I recieved yesterday your favor of the 18th. if you can sell the lands of Henderson South of the road, I shall be very much relieved indeed by it. as to price, if I can get as much by the acre for what I sell as I gave by the acre for the whole, I shall have made a good bargain, inasmuch as I shall get the most valuable part at the average price of the whole. but any price from that down to 4....
I have been obliged to change a little the arrangement I had made with you as to the paiment of the 375. D. by inclosing you an order on Gibson & Jefferson for 100. D. in Richmond, as I was not able to remit to mr Benade from this place more than 275. D. this I did yesterday in an order of the bank of the US. at this place on that at Philadelphia to that amount; and I informed him that you had...
I recieved yesterday your favor of Dec. 1. and I think you must have misinterpreted the expressions of my letter of Nov. 28. as on a revisal of that I find nothing which could convey an idea of dissatisfaction with yourself. I am sure nothing of that kind was intended because it was not felt. I barely referred to the opinion given in mine of Sep. 8. that 375. D. was double the worth of the...
I recieved last night your letter of the 19th. and altho’ I do really consider the sum of 375. D. as double the worth of the property as stated in my letter of Sep. 8. yet for the sake of peace & to consolidate the whole title I should be willing to give that sum for it. but it is totally out of my power to do it on the short notice you give. you know I settle all my pecuniary affairs in the...
On the reciept of your letter I wrote to mr Bacon to send me the account which I had left with him to convince you of the errors of addition in it. it is now before me. your addition makes the debits £53-10-1 the Credits  42-10-6 Balance 11-1-7 the true addition makes the debits £51-8-7 Credits 42.17-6 Balance 8-11-1 = 28.5
Your favor of Jan. 21. came too late to be answered by the same post. I approve of the purchase of the property of the three youngest children of mr Henderson: but it is really not in my power to give such a sum as you mention for James Lewis’s property even were it worth it. that is to say I could not spare such a sum of money from more pressing calls. if I recollect rightly he has nothing...
Your favor of the 16th. was recieved by the last post. it is quite out of my power to be a purchaser of land. nobody is more puzzled to make both ends meet, and I fear at the close of my office I shall find I have not done so. it will be as convenient for me that mr Bacon should recieve corn from you as money: but you must be so good as to inform him yourself what he is to recieve from you &...
The fifty dollars which I was to remit to mr Maddox went from here on the 12th. and were recieved by mr Bacon on the 15th. inst. which was two days before your letter was written. but I am to remit 50. D. more to him early next month, & should he not have put the former remittance into your hands, if you will get an order for the next & let me have it by return of post, I will make the...
I was so much engaged in preparing for a post that I could not answer by your servant the letter he brought, requesting me to settle the accounts between Colo. Lewis & yourself. I might state as a good reason for declining it, that I am by no means sufficiently versed in matters of account to undertake that office with the necessary consciousness that I could properly discharge it. but...
On reciept of your letter from Lancaster, I wrote to mr Hay to engage mr Wirt as assistant counsel in your case in chancery. I inclose you his answer. wishing to avoid appearing in this case I must get the favor of you to write to mr Wirt & to do what is needful in the case. Accept my friendly salutations & best wishes.
