I propose to send Phill...
On the very day the waggon left us, my daughtor, who was to accompany me to Bedford was taken sick. she is better and thinks that by tomorrow or next day she will be strong enou gh for the road. I do not think so; but still count from day to day on departing either with her or without her as her convalescence may admit. ever & affectionately yours MHi : Coolidge Collection.
My visit to Bedford has been delayed by a serious accident to my mill. the workman on whom I relied, went on a journey, then returned and died, so that I have had to attend to it day by day myself. it will be finished and agoing tomorrow, and we shall set out for the Forest the next morning (Friday) the waggon starts this morning with a Harpsichord and some necessaries & baggage and will...

For. be sent off immediately to Richmond. I had on the road a conversation with a gentleman of knolege on the subject, and he assured me that the Lynchbg purchaser, besides deducting the carriage withholds a dollar in the hundred for...
Nace arrived here Friday evening with his beeves safe, but not as lucky as to his muttons. one got from him at Chilton’s, another gave out at Warren and the other 4. about 10. miles from here. by sending him back immediately with a cart, these were recovered and brought home, and the other two will not probably be lost. Jefferson will be with you about ten days hence and will advise with you...
