Have you succeeded, or are you likely to succeed, in procuring the Hemp seed I required? The fly has got into my Wheat, very generally this Fall; and I lay my account for great ravages thereon next Spring; which makes me more desirous of laying (to use a Sea term) an anchor to windward for something else. I congratulate you and Patcy on the birth of a “Manchild” —My best wishes attend the...
The Carriage is sent agreeably to Mrs Peter’s request; and we shall expect to see you by three ’oclock. Mrs Washington has been exceedingly unwell for more than eight days. Yesterday she was so ill as to keep her bed all day, and to occasion my sending for Doctr Craik the night before, at midnight. She is now better, and taking the Bark; but low, weak and fatiegued. Under his direction. Her’s...
Enclosed are Notes for two hogsheads of Tobacco—as below—Nanjemoy Warehouse, paid me for Rent. If you can sell them in George Town it would oblige me; either for Cash, or on a moderate credit. If you cannot, they may be returned, or retained until I come up to the meeting of the Potomac Company the first Monday (5th day) of next Month in George Town. I earnestly hope that this meeting will be...
I have had the enclosed Tobacco note by me sometime. Too long perhaps for the best Market. If Mr Peter (your father) whom I presume is a good judge of these matters, should be of opinion that it had better be sold now than wait longer, for a rise in the price of that article, I pray you to sell it for what it will fetch. I give you this trouble because the Tobacco is in the Warehouse at George...
Letter not found: to Thomas Peter, 1 Feb. 1799. On 1 Feb. Peter wrote GW : “Your esteemed favor of this date” arrived.
Your letter of yesterdays date was received last night; & I consent to Ship the 4 Hhds of Tobacco which I have in the Warehouses at George Town, & the 2 at Nanjemoy, in Mr Carltons Ship, & to his friends in London; supposing them to be good men—for they are strangers to me. I shall rely on him to order Insurance thereon. The freight & Primage seems high, but if it is paid by Messrs Wilson &...
Your letter of the 29th Ulto came duly to hand. I had no expectation of getting such a price as I mentioned to you in my last, for the little Tobacco I possess: but rather than take 7 a 10$ pr hundred, I would (as it has been obtained without any advance of Cash) ship it, and run the hazard of a foreign Market. But you have not informed me whether there be, at George Town, any Vessell that...
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...
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...
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...
