Rich’d 20 Novr 1820
I am favor’d this morning with yours of the 15th: Inst & observe contents—
Your draft favor Mr Garland for $600 shall be paid on demand—all the others of which you have apprised me, have been presented & paid:—and a few days ago, by a Milton Boat, forwarded the 18 Gallons Linseed oil you wrote for in a former letter, in 6 three Gallon Jugs, which I hope will reach Monticello safely.
By direction of Governor Randolph paid a few days since $10 for a Book of Prints of American scenery from Matthew Carey & Son of Philadelphia , which Book is still with me to wait your directions—Governor R. at the same time desired me to give notice to Mr Carey that both you & himself would withdraw your subscriptions to this work, which I accordingly did—they did not I fancy at all equal his & your expectations.—
I have heard of no Flour from shadwell for you yet, altho’ all the Milton Boats have been, & are now down—I presume it may soon be expected—the article is very dull sale indeed just now at $3 ⅝ @ 3 ¾—Tobacco $4 ½ @ 9—Wheat 67 @ 70 C—
