Your favor of the 10th. was put into my hands by Thomas Walker about 3. or 4. hours ago, and I immediately take measures to obtain the 600. Dollars desired, in such a form as he could most safely carry & might answer your purpose. I have accordingly been able to obtain 500. dollars in 10. bills of the United states branch bank of Norfolk & 100. Dollars gold. the former will be inclosed herein;...
I recieved the day before yesterday your favor of the 3d. inst. the post leaving this always the day before the return of the post of the preceding week prevents our neighborhood from recieving an answer from hence till the Thursday sennight after they have sent off their letter. I do not perfectly understand your statement of the additions on account of a greater quantity of forest land than...
Your favor of the 16th. was recieved on the 20th. the post having departed the day before as usual. you ask what shall be done with Shadwell? there was a wish in mr Tom Esting Randolph to have rented it. mr T M Randolph can tell whether he now wishes it. if not, let it to some one tenant, if you please, subject to my approbation which can be asked in a fortnight always. I say to some one...
In my letter of Oct. 8 covering a Columbia bank note for 1240 D. 27 c I recommended to you to dispose of it without delay. I had more reasons for this than would have been proper then to mention. that bank is now in a crisis which may end mortally. if that note is still in your hands or any where else so as not to have cleared us of all responsibility for it, if it be sent to me by return of...

Your favor of Nov. 6. was recieved in due time. a press of business has prevented my answering sooner. I am willing to recieve William Davenport as the assignee of your lease of Shadwell. on considering the parts of the lands of the Hendersons which fall to me, I observe that it would be desireable for me to have all their shares in the three parcels on the river, but most especially in the...
Your favor of the 2d. instant was recieved by last post, desiring a remittance of the balance of 131. D 47 c due you on our settlement of May 22. I accordingly now inclose you 140. Doll. in bank bills of the United states, as these cannot be got exactly to the fraction desired. I hope it will be recieved in time for your purpose. sundry approaching calls for money render it absolutely...
Lest you might be gone to Richmond, as mentioned in your letter of the 2d. instant , I have thought it best to send the balance you desired, to mr George Jefferson of that place; and have accordingly inclosed 140. D. this day in a letter addressed to you, sealed, and have desired him to deliver it to yourself or to your written order; so that you can apply to him on your reciept of this. in...
The certificate for 1000. acres of land in the name of John Peyton which you inclosed me shall be forwarded to the war office by this day’s post. without some authentic designation however of the person to whom the patent is to be granted it will of course come out in the name of John Peyton. I mention this, that if you wish it otherwise, you may furnish me with the supplementary papers...
Being unacquainted with the rules of proceeding in the land office of the U.S. I am unable to say whether they will admit a patent to be made out for yourself, rather than the heir at law. I suspect it must be for the latter; leaving you to make good your claim in opposition to him in a court of law, but this is conjecture only. Perhaps if not inconvenient for you to come by, you might in...
