By a letter from Cap t Miller of Norfolk of Feb. 16. he informed me he had put on board the steamboat for me ten gross of corks to your address. not having heard of them I am afraid the steamboat has never delivered them. in the mean while the season is so far advanced and advancing that I fear I shall lose my whole year’s stock of ale and cyder by too late bottling—if the corks are arrived I...
We are here, Ellen, Cornelia and myself for two mo nths to come, & living on plantation fare. this may be considerably improved if you can send us by a Lynchburg boat, addressed to mr Archib. Robertson a keg of tongues & wrinds, a small keg of crackers, a small box of raisins, and a good cheese, to which be pleased to add a barrel of shad from my old friend mr Darmsdat, who has supplied me for...
After so many kind services as I have recieved from you, & so many testimonies of kind dispositions, it would seem unreasonable to press further on them. and yet to whom but a friend can we apply in distress? I have a note of 3000.D. in the Farmer’s bank which was endorsed for me by Col o Nicholas. a different endorser is now called for, and I am told it must be a town endorser. mr Gibson...
The messenger who carried my letter of the 18 th to the post office brought me on his return yours of the 9 th you will see by that that I had anticipated your kind offers of service by asking your name to a note which had been indorsed by Col o Nicholas. since that Jefferson observed to me that by making the note payable to him and his endorsing it, it would lighten your responsibility, as it...
I have recieved with much sensibility your kind letter of Sep. 27. the sweetest cordial to the soul is the good will of the good. coming from the heart, as I am sure it does, I will resort to your kindness frankly, during the days which remain to me. these are counted, and not so many as they would have been but for the experiment of the springs to make me better when I was well. they have...
The period for renewal of my note in the Farmer’s bank being now at hand, I inclose one endorsed as before by my grandson, but requiring the favor of your name also as a town endorser according to the regulations of that bank. not knowing at how many days after date they require notes, I have left that blank. our boats which left Milton Oct. 10. are not yet returned, there not being water...
Your’s of the 11 th did not come to hand till last night. to have been a fortnight on the way proves great negligence on the way, which was not at the post office here, as I well know. you say you feel great embarrasment at asking my sollicitations for you at the seat of government. feel none, my dear Sir; there is nothing within my power which I am not ready to do for you, and I should be...
I recieved last night your’s of Nov. 29. you have rightly under stood the expression in my letter of ‘the place under him’ assuredly meaning the principal office in Richmond under the RM. 6. Jefferson’s sollicitations were warmly for yourself. he never had an idea of that or any thing else of the kind for himself. his views are fixed on the earth & his own industry only. I intend this year to...
I inclose the note to the Farmer’s bank for renewal and hope it will reach you in time, altho it had nearly slipped my due attention. for the discounts I must request your application to mr Gibson as my produce will go to him as soon as our river is in a condition to float a boat. the time of shipping my tobacco to my friend Maury as stated in mr Pollard’s letter is too long I fear for me to...
