My last by Mr Danl McPherson, would inform you, why I did not write more fully by that opportunity. and my attendance since on the Business of the Potomack Company at the Great Falls, is the reason of the delay, in doing it untill now. Your letters of the 10th Decr & of the 12th 17th & 18th of last Month are before me, & Such parts of them, as have not been answered, & appear to require it,...
Your Letters of the 16th and 25th Ullto are before me. The draft upon Mr Wales for £20 enclosed in the former was duly discharged by him. The order for one hundred barriels of flour enclosed in the letter is herewith returned—Altho’ the Cash, as any thing that could produce it, would be very acceptable to me at present, yet I am not so much in want of it as to sink 20 per Cent to obtain...
I have received your letters of the 17th & 21st Insts. the latter containing a Draft on Mr Josiah Watson for one hundred pounds, which he informs me shall be paid agreeably to the sight mentioned. I have no objection to the Gentlemen who are proposed to settle the line between Mr Scott and myself; and I think with you that the sooner it is done the better. When it is completed I would wish you...
I have just received your letter of the 4th inst. and the 50 pounds sent by Mr A. Morton. Mr Wales accepted the order upon him, and says he will endeavour to pay it when it becomes due, but as the time of payment has not yet arrived I cannot say anything decided upon it. It is not in my power to send a person to meet you at Leesburg as the time which you mentioned to be there is already...
Since I wrote you last I have received your letter of the 28th of Novr—Although you could not make out an exact settlement of the Accts, as they stand between the Tenants and me, I wish you had returned me a list of them, and the Lotts on which they live, with the Rent each man pays. I see no advantage that is to be derived now, from my being on the Tenemants. As you have power, and your...
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 27 Oct. 1785. In the Thomas Birch’s Sons catalog no. 683, April 5–6, 1892, this letter is described as “Acknowledging the purchase of 1000 bushels of wheat from Battaile Muse, for which he agrees to pay 6 shillings per bushel.”
I have received your letter of the 6th instt but not inclining to take your surplus wheat, on purchase, will order it to be ground & packed, subject to your order—As you did not direct what kind of flour it should be made into—it will be fine only—unless you should in time direct otherwise. I lost very considerably by the delay of your wheat—In the first of the Manufactury of it I had a brisk...
A few days ago by a Mr Hickman, who either is, or wants to be a tenant of mine in Frederick County—I sent you a dozen blank Leases. The tract on which he says he is fixed, is part of two Lots which I purchased at the sale of Colo. George Mercer’s Estate, in the year 1774; a plat of which I send you, that the whole may be arranged into four tenements—as conveniently disposed as water &c. will...
Your letters of the 15th & 26th of last month are both at hand, with respect to the latter, I agree that Daniel Harrel may have the Lott No. 2 on the terms mentioned therein. and you may fill up leases accordingly. In answer to the first letter, rather than involve my self in uncertain Lawsuits—but certain expence & perplexities, I would allow for paper payments of Rents the same as specie—But...
I have received your letter of the 7th Inst. together with your account, a List of my Tenants, and £8.19.4 in Cash. It was not my intention to have wounded your feelings by my last letter, as you say I did—I only meant to express my earnest desire to have a Rent Roll of my lands under your care, and not knowing the causes which prevented its being made out, I conceived that so long a delay of...
