Recieved from Colo. Nicholas Lewis the books and papers relative to my affairs and his superintendance of them from 1783. to this day and I hereby give him a full acquittal and discharge thereof and of all balances and demands on account of the same. Witness my hand the day and year above written. MS (Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation, on deposit ViU ); entirely in TJ’s hand; endorsed by...
Unremitting business must be my apology, as it is really the true one, for my having been longer without writing to you than my affections dictated. I am never a day without wishing myself with you, and more and more as the fine sun shine comes on, which seems made for all the world but me. Congress will rise about the 21st. They have past the Representation bill at one for 33,000. which gives...
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 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 &...
On my return here from a journey of a month I found a letter of Mr. Hylton’s dated May 29. informing me there were yet but 2 more hhds. of my tobo. arrived at Richmond (after the 17 which he had sent.) Uneasy at this, from the engagement I had entered into here, in my letter of two or three days ago to my daughter, I desired her to have this mentioned to you lest there should be a stoppage of...
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...
A little intermission of public business on the separation of Congress and departure of the President permits me now to turn my attention for a moment to my own affairs. Finding that good tobacco sold tolerably well here, and being assured that the tobacco of the red lands in Albemarle and Bedford were perfectly known here, and commanded always the highest price, I wrote to Mr. Hylton at...
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...
Mr. Randolph and my daughters being to remain at Monticello, are to be furnished with whatever the plantations will furnish, to wit, corn, fodder, wheat, what beeves there may be, shoats, milch cows, fire-wood to be cut by the plantation negroes, and brought in by the mule-cart or ox-cart. Tom or Phill to go to mill for the house as usual. They are to have also the use of the house-servants,...
