Having an immediate occasion for a sum of money, it would be very acceptable to me to receive what is in your hands of mine. An order on any person in this place, that would be punctually complied with, will suit me. I am Sir yr Very Hble Servt ALS , NcD : Battaile Muse Papers.
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 21 Feb. 1789. On 12 Mar. GW wrote to Muse : “I wrote to you on the 21st Ulto.”
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 27 Jan. 1786. Muse wrote GW on 20 Feb. : “Your Favour by Daniel McPherson dated January The 27th Last I received.”
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 6 May 1786. On 4 June Muse wrote GW : “Your Favour dated the 6th may Came To hand.” Muse’s letter of 4 June appears to be in response to GW’s letter of 12 May which in turn was GW’s response to Muse’s letter of 6 May ; Muse may have meant to cite GW’s letter of 12 May rather than a missing letter of 6 May .
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 27 Oct. 1785. In the Thomas Birch’s Sons catalog no. 683, April 5–6, 1892, this letter is described as “Acknowledging the purchase of 1000 bushels of wheat from Battaile Muse, for which he agrees to pay 6 shillings per bushel.”
I did not receive your Letter of the 4th of June seasonably enough to return an Answer so soon as you may have expected. I cannot inform you with any precision what the flour made of the 500 bushels of wheat sent to my mill is worth, as I am informed that flour has risen to the Northward, and the short crops of wheat this season will undoubtedly have a great effect upon the price of it. I...
Not till within these two days did your letter of the 11th of last Month get to my hands. I have sent your advertisement to the Printer and as soon as the number of copies are struck they shall be forwarded to you. My former letter containing my sentiments respecting the flour at my mill, I have done nothing in it since rather wishing that you would pursue your own judgment with respect to the...
Although it is my wish, & desire, that the Papers belonging to the deceased Colo. Fairfax was in the hands of his Executors, or in those of any other whom they may think proper to appoint to receive them—yet, prudence dictates to me the propriety of an order from them for their delivery. This, as I have never seen your power of Attorney—and as you decline sending your Waggon for them now, can,...
I want to change my seed wheat, but do not incline to sow any but of the white kind, I shall be ready to commence my seeding in a few days and if you have of this kind, ready, either of this, or the last year and will receive payment for it out of your collection of my Rents, I should be glad to have sent me from one to three or four hundred Bushels.—I will give the Alexandria price at this...
In an overhaul, and arrangement of my papers, I have found an agreement (and Bond for the performance of it) with your father; by which he was to convey all the right, title, and interest which he had in a tract of 7276 acres of Land on the Great Kanhawa, to me. This, I beleive, was accordingly done; but it runs in my mind (though Colo. Pendleton undertook to see to the recording of it) that...
