Your favor of the 10th. was put into my hands by Thomas Walker about 3. or 4. hours ago, and I immediately take measures to obtain the 600. Dollars desired, in such a form as he could most safely carry & might answer your purpose. I have accordingly been able to obtain 500. dollars in 10. bills of the United states branch bank of Norfolk & 100. Dollars gold. the former will be inclosed herein;...
I recieved the day before yesterday your favor of the 3d. inst. the post leaving this always the day before the return of the post of the preceding week prevents our neighborhood from recieving an answer from hence till the Thursday sennight after they have sent off their letter. I do not perfectly understand your statement of the additions on account of a greater quantity of forest land than...
Your favor of the 16th. was recieved on the 20th. the post having departed the day before as usual. you ask what shall be done with Shadwell? there was a wish in mr Tom Esting Randolph to have rented it. mr T M Randolph can tell whether he now wishes it. if not, let it to some one tenant, if you please, subject to my approbation which can be asked in a fortnight always. I say to some one...
In my letter of Oct. 8 covering a Columbia bank note for 1240 D. 27 c I recommended to you to dispose of it without delay. I had more reasons for this than would have been proper then to mention. that bank is now in a crisis which may end mortally. if that note is still in your hands or any where else so as not to have cleared us of all responsibility for it, if it be sent to me by return of...

Henderson & Elizabeth his Wife on the one part and Craven Peyton on the other part all of the County of albemarle Witnesseth that the said James L. Henderson and Elizabeth his Wife in consideration of the Sum of Five Hundred Dollars to them in hand actually paid have given granted bargained and sold unto the said Craven all...
Your favor of Nov. 6. was recieved in due time. a press of business has prevented my answering sooner. I am willing to recieve William Davenport as the assignee of your lease of Shadwell. on considering the parts of the lands of the Hendersons which fall to me, I observe that it would be desireable for me to have all their shares in the three parcels on the river, but most especially in the...
Your favor of the 2d. instant was recieved by last post, desiring a remittance of the balance of 131. D 47 c due you on our settlement of May 22. I accordingly now inclose you 140. Doll. in bank bills of the United states, as these cannot be got exactly to the fraction desired. I hope it will be recieved in time for your purpose. sundry approaching calls for money render it absolutely...
Lest you might be gone to Richmond, as mentioned in your letter of the 2d. instant , I have thought it best to send the balance you desired, to mr George Jefferson of that place; and have accordingly inclosed 140. D. this day in a letter addressed to you, sealed, and have desired him to deliver it to yourself or to your written order; so that you can apply to him on your reciept of this. in...
The certificate for 1000. acres of land in the name of John Peyton which you inclosed me shall be forwarded to the war office by this day’s post. without some authentic designation however of the person to whom the patent is to be granted it will of course come out in the name of John Peyton. I mention this, that if you wish it otherwise, you may furnish me with the supplementary papers...
Being unacquainted with the rules of proceeding in the land office of the U.S. I am unable to say whether they will admit a patent to be made out for yourself, rather than the heir at law. I suspect it must be for the latter; leaving you to make good your claim in opposition to him in a court of law, but this is conjecture only. Perhaps if not inconvenient for you to come by, you might in...
Know all men by these presents that I Elizabeth Henderson of the state of Kentucky have this day bargained and sold to Craven Peyton of the state of Virginia, all my right, title and interest in all the property in the county of Albemarle in said state of Virginia which I possessed as Dower after the death of my husband Bennett Henderson in said county of Albemarle, except the mill, warehouse,...

I recieved by last post your favor of Oct. 27. informing me of the purchase of the lands of Bennet Hill Henderson, Eliza Henderson, Frances Henderson, Lucy Henderson & Nancy Henderson for 650. £ and the widow’s dower for £250. certainly I am very glad to get them secured, but the paiment of £650. by the 10th. instant is utterly out of my power. from this time to February I have to pay for...
Your favor of the 13th. came to hand last night: and I am happy that the postponements of paiment will be not inconvenient: and the more so as the dates I proposed were suggested by so strong a desire to fix them as early as possible, that tho’ I still trust I can comply with them, yet unforeseen emergencies might throw them forward a month. I now inclose you the deeds, bonds and reciepts...
In my letter of Nov. 2. I expressed a hope I might be able to pay you 1000. D. the 1st. week of this month, 1000. D. in March, & the balance in the summer. in my letter of the 20th. of Nov. I still thought it might be but suggested a possibility that the paiments might be a month later. it is with sincere concern I am obliged, by a rigorous view of my affairs, to say, not only that I cannot...
