I received yesterday only (altho’ in a letter of the 9 th ) notice from the bank of the US. that one of the notes endorsed by me would fall due the 20/23 inst. the other Oct. 17/20. instead of a renewal I have thought it better to execute at once a bond for both. I therefore inclose it to you as executed by Jefferson & myself & needing only your execution to enable me to inclose it to the bank...
Your favor of the 17 th came to hand yesterday, by which I percieve that mine of the 11 th and 17 th were still to be recieved. your’s of the 17 th puts my mind perfectly at ease. I think with you it will be better to place the debt in the form of a bond, and will join you in one on my return. in the mean while I have sent on the notes to mr Marx , to give us time. for the 3 d
My letters from Monticello informing me of the President ’s return, I lost no time in bringing under his attention the wish of your son Robert to be placed in our new Southern territories; but unfortunately I had forgotten the particular office he had in view, and having left the letter at home could not have recourse to it. but I supplied the lapse of memory by taking the broader ground that...
Your letter of the 5 th finds me under the sever e st attack of rheumatism I have ever experienced. my limbs all swelled, their strength prostrate, & pain constant. but it fills me with affliction of another kind, very much on your account, and not small on my own. a call on me to the amount of my endorsements for you would indeed close my course by a catastrophe I had never contemplated. but...
I learnt yesterday from mr Gibson , with extreme regret that I had inadvertently let slip over the day of renewing my note in the farmer’s bank . how I became guilty of this inattention I cannot say, except from the pressure & hurry of business for many days on winding up there at Monticello , my journey to this place, and opening shop again here. I now inclose a note for renewal to mr Gibson...
I have desired mr Brockenbrough to ask your advice as to the best means of remitting to mr Hollins 840.D. on account of the University to meet bills and advances which his present situation would otherwise render inconvenient to him. our money being in Richmond , I hope some means may be found to remit it to him immediately. I will with pleasure write to mr Madison on the subject of the office...
Your favor of the 20 th is recieved, and the great accomodation at the Farmer’s bank , warmly acknoleged; for without it I hardly know how I should have got along; and altho’ the additional 1000.D. from the US. bank will not be wanting longer than it’s term of payment and can be replaced with certainty from before that from other funds, yet I find it necessary for draughts on mr Gibson which...
I thank you, Dear Sir, for your kind aid in my little money embarrasments. I found, on recieving mr Gibson ’s account that there were articles of debet not known to me to the amount of about 1000.D. more than I had proposed to provide for by my note for 2000.D. which render it necessary to enlarge it that much: and I avail myself with thankfulness of the kind offer of your name on the inclosed...
Your favor of the 27 th is this moment recieved & I now inclose the notes it covered. On the subject of mr Brockenbrough the board of Visitors were very anxious to engage him, and certainly no one more so, nor with so much reason as myself. but there were two ingredients in his propositions , against one of which we were unanimous, and the other was disagreed to by a strong majority. the 1 st...
M r Brockenborough , as you describe him, is exactly such a character as we greatly need for our Proctor; but I fear much that altho he would suit us, our salary would not suit him. on this subject I have requested mr Garrett , who sets off to Richmond to-day, to consult with yourself & mr Cabell . Jefferson ’s wounds are nearly healed; but I fear he will never recover much use of his arm....
Yours of the 25 th came to hand last night and I sincerely join with you in joy on the passage of the University bill . but it will be in a great measure on paper only with our present funds. the funds we transferred to the public , with what may be saved of the 1 st year’s endowment may enable us to build this year a 3 d and a 4 th pavilion so as to accomodate 4. professors; but after this...
The letter to mr Dandridge which you intrusted to me, I delivered the next morning to mr Hunter to be put into the post office at Concord , a mile from his house . he promised to do it the same day himself, and said the stage would take it on this day, and deliver it in Richmond on the 8 th which I trust will be done. certain that I shall not suffer in your hands, I administer to this...
I recieved at this place, and yesterday only your favor of the 19 th . if it has not loitered on the road, it mus t have been at Lynchburg with which I have but uncertain communications. were a hesitation possible at the request it contains, it would proceed only from the wish to leave at the close of life as clear a state of things as possible for those who are to come after me; to be able,...
Your favor of Mar. 30. is at hand, and I so far avail myself of your friendship as to inclose you a note for 3000.D. meaning to trouble you only with the first negociation, as the renewals shall be attended to thro mr Gibson hereafter. I can by no means consent to your name being put on it, because in the place you are such a practice would overwhelm you with embarrasments. Jefferson is my...
An old balance of account between the bankers of the US. in Amsterdam and myself, believed by us both to have arisen from mistakes in the complicated matters of account of the US which, without being an Accountant, I had to direct, and to give draughts for in behalf of the various cr descriptions of public creditors, was left, under this persuasion by them & myself for further enquiry. in this...
If I could refuse you any thing, it would be the request in your’s of the 9 th to submit to the operation of having my bust taken. of all operations it is the most revolting, whether you stand, as was Ciracchi ’s method, or lie down and have your face plaistered over with gypsum , as was Houdon ’s or sit as with the painters. I have no doubt of mr Coffee ’s talents from what you say of him;...
I am detaining from the Philosophical society their copy of Col o Byrd ’s journal, until I can learn whether I may be permitted to send with it also the supplementary one of which I obtained the loan thro’ your favor. will you be so good as to favor me with the name of the person to whom it belongs, that I may sollicit the permission without troubling you? Does your new bank propose to do any...
A considerable time ago I recieved from the Historical committee of the Philosophical society of Philada a letter informing me they were in possession of a MS. volume, which from their description I concluded must be a copy of Col o Byrd ’s journal of the Carolina boundary. it was on that occasion I asked the favor of you to procure me the reading that work. as they meant to print it, they
