To Thomas Mann Randolph
Philadelphia Mar. 2. 98.
Th:J. to TMR.
All well. no news from our commissioners at Paris. no talk yet of the time of adjournment, though probably it will be very soon after we hear from Paris. I wrote you 2. letters on the 22d. of Feb. no change in the price of wheat or flour. old tobacco at 13.50. I write in the moment of the departure of the post so can only add kisses to my dear Martha & the little ones and an affectionate Adieu to yourselves.
P.S. if any mules can be got in the neighborhood for 100. Dollars of the breed of mrs Barclay’s Jack, I had rather buy them than horses taking the credit before mentioned.
