I have to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 7th. inclosing 75$—The coal you require shall be forwarded by the first opportunity; there are however but few vessels I believe, which go from here to Alexa. and fewer still to Washington. only 14 hhds of your Tobacco are yet down. the price now is from 6 to 7$ according to quality, or the opinion of it . I hope yours may be supposed to...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 5th inclosing 300$: I now inclose you a bill of loading for 1300 bushels of Coal, & for five boxes some short time ago received from Monticello. At the same time that I gave an order for your Coal, I likewise gave one for about the same quantity for Mr. Madison, which I supposed would probably go in the same Vessel.—Will you be so...
I forwarded some days since the remainder of the nail rod , & the hoop-iron, received some time ago. I likewise forwarded by C. Becks’s boat 31 packages lately received from George Town & Alexandria, together with a Hhd of Molasses & the 3 Casks Cyder. I could not conveniently get the Molasses caskd, and therefore sent it without, supposing Becks to be perfectly honest, and very careful. I...
I have lately received, and have to day forwarded to Johnston & Richardson of Norfolk, to be by them sent on to Mr. Barnes by the first opportunity, seven dozen of Mr. Macons hams; being all that he can spare. I am endeavouring to make up the quantity you require, and hope shortly to procure such as may be relied upon. The two boxes & Cask of wine from Philada. arrived some days ago, and were...
I received last night your favor of the 19th. and have to day delivered the letter which it contained to Wm. Brown & Co., and accepted your dft in their favor payable the 14th. of February for $416.

The pipe of wine about which you some time ago made enquiry, together with sundry other articles shipped from Philada. so long ago as about the middle of Decr. in the schooner Caroline, arrived here only a few days past; in consequence of the Vessel having sustained so much injury in a gale of wind as to be obliged to stop at Norfolk to be repaired, together with her having been since detained...
I have duly received your favor of the 16th. and have in compliance therewith given you credit by Mr. Barnes for the 130:$ received of Mosby for Mr. Short. The cyder has not yet arrived from Norfolk; which however, as yet, is of no consequence, as it could not have been forwarded, in consequence of the low water. There have not I believe been a dozen boats down from Milton in 5 or 6. months. I...
I sent you a few days ago by Thomas Kindred the articles contained in the memorandum which I brought down with me—together with 4 dozen chairs which came from Philadelphia.

Having been about to leave Town for two or three weeks and having been desirous previously of disposing of your Tobacco—I was to day induced to offer it at 42/., altho’ I did once hope, I might have done something better with it. even that however I could not obtain—partly I believe in consequence of late advices from England, which are somewhat unfavorable; those from France however I did...

Your Tobacco (14 hhds) I have after much difficulty disposed of to Pickett Pollard & Johnston at 6.¼$—1000$ Cash, & the balance in 10 days.—The highest offer I had except from them was only 36/6.

I am astonished that the shipwreck’d articles have not yet arrived; as the person who took charge of them, promised soon after the date of my last to you on the subject, to forward them as soon as possible to Norfolk, where orders were lodged for them to be sent up by the first opportunity. I suppose you may calculate upon receiving those articles which will not sustain injury by salt water;...
I have since my last received your favors of the 3d. & 8th—Hollo day to whom you allude has been dead for some time. If Henderson were a person in whose correctness I placed confidence, I would without waiting to hear from you again have the mill-stones valued; but knowing him as I do, I apprehend if he were pleased with the valuation he would abide by it, and if not, would say, he had not...
I have to day received of Mr. Creed Taylor $:679.84 in part of Littlebury Mosby’s bond to Mr. Short , of which I have informed Mr. Barnes. Mr. T. expects shortly to receive the balance. Judgment was obtained last Court against Mayo; but he has appealed, with the mere view I suppose of delay. The quarter Cask of wine which you intended for Mr. Randolph was received in my absence, and had been...

I have procured from Smithfield and have forwarded to Norfolk to be sent on to Mr. Barnes as before, six Casks containing six dozen hams; which from the character given them I hope may prove as good, as perhaps even Colo. Macons. The groceries, including a cask of wine from Norfolk, arrived a few days since; and were to day forwarded on to Milton, with 80 Bundles of nail-rod, & 8 of hoop-iron....
I am very sorry that I was so remiss, as to delay looking out for the wood screws until I had an opportunity of sending them; as I ought to have foreseen there was a possibility at least; of my not being able to procure such as you required and so it has turned out—there are none at all in the whole City with round heads except some few of brass, and they are much too large. I found some few...
Mr. Oldham agreeably to your request has purchased the hinges &c. ordered in your favor of the   ; except that he could find only one dozen of the largest.

I have lately received from Lynchburg 100 Bbls of your flour.—35 bbls of it I have sold to John F. Robertson of Manchester at 4. ¼ $ at 60 days.

This sale I made, without knowing the flour was inspected in Lynchburg.—for the balance I could not obtain the same price, without having it reinspected here,...

I yesterday received your much esteemed favor of the 24th, and lost not a moment in ascertaining what could be done to relieve you from your present embarrassed situation.

Until the receipt of your favor of the 2d. I had entirely forgotten the case of St. George wine at Gordon’s.—On his informing me that you were to have one, I requested him to send it to our house, that it might certainly be recollected: and his promising to do so, I suppose caused me to cease to charge my memory with it, and thus it was forgotten altogether.—It shall now be forwarded by the...

I observe in Mr. R’s list that the same number of Corks are mentioned as in yours; and as I expect they are intended for the same purpose, & bottles are not included in his—I hope they find that none will be required. I am...

I duly received your favor of the 19th and have by to nights post written to our correspondent in Petersburg to make a purchase of the tobacco you require agreeably to your direction. for although it has got up there as I understand to 27/. yet I think it will more probably rise still higher than fall.

I received last night your favor of the 3d. and have in reply to inform you that the present price of Petersburg Tobacco is 4$:, to which it has risen within this week or two from 22/.