Before I ventured to write you my letter of the 8th. inst. I entered into arrangements with my banker in Georgetown to be sure that I could punctually comply with what was therein undertaken. immediately on the reciept of yours to-day I went to him again to see if he could throw the two paiments of 500. D. each promised for March & April into one of 1000. D. for March. on examining the state...
This Indenture, made this Thirtieth day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and three: Between John Henderson and Ann B. Henderson his wife, of the County of Albemarle of the one part, and Craven Peyton of the said County of the other part, Witnesseth, that the said John Henderson, and Ann B. his wife, for and in consideration of the sum of One Hundred and forty pounds...
Your favor of Apr. 29. came to hand last night. having left at Monticello the plat of the partition of Henderson’s land, I do not from memory recollect the position of John & Charles Henderson’s 4. acres very accurately; but think I recollect enough to say it is impossible for him to build a mill on them, and bring water to it without drawing his canal through lands not his, and which no court...
Your favor of the 10th . is at hand particular circumstances relative to mr Randolph’s mill seat had obliged me to communicate to him confidentially the interest I had acquired in the opposite one. I have therefore referred to him to consider with respect to his own as well as my interests whether it will be necessary to take down Henderson’s dam before I come home, and if he thinks proper to...
Your servant finds me just mounting my horse on a call to mr Lilly’s. I have only time therefore to say I must leave the renting &c to yourself entirely, only guarding against repetitions of corn planting so as to injure the fields. I am sorry I have not 10. D. by me. I depend on exchanges with the sheriffs, who collect little. Accept my best wishes. RC ( MA ). Not recorded in SJL .
I now send you the deed, and a copy of the Virginia law made by D. Carr, which will serve to instruct your agent in Kentucky what is to be done. I think it should be made the interest of Fontrees to stay in Kentucky till a court sets, before which mrs Henderson may appear & acknolege the deed, or the witnesses be summoned & prove it. the deed being proven, he should bring it back to have it...
I cannot consider the mill as worth either to the proprietors or myself more than the [price] of stone & the because they can never again make and I consider should not. her position, construction & condition makes her unworthy of being set to work for the dam is taken down, which will be from this time. it will till her condition is seen to be. by the [. . .]. that they will muster [more...
According to the settlement of interest made by you, and mentioned in your last letter to be sixty four pounds, I now inclose you an order on Gibson & Jefferson for that sum, to wit two hundred & thirteen & a third dollars, which closes the paiments principal & interest for all the lands & interests of the Henderson family hitherto bought. it is payable in 30. days which is as early as I could...
If my note for 558.14 D paiable the 15th. of Dec. is still in your own hands, I should be very glad if it could be either postponed awhile or paid by monthly portions, as I find I shall be very hard pushed , during the next month. if however it is gone out of your hands I shall endeavor to make provision for it if possible. accept my friendly salutations and best wishes. RC ( ViU ); addressed:...
I recieved last night from mr Higginbotham a draught of yours on me for forty seven pounds payable in April. I shall delay writing to him till the next post by which I may hear from you. I considered our settlement of Aug. 11 and the balance of 558.14 D paiable Dec. 15. and actually paid as soon as the note was presented, as in full of the principal money due on all the purchases, and that the...
Soon after my letter of the 16th. had gone off, your contract for corn occurred to me, which I had not recollected before. I saw at once that your draught must have been founded on that; and before the reciept of your letter of the 23d. which is only this moment come to hand, I returned the draught with an acceptance to mr Higginbotham & with explanations of the cause of delay, and assurances...
Your favor of the 14th. must have lost a post or two somewhere, this being the first which admits an answer. with respect to the old mill it is as impossible that she should ever go again as that water should run uphill. therefore let it belong to whom it will it can never be any thing more than an insulated spot of ground surrounded by mine. the only reason for offering to purchase the old...
Your letter of Jan. 3. was recieved in due time, and should have been sooner answered but that I wished some information from mr Randolph on the subject, who has but lately returned to this place. I do not want the inclination to purchase the shares of the warehouse, on the contrary it is desirable to me to consolidate that acquisition in all it’s parts: but it is scarcely in my power to make...
On the 27th. of April I recieved from Mr. Jefferson for acceptance your note for 201. D. paiable about the last of July, which I sent back accepted and shall pay at maturity. I did not write you on it because I thought he would do so. since that your favors of Apr. 25. & June 9. have been recieved. the former proposed that I should pay £200. in 60. days (say July 1.) and £60. in 90 days (Aug....
