A cask of clover seed marked TMR. is gone to the address of...
I have to acknowlege the receipt of yours of Mar. 4. and to express to you the delight with which I found the just, disinterested & honorable point of view in which you saw the proposition it covered. the resolution you so properly approve had long been formed in my mind. the public will never be made to believe that an appointment of a relative is made on the ground of merit alone,...

I am now sending off a messenger to Milton for them. if they arrive before the departure of this letter they shall be inclosed. if not, some other private conveyance from our [court] shall be sought, so at farthest they shall go by the next post.

I wrote you on the 17th. of April accepting 7. D. for my tobo. by return of the post which brought the offer: and on the 21st. I inclosed you the manifests of the Albemarle part of it. those of Bedford you had before. I have not heard whether you closed the sale.

Yesterday your’s of the 7th. came to hand. I am very glad you have sold my tobacco. the expences of my outfit are so very heavy in the beginning that I shall labour hard for three or four months to come. I wish it were possible to find some means, other than bank bills, to make you the remittances of 300. D. June 16. for Bell, 800. D. July 12. for Shore, & 500. D. July 16. for Haxhall. I do...
I acknowledged yesterday the receipt of yours of May 28. and have not since seen mr Barnes . but as I have to remit you a larger sum in the course of a week, it will certainly be better that you retain the 679.84 D of mr Short’s in part of what I have to remit and mr Barnes will place so much here to the credit of mr Short. I only wish that these new exchanges may not enter into the account...
By a letter recieved this day I find that Mr. John Watson has recieved in Albemarle 100. D. in part of the 285. D. which I had desired you to pay him. consequently you will have had to pay him 185. D. only. as this difference will probably, with the 679.84 D exchanged with mr Short, cover your [loss in part] for me to Bell on the draught of mr Eppes , & [such other] draughts as have been made....
I inclose you a treasury draught on Colo. Carrington [for] fifteen hundred dollars to meet mr Eppes’s draughts on you [for] 800. D. payable to Dr Shore the 12th. and 500.

No. 8. is wanting being a barrel containing 15. loaves of sugar & 60. ℔ of coffee. the receipt given by the boatman expresses only 11. packages, which he delivered.

Your’s of the 17th came to hand yesterday. there being little prospect of recovering my cask of white sugar & coffee (which contained 15 loaves of sugar & 60. ℔ coffee) or at any rate in time for my use here, I must ask the favor of you to send me by the first boats 8. loaves of single refined sugar, and 30. ℔ coffee; to which be pleased to add a cask of about 50. ℔ of good gunpowder.—I am in...

I recieved by the last post your favor of the 7th. covering a copy of my account with you.

I shall...
In my letter by mr Garrett I informed you of my draug[hts in] favr. of Yancey, Garrett, & Clarke. after that I drew on you in favor of John Sneed for 50. D. and of Anthony Robinson for 15. D.—I have not yet had an opportunity of applying to mr Davidson agent of Heth for coal, [but] if practicable, shall prefer getting my coal here from him, rather than from Richmond.—the arbitrators between mr...
I have been able at length to find time to look into the [account between] mr Ross & myself and am perfectly satisfied with it’s correctness. but [I have] noted some errors (as I deem them) in mr Robertson’s mode of statement, which I have resubmitted to the correction of the arbitrators, & I deem them so [justifiable] as not to doubt their correction. this reduces the sum awarded from [a...
In the month of August, mr Barnes shipped from hence by the Schooner William, James Collett master, of Alexandria three cases, small, containing some composition ornaments . I believe the three cases were put into one outer one. they were marked TI.

I now inclose the remaining halves, arranged exactly in the order of those sent yesterday, so that you may have no trouble in tallying them. the 10. D. bills are sent entire.

Doctor Currie informs me he put into your hands all the papers in David Ross’s case which had been confided to him. I will pray you to send them on to me by [post?].—the money which was lodged with you for Borduron, will not be called for he having been paid through another channel. it will stand therefore to my general credit, and what you recieved for mr Short I shall exchange with mr Barnes...
Your’s of the 10th. is recieved, and I have desired mr Barnes to credit mr Short 130.

Mr. Craven Peyton of Albemarle, to whom I owed a balance of 131.47 D has desired me to remit it to meet a paiment he has to make in Richmond. lest he should be in Richmond or on the road, I have thought it best not to send it to Albemarle, but to lodge it with you to be delivered to himself or his written order: and I give him notice by another letter this day sent to Albemarle that he may...

Yesterday arrived our packages sent up by the boats. I find that during my stay here we shall want another supply of a couple of [hogsh.] more of syrup of punch, which therefore it will be as well to get at [once and] forward when practicible as the boat-navigation is precarious. By yesterday’s post [I learnt] that mr Short arrived on the 28th. at Norfolk, & is to proceed via Baltimore to...

Mr. Derieux has for years past urged such perpetual demands on me for charity, that I have long since gone beyond the proportion which he had a right to expect of what I can give in charity, and consequently has been infringing on what other objects had a better right to.
