I inclose a note for some more sashes to be made by Mr. Trump, as we have put up those he furnished before, and find them well made and according to directions. I would wish these now ordered to be made as early as possible so as that payment may not be due till the 1st. of July; for tho’ I shall immediately order my tobacco to be sent on to you, yet it will not produce cash till July 1. I am...
After parting with you at Philadelphia, I recollected that the box which Mr. Johnston was forwarding to you for me, went from this place and contained a large tooth and another bone of the Mammoth. I must ask the favor of you to open it and to take the tooth, have it packed in a box of exact size, to be directed to ‘the Prince of Parma,’ and delivered to the Chevalier Yrujo, Minister of Spain,...
Just after closing and sending away my letter of the 18th. Mr. Lott desired me to pay you for him 40. Dollars which I undertook to do. The last post day however escaped me without observing it: so that there has been a fortnight’s delay not at all imputable to Mr. Lott . Be pleased now to debit my account and credit his by that sum, or perhaps it might be a dollar or two or some cents more,...

[10.] the former covering your account to July 24. balance in my favor 6[…] since which your’s of Aug. 10. advises the acceptance of my draught in favor of […] Lott for 47.25 which consequently leaves me in your hands only 14.36.

I wrote you on the 2d. inst.

Your favor of Sep. 29. is at hand. The paiment to Mr. Bache is right. Myself and some of my neighbors have to pay for some of the pamphlets of Callendar, which they have desired me to do for them. Be so good therefore as to pay him twenty dollars on my account. He is to be found at the printing office of Snowden & Mckorkle No. 47. North 4th. street. If you will be so kind as to send a note...
Colo. James Monroe having immediate occasion for a sum of money in Philadelphia , I have concluded it better to let him have Mr. Short’s quarter’s dividends payable the 1st. instant, than to leave them lying in an unproductive state, on the expectation now beginning to be weak, of Mr. Short’s arrival this autumn. I therefore inclose you a power of attorney to receive them, and as I do not know...
