Letter not found: from Bryan Fairfax, 28 Nov. 1799. In a letter to Fairfax of 30 Nov. , GW refers to Fairfax’s “favour of the 28th Instt.”
I was much pleased last week in receiving Your Favor of the 20th January by the Hands of Mr Dandridge. And tho’ I am thinking now of my Return, and with anxious expectation of being able to set off in a few weeks yet I could not omit acknowledging the Receipt of it, so sensible am I of the Favor you continue to do me. I am very glad to find that some of the Letters I mustered up resolution...
I wrote to You from Hampton Road rather a long Letter giving a detail of naval Occurrencies, and put the Letter into the Hands of the Pilot who promised to have it sent to Mt Vernon, and intended on my Arrival to go on with an Account of the same kind, but the night after my arrival I became so unwell & continued in such a State of Depression for many days that I was scarce able to write to my...
I wrote to You another long Letter from London which I put into the Post Office to go by the next Packet to New-York, since which I have taken a Journey to this City, and having delivered your kind Letter of introduction to Mr Strictland, have been very civilly treated by him—He desired me to present his respects to You—He remembers meeting me three years ago between George town and...
The further detention that our Ship has met with here gives me the Leisure to write to You a few Lines before we take our final Departure. It has been to me a very tedious time—indeed I have not for many years past had such an Exercise of Patience as I have had for the last four or five weeks; first from the delays in setting out when I was anxious to apply the remedy that I thought my health...
I have received the Packet with your kind Letter. This late Instance of your Friendship has increased my Gratitude which has continued more or less for many years. I return you many thanks and all the acknowledgements I can make, and now on my departure, I may venture to say that I have not ceased almost daily to pray for you for more than twenty years. I have experienced the uncertainty of a...
Letter not found: from Bryan Fairfax, 16 Dec. 1795 . On 3 Jan. 1796, GW wrote Fairfax: “Your favor of the 16th Ulto came safe.”
I have received Your Favor with the Letters inclosed but I did not receive it till last Week, owing to my not knowing that there was a Letter for me in the Office till it had lain there some time, and I then being from Home did not get it immediately, nor for some days, thro’ a mistake also on Accot of another Letter that had come to the Office for me in the mean time. And since, I have waited...
I have received the Letter which You have done me the Kindness to write, tho’ unexpected; and received it as another Instance of your long Friendship; and was also pleased at Your entire submission to the will of Heaven in Your late afflictive Loss, tho’ it was no more than I expected. For having encountered & surmounted many & various Difficulties & disappointments, and believing in a...
As I have always experienced the Sincerity of your Friendship and as on that Account I lay myself open to You more than to any man I now make a little Apology to you in order to make my Mind at ease in regard to a little Incident I am about to mention. Such is my Regard that I have some times been uneasy lest you should be displeased with me. And I remember in particular about 10 or 12 years...
