Your favor of the 13 th with 300.D. inclosed is duly recieved, and I now return you the note for the bank filled up with 2000.D. the additional 500 D. being intended to cover my draughts until I shall get some flour down. I am concerned to learn that flour is but at 5.D. in Richmond . I see by the prices current of Philada it is there at 10.D. and some gentlemen now with me & recently from...
In my letter of Aug. 10. I informed you I should draw on you from Bedford for 600.D. in favor of Brown & Robertson . this I accordingly did; and from the same place made three other draughts in favor of the sheriff of Bedford for 111.D. Nimrod Darnell 50.D. & Jeremiah A. Goodman 37.50 D it is questionable however whether this last will be called for. in the same letter I mentioned that I...
I drew on you lately for 43. D 27 C in favor of the Mutual assurance company , and must now ask the favor of you to send me by the return of post one hundred Dollars in bills from 20. to 5. D. I find it will be indispensable to reinstate 1500.D. of my late note in the bank: for within a fortnight of from this time I shall be obliged to draw on you from Bedford for 600.D. in favor of Brown &...
Your favor of the 24 th is recieved and the 700.D. therein inclosed. I have a letter from Derieux of the 8 th a paragraph of which will shew you that he is conscious of having no legal claim on mr Mazzei it is in these words. ‘our destiny, Sir, is in your hands. and if you will, you can yet save us from the deplorable situation which threatens us, by becoming our father & benefactor [advocate]...
My last was of the 14 th . your’s of the same date was received two days after. the Frenchman who laid in the claim with mr Taylor , must have been mr Peter Derieux who married the daughter of mr Mazzei’s wife , long since dead. they live in N. Carolina , and were long
M r Edmund Randolph’s indisposition has probably prevented as yet his attendance at his court to acknolege and forward the deed for mr Mazzei’s lot. the first court of Albemarle after he shall have forwarded it to me, it shall be dispatched. I presume that the deed having been actually executed, as before advised, the delay of the formality of acknolegement will occasion no hesitation in mr...
Yours of May 29. with 150.D. inclosed was duly recieved as is that also of June 5. I should not be for recieving the paiment of the monies for mr Mazzei before they are due on any other discount than of legal interest, say ½ per cent per month. I inclose you a letter I have recieved from mr Edmund Randolph , by which you will see that he executed our joint deed to mr Taylor on the 22 d of May...
On my return from Bedford I found here your two letters of Apr. 28. & May 4. I now inclose the note for 4300.D. signed. the deed to mr Taylor I immediately executed and forwarded to mr Randolph : but as the mail is slow between this & his residence, and it is to be acknoleged by him in his court and by me in mine, this will occupy time. but it will be all done & delivered before the 1 st...
The enemy, contrary to expectations, still continuing in our waters and indicating by no movement an intention of speedy departure, with the rapid advance of the season, begin to fill me with anxiety as to the fate of my crop of flour. and I am becoming more concerned to get some price, than what that price shall be, on the principle that half a loaf is better than no bread. engagements...
I recieved the day before yesterday mr Edmund Randolph’s answer that he would execute any deed I should desire for mr Mazzei which should bind go to warrant only against himself & his heirs. I have thought it best to make a statement of the title which the purchaser may consider, and verify every material part of it for himself by the records at Richmond . he will see that the title is so...
In my answer of the 7 th to yours of the 3 d of Mar. I omitted to note what you had stated as to the bargain for Mazzei’s lot, to wit that the paiments were to be made within so many days after a sufficient title shall be made. I now expect daily an answer from mr Randolph after which there will be no delay in making what I deem a good title. but if mr Taylor should deem it otherwise, I take...
