The President has been informed by his manager at Mount Vernon that the work of his mill is in such a stage as not to admit of any delay in erecting your improvements without stopping the whole progress of the work, which at this time would be a serious inconvenience. The mill-wright who has been employed in repairing the President’s mill has been to view your improvements at the Ochoquan...
The President presuming from your general acquaintance with Mills and Millers, that you will be able to give him the best information of the annual sum for which he can obtain a first rate Miller, that is, one capable of taking charge of a merchant mill, for his mill in Virginia, in addition to the perquisites which he allows to his present miller, and which will be here stated, has directed...
As you have some knowledge of my Mill: and much in the way of being acquainted with Millers, I have taken the liberty of asking, if you could recommend a good one, of honest sober character, to me. My present one stands engaged to the middle of August only, and it is not probable the agreement will continue longer: because, altho’ he is a pretty good Miller, & I have no charge against his...
Finding more difficulty than I apprehended in getting a Miller from Northward, I have again engaged my present one, on the terms he was before, rather than delay the matter any longer. I make this communication to prevent further inquiries on your part, on my behalf; and that I may thank you for the trouble you have taken in this affair to procure one for me. I am etc. Fitzpatrick, Writings of...
Your favor of the 21st. is recieved in which you mention that mr Clymer has concieved a means which would ensure victory over our enemies the Tripolitans, but not to be communicated until it be known whether it would be adopted. ever glad to recieve every information & hint which may be employed to the public good, it would yet be against my duty to do it on the previous condition of engaging...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Evans & his thanks for his letter of the 8th. which has been recieved. the questions presented by the proposition of mr Clymer are Whether the Missile powers of the Fire engine may not be used on board ship to prevent boarding, & With what matter most effectual it may be charged? these will be a subject of consideration for better judges than Th:J....
I am not certain whether I act on correct information in applying to you for the following articles: but I have understood that you are in the way of furnishing the implements for mills to those who have occasion to call for them. I risk the application the rather because I know, if it is not improper, that the articles will be chosen with a skill and good faith in which I have entire...
I thank you for your attention to the little commission I troubled you with. the articles are all safely arrived. mr Barnes, my agent at Washington will, this day sennight remit you three hundred & forty four Dollars 96/100 the amount thereof. my mills will be going in October. the situation is one of the best in the Union, without exception, and I am in want of a tenant for them. perhaps it...
Your favor of the 18th. came to hand two days ago. that the ingenuity of an advocate, seeking for something to defend his client, should have hazarded as an objection that it did not appear on the face of the patent itself that you had complied with the requisitions of the act authorizing a patent for your invention, is not wonderful. but I do not expect that such an objection can seriously...
In the interval between your 1st. & 2d. patents, a mill was built for me in Virginia, the whole construction of which was left to the builder. I did not know whether he had used your machinery or what part of it, and the patent being then out, I presume he thought it unnecessary to note it to me particularly. by a letter from mr John Moody who says he acts for you, I am informed I am indebted...
