I was much concerned to learn by a letter from Mess rs Gibson & Jefferson of Richmond that they found difficulty in procuring a bill for the remittance I desired to be made to you. I immediately wrote to them to inclose you a hundred dollar bank bill of Richmond , which I doubted not you could have exchanged. the difference between this & the amount of your bill would be no more than a just...
Your letter of Feb. 25. never got to my hands till last night. the purchase of the horse from you by mr Darnell was on my account, and the debt as much acknoleged as if a bond had been given. I had desired my merchant in Richmond , as soon as he could sell my flour from the Poplar Forest (which got down but lately) to remit a sum of money to mr Goodman , sufficient to pay your’s and other...
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...
The blockade of the Chesapeak having sunk the price of flour to 7. Bar Dollars , for which I am not disposed to sacrifice mine, and being desirous that my debts in your neighborhood therefore should not be put off for that sale, I have this day written to mr Harrison of Lynchburg to pay you 250.D. on the 7 th of April , and I have countermanded the directions
I wrote you on the 7 th a request that the money for my tob o might be paid in Richmond . it now occurs that I have about 250.D. of debts to pay in the neighborhood of Poplar Forest which it would be more conveniently done by what is in your hands, than by drawing it back again from Richm d . you will oblige me therefore by paying that sum, when due, to Jeremiah A. Goodman , and having paiment...
Your favor of the 1 st has been recieved, and altho’ it was incomprehensible to me what certificate the clerk of Henrico could want as to the deed to which you were a witness , yet I sent it to the clerk of Albemarle , who might know better.

Your letter of Feb. 3. has been recieved, and in answer to your enquiries respecting sheep, I will state that I have three distinct races which I keep at different places. 1. Merinos; of these I have but 2. ewes, and of course none to spare. President Madison has been more succesful, and sells some ram lambs, but not ewes. the Merino is a diminutive tender sheep, yielding very little wool, but...
I have taken the liberty to order my Servant to call at Monticello and get (by your permission) a few plants of the scotch broom.— Yours respectfully RC ( CSmH : JF ); at foot of text: “M r Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 12 Mar. 1813 and so recorded in SJL .
Th: Jefferson presents his compliments to mr Cocke, whose servant is desired to take as many Broom plants as he pleases, but having never found them to succeed by transplantation, he sends him some seed, which generally succeeds, altho sometimes it does not come up till the second spring.— he sends him also a little seed of the Sprout Kale , a plant he recieved from The National garden of...

Family affairs require my presance in France I am waiting only for a good...
the only difficulty I can imagine with the aid of these directions is the want of correspondent marks or letters on the different parts of your machine, you may however without them soon discover them when the machine is put in motion; I have added directions for the Drawing & Roving head, because it adds so much to the value of the Carding Engine, that you should lose no time in procuring...
Directions for using the Carding Engine Make the feeding frame fast in front of the Engine, by means of the irons and screw rod, and so placed that the cards on the main Cylinder will just pass the fluted Rollers without touching them.—The upper fluted Roller is kept down on the under one by two wires ( ) hooked ovev over the pivots of it at the ends, & under two small iron levers ( ) one end...

Taylor in Jefferson County , not far from the little village of Charleston : Being informed this morning, that Doctr Grayson , of this Town, was...

soon After I became the Advocate of domestic Animals as far as related to thier diseases, in the lecture of which I sent you a copy, mr Carver applied to me to become his advocate with our Citizens for the purpose he has mentioned in his letter to you.

I am a man of no property—or hardly any name in society—I seek not the honors—nor pleasures of the world—I could wish to be rich tho’, for I could thereby have an opportunity of extending my usefulness—yet I don’t know what I might do if I were rich, for I don’t know myself, tho’ I’ve been trying to study myself this twenty years—still I do believe I should be the happiest man in the world if...

I find there is to be a “physician” general of the arm. of the U. States —I have the vanity to think, that I am not entirely unqualified for that important place, by my age, my experience in practise, & my long experience as a teacher of a “practical” branch of medicine. Perhaps, I have some claim upon the government, as a steady supporter, so far as I can go, of the measures of the executive....

I beg you to accept the accompanying volume of “ Historical Letters .” I confess I am ashamed of the typographical execution of the work, the badness of which is chiefly to be attributed to its being published to the South of the Potomac . It is a reproach to that part of the United States that so useful an art as that of printing, should be there so much neglected, in point of embellishment,...
