When I had last the pleasure of seeing you at Mount-Vernon, you expressed an inclination to peruse the Pamphlets of the Revd Messrs Wharton & Carroll, upon the subject of their religious Controversy. Immediately on my return I wrote to Baltimore for them, but without being able to obtain Mr Carroll’s reply. I have hope of procuring it at Annapolis. In the meantime, lest you should suppose me...
Your instructions of this date, respecting your Nephews, I shall punctually follow. I have taken an Acct of the cloathes they brought with them, and shall take care that they are neither lost or abused. I had advised them to send their Shoes to be mended at Mount-Vernon, as the Tradesmen charge nearly the first cost of the shoes for the slightest repairs. If my proposal meet with your...
At the request of Mr George Fitzhugh I do myself the pleasure to forward to you Dr Youngs 1st 3d & 4th Vols. of his Tour. The 2d Vol: being missing (& never sent to me by him) I have detained the others some time, with the hope of procuring it in the Neighbourhood, in order to send you the Set compleat. Having as yet been unsuccessful, & being informed that the 2d Volume is not material to the...
I embrace the earliest Opportunity, after notice of your return to Mount Vernon, to address you on a Subject that has given me no small share of disquiet. A few days ago I received a Letter from Majr Washington; informing me that “You had been made acquainted with my draught on You in favour of Mr Porter; That you were unable to account for my applying to any Person for what was due from you;...
By your letter of the 23d, with which I have been favoured since my return home, I perceive there has been a misconception on my part of the transaction between you and Mr Porter respecting payment for the board of my Nephews. it thus arose—in the enumeration of monies which remained for me to pay according to the account transmitted, I found the sum of £17.10 due to Mr Porter on your account,...
The last time I did myself the honour to address you, I promised to take your Nephews, if it were agreeable to you, another Year. You will, I fear, suspect me of being whimsical in requesting the favour of you to release me from the obligation of that promise. I have lately engaged with some Gentlemen to dine with me by the year: and I find that the accommodating of these will clash with the...
I have just been informed by Mr McWhir that it will be utterly inconvenient to him to accommodate your Nephews any longer. After your late indulgence of me upon this Subject, it will appear extraordinary that I should so soon apply to you to let me have them again. The fact is the Gentlemen whom I had engaged, have quitted me; one, on acct of his marriage; the other, to make an unexpected...
Your letter of the 16th Inst. was handed to me yesterday in Alexandria as I was going to dinner: previous to that I had seen my Nephew George Washington, and asked him if he had heard of any suitable place for himself and Lawrence to board at after their quarter with Mr McWhir expired; he told me that it was probable a place might be obtained at a Mrs Sandford’s; I desired him to inform...
Your favour of the 18th Inst. did not come to hand ’till last Night; an account that has given me some concern, lest you should have concluded that my Silence has been owing to any difficulty in replying to the charges made by the Boys. with respect to the 1st “their being obliged to go sometimes to School without breakfast” I will not deny that it has been sometimes the Case. that it has not...
It is extremely painful to me to be so soon under the necessity of troubling you again with a Complaint against one of your Nephews. Master George has slept from Home the 3 last Nights. The first night he went away, and desired his Brother to inform me where he intended to lodge. This message did not, from accident, come to my ears till after he had slept out the next night. Last night he went...