Immediately on the reciept of your letter recieved on the 25th. I informed mr Jefferson that I would pay him for you 156.67D on the 13th. of July and 533.33D on the 10th. of August. on a rigorous attention to dates I found I was obliged to take three days more of July than you had desired. I now inclose you Bullock’s deed, & that for the parts of the warehouse owned by the three girls,...
I have recieved a letter from mr Hay asking whether he shall enter an appeal? and informing me he has written to you on the subject, it would be necessary for me to know whatever has passed relative to this, & as it is important & pressing in time, I am obliged to ask a consultation with you. Accept my friendly salutations ViU .
I have consulted with mr Barber, and the conclusion is that other remedies are very dubious, but that mr Dawson may issue a supersedeas of his former judgment & call for a new jury. this he ought to do, & doubtless would do if he were satisfied there was error, or want of full evidence at the former trial. if any of the jurors would certify that they are now dissatisfied with the inquest they...
I am sorry it is not in my power to send you the 20. D. you desire. I recieved a considerable sum by post yesterday, but paid away the whole of it in the course of the day & this morning, reserving only as much as would carry me to Bedford. my reciepts being monthly it will not be till this time next month again that I shall be in cash. In having the mill house valued it will be important that...
On reciept of your letter from Lancaster, I wrote to mr Hay to engage mr Wirt as assistant counsel in your case in chancery. I inclose you his answer. wishing to avoid appearing in this case I must get the favor of you to write to mr Wirt & to do what is needful in the case. Accept my friendly salutations & best wishes. ViU .
I was so much engaged in preparing for a post that I could not answer by your servant the letter he brought, requesting me to settle the accounts between Colo. Lewis & yourself. I might state as a good reason for declining it, that I am by no means sufficiently versed in matters of account to undertake that office with the necessary consciousness that I could properly discharge it. but...
Your favor of the 16th. was recieved by the last post. it is quite out of my power to be a purchaser of land. nobody is more puzzled to make both ends meet, and I fear at the close of my office I shall find I have not done so. it will be as convenient for me that mr Bacon should recieve corn from you as money: but you must be so good as to inform him yourself what he is to recieve from you &...
The fifty dollars which I was to remit to mr Maddox went from here on the 12th. and were recieved by mr Bacon on the 15th. inst. which was two days before your letter was written. but I am to remit 50. D. more to him early next month, & should he not have put the former remittance into your hands, if you will get an order for the next & let me have it by return of post, I will make the...
Your favor of Jan. 21. came too late to be answered by the same post. I approve of the purchase of the property of the three youngest children of mr Henderson: but it is really not in my power to give such a sum as you mention for James Lewis’s property even were it worth it. that is to say I could not spare such a sum of money from more pressing calls. if I recollect rightly he has nothing...
On the reciept of your letter I wrote to mr Bacon to send me the account which I had left with him to convince you of the errors of addition in it. it is now before me. your addition makes the debits £53-10-1 the Credits  42-10-6 Balance 11-1-7 the true addition makes the debits £51-8-7 Credits 42.17-6 Balance 8-11-1 = 28.5
I recieved last night your letter of the 19th. and altho’ I do really consider the sum of 375. D. as double the worth of the property as stated in my letter of Sep. 8. yet for the sake of peace & to consolidate the whole title I should be willing to give that sum for it. but it is totally out of my power to do it on the short notice you give. you know I settle all my pecuniary affairs in the...
I recieved yesterday your favor of Dec. 1. and I think you must have misinterpreted the expressions of my letter of Nov. 28. as on a revisal of that I find nothing which could convey an idea of dissatisfaction with yourself. I am sure nothing of that kind was intended because it was not felt. I barely referred to the opinion given in mine of Sep. 8. that 375. D. was double the worth of the...
I have been obliged to change a little the arrangement I had made with you as to the paiment of the 375. D. by inclosing you an order on Gibson & Jefferson for 100. D. in Richmond, as I was not able to remit to mr Benade from this place more than 275. D. this I did yesterday in an order of the bank of the US. at this place on that at Philadelphia to that amount; and I informed him that you had...
I recieved yesterday your favor of the 18th. if you can sell the lands of Henderson South of the road, I shall be very much relieved indeed by it. as to price, if I can get as much by the acre for what I sell as I gave by the acre for the whole, I shall have made a good bargain, inasmuch as I shall get the most valuable part at the average price of the whole. but any price from that down to 4....
