That I may not obtrude on you & to the Interruption of other Applicants, I again have Recourse to this Mode of Application in behalf of Gentlemen who wish to be recommended to you for Appointments. The inclosed Letter was left by Mr Andrews with a Friend the Day he set out on his Return to Virginia. I hope you will excuse my troubling you with it as I shall only add respecting him that I think...
The Multiplicity & importance of Business in which I have been engaged, prevented my making the Extracts from Mr Anderson’s Letter which I promised you on Tuesday last, till unfortunately it was mislaid so that I have not yet found it—but I recollect that he gave me his Opinion freely that Mr Gayle was an honest punctual Man, & he supposed capable of making such Payments as you might require—&...
Having received a Letter from a Person who writes from the United-States Prison, signed J. E. Guinet requesting me to supplicate you for his Pardon, of, what he calls, his supposed, Offence, in fitting out in this Port the french armed Ship Le Jemeaux; protesting his Innocence lamenting the Distresses of himself & Family, & stating that he had sent in to you a Petition in his Behalf signed by...
I have at length taken up my Note. The manner of doing it (as I was disappointed in my Expectations of a Sale of my Lands, and had countermanded my Orders for Remittances from House in Consequence of those Expectations) was mortifying to me; but I am happy in being able to take your Name out of the Bank according to my Promise. I am much obliged to you for your friendly Aid.—Wish you all...
I am infinitely obliged to you and do promise on my sacred word that you shall not be called at the Bank for before the Note can be demanded I will either pay the Money out of my own, or by a Loan at the other Bank, which I will negotiate with some other Person, and in Case of my Death I have the Promise of Mrs. Page who shall be able to fulfill it, that it shall be paid as punctually as if I...
That I may not be troublesome & appear to others if not to yourself to obtrude myself too often on your Goodness, I take this Method of apologising for leaving a Letter with your Lady, & directing it to you without knowing its Contents but Sir Mrs Whiting’s Character & good Sense, induced me to comply with her Request, which was to direct her Letter & present it to you. At the Request of...
As the Time is now almost arrived when you will proceed to appoint the Officers of Government, I can no longer refrain from mentioning such Persons to you as have requested me to do so on this Occasion. That I might not be troublesome I have contented myself with stating with their Names the Offices they wished for & the Person recommending them. I have taken the Liberty of inclosing a few...
I have snatched a few Minutes from my Business to scribble an answer to the Author of the Letter which I delivered to you in the Presence of Col. Hartley. I have inclosed it for your perusal according to my Promise & hope it will serve as a Proof to you that I disdain to be an accomplice in a Cabal against you & convince Mr. Blanchard that he has mistaken my Character. I am dear Sir with real...
I am sure I need not take up a Moment of your Time to tell you how much you have obliged me by lending me your Name on the present Occasion. Your indorsing this Note will enable me to take up the other at the Bank of N. America which will be delivered to Mr. Wheaton our Serjeant at Arms on the Day of negociating the Business at that Bank, when I will send it to you cancelled. I will take Care...
I am unhappy and ashamed to be again under the Necessity of troubling you in the Manner I did the last Session—but an insufficient Number of Purchasers appearing at my Sales, which I honestly had sufficient to have paid every Debt, could I have sold the Lands and Negros which I actually set up to the highest Bidder, reduced me to the expedient of promising Payment here, hoping that my Sales...
