Yours of the 10th. inst. came to hand by this days post. I have given orders for Capt. Irwins company to hold themselves in readiness to march on next Wednesday morning— I would have ordered them to march on monday morning, but we have had heavy rains this three days, and have not yet subsided, so that the roads are very bad and the waters high, but I expect will be passable by wednesday. I...
Capt. Irwin’s company marched last week for Fort Mifflin, and I sent with them two of the prisoners that are under trial and whose sentence I forwarded to you viz. Robt. Brown and George Tyson, John Lewis who the other prisoner tried is still in gaol here. Enclosed is the monthly return of the troops now lying at this place. I am going to Easton to day and will forward you the monthly return...
Enclosed is the monthly return of Capt. Shoemaker’s company at Easton. That part of his company that was Lieutt. Boote’s detachment are much in want of their clothing, some of them are nearly naked. I forwarded to Col. Stevens, as you directed , some time since a return for such things as were due the men, or wanting, but have not heard from him since. With great respect I am Sir Your most...
The situation of my private affairs is so interesting at this time, that I am compelled to solicit leave to retire from the service—and as general opinion anticipates a speedy dissolution of the army. I hope that my voluntary resignation will produce no injury or inconvenience to the publick—If my request can be granted, I shall always hold my self prepared to obey your commands, should my...
your favour of the 7 th of October came duly to hand, and I would have answered it sooner to let you know that I would send you the cuttings desired, but I wished, with the answer to send you a bottle of wine made a few days before, the receipt of your letter. After it was done fermenting I racked it off and I thought it rather tart, and having read in the memoirs of the Philad a Agriculture...
With this days mail I send you a number of cuttings of the vines from which I made the wine I had the honor of sending you by M r Christie . I also enclose a bottle of the wine, made last season There is one particularity peculiarity in those vines different from any I am acquainted with, They will not bear pruning in the same manner that foreign vines do. When I had them first cultivated, my...
About the middle of last month I send sent on to you a number of the cuttings, of the Grape Vines you requested. As I have not heard, that you have received them, I am fearful they may have been lost on the way. If so? and you will send me word: I will forward on to you a smaller number of cuttings, and see that they are put in the mail, so that there can be no question of their getting safe...
I did not receive your favour of the 16 th U lt untill yesterday. I now reside in the neighbourhood of this Town, and have lived here near two years, I heard by accident of your letter being in the Post office of Havre degrace , and wrote to the Post master for it, it was very neglectful of him not to forward it to me, as he knew I resided in this vicinity, As I suppose the person to whom I...
I went last week to see the Baltimore cattle show, with a view to get the members of the Agricultural Society of Maryland to recommend the cultivation of the vine, and the making of wine. I had previously sent four kinds of wine to the President of the society, and which was drank at the Societies dinner, and generally spoke favourably of— Particularly the kind made from a grape called the...
I send for your acceptance through the Post office a bottle of wine made last September, from a grape I call Tokay, A German Priest who saw the grapes ripe said they were the true Tokay, such as he had seen growing in Hungary, I have no doubt but that these grapes are like them, but I have a strong suspicion that they are native—I found them at Clarksburg in Montgomery County at a M rs...
