Peter Tiebou Jan 27 '26 You mention the name of Peter Tiebou. That man is most necessary to us at this time. After his return from Canada he hired here for one year at $4 a month, say, to the middle of next May. Letter to Charles Livingston Thomas Collection
Peter Tiebou May 25 '27 You mentioned the comming of Peter. His year with me will not expire before the first of July ensuing. He has become much attached to various females & perhaps of various colors in the vicinity & is abroad almost every evening, -- sometimes all night. Be sure he is the same industrious, honest creature he ever was. I am told that he has declared his intention of not Journeying your way, or perhaps anywhere. In fact, I so little understand him when he brandishes his stammering half english & half french that I converse with him very seldom. Letter to Charles Livingston Thomas Collection
