Being in Richmond last week Mr P. Lyons jur, who does business for John Hopkins, Esqr. put into my hands for the President U:S. some public paper which had been funded by you some considerable time ago. He has requested of the Prest a rect which was given you at the time, for the Certificates; & the President, supposing it must be in your possession, directs me to desire you will forward it to...
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...
Enclosed are copies of letters written to you agreeably to their dates. They are sent on the possibility that the originals may have miscarried, although the probability, I hope is much against it. In a late letter to Mr Whiting, at Mount Vernon, I have directed him not to sell the Stud horse, but to deliver him to your order. The sooner you send for him the better. Your Aunt unites with me in...
Your letter of the 19th Instt has been received, & I will answer such parts as require it. The money in your hands, belonging to me, may be lodged in Alexandria, & made subject to Mr William Pearce (my manager) his order. This will answer all the purposes of your coming down, if he is advised thereof—At the sametime write, & transmit me the accts, that I may see who have paid, and who are...
Mr. Myers duly delivered your letter of the 8th. conveying to me the invitation of the Joint Committee of the Common Hall & Citizens of Fredericksburg to be with them at a dinner to be given to General La Fayette. Uniting with the Common Hall & Citizens in all their grateful sentiments towards General La Fayette, it would afford me much pleasure to unite also, in the proposed festive...
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...
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...
A day or two ago I received your letter of the 4th instant. As it is more than probable that my tenants on Goose Creek must have resolved, ’ere this, to go or stay; any opinion I can now give with respect to the terms, will have arrived too late. If the case however should be otherwise, get the best Rent you can from them for the ensuing year, or even let them remain on the old Rent; as I am...
Not having heard from you for sometime, I am desirous of knowing whether you have purchased any of my Berkeley, or Frederick Leases? and if not, whether the prospect of doing it is so favorable as to amount almost to a certainty of accomplishing the measure? If neither, I desire you would give up the idea of purchasing, and let me have the money you have collected; with the names of the...
