I propose in two or three days to make a short excursion home to make some arrangements previously neecessary to my final settlement here. I cannot go till I have thanked you for the trouble you took in the late case of my tobo. which as to the complaints I suppose had it’s origin in feelings no way derived from the quality of the tobo. my crop of the last year, about [40,000] is lying at...
Your favor of Nov. is recieved. my crop of tobacco of the last year’s growth was sold in April. that lately severed will be small; the crop of tobacco this year being generally short. mine will not be half a one. I fear too the quality will be indifferent; at least that was the expectation when I was at home in September. in that case I always sell in Richmond where they are less anxious about...
Your favors of June 3. were duly recieved. I made the last year but little tobacco, and my overseer informed me it was not good. it was deemed generally an unfavorable year both for the quality and quantity of tobacco made. in consideration of the quality I have lodged mine at Richmond with a view of selling it there; and had authorised my correspondent to take 6. D. @ 90. days for it. I have...
Your letter of the 23d. should have been sooner answered had it been in my power. but it is of the less importance, as using that frankness which I know you will approve. I do not feel myself free to answer the question you propose. it was taken up by the Senate at the last session: it may be again at this session, and may come to me from one or both houses on an official form. I ought...
This is merely a private letter, intended for yourself individually. if I have not answered the very friendly and flattering address I recieved through you, and the many others I have recieved, it is not from an insensibility to their kind and gratifying contents. no man feels them more powerfully than I do; no breast ever felt more consolation from such testimonies of good will. and the...
I pray you to consider this letter so confidential as not to be hinted even, to your most intimate friends. you propose General Steele as the successor to the present collector. the following circumstances are to be considered. it is indispensable that the head of the Indian department reside at the seat of government. Genl. Shee was apprised of this at the time of his appointment. it was soon...
I recieved your favor of Apr. 22. a little before I was to leave Washington, much engaged with dispatching the business rendered necessary by the acts of Congress just risen, & preparatory to a short visit to this place. here again I have been engrossed with some attentions to my own affairs after a long absence, added to the public business which presses on me here as at Washington. I mention...
Your letter of the 15th. was duly recieved, and before that Tower’s book, which you had been so kind as to send me, had come to hand, for which I pray you to recieve my thanks. you judge rightly that here , I have no time to read. a cursory view of the book shews me that the author is a man of much learning in his line. I have heard of some other late writer (the name I forget) who has...
