Letter not found: to William Booker, 6 May 1799. On 15 May Booker wrote GW : “Your letter of the 6 Inst. I duly receivd.”
Letter not found: to William Booker, 22 June 1798. On 6 July Booker wrote GW : “I receivd your Letter of the 22 Ulto.”
From the good report I have had of your improved threshing machine, I am desirous of getting one or two of them erected; and as expeditiously as possible. The Scantling for two, upon the Plan of Mr Jefferson & others, of the Scotch machine, had been got before I received the account of yours; and may, I presume, be appropriated to the latter.

For the trouble you have taken in this business, I feel myself very much obliged. A Mill grinding from 15 to 20 bushls a day, with two horses, would nearly, if not entirely, answer all my purposes; with the occasional aid of the Water Mill, which in...
I am sorry to inform you that, the Machine you erected for me at the Union farm has by no means answered your expectation, or mine. You will recollect, that in its first performance, under your own direction, the execution in the course of the day fell short of 50 bushls—it has been growing worse, until I was obliged to disuse it, not being able to get out 25 bushls in the day; and before 500...
