From Joseph Jones
Richmond 7th. Apr: 1795.
As soon as I returned from Loudoun I wrote you a letter which I supposed wod. be in time for you to answer about the time I shod. leave Fredericksburg for this place, that is that I might receive the answer by that time—yours of the 3d. inst. I have this moment recd. and can only inform you that I had requested information respecting the Rock Castle land as well as other things—and informed a proposition respecting them had been made to me by a Mr. Lacey of Loudoun but conceived the best course wod. be to effect the sale if practicable in Philadelphia. I do not know what is alluded to with respect to Mr. Mazzia or wod. give you my answer. If it respects Monroes affairs I know your respect for him wod. induce you to do what you thot. for the best and I am satisfied any thing you may think proper to do will be agreeable to him as well as to Dr Sr. yr friend Servt.
If you return by Fredg pray use my house. I have had no letter from you since early in March, but the above.
