I have sent money to Mr Pearce for the purpose of discharging & taking in my Bond. On my Books, kept in my absence from Mount Vernon by my de⟨ceas⟩ed nephew Geo. A. Washington, were articles charged to you as pr the acct No. 1 enclosed amounting to £⟨18.18.8⟩—The cash payments in discharge of the Bond are cont⟨ain⟩ed ⟨in⟩ the acct marked No. 2.

Doctr Tate being among those who had fled from the City during the raging of the Yellow fever I was unable to lay the Statement of your case before him till his return when he sent the enclosed opinion with a request that I would read, & forward it to you. As soon as I had done so, I sent Mr Dandridge to his lodgings in order to desire him to proceed immediately to Alexandria in the Stage of...
Letter not found: to Lund Washington, 11 April 1790. In a letter to GW, 28 April 1790 , Lund Washington refers to “Yours of the 11th.”
Company, and several other matters which pressed upon me yesterday, and which has obliged me to postpone my gourney a day longer is the reason why I did not acknowledge the receipt of your letter by Ned.

I know as little of G:W.s plans or wishes as you do, never having exchanged a word with him upon the subject in my life. By his Advertisemt—& from what has frequently dropped from Fanny, he is desireous of getting a place in this Country to live at. Before their marriage he & Fanny were both told that it would be very agreeable to Mrs W. & myself, that they should make this House their home...
Mrs Custis has never suggested in any of her Letters to Mrs Washington (unless ardent wishes for her return, that she might then disclose it to her, can be so construed) the most distant attachment to D.S.— but if this should be the case, and she wants advice upon it; a Father Mother, who are at hand, & competent to give it, are at the same time most proper to be consulted on so interesting an...
I have received your letter of the 30th Ulto with a Catalogue of my Books—When you go next to Abingdon, see if there is any there with my name or Arms in them, & forwd the list. I am truly unfortunate that after all the expence I have been at about my House, I am to encounter the third Edition, with the trouble & inconvenience of another cover to it, after my return. That there can have been...
I do not blame you for the wages which you gave Evans; I have no doubt of your having engaged him upon as good terms as you could, and as it was my wish to have the work forwarded, this was all I had a right to expect. In one of your letters (speaking of the difficulty of getting workmen) you recommend it to me to engage some of the Enemy who were prisoners with us—Many of whom you say, are...
By the last Post I informed you of my intended meeting with Sir Guy Carleton for settling, among other things, a plan for restoring the Negros and other property belonging to the Citizens of the United States.
