Letter not found: George Washington Parke Custis to GW, 21 Aug. 1797. On 29 Aug. GW wrote “Your letter of the 21st Instt came to hand.”
Mr. Custis’s respects to Mr. Madison & begs leave to present him with a lock of Smiths Island Wool, shorn from a tup, lately arrived at Arlington. This Wool, is the growth since last September, & Mr. C beleives may not improperly, be termed American Merino. DLC : Papers of James Madison.
My not receiving any favour from you in answer to my last, and having received one from Doctor Steuart subsequent to that, in which he mentions but little respecting the affair (which you expressed a desire of becoming acquainted with) has given me hopes to beleive that my confession of both the circumstances of the case, and my error, has obliterated from your mind all unfavourable...
Since my last I have collected all my accounts which I transmit for your perusal the only article I apologise for is an umbrella which I was unavoidably obliged to procure as I lost one belonging to a gentleman. College breaks up on Saturday and I shall be ready at any time that you may send I will look over every thing belonging to me and have them adjusted. I am very well and at variance...
Your last letter arrived by the ordinary course of the mail and conveyed the pleasing tidings of your health a theme allways acceptable to my grateful heart. With respect to my expenses I did not mean to insinuate that I was actualy in want but thought that you had lodged money in some one’s hands, to whom I was to apply—I have opened accounts with a shoemaker, tailor, and other persons of...
Words cannot express my present sensations, a heart overflowing with joy at the success of conscience over disposition is all I have to give—Dearest Sir did you but know the effect your letter has produced it would give you as consummate pleasure, as my former one did pain —My very soul tortured with the sting of conscience at length called reason to its aid and happy for me triumphed, the...
Colonel Fitzgerald arrived here about an hour ago and has politely offered to convey a letter to you. Nothing material has occurred since my last letter only that we now attend College at six in the morning which is by no means disagreable, and conduces to health. With respect to what I mentioned of Mr Carroll in my last I had no other foundation but report which has been since contradicted....
I received your letter by mamma at this place, where I had come on my uncle’s horses, and with Mr. McDowell’s permission, in hopes of meeting her. She arrived the same day that I did, and informed me particularly respecting the subject of your letter, which appeared to set heavy on your mind. The report, as mamma tells me, of my being engaged to the young lady in question, is strictly...
By the returning mail I ⟨hartily⟩ acknowledge your last favour, and am sincerely happy in having given you full satisfaction in an affair so interesting and mutually effecting to both my friends & myself. I this day finish the six books of Euclid and with that the course marked out for me while in Annapolis[.] College breaks up Monday week the 30th and I shall allways be ready when you may...
A letter from my Sister this morning informed me of your safe arrival at Mount Vernon, which has hitherto prevented me from writing—I congratulate you on a thing so ardently wished for by all those interested in your welfare—The marks of approbation and esteem manifested in the manners of the different States thro which you passed must have been highly gratifying and satisfactory, and the...
