I was taken on my journey with sore eyes, and have continued so ill with them, & still am, as to be unable to do business almost entirely. nevertheless my anxiety on account of payments I have to make in Philadelphia obliges me to address you. on sending my accounts to my nailcustomers on my return home, I find them as much unprepared for prompt paiment as if they had never expected my return....
I have to acknolege the reciept of your favors of July 26. and Aug. [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. This is exclusive of Mr. Short’s dividends left in your hand for his purposes. Having now to pay...
A most astonishing derangement of our post has rendered it almost useless as the channel of communication. your letter of July 18 . was 25 days on it’s passage to me, that of Aug. 9. was 16 days; so that instead of 8. days as formerly letters are now never received under 16. days from Philadelphia & from that up to 22. and this is not all; for I recieve those letters now by a return post, so...
Your favor of Aug. 25. is duly recieved & the glass doors arrived at Richmond. I am filled with anxiety on the subject of the nail rod last ordered, as a failure to recieve it will stop my works. I hope therefore mr Roberts will have exerted himself to forward it. […] I send a statement of our account as it will stand (as nearly as I can make out) about the 7th. of October. you will perceive...
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...
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...
Your last at hand was of Aug. 25. mine of Sep. 16. which I hope you recieved safely. it contained advice of a draught in favor of mr Roberts , on which subject he wrote me the 28th. of Sep. before mine to him of this 16th. had got to his hands. I hope that mine will have anticipated his [desire].—I recieved under cover from you a letter from a mr Griffiths No. 4. Pine street. I take the...
My last to you was of June 21. since which I recieved yours of June 20. & 23. and this moment that of Aug. 6. I now inclose a letter for mr Roberts for a new supply of iron to be sent off by the 1st. of Sep. I observe you have paid mr Short’s instalment for Aug. 1. if my statement be right you have about enough in your hands of his money & mine to meet that of Sep. 1. & for that of Oct. 1. you...
Your letters of May 24. & June 8 . have been duly recieved, and but for an inadvertence as to the post day, should have been acknoleged by the last post. all the articles forwarded by you have come to hand except the half dozen square railed Windsor chairs bought in 4th. street. as these are not received, and mr Jefferson says nothing of them in his letters, I presume they never came to his...
I wrote you on the 26th. & 31st. of May ; since which yours of May 26. is recieved. I observe what you say on the price of tobo. at the same time with your letter, I recieved one from mr Remsen of N. York, advising me on the same subject. the manufacturers there offered me 11. Cents a pound if they should like the quality, & he advised me to try 10. hhds. I accordingly directed mr Jefferson to...
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,...
I gave my servant an order on you in favor of Henrietta Gardner , washer-woman, for fifteen dollars. he says he has lost it. be so good therefore as to pay him that sum if not before paid on account of Dr Sir Your most obedt. servt The woman brings it herself RC ( CSmH ); at foot of text: “Mr. Barnes”; endorsed by Barnes.

On the same ground I have this day drawn on you in favor of Charles Johnston & Co. for six hundred and fifty dollars payable Oct. 3. Be pleased also to credit Peter...
The [derangement] of our post still continuing, this is the first moment I have an opportunity of acknowleging the receipt of your favor of the 1st inst. announcing your return to Philadelphia. I hope it to have been safe from that time, tho’ we have had such warm weather here as made me apprehend a revival of the fever with you. I thank you sincerely for the very kind offer of accomodations...
Your two favors of the 10th. & 18th. came to hand yesterday. the post which leaves Alexandria Monday morning gets here Thursday morning. a recollection of this may shorten the passage of our letters. mine of Saturday morning ought to be at Alexandria Wednesday evening & with you Thursday morning. so that 11. or 12. days are requisite for a letter & it’s answer. I will thank you on the reciept...
My last to you was of the 24th. of June, since which I have recieved yours of June 29 . July 1. 3. & 7. I am sorry my omission to write a week sooner should have left you that much longer unable to contradict the useless fabrication on which you are so good as to express so much sensibility. I have never in my life enjoyed higher or more uninterrupted health than since I left you in...
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...
I wrote you last on the 31st. of Aug. acknoleging your’s of Aug. 9 . that of the 11th. of Aug. did not get to me till the 4th. inst. having been 24. days on it’s passage owing to the derangement of our post which still continues & almost annihilates all benefit from it. it does not, I believe affect the passage of letters from hence to Philadelphia. by the time you recieve this you will be...
Know all men by these presents that I Thomas Jefferson named in a certain letter of Attorney from William Short of the state of Virginia late one of the ministers of the US. abroad, bearing date the 2d. day of April 1793. and now lodged in the bank of the US. thereby constituting me his attorney with full powers to act for him in all cases as validly as he could do himself were he personally...
A neighbor of mine having a right to some military lands , I carried his papers to Philadelphia; but when presented at the War office they could not be passed for want of some formalities a first and second time. I think they now fulfill all the requisitions of the law; and I must ask the favor of you to present them at the war office to the proper clerk & to obtain from him the paper usually...
