As the death of Mr Valentine makes it necessary for you to employ a new Steward for your Business below, it is probable many proper Persons will apply for the Place, and I have no doubt of your readily choosing a good one, which may make any Information from me on that Subject very unnecessary, Yet as the fullest information & the greatest choice can do no harm, I cannot refuse the request of...
Mr James Hockaday of this County informs me that he intends to apply to you to succeed Mr Valentine in the Management of your Estate below, and notwithstanding my warm recommendation of Mr John Hopkins who first applied to me, I think it my duty, in Justice to Mr Hockaday; at his request, to inform you, that I have always been acquainted with him from my Infancy, & that his Character for...
I now am to give you an Account of my Proceedings with Mr Black which I am afraid will not prove so satisfactory as I could wish. After going to the Office in King William & geting what Papers I could find I went to Mr Black’s for further information, but could not see him, I then left a Letter informing him that I should wait on him, from King William Court with Mr Wythe’s Opinion and, in...
I am sorry my Letter was so long on its passage to you as the most perfect Account of my proceeding with Black would not be very satisfactory. As I have not seen or heard from Mr Hill I took what I thought the best conveyance by a Gentleman who was going directly from hence to Fredericksburg & promised me he would deliver the Letter to Col. Lewis which he has since informed me he did with my...
Mrs Black has at last consented to execute the Deed to you which is done & now in my possession. Col. Pendleton & Mr Lyons have also acknowledged a Deed in King Wm Court to confirm your title to Romoncock, & Mr Lyons & Mr Power have acknowledged a Deed as Attos. of Seton for the Mill & 100 Acres of Land, there seems to be nothing wanting now to compleat your title but a Deed from Col. T. Moore...
It is probably a very unseasonable time to interrupt that attention you must be constantly paying to the momentous concerns you are engaged in, but I could not omit so good an Opportunity as offers by Mr Walker to let you know that I am alive and in good health, and that all our Relations at present enjoy the same blessing, as far as I know or have heard, for it is seldom I have the pleasure...
Our Country has for sometime past been greatly alarmed by the appearance of a very formidable Fleet (upwards of 200 Sail) in the Bay of Chesapeake, which from their first appearance moved very slowly up the Bay, & we have now Accounts of their passing by the Mouth of Potowmack 2 or 3 days ago, This Country is in as bad a situation to resist an Invasion at present as you can possibly conceive,...
Your favor of the 15th of Feby, and your kind, tho’ short, note in my Sisters Letter of the 29th ult. I have received, (the first was very long on it’s Passage). I am much obliged to you for the trouble you took to inform me of the situation of Matters in your Army. It gives me pain to think those brave Men who with you are indeavouring to secure every blessing to us should want for any thing,...
Altho I am not very fond of writing, and, amidst the multiplicity of momentous Affairs in which you are involved, would avoid engaging you in an uninteristing Correspondence, yet I always promised myself the pleasure of writing to you whenever I had anything interesting or pleasing to communicate—or any thing New—This last happens to be the case at present. After about a dozen years absence I...
Influenced by every motive, every consideration to regard the welfare and happiness of my dear Sister & her Family as my own, I cannot but be most sensibly afflicted by her late great Misfortune; the time and the manner of it’s happening is indeed very affecting to us all, and from the unhappy situation of my own Family particularly so to me, as I am hardly in a situation even to attempt that...
