When I wrote to Mr. Randolph yesterday I did not think I should have time to write to you, and therefore put into his letter some articles for you to which I must refer you. The present is merely to cover a letter of John Jefferson’s which will explain to you his request to be still assisted in the recovery of his rights. I will thank you to have him furnished with what may be necessary to...
I omitted to mention in my memorandum about the sale that if any ready money should be recieved, about £70. of it should be paid to Dr. Currie, and the residue, as far as £300. to Dobson. It is not probable so much will be received, if any, therefore it would be useless to say that any further sum should be paid to Hanson. Mr. Tom Cobbs applied to me to-day about 2. hhds. of tobo. carried down...
I wrote you last on the 11th. of May 1785. by Monsieur de Doradour. We have never heard a tittle of him, which has placed his family in the greatest inquietudes. I infer his safe arrival in Virginia from information sent me by Mr. Madison of the receipt of a book which I had sent by him. I communicated this circumstance to Madame de Doradour, but if you can give me a particular account of his...
I have been so closely engaged ever since the meeting of Congress as never to have had a moment to write to you. I think it might be well to advertize my lands at Elkhill for sale, and therefore inclose you the form of an advertisement, in which you will observe I have omitted the name of the proprietor, which as long as I am in public I would wish to keep out of view in every thing of a...
I omitted in my Memorandums to mention 2. boxes of books marked T.I. No. 1. and No. 2. which are packed, and a box containing a Spinet which the carpenters have to put a top to, which when done I have taken the liberty to direct shall be carried to your house, and perhaps when there you had better order the same person to go on with [them] to Charlottesville, from whence they may be better...
It has become considerably important, in the dispute between mr Ross & myself, to ascertain when the bonds taken at the Elkhill sale were payable. the sale was Feb. 1. 1785. Norris’s & Selden’s bonds were assigned to him, and as they are to be turned into tobacco at the time they were payable, & tobacco varied in it’s price remarkably that year, the time of paiment is very interesting. your...
I now return you the bonds of Woodson & Lewis and Lewis & Ware, as also Woodson’s note, and a statement of Lewis’s debt for the rent of Elkhill. Calculating the interest on each of them to the last day of this month, they stand thus. Principal Interest Whole amount Woodson & Lewis on their bond £172–17–7 + £22–17–0 = £215–14– 7 Woodson. On his note    6– 7–0 +   1– 7–3 =    7–14– 3 (Lewis &...
I wrote you last on the 13th. of June. The Senate have passed the bill for fixing the residence of Congress at Philadelphia for ten years, and then permanently at Georgetown. It has been read once or twice in the H. of representatives and will be ultimately decided on the day after tomorrow. I believe it will pass there by a considerable majority. I imagine we shall remove from hence early in...
[ Paris, 11 May-3 June 1785 . Entry in SJL reads: “N. Lewis. Recommending Doradour. My appointment. Not keep long. Have porticos covered with shed roof. Take care of stuff sawed. Key to send me annually his cash account-send two cones of Cedar of Lebanon. Anthony to plant them in a nursery. Anthony to write me a full state of his proceedings since I left home. Send some trifles to Mrs. L....
I should sooner have acknoleged the receipt of Mrs. Lewis’s kind letter of Apr. 14 . but for a periodical headach which attacked me the 1st. of May, and has not yet quitted me entirely; tho since the first week it has been very moderate, and now is almost nothing. I sincerely rejoice to hear of your recovery, which judge Wilson assures me of. I inclose a few grains of high-land rice which I...
