Varick transcript , DLC:GW .
By saturday’s post I received a Letter from Mr Christopher Cowper, dated the 18 Instant, enclosing one from you of the 23d of June. The Letter alluded to in the last, has been received. It is a very singular occurrence that the Capt: Waglam, to whose care £140. was committed for my use, should rather choose to hazard the conveyance of it back, then deliver it to my Secretary, whom I left in...
While I acknowledge, with grateful sincerity, my personal obligations to the Legislature of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, for the very flattering manner in which they convey their congratulations on my election to the Chief-magistracy of our confederated republic, and for the approbation they are pleased to express of my public conduct —it affords me peculiar pleasure...
I have some Spring Barley for sale, and if you incline to buy it, would be glad to know what you will give delivered at my landing; or if this is not convenient for you what your price at Baltimore is.

Poor’s...

Elsewhere GW calls his English turnips “Norfolk turnips,” from the county in southeast England where the raising of turnips ( Brassica rapa ) as a field crop for livestock was highly developed. Tull’s method of drilling the seed in rows to permit cultivation by horsedrawn...
I am informd that the Bill in Chancery exhibited against me by Mr Ross and others was presented and receivd last Court & an Order made for me to answer—I formerly told Mr Ellzey that, seeing no cause why he might not prepare the answer also (as I wanted nothing but my due, & not to procrastinate matters) he might do it accordingly but how far his ill health may suffer him to prosecute business...
Since my letter of the 14th Instt by Majr Franks (—for the post once a Week, & travellers accidentally—are all the conveyances I have)—Your favours of the 16th & 19th are both come to hand. My Sentiments respecting your serving in the Southern Army this Winter, were fully, though concisely explained in my last. if I was to add aught to the opinion there given, it should be to wait (as we are...
