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 have at last purchas’d Mr John Rootes’s Land for you. He this Day assign’d the Governors Warrant for it, to me, for your Use. I don’t chuse to inclose it, for fear my Letter may miscarry, and am in hopes it will suit your Purpose as well, to receive it at Fredericksburg, the first Day of April; when I expect to have the Pleasure of meeting with you there. No Money will be requir’d of you,...
I have this moment received undoubted Information, by Express from Captain Bright of the Northampton armed Brigg of this State lying off Cape Charles that, last Night at 9 oClock, he saw from his masthead at least 100 Sail of Ships standing directly into the Capes —This Fleet was seen on Tuesday last by James Henry Esqr. and several other Gentlemen of Accomack County on their Coasts An account...
Not having received the least Intelligence of your situation, or the disposition of the Enemy for seventeen days past, and knowing that they were then so stationed, that possibly they or their adherents may have intercepted dispatches of importance, from you, or Congress to this State, I have thought it proper to send an Express to your Excellency, and to our Delegates, that if any of your...

A thousand Accidents have happened which prevented my writing to you since I had the Pleasure of seeing you at Richmond—for some Time I comforted myself with the Hope of being able to wait on you: & when I was appointed by the Convention one of their Deputies to the gen’l Convention to be held at Philada I then determined to wait on you in my Way —but the Situation of my Affairs has detained...
The little Time Mr Griffith has to spend with me, & my present State of Mind must be my Apology for this short Scrawl. The Directors of the Dismal Co. I am certain will be perfectly satisfied with any Plan which you would adopt. The one you hint at in your Letter, is I think the only one which suits the Finances & Disposition of the Company. The Members are too Lukewarm to advance Money if...
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...
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...
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...
