I did not receive your Letter of the 4th of June seasonably enough to return an Answer so soon as you may have expected. I cannot inform you with any precision what the flour made of the 500 bushels of wheat sent to my mill is worth, as I am informed that flour has risen to the Northward, and the short crops of wheat this season will undoubtedly have a great effect upon the price of it. I...
Not till within these two days did your letter of the 11th of last Month get to my hands. I have sent your advertisement to the Printer and as soon as the number of copies are struck they shall be forwarded to you. My former letter containing my sentiments respecting the flour at my mill, I have done nothing in it since rather wishing that you would pursue your own judgment with respect to the...
Although it is my wish, & desire, that the Papers belonging to the deceased Colo. Fairfax was in the hands of his Executors, or in those of any other whom they may think proper to appoint to receive them—yet, prudence dictates to me the propriety of an order from them for their delivery. This, as I have never seen your power of Attorney—and as you decline sending your Waggon for them now, can,...
I want to change my seed wheat, but do not incline to sow any but of the white kind, I shall be ready to commence my seeding in a few days and if you have of this kind, ready, either of this, or the last year and will receive payment for it out of your collection of my Rents, I should be glad to have sent me from one to three or four hundred Bushels.—I will give the Alexandria price at this...
In an overhaul, and arrangement of my papers, I have found an agreement (and Bond for the performance of it) with your father; by which he was to convey all the right, title, and interest which he had in a tract of 7276 acres of Land on the Great Kanhawa, to me. This, I beleive, was accordingly done; but it runs in my mind (though Colo. Pendleton undertook to see to the recording of it) that...
I have lately received two letters from you, one of the 14th & the other of the 25th of last month. The Bonds which you have taken from Mr Whiting had better remain in your hands until they are discharg’d. And by the time you propose to be at Belvoir, in April—I will endeavour to prepare a proper rental for you, if it shall be in my power, from the pressure of other matters. It was always my...
As the fifty Bushels of Wheat stands as an article of charge at 5/6 in your account against me, it may remain so as a final settlement of the matter—Although I have no flour at present for sale and have made no enquiry into the price of this article, I do not suppose I shall either loose or gain much in so small a quantity by fixing the Wheat at this price. With respect to the persons named in...
I have received your letter of the 19th Inst. and Mr Lear has, agreeable to your request therein, called upon Messrs D. & I. McPherson & Wm Hunter Junr Esqr. who have informed him that the money shall be paid conformable to your advice. It would have suited me exceedingly well to have discharged my proportion of the assessment on the Potomack Company in the manner mentioned in your letter,...
Both your letters of the 16th have come safe —As you have engaged the Clover Seed of Mr Wormeleys Manager I will take one Bushel of it, though I had no idea of giving tha[t] price, as I could have got the same quantity from Philadelphia (I suppose equally) good for half the sum if I had applied in time—If you send it to the care of Mr Hartshorne in Alexandria, it will come safe, and the sooner...
It would seem by your letter of the 3d instt that you had not received my last; in which I desired that whatever money you had, or could command of mine, might be sent to me; or an order drawn on some responsible person in Alexandria; as I was much in want of it. This request I now repeat, as I have, since that time been disappointed of other sums wch I thought myself sure of receiving. &...
