Taking it for granted that Mr Anderson gave you his opinion of Mr Threlkalds English Cattle, I shall only add that his advice to me is, to take only the Bull, at the price you mentioned—viz.—Forty guineas. I shall be obliged to you therefore to let that Gentleman know that I will take the Bull at the above price & will send for him on any day he shall name. I am not inclined to offer less than...
Your letter of the 16th, and its contents, came safe, as you will perceive by the enclosed receipt for the money. As neither your letter of the 16th nor Patsey’s of the 15th, has taken any notice of one written to her by Mrs Washington of the 14th and committed to the care of Mr White (Commissioner) we are left in doubt as to the receipt of it —I shall just mention, therefore that the purport...
Your letter of the 14th with the money, Tobacco notes & A/c from Colo. Deakins, came safe; but not ’till yesterday. I will endeavour to recollect that I stand indebted to you for change—but it is more your interest than mine that it should not be forgotten. Be so good as to let me know if the two Tobacco notes would sell in George Town, & at what for Cash, or on credit of 60 or 90 days?...
⟨I have⟩ been duly favored with your letter of the 2d of July; & enclosed are the two Tobacco notes which were forwarded to me by you—and another which had been paid some time before to Mr Lear—Nos. &ca as below—and request the favour of you to dispose of them in safe hands, for what they will fetch. In this case giving 60 or 120 days credit will make but little difference with me; a...
In discharge of Rent, for some land I have in Charles County, State of Maryland, I have received the Tobacco—noted below. If it will sell in George Town for its worth, I would thank you to dispose of it along with that last sent you, on the best terms you can, and it will much oblige Dear Sir Your Affecte Servt ALS , DTPF ; ALS (letterpress copy), DLC:GW ; LB , DLC:GW . The hogsheads of...
Letter not found: to Thomas Peter, 25 July 1798. On 28 July Thomas Peter wrote GW : “I have received your two Letters of the 15th & 25th Current.”
Your letter of the 9th was handed to me yesterday—enclosing one from Colo. Deakins, and a Tobacco Note as below—for which I transmit a receipt. I am ignorant of the principle, on which I am called upon to pay for picking a Tenants tobacco; but presuming it was proper, I thank you for having done it. And I pray you to add to the expence as much Tobacco as will make the Hhd sufficiently heavy:...
If this letter should get to your hands, it will be presented by Mr William Booker of Richmond, who, last year, erected my Wheat Machine, and has lately made some alterations therein—by which, yesterday, in two hours and a quarter, it got out Sixty eight bushels of Oats; And it is supposed will, with ease where the Wheat is good, & tolerable well laid, get out one hundred bushels of the latter...
I am much as you left me yesterday—Weak, but (I hope) gathering strength. You have a receipt, at the foot of your A/c for the money paid me yesterday—In the one sent you some time ago to be forwarded to Mr Veatch it was mentioned that the 18/9 was to be charged to the A/c of Chas McDeavitt. Doctr Thorntons plan is returned with thanks; our love to Patsy & the Children; to Mrs Law also—with...
Just as I was on the point of sending the letter which covers this note, to the Post Office, Mr Law came in; I therefore detained it, for his conveyance; & hearing of some very extravagant—indeed almost incredible prices of Tobacco shipped to London (for instance three hundred & ninety odd pounds paid for five hogsheads) I have been disposed if my Six hogsheads (when the last is made of sufft...
