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...
Be pleased to deliver to mr Samuel J. Harrison my crop of tobacco of the last year now on hand, as fast as it is inspected. lose no time in getting it ready, and spare no pains in handling it in the best manner, stemming conscientiously what you would have stemmed exactly had it still been kept on hand for sale PoC ( MHi ); dateline at foot of text; on verso of PoC of covering letter. Not...
your letter of Jan. 12. never reached me till the day before yesterday. the ram of Merino blood sent to Poplar Forest is half blooded from a ewe of my Spanish breed. a full blooded ram lamb is never sold for less than 50.D. the half blooded generally at 20.D. but as I my object is not to gain, but to benefit our citizens by enabling them to get into the breed, I have never taken more than...
I avail myself of the few minutes mr Burwell stops here, to drop you a line by him. on reciept of your information that the flour would all go down the ensuing week, I wrote to mr Gibson the moment any tolerable price could be got, to sell as much as would enable him to remit you 250.D. which I expect he has done by this time. this will enable you to pay the debts of which you gave me a...
The unexpected difficulty of getting water to my saw mill and threshing machine has made it impossible for me to leave those works a day; and the harvest is now so near as not to leave me time for a visit to Poplar forest . I must therefore put it off till the harvest is over. as soon after that as I shall suppose you may have brushed over your tobacco, I will go; because I imagine you will be...
Hercules arrived here on the 22 d having been discharged from Buckingham jail on the 20 th where he had been confined as a runaway.the folly he has committed certainly justifies further punishment, and he goes in expectation of recieving it, for I have assured him that I leave it to yourself altogether and made him sensible that he deserves & ought to recieve it. I believe however it is his...
M r Goodman’s crop for the next year 1814. will be as follows. Corn in M c Daniel’s field; but as this turns out to be but 50. acres, we must add other grounds to it; and there are none but what belong to some other field, except the those over the S. Tomahawk, & above the lower corn field. we must of necessity then give the tobacco ground, & the stubble ground there to corn, and put the upper...
Dick , Solomon and Philip are permitted to go and see their friends, and in returning will help to bring the hogs and beeves. I am in hopes you have procured the beds and given them to the women. in giving out their clothes I forgot the article of hats, which I give every other year; but as it will be more convenient to give about half one year and half another, we will give to the men only,...
Being desirous that Gill ’s waggon should go with Dick ’s, and having a job of hauling of corn from a distance and some other things to finish before Gill could go, I detained Dick to help dispatch it, and tomorrow both waggons will set out. the two beeves came in terrible order; the cow so poor that we are obliged to turn her out, and the steer in worse order than some of ours, so that we...
Your letter of the 27 th Jan. came to hand last night, and this morning I have written to mr Gibson to inclose to you 30.D. by the mail to Lynchburg . he will recieve my letter in on Monday next, the 7 th and by the first mail after
I duly received your letter by Mr. Chisholm . The difficulty of the saw mills in sawing longer stocks than their saw-frame has never been regarded here. We take out the head block which holds the slab end of the stock; let the stock shoot back beyond that as far as it will go, and leave the slab end to be sawed by hand, for a stock of 24 f in a mill of 21 f. there would remain 3 f. of every...
