1811. Dec. The crop of the Tomahawk plantation for 1812. Corn, oats & peas. the Shop field
The people arrived here on the evening of Saturday the 28 th with every thing well except 1. hog tired & killed on the road. the articles for Dick to carry back will be now soon ready to put on board his waggon, but it is now raining, so that it is not likely he will set off today. the inclosed paper will tell you what they are & what is to be done with them. we are in very great want of the...
I have just recieved a letter from Maj r Flood informing me that his neighbor M r Duval will spare me from 6. to 8. bushels of Burnet seed. you will therefore be pleased to send off two boys on horseback to bring it. they should take bags which will hold 4. bushels each. the seed is as light as chaff. it is sown half a bushel to the acre. Major Flood’s is 34. miles from Poplar Forest on the...
Our distress on the article of hauling obliges me to send for the yoke of steers which were to come from Poplar Forest . you know our situation and will I hope send us a pair which will do solid service. of those which mr Griffin sent while you were here, we have never been able to make any thing. I have given Moses leave to stay a day with his friends. I suppose he can bring on the back of...
Mem m for mr Goodman . as soon as the green swerd seed is ripe, have som e gathered by the negro children and sowed on all the naked parts of the mound, and then cover those parts lightly with s traw first, & brush laid over that. if m ore seed could be gathered by the children it might be sowed in the fall or spring in the square round the house where the green swerd has not as yet taken....
Jame Hubbard delivered your letter of the 30 th some days ago and proposes to set out on his return tomorrow. I am happy to hear your crops are likely. the wheat when threshed must remain in it’s chaff in the barn until we can dispose of it. with this view I should be glad if you before I go up you would get from the different millers the terms on which they will grind it for me, for I have no...
A fall which I got from my horse a fortnight ago by the breaking of a girth, & by which I have recieved considerable hurt inwardly, will prevent my being with you by the middle of the month as I had intended. the external swelling is subsiding, but very slowly, so as to render the time when I may venture to travel uncertain. in the mean time Chisolm will proceed to do the plaistering of the...
I wrote to you on the 10 th by post, requesting that you would make the necessary preparation for mr Chisolm’s beginning to plaister by sending for a waggon load of lime, and having sand brought by the waggon returning from Lynchbg , or sending for it express. I presume the waggon load of plank has been brought from Rosser’s and that mr Perry has made a beginning of putting up the grounds for...
all the plank necessary for finishing mr Perry’s work must be got & kilndried with as little delay as possible and notice given him to come & finish. The flour must now be recieved from the mill as fast as it can be got down, only waiting till the river has such a tide as will bring down the price of carrying down to what it is likely to stand at. No time should be lost in getting ready the...
Dick & the others arrived here the day before yesterday (Wednesday) he lost one of his hogs opposite Lynchburg , and a mutton died the night before he got here. every thing else came well. whenever the carriage of flour falls to a dollar a barrel you had better get all mine off, giving orders on mr Gibson for paiment of the freight. indeed whenever the expectation of the price of carriage...
