I ought to have attended to yours of the 23th. Ult: sooner but the 4th of March came in the way and to be plain with you it was impossible to think of any thing else till that business was finished—Since I wrote you last I have often seen Jackson and Wharton and have again and again offered them for the whole of your Crop of Tobacco Seven Dollars pr Ct . and they have rejected the offer—This...
I have been about writing you for some months back but I was of the opinion Tobacco would be lower in this I have been mistaken—I want to be informed if your last years Crop is on hand and what will be the price and day of payment— I have a letter from Richmond dated the 11th. that Quotes Prime Tobacco at 36/ to 37/6. inferior at 33/ V Currency—If your crop is unsold and at Richmond I will...
I suppose by this time your information respecting the quality of your Tobacco is correct—If it is of the first quality and for sale please to inform me of the quantity and Cash price delivered at Richmond— or if agreeable to you which will certainly be more agreeable to me your Credit price from one to six months for I am and have been these eighteen months very much a head of my money owing...

The Yellow Fever which is a sore evil in every sense of the word and your making up your mind not to sell your Tobacco for less than six Dollars pr Cent and I making up my mind not to give it especially as you inform me it is not of the first quality is the sole cause whey you have not had an answer from me sooner to your of the 6th. Ultimo—My last letter from Richmond is dated the 10th. the...
The Plan with the opposition is to divid and I am affraid they have in some measure effected their purpose but how can it be otherwise when our Principle men are at Daggers Drawn Logan & Lieb who certainly at this time should unite are saying very hard things of each other and supposing what they say on both sides is true it answers no other purpose but to destroy the usefulness of both and...
I wrote you on the 17th . to which I refer—The business of the Rising Sun is over and settled very much to my satisfaction but I impute it very much to Mr. Dallas and Captain Jones being there—The Citizens on both sides were very full of Fire—Colonel Ferguson had a sett of Resolutions had they been proposed would have divided the Whigs in the County—it is very True C Ferguson said he did not...
Their is a report here and from the quarter I received it I believe to be true that Major Jackson is to be removed & that you would put Doctr. Bache in his place if it would give general satisfaction to the Republicans—Before I heard your opinion I was asked for mine and whilst I was a think the Gentleman mentioned several names which I most confess I did not perfectly like—He then mentioned...
It is with infinite pain I am obliged to give you the History of this district and how it will wind up next October’s Election will show—The first thing that appeared like a division amoungst republicans (perhaps I am mistaken in the name for altho’ they call themselves republicans their subsequent conduct convinces me they have no Title to it) was a Meeting at the Harp and Eagle how many were...
I have just seen a letter where in was mentioned that Callender Irwin would not be appointed to the office held by his father but Colonel Samuel Miles would—I think you had better pause before you put the seal to this commission for the following reasons—Colonel Miles is too old he was an officer in the war of 55 & 62 and more over Colonel Ferguson who saw him some time ago (as for my part I...
