Agreeable to my Promise I have the Pleasure to send you the Extract from the Annual Register for the Year 1788 for the Use of your Nephew. That every happy Consequence may attend the Use of the Koumiss, in his Instance, I most sincerely wish. Its Utility in many Cases, similar to his appears to be well authenticated; and tho it is reccommended as an almost universal Remedy, which I know you...
I have taken the Liberty to send you a Pamphlet which is, at this Time, a Subject of much public Animadversion, and I have done it under the Impression that, from a Consciousness of the Rectitude of your own Conduct, you will read it without Emotion, and that you wish to collect the Sentiments of Mankind with Respect to our public Measures & public Men; and, further, as I have ever thought the...
The Speaker of the Senate of Pennsylvania will have the Honor to wait on the President of the United States and Mrs Washington on Thursday next. Mrs Powel has the Pleasure to present her respectfull Compliments to them and to express her Regrets that she cannot have the Honor of dining with them upon that Day. L , ViMtvL . Samuel Powel served as Speaker of the Pennsylvania senate from 1792...
After I had parted with you on Thursday, my Mind was thrown into a Train of Reflections in Consequence of the Sentiments that you had confided to me. For tho’ they were not new, yet I had flattered myself that a nearer View of the Consequences that would probably ensue upon your quitting a Trust, upon the proper Execution of which the Repose of Millions might be eventually depending, would...
Your affectionate & friendly Attention to me, at this awfull Moment, filled my Heart with so much Sensibility as rendered me incapable of expressing my Feelings on the Subject of our Conversation, and when my amiable Friend, the President, renewed his Invitation to me to accompany you to Virginia, I could only say that I would let you know, this Evening, the Result of a Conference I meant to...
Like a true Woman (as you will think) in the Moment of Exultation, and on the first Impulse (for you know we are never supposed to act Systematically or from attentive Consideration,[)] I take up my Pen to address you, as you have given me a complete Triumph on the Subject of all others on which you have I suppose thought me most deficient, and most opposite to yourself; and what is still more...
Letter not found: from Elizabeth Willing Powel, 17 Nov. 1798. On 17 Nov. GW wrote Mrs. Powel : “I thank you for the information contained in your note of this date.”
I have the Pleasure to send the Book of Prints that you were so obliging as to accept from your Friend. I have also taken the liberty to add a few that I admire on a presumption that the Mind capable of tracing with Pleasure the military Progress of the Hero whose Battles they delineate will also have the associate Taste and admire fine representations of the Work of God in the human Form. As...
The amount of the Articles purchased you will find to be Seventy Four dols. & a half. I must request the Favour of you to deliver the enclosed Letter to Mrs Law. My Heart is so sincerely afflicted and my Idea’s so confused that I can only express my predominant Wish—that God may take you into his holy keeping and preserve you safe both in Traveling and under all Circumstances, and that you may...
I now beg leave to inform you that I will give One Thousand Dollars for your Horses on the Delivery of them, provided I understood you clearly on Saturday Evening—that they are only Ten & Eleven Years old—that they are perfectly sound—well broke, and gentle—will drive with a Postillion or in Hand as may be most convenient; for tho they are not for my own Use, yet it is most probable that I...
With Pleasure should I accede to your Proposal respecting your Coach, was I to be the possessor of the Horses; but when I assure you that they are for my Nephew you will see the Necessity of the Union being dissolved between them and their espoused Coach. I have deferred answering you Sir until I had an Opportunity of sounding him on the Subject, without directly telling him it was for Sale;...
Feeling myself incapable of nourishing an implacable Rresentment; and in conformity with your better and dispassionate Judgment I have after maturely considering all that passed Yesterday, determined to dine with you Tomorrow, when I will endeavor to meet your Ideas with Fortitude. With Sentiments of Respect & Affection I am Sir Your sincere Friend DLC : Papers of George Washington.
My Friendship for you induces me to transmit a Pamphlet that is now in Circulation in this City, & probably, may not have come to your Hands. I believe it meets with universal Approbation from all the disinterested sensible & considerate, as it is replete with good Sense & the Arguments are generally conclusive. It is possible you may not have yet taken a decided Part, & indeed the Author...
