Lot 5012: ALS, one page, 8 x 9.75, March 25, 1832. Letter to Mr. Pisioles, in full: "I directed my son to say to you, when he was in Philadelphia the other day to send on the carriage & pair of horses, you had the goodness to engage for me—that in answer you replied. They were all ready and should be here by the first of April next. My son now only awaits their arrival to set out for the Hermitage, that he may be there In due time to aid in the arrangements of the farm for a good crop, should the season prove favorable—and only awaits their arrival to set on his journey. I pray you therefore, to send them on as early as you can, and on the receipt of this, advise me, what day they will be here that I may have him ready to set out immediately. If it should not be convenient for you to be here, draw upon me for the amount, which will be paid—you know I wish to settle matters as they occur—I then know my means and will live within them." In fine condition, with tape repairs to three small edge tears (one of which passes through his first name).
Ex. James Lowe, October 1977.
