Letter not found: to George Augustine Washington, 8 Dec. 1784. On 25 Feb. 1785 George Augustine wrote to GW : “I received with inexpressible pleasure Your two friendly Letters of the 26th of Novr, and 8th of Decr.”
After short stages and easy driving, I reached this City on Sunday afternoon. Only 4 states—viz. Virginia, South Carolina, New York and the one we are in, are as yet, represented; which is highly vexatious to those who are idly, & expensively spending their time here. I hope the fine rains which have watered this part of the Country were not confined to it; or rather, that the Clouds which...
My last letter to you, was dispatched without the enclosed; wch was forgot at the time of Sealing it. Since then, I have received your letter of the 23d of August, & am very sorry to find by it that you still continue so much indispos’d. Doctr Craik will write to you by this opportunity, & will, I presume, give you his opinion of the propriety of giving the Air & Climate of Rhode Island a...
I have received two letters from you at Barbadoes, & three from Burmuda. The last informing me of your intention to embark for Charleston, which I much approve of. I have not wrote to you since you left Mount Vernon, first because I did not know where to direct to you & next because I was on the Western waters when your first letters from Burmuda came to this place. My best wishes however have...
The extreme heaviness of the roads occasioned by the late rains, and gullied situation, prevented my getting further than this place yesterday. and now I am waiting a while for a cessation of rain, rather than to take Joe out in it. It did not occur to me when I was making out my Memorandum for you, that the cause which prevented Morris from proceeding in his field for experiments, might not...
Giles bringing the enclosed from Alexandria & presuming it was on the business he was sent about, I opened it before I discovered the mistake. Endeavor among other things you were to have enquired after, to engage me some Pompion (Pumpkin) seed. and ask if a good kind of sweet Potatoe seed can be had in case I should not be able to get enough in this part of the Country to plant an Acre of...
The only design of this letter is to acknowledge the receipt of the letters from Mount Vernon of the 10th & 11th; and to let you or your Aunt know that the Buckles and knives mentioned in my last as having been sent, were not forwarded—I expected when I was writing those letters that Mr Porter would have been the bearer of them, but he is yet in this City. By him I mean to send the Buckles and...
Your letter of the 24th, with the report, is before me; & such observations as occur, shall be handed to you. In plowing the drilled Corn, it is to be remembered, that throwing the furrow always to the plant, will leave the land in high ridges; and make it more liable to wash, & run into Gullies; to avoid wch, was one of my principal motives for introducing the Hoe & common Iron toothed...
As soon as I got your letter announcing your intention of spending the Winter at Charleston I wrote you by Post, under cover to Colo. Willm Washington—& sometime after by Mr Laurens—by whom also I forwarded the articles of clothing you desired might be sent to you—there can be little doubt (as the Post now goes regularly) of both getting to hand. I need not therefore repeat any part of the...
