The distress in which I am to meet debts of the most pressing urgency obliges me to remind you of the arrearages due to me on the mill account. according to the account rendered by yourself to the 1 st of last July there was then a balance acknoleged due of 650.09D my acc t made it more. this difference was left to Jefferson to settle with you, and it was agreed between you to arbitrate it as...
Yours of the 24 th was recieved yesterday. the clause of arbitration in the lease was a sufficient provision between Shoemaker and my self because we understood every part of it in the same way. so it was with mr Randolph & M c Kinney. but you and myself differ so materially and in so many points that to enter into a contract with opposite meanings & to propose to go thro’ it by arbitrations...
Under the idea that you thought of engaging a partner in the lease of the Mill I had suspended the proposing to sign the agreement between us. but understanding that the prospect of such an engagement is more uncertain, I now inclose you the paper which was prepared for the last lease, but omitted to be signed from mutual neglect or confidence; it is a copy of the articles with Shoemaker;...
Your letter of the 18 th recieved on the 21 st shews that our recollections differ very considerably; but it proves also that we do not agree on the conditions of leasing the mill I offer it on the terms expressed in the lease, according to my understanding of them, and according to the understanding and practice on them by all the tenants heretofore. you will not consent to them but on a...
Yours of the 8 th was duly recieved. on the question of any suspension of current rent the facts are very simple. the sinking of the floor of the mill house which was within my care and responsibility having deranged the boulting geer which was under yours, I thought myself bound to repair it and accordingly Gilmore, at my expence, put it into as perfect order as it ever had been, and I stood...
I have some debts here which press very sorely on me; for the paym t of which my only resource is my cash balance at the mill and my return to Bedford moreover depending on their payment I am obliged to trouble you with the subject. Mr C. Peyton to whom I have ab t 600. D to pay wrote me 2. days ago that you would accept my ord. in his favor which would suit him. I did not chuse however to...

I recieved yesterday an alarming account of the of danger there is of the mill floors being crushed down by the weight with which they are now loaded. I went to day to examine into it, and indeed I found it most imminent, and every moment to be expected. on the garrett floor is about 150,000 ℔ and on the ground floor about 120,000 ℔, making a whole of 270,000. weight and the danger is proved...
I mentioned to you some days ago that I had a note in the bank of the US. for 1000.D. which I was notified at the time must be paid up at it’s term, and could not be renewed. as I sent it with a blank date to be filled on the day of actual discount, I do not know the precise day it is due, but I know it is between the 1 st & 7 th of July. for this I have no earthly resource but the balance due...
Your’s of yesterday was recieved last night. you need take no trouble about the flour balance, till you have it of your own; and as to the damaged 27. barrels I mean to bear my own part of that misfortune, so that you have nothing to make up on that account. I set out tomorrow for Bedford & shall be back by the 20 th . mr Bacon will be starting about that time for Missouri , and will want some...
Your letter of the 20 th has been a week getting to my hands. I am sorry that mr Colclaser , after the pointed assurances I gave him, should still have doubts about the work at the mill. I will not suppose he doubts my intention and he could not have doubted the means had he calculated. for what is to be done? the lower broadside of the house is to be secured by from coming further out from...
You need not hurry yourself at all as to the extracts from your Day-book. a letter from George Stevenson to mr Randolph just recieved gives the uneasy information that your son Eston is very ill at Baltimore . indeed he says that he is in imminent danger. his case is an inflammatory fever. having given this cause of alarm, mr Stevenson will undoubtedly write by every mail while the crisis...
On casting my eye over your account I observed that I should have to ask the favor of you to have me furnished with the details of the flour delivered, to wit, a statement of the dates, quantities & persons to whom delivered, without which I cannot settle either with the boat men, or mr Gibson . I imagine you take the boatmen’s receipts by which th ey stand charged to their employer. a...
I sincerely regret that we happen to see the same subject in lights so very different, with respect to the mill . but the rent of a real property must, you know, be a fixt thing. as it’s original cost cannot be varied, so the interest or rent on that cannot vary with daily and transient occurrences, and especially on a lease for time. it is easy to reduce a rent, but impossible to raise it...
