Having to remit the sum of 100. D. to Mr. John W. Eppes, and not certain of the safety of the post between him and Richmond, I have thought it better to deposit the sum with you subject to his order. I therefore inclose you a postnote of the Richmond bank in favor of W. A. Burwell & indorsed by him to yourselves, which be pleased to recieve & pay to the order of mr Eppes. Accept my friendly...
There were lately shipped for me from Philadelphia 1. box of grape vines, and 4. open boxes of Monthly strawberries from Italy. altho’ from the account I recieve of the latter they seem irrecoverable yet if there be any hope of life I would ask the favor of you to give them to any careful gardener in Richmond, who will hereafter furnish me with some roots from them, if they live. their value...
Your favor of June 1. is recieved, and the sale of the tobacco as therein mentioned is approved. the terms of 3. 4. and 5. months being long, might they not be reduced to 1. 2 & 3. by taking notes from the purchasers negociable at the Richmond bank? this would of course make to us the difference of the discount, which would be of little consideration: but it must depend on the form of the...
I now inclose you in Richmond bank bills 970. Dollars, and have this day drawn on you in favor of Charles Smith of Louisa for 621 . D. James Oldham 100 .
Will you be so good as to procure & forward for me to Monticello two or three dozen bottles of Syrop of punch by the first boats? MHi : Coolidge Collection.

MHi : Coolidge Collection.
I was to have paid mr James Lyle a thousand dollars in the course of the last summer, which was not done. I expect my tobacco from Poplar forest is now arrived at Richmond or is on it’s way thither, consigned to you. I wish therefore either that a part of it to the amount of that value should be delivered to him, or that you should pay him that amount out of the first proceeds of the sale when...
I now inclose you 150. D. in Richmond bank bills to cover a draught I have this day made on you at sight in favor of Nathaniel Gordon of Orange or order for 133D. 25 I send from hence by a vessel bound for Richmond which sails tomorrow 10. casks, & 17. boxes, besides 3 or 4 boxes of which I do not know the marks & numbers. the captain’s reciept will be inclosed. I have written to mr...
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...
