On considering the plan of your house, I find it will make considerable odds to me that in the room over the kitchen, the door be placed in a corner of the room; I presume it must be in the left hand corner as you enter, or the Northeast corner of the room. Perhaps it may be better to leave this door in it’s present state, whatever that be, and also the cornice &c. in that end of the room (the...
I shipped to a person in London, some time before the war, 4 hhds. of my Albemarle tobacco. No account of sales was ever rendered, and being now in settlement with the representative of that person, we are obliged to find out the worth of that tobacco as we can. Mr. Charles Carrol (who lodges at Mrs. House’s) is to settle the price with me. As I can only procure circuitous evidence, I shall...
Capt. Stratton arrived last night with the 4. hhds. of tobo. for which I gave you the bill of lading some time ago. He will call on you to-day. I should like that it were examined, because I believe, from the marks, that it is of the Bedford tobo.—I mentioned to you sometime ago that I believed I should have occasion for about 400. Dollars of this money, to be obtained by discount at the bank....
The day I left Philadelphia, I went for the first time up into the book-room which Mr. Carstairs is building, and then for the first time also observed he had left no place for the chimney. On asking an explanation I found that some how or other he had taken a notion from the beginning that there was to be none. I am sure he had it not from me. It is possible that I may not have particularly...
I must ask of you a note for 200 dollars in such form as may be negociated at the bank. The marks and weights of the 4. hhds. of tobo. which you wished to know are as follows. nett TI. No. 1. 1223℔ }
I have determined to agree to give you 250£. for your house and tenement in my possession as proposed in your letter of the 16th. on condition that you lease it to me for seven years with a right in me to relinquish it at any time after the expiration of the first year on giving you three months previous notice: the new lease to begin as to the bookroom and stable when they are delivered to...
On bringing together my accounts before my departure I find I have occasion for about 50. or 100. dollars more, and should therefore be glad of a note from you to be discounted at the bank for so much. I expect about half a dozen hhds. of tobo. more by captain Stratton during my absence, which please to receive and pay the expences of.—I am Sir Your very humble servt., PrC ( ViU ).
I was in hopes Capt Stratton would have brought the 6. hhds. of my tobo. which still remain at Richmond. But he is come without them. I had waited supposing that on his arrival I might have settled the whole purchase with you. I shall immediately order them by the first vessel without waiting for Stratton. For the present however I must ask the favor of you to furnish me with a thousand...
I received some days ago from Mr. Hylton, the gentleman who forwarded my tobacco to me, the statement below. By this it appears that there were two hhds. of which I had not notice. I presume they came during my absence, and were the two for which there was no bill of lading, and are to be added to the 39. of which I gave you a statement before. The two which he mentions last are now arrived...
My tobacco arrived here yesterday by the Linnet Capt. Weymouth, whom I will direct to deliver it to you. There are 30. hhds, supposed to weigh about 40,000 ℔. but the weights not having been forwarded, it may perhaps be necessary for you to weigh it here. Instead of sending the money on to Richmond, the Gentleman for whom it was destined writes me word he will be here between the 8th. and...
Not doubting but that the judgment formed by Mr. Strawbridge and yourself of the value of my tobacco is just, I agree to take the price you propose of four dollars and a half the hundred. I am Sir Your very humble servt., PrC ( MHi ).
I recieved by yesterday’s post a letter from the gentleman who was to have come on himself and embarked from hence or New York for England. He writes me that his business not permitting him to come this way he is to embark from Richmond on the 15th. or 16th. As the whole object of my operations with my tobacco has been to pay him the sum of money I am pledged to pay him before his departure, I...
Proposing to leave this for Virginia on Thursday or Friday at farthest I have this morning been settling all my money affairs, and find I cannot square them unless it would be convenient for you, instead of recieving the rent now due in cash, to let me take on myself so much of our joint note for 684. Dollars due at the bank about this day month. With this facility for my rent, I can pay off...
I have made a statement of our account for the last tobacco as herein inclosed, which corresponds with yours, except a small variance in the weight as certified in the paper you gave me, and as entered in your account.—By this you will perceive that of the 1528 Doll. the amount of the notes given in to the bank 424.44 must be provided for by me, and 1103.55 by yourself, that is to say two new...
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to Mr. Lieper and, according to the conditions of his lease , informs him he shall relinquish it at the end of three months from this date. He thinks it probable he can find a good tenant for Mr. Lieper, and shall do it with pleasure. Nothwithstanding what was done by the plaisterer the passage leaked excessively with the last rain.—Th:J. will be obliged...
I have received your favor of yesterday and cannot but think you will retire from the proposition of my finishing the house in the garden when you recollect what has past between us, and recur to the lease wherein all our stipulations were ultimately settled.—Our first agreement was £150. for the house and you to make such additions as should be agreed on, adding 6. per Cent on their cost to...
According to an arrangement with Mr. Wilson , who was to succeed me in your house, I have continued in it till now. We have at length got every thing out of it except an article which will be taken away to-day or tomorrow. The coachman’s wife also who happened to lay in on Sunday last, has Mr. Wilson ’s permission to remain till she can safely remove. I have had every repair made which...
