8 th a paragraph of which will shew you that he is conscious of having no legal claim on mr Mazzei it is in these words. ‘our destiny, Sir, is in your hands. and if you will, you can yet save us from the deplorable situation which threatens us, by becoming our father & benefactor [advocate]...
I drew on you lately for 43. D 27 C in favor of the Mutual assurance company , and must now ask the favor of you to send me by the return of post one hundred Dollars in bills from 20. to 5. D. I find it will be indispensable to reinstate 1500.D. of my late note in the bank: for within a fortnight of from this time I shall be obliged to draw on you from Bedford for 600.D. in favor of Brown &...
In my letter of Aug. 10. I informed you I should draw on you from Bedford for 600.D. in favor of Brown & Robertson . this I accordingly did; and from the same place made three other draughts in favor of the sheriff of Bedford for 111.D. Nimrod Darnell 50.D. & Jeremiah A. Goodman 37.50 D it is questionable however whether this last will be called for. in the same letter I mentioned that I...

I have no hesitation in accepting these prices, preferring the latter at 60. days to the former in cash. if these prices therefore are still to be had, or even 5.D. be so good as to sell at once. I see nothing in the late news which may suddenly raise prices. the moment Johnson returns, I have...
I have duly recieved your favor of the 19 th with the 300.D. inclosed. I was sorry to learn that my letter had not got to you in time to avail me of the momentary demand for flour. I wrote by the first mail after hearing there was such a demand. but these advices reach us too slowly, and therefore I had entertained a hope of your selling without waiting to consult me. I think it impossible but...