Your letter of the 10 th was handed to me yesterday afternoon only when the Shadwell mills were built, the rent was settled on great enquiry made in this state as well as in those North of us, at one out of every 24. Barrels of flour expected to be manufactured, and to be taken at the place of sale. we supposed the Shadwell mills would manufacture 5000. Barrels of which, according to this...
The account rendered to-day is perfectly satisfactory, as the not having known of the 9. barrels of family flour subsequent to the last account , had alone excited doubt and a wish for you to examine it. I inclose you a statement as I suppose the account now to stand PoC ( MHi ); on verso of reused address cover of John Adams to TJ, 30 Sept. 1816 ; at foot of text: “M r T. E. Randolph ”;...
In answer to the enquiry of yesterday , I think the that the proposition for Mann to serve on his half pay until a vacancy may entitle him to whole pay, may be very properly made to the Secretary of the navy either by Mann or yourself, on the reasonable ground of unwillingness to let him be idle, and a preference that he should be learning what is to be the business of his life. still, as they...
I have subjoined to the lease an acknolegement that the rent of the next year is payable in flour as you desired . I wish I could, even by possibility postpone the October payment to January. but I shall not have one Dollar through the remainder of this year but the rent of the mill, having exhausted all other funds, even of credit, in the purchase of corn, and oats, by the total failure of my...
In my letter of the other day I mentioned that the credit of 122.50 D for corn formerly bought from mr Bankhead as mentioned by Col o T. M. Randolph , was correct, and reduced our balance to 176.26½ D since that, having occasion to pay mr Fagg 49.58 D and not having the money, he told me it was due to you, & that an order on you would answer his purpose, which accordingly I gave him, & it...
From the account you were so good as to furnish me I make out the inclosed statement for the last & present year. as to the first year is of flour specifically, both the crop and rent being consisting of flour only. the balance 67. Barrels. the 2 d year’s account being for flour as to the crop, and money as to the rent, I carry on the balance of 67. Barrels to the flour acc t of the 2 d year...
I have this morning written to the Secretary of the navy , to sollicit a midshipman’s warrant for Mann . the bearer of this letter carries that to the post office so that it may go by tomorrow’s mail. it was more direct and certain to address it at once to the Secretary of the navy , and I have requested him to inclose the warrant to Mann , at Baltimore to the care of George Stevenson . I...
As mr Randolph and yourself have the Shadwell mill in partnership this year and the details of it’s business, on account of his absences, will chiefly fall on you, I submit to you the following considerations as to the rent. while Shoemaker held the mill the rent was fixed in money at 1280.D. a year payable quarterly. when mr Randolph and M c kinney took it they wished it to be fixed in flour...
The purchase of Pantops renders it necessary for me to understand exactly the conditions of the lease you have on it. M r Eppes has always told me they were exactly the same as those of my lease to Craven , which was agreed between yourselves to be the model. indeed I have some faint recollection of having drawn the articles myself on that model, at the request of mr Eppes , or perhaps of both...
Thomas E. Randolph in Account with Th: Jefferson D r Cr. D 1809. May 15. By balance on account to this day due T.E.R. 7.41 1810. Jan. 1. To rent of Lego for 1809 160.00
I ought perhaps sooner to have informed you that mr Crav. Peyton had assigned to me your note for 201.49 D to which is to be added the rent of the last year . the present is merely to give this information, as I shall set off tomorrow for Bedford & be absent some weeks. having some heavy paiments to make at our March & April courts any aid towards these would be acceptable, without meaning...
Mr. Higginbotham presses me for the paiment of which your rent was to make a part. as soon therefore as your convenience admits I would sollicit the paiment, to be made to him. I would not urge it but that he has been entitled some time to expect it of me. I salute you with affection esteem MHi : Coolidge Collection.
The rent which you mentioned as due for Lego I will ask you to be so kind as to pay at your convenience to mr Higginbotham, to whom I am in debt a sum of money and promised him he should recieve all my rents. I have mentioned this to him. I propose setting out tomorrow morning for Washington. I salute you with friendship & respect. MHi : Coolidge Collection.
When I settled here with mr Shoemaker, I told him you had informed me you had an order on me from him, of which however I was not in possession, and would therefore, pay the balance found due from me (60. some odd dollars) either to him or to you. he said I might pay it to him and he would settle it with you on his return, & I did so. I intended to have informed you of this the last post, but...
