I have continued to receive so many marks of your attention, in sending me gazettes that I must beg you to accept my thanks, given in the lump; tho with not the less sincerity. Having lately furnished a supply of Black Walnut stuff for Musket Stocks, I find that there remain fragments sufficient for several thousand Stocks of different sizes, suitable for fowling pieces—Ship pistols & Horse...
I duly recd. your favor of on the subject of the Walnut Musket Stocks; the price of which is much short of what I had supposed. I thank you for the information, and for your promise to communicate any change in the demand. Our Crop of Tobo. has turned out better than was expected. It has been better in this quarter than in most of the districts where it is principally cultivated. On the whole...
I send you by the present Conveyance 8 Hhds of Tobo. as noted in the Margin. The greater part is I believe of prime quality notwithstanding the season which was remarkably unfavorable. The rest, tho’ inferior is better probably than the generality of the shipments this year. The whole is reported by the Inspectors, as put up in the best order & neatest manner. Out of the proceeds Be pleased to...
Your favor enclosing Act. Sales & invoice came safe to hand. The articles sent are liable to no objection except that some of them are rather of a superior sort & of course, price, than was in view. I have arranged with Mr. Mackay, the balance due from me so as [to] stand debited in his books for it. The sales of the Tobo. did not fully meet expectation. That of the best quality it was thought...
I have successively rcd. all the letters, I believe, with wch. I have been favd. by your Firm. My last crop of Tobo. was not a very good [one]. The Grasshoppers compleatly destroyed the first planting, and in a very great degree the second also: so that the Tobo. was small, and was necessarily cut, from the approach of Frost before it got to be fully ripe. Another consequence was, as usually...
I have lately recd. yours of July 20. That of June 24. enclosing the Act of Parlt. relating to the W. Inda. trade, was also duly recd. I am glad to find that the Brit: Govt. has at length made that change in its Colonial policy. It augurs well for greater harmony in the intercourse between the two Nations. The U.S. will I believe be always ready to meet G.B. as well as other nations in a...
The inclosed letter is from a man who takes care of my garden to his brother in Scotland from whom I lately recd. a letter saying that the brother here had not been heard of for several years, and requesting that the distress of the family might be relieved by a few lines from me wth. whom it was known he had been living. As a no. of letters have been sent, & of course miscarried, the writer...
Your favor of Jany 29-30. with the interesting Gazettes then & afterwards kindly sent, have been duly recd. Your friend Mr Hagarty has not yet afforded me an opportunity for the welcome I shall feel a pleasure in giving him, over my threshold. Your advice to the Tobacco Planters is very good but it will not be followed for 3 reasons: 1. because good advice it apt to be disregarded. 2. because...
I have recd. yours of March 31st. and hasten to give the information you request. Mr. John Walker the lawyer to whom you allude, is still living in the adjoining County at a very advanced Age. He has long been well known to me as he was to my father, and has always been regarded as of the strictest probity, and in every respect a most worthy character. He is not affluent, but in very...
On the rect. of your letter inclosing a letter to Mr. Walker, I put the latter into the hands of one of my neighbors who married his daughter. It appears that the old Gentleman died a few days after your letter reached him; but that he recollected the debt, referred to, and expressed a confidence that he had never recd. a payment of it. His long inattention to the subject, is explained by a...
If I had less confidence in your goodness, I should want resolution to approach you with an apology for my long silence, since your last favor was added to the balance against me. Throughout the period my health, with short intervals, has been much affected, and the intervals happened to be occupied with drudgeries of the pen, which I could not well shun. [Your intelligent and interesting son...
The mail has just brought us information, in one instance under your own hand & name, that you have safely reached the land of your birth. I welcome you to it; and hope at an early day to welcome you at my own domicil, where I shall be able to express all the feelings awakened by your unexpected and gratifying visit. Meantime accept from Mrs. M. & myself all our best wishes. RC ( ViU ); draft...
I have recd. your favor of the 19th. You could not probably have chosen a spot more favorable to a continuance of your vigorous health, on which I congratulate you, than Schooleys mountain; nor one better guarded against the formidable Cholera which it is said has never visited insulated and elevated situations. My own health has much declined since you left us. My rheumatic inmate had been...
I have recd. your favor of the 14. Feby. inst 1834 and congratulate you very sincerely on the good health with which you enter on yr 87th. year, notwithstanding the severity of the winter, and the maladies around you I hope it is a prognostic of years yet to come and with the health making them blessings Tho’ numbering 4 years less than yours, my present condition is far less flattering. My...
I have received your friendly letter of May 7th. and the box of Sherry wine I owe to your kindness came safe to hand the day before yesterday. I thank you for both. Your letter I observe is written by your own hand. I wish I could answer it in like manner; but though your years somewhat outnumber mine, my fingers are de facto older than yours, and are at present, as is my general condition,...
