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 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...
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...
Agreeable to the Generals Wish, signified in his letter to you that the people who may have settled on his Lands shou’d be notified of his Intention of asserting his Claims, when out on racoon, I made out several Copies of your Advertisement & directed them to be set up on the Generals lands there, I have also directed some Copies to be set up on his Chirtiers land. I conversed with several of...
According to your request I made every enquiry I cou’d when on the Monongahela and at Fort Pitt respecting the Situation of your Lands on the western Waters, as also of your Plantation under the care of Mr Simpson. I cou’d get no satisfactory account of either indeed the short time I was in that Country put it out of my power to get the information I cou’d have wished, it being only four days...
I recd your favor of the 8th Inst. I have never met with any other bill of Exchange among my Fathers Papers but the one Sent you I fear the Bill by some accident may be lost as I have frequently heard my Father complain of not being able to get money from Armisteads Estate[.] As he coud not get money for his own bill t’is more than probable he did not get the money for yours. I made no offer...
Being at Richmond for some time past did not get your favor of the 7th Inst. till yesterday. I have inclosd a Coppy of the Account you requested, the articles you stand Charged with ⟨not⟩ extended I will get the accot of from Mr Payne & send you. I think I have seen amg my Fathers papers a list of money he was to receive & pay away for you at one of the General Courts I have looked for it but...
Since here, have made every enquiry respecting the Land which you wish’d to be informed of. As yet have not been able to get any satisfactory account of it. Mr Geo. May who sold the land to the late Doctr Skinner has promissd to make particular enquiry and give me the information which you want. I expect to leave this in two weeks on my way to New Orleans If I can get the information of the...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 16th September with Mr Cowpers letters inclosd. I shoud have answered your letter e’er this had I not waited to hear from Mr Cowper in answer to a letter I wrote him the 14th November respecting the No. Carolina land. I have not had any answer to my letter which I am a little surprised at. Inclosed is a letter reed the begining of November...
