Letter not found: to John Lewis, 7 Dec. 1787. Lewis wrote GW on 15 Dec. that he did not receive his “favor of the 7th Inst. till yesterday.”
I have heard, and sincerely lament, the death of yr Father; and my concern is encreased by the information in your letter of the 24th Ulto—of his dying much indebted. So far as I am interested in the Lands which he has directed—by his Will—to be sold I consent to the disposal of them in twelve Months credit—The necessity however of selling them, at this time, is to be regretted; as Lands,...
I have to acknowledge the reception of your letter of the 15th of December 1787 together with the copy of my account inclosed therein—since which time I have received the two inclosed letters from Mr John Couper expressing a desire to purchase the tract of Land in No. Carolina which was the Joint property of your father Colo. Fielding Lewis and myself—These two letters, together with my answer...
G. Washington would be obliged to Mr Lewis for delivering or causing to be deliver’d by a safe hand, the Letter accompanying this, to Mr Gilbert Simpson, & if he goes by his house to Fort Pitt; for observing the size, & condition of his Plantation:& the condition of the Mill—& for enquiring how many Tenants he has placed on the Land, for how long a term, & upon what Rents. Whether there is any...
I have sent your brother Howell to Fredericksburgh to receive from you my moiety of the money which has been paid to you by Mr Cooper for the Land in Gates County No. Carolina. I expect it will be fully paid; and a statement of the Accots rendered, by which I can here after settle with, and receive whatever may be due for my part, from Mr Cooper, without giving you any further trouble in the...
The protested Bill sent me by my Nephew, is not the one I was wishing to be informed about and therefore I return it under this cover—The one I miss, was drawn by the Executors of William Armistead Esqr. in my favor for near ⟨£200⟩. You should let me know what proposals you made to Mr Cowper; or, as you have left the matter with me to negotiate, I may act inconsistently therewith: and this I...
The letter of which the enclosed is a copy, renders further explanation on my part in a manner unnecessary —I must beg Leave notwithstanding to add that when mistakes happen the sooner they can be rectified the better. All I recollect of this matter (and that but imperfectly) is, that Colo. Lewis (your father) purchased from a Michael Robinson for, and on my account, the lots in...
The enclosures of letters from me to Mr John Cowper, and from him to me, &ca occasioned by his Bond to you, assigned to me; will shew you that it was not until tuesday last that I received any part of the contents of the Said Bond; & his reason for not discharging the whole of it. To hold the bond any longer, under these circumstances, would be nugatory; as he means, I perceive, to pay <...
I was in hopes the letter wch was written to you at my request, by my Nepw G. A: Washington—dated the 25th of March—wd have rendered a further application from me to you, on that subjt unnecessary —but as he says, you have made no reply to it—as I Am informed that my power of attorney to you, was regularly recorded in Gates County No. Carolina & That Mr Cowper is making great improvement upon...
