Entries taken from Day Book kept by J Kuhn 1816 April 4 Tho s Jefferson To 4   barrels of Flour, sent to the Mountain by Isaac 12 th  ditto
If it should not be convenient to you to meet me at the Mill tomorrow at 10 O’Clock, I will do myself the pleasure to call on you about 11 O’Clock—in the mean time I will examine the Mill books and see what offal is due to the customers—and if it is possible to furnish you with the quantity you want I will inform you—I am sorry there should have been any misunderstanding on the subject of...
I am much obliged to you for your kind attention in sending M r Crowninshield s letter — Mann received his warrant by the last Mail—and immediately wrote to the Sect y of the Navy soliciting to be order’d into active service—of which there appears no prospect. From the date of his acceptance his pay (half pay) commences, and could he be order’d on duty as a supernumery, he would be willing to...
As I am prevented from riding, by indisposition, I beg leave to enclose the agreement between yourself and T. M. and T. E. Randolph respecting the lease of Shadwell Mill —and will thank you to state therein, that the Rent for the ensuing year is payable in flour— This is only necessary in consequence of my having made arrangements with a very good Miller to give him an interest in the business...
Inclosed you will receive a statement of all the Flour deliver’d to you, by comparing it with the accounts furnish’d you, we believe you will find it correct— The mistake made with respect to 67 barrels sent down in May last, and which are still in Mess rs Warwicks Lumber house, shall be arranged to your satisfaction so soon as either of us go to Richmond which will be in few days—We are with...
I shall always acknowledge with grateful sensibility my obligations to you for your very friendly application to the secretary of the navy in favor of my son Mann — Mann waited on him in Washington , was very kindly received by him, and assured of obtaining a warrant so soon as there is a vacancy—The profession he has chosen, I confess, is not perfectly agreable to me, but he has a right to...
The last Mail brought me a letter from my Son Mann , which has given me considerable uneasiness—he informs me, that he has ever had an aversion to Mercantile pursuits, and although he has endeavour’d to conquer it, he finds it impossible, and that his mind is possitively bent on entering the Navy— The object of this address, is to ask the favor of you to give him a letter to the President to...
I expect to go to Richmond tomorrow, and as soon as I see M r Randolph , I will communicate to him the contents of your letter of yesterday — The proposition to pay the Rent of Shadwell Mill in Flour, in lieu of money, will be very agreable to me, and probably will be equally so to M r Randolph ,—under any possible arrangement we must sustain a considerable loss this year—at the present money...
I have taken advantage of M rs Randolph ’s absence to employ the house servant at my buildings—who has had the care of the rabbits—and I observe they have suffer’d by a change of keepers— I therefore send you a pair which have been long reserv’d for you—and hope you may succeed with them better than I have done—They may be fed with Cabbage leaves—clover—indeed almost any kind of green...
I had depended on getting a Gig in Milton (which I have been in the habit of hiring) to take my Son to School. it is at present out—and very uncertain when it will return—If you can without any inconvenience accomodate me with the loan of yours—you will very much oblige me—I propose to set off on Tuesday and expect to return in a week— RC ( MHi ); dateline below signature; addressed: “Thomas...
