Since Mrs. Adams’s Departure I have revolved within myself, whether you would not have an Inclination to purchase the piece of Land on Pens Hill (belonging to the Estate of the Honle.

His Heirs, I am informed, are now in England, that the Estate in the West Indies is under Mortgage, But that part of it...

New Care and new Trusts have for some Years past been encreasing upon me , they...
