Your letter of the 26th ulto has been received. To Mr F. Whiting for presenting, and to you for forwarding the orchard-grass Seeds, I feel myself obliged, and request you to mention it to him accordingly. I approve of your placing a Tenant upon my small tract of Land above Bath, at a moderate Rent, for the purpose of preserving the Timber thereon; and if decisive proof could be had of the...
The return of your brother Howel, affords me a direct & safe opportunity of enquiring whether any, and if any, what money you have of mine in your hands? What are your prospects of collecting the past years Rents, seasonably —and when I may look for the receipt of them? I have been induced, by the experience & advice of my Manager, Mr Anderson—to erect a large Distillery at my Mill; and have...
Your letter of the 31st Ulto came safe to hand; and the Deed therein enclosed, shall be executed in the manner, and in time, to obtain a certificate from the Clerk of this County at the Court next to be held for it, on the 19th instant, & transmitted to you. Enclosed is a letter for Sally Haynie, left open for your perusal before it is forwarded to her; with the contents of which, respecting...
Your letter of the 23d Ulto has been received. Mr Airesss draught on Mr Russell (of Alexandria) has been presented, & accepted, payable in ten days. I am glad to hear of your good luck, with the eloped tenant in Berkeley county. Recovery of the Tenement is of more importance, than the security of the Rents. I am not disposed to lease it for more than Seven years, and if you could let it for a...
It is quite time that you shd determine whether you will take Young Royal Gift to cover at your House the ensuing Season—or not; that he may be advertised accordingly. And for your information it is necessary to add that, he is rather slow in covering; indeed will not cover at all, unless there is a Jenny by, to excite & stimulate him to the Act. He is now in his prime being 7 years old spring...
Your letter of the 7th instant came duly to hand, but being received with many other letters, it was laid by, and entirely forgotten, until I came across it yesterday again. Mr Ariss’s draught on Mr James Russell for £42 pounds shall be presented to him, but if he is indisposed to pay it, or wants time to do it, he has a good pretext for delay, as you have sent it without your Endorsement,...
Enclosed you have Mr Ariss’s draught on James Russell Esqr., returned. It was presented to the latter for acceptance, by Mr Anderson, who received the following answer—to wit—that he had only £19 of Mr Ariss’s money in his hands, and could pay no more. This sum Mr Anderson refused to receive; and thus the matter ended with Mr Russell. Enclosed also you have the Press copy of a letter I wrote...
Your letter of the 10th of Septr came duly to hand, but as there was nothing contained in it that required to be acted upon immediately, I postponed acknowledging the receipt of it at an earlier period. The death of Mr Airess, of which I have been informed—and the direct conveyance, afforded by your brother Howells return, have induced me, to write you at this time. What prospect the death of...
