Your letter of the 26th Ulto came to my hands by the last Post—and the object of this shall be confined to a single point—taking another opportunity of writing to you more fully. The meaning of my last letter to you was not well expressed, if it was understood that the Actions of Trespass were to be brought before the issue of the Ejectments were known. I had no idea of this, because if my...
You will be puzzled to acct for my long silence. The truth is, before I came to this City I resolved to Postpone writing till I should have arrived at, and should have met with, a direct conveyance from it; and after I came here the variety of matters which occurred and pressed upon me has in some measure put it out of my power to do it at an earlier period. I wish sincerely that you had been...
In Consequence of your Application, I have this day issued a warrant in your Favor on the Treasurer of the United States for 22.250 Dollars in Indents of Interest, which he is directed to forward without Delay. I am, Sir, Your Obedt. & humble Servt. LS , Breckinridge Long Papers, Library of Congress. For background to this letter, see “Treasury Department Circular to the Continental Loan...
Vale Crawford died indebted to me—say One hundred pounds Virginia Curry—more or less. Previously thereto, he wrote me the letter dated Jacobs Creek, May 8th 1774 and accompanied it with the Bill of Sale herewith transmitted dated May 8th 1774. Quære, Is this Bill now valid? Will it secure my debt? This is all I want. And can it be recovered without hazarding a defeat which may add cost without...
Your favour of the 6th Ult. came duly to hand and I beg you to accept my thanks for the trouble you have had in collecting my money and for the punctuality and dispach with which you have transacted my business. The Sum of £50.0.2 sent to Colo. Biddle got safe; and the receipt of it is acknowledged by him in a letter to me. It is far, very far indeed, Sir, from my wish that you should make...
I have, at this late period, to acknowledge the rect of your letter of the 22d of may last. The reason of my not doing it in course, was not owing to any neglect or inattention on my part, but to the want of knowing that it was in my hands, for I received the Title papers of my land in Washington County which you sent to me in Philadelphia, and not expecting that any thing was containd in the...
You are right in considering yourself not authorized by Law to accept on the Loan of the assumed debt Certificates of the State of Pennsa. dated on or after the 1st day of January 1790. It is however my wish that you minute in a Book to be kept for that purpose the amount of such Certificates offered by any person together with the name of the person offering them. It will not be proper that...
I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 24 of July, enclosing a general statement of the monies received for, and paid to my order—and likewise the receipt of a letter from you of the 19th of April last, which has not been acknowledged. It is unnecessary for me to repeat to you the satisfaction which you have given me in conducting the business that was committed to your...
You mention in Your Letter of the 22d. Instant that certificates have been presented to you on which there are four Years interest due. This gives me reason to apprehend that you may have admitted the calculation of Interest on them beyond the period as fixed by Congress, which is up to the 31st December 1787—and no latter. If this should be the case you have acted contrary to my circular...
I have received your letter of the 29 Ulto and have forwarded the one enclosed to my Nephew Bushrod Washington who will undoubtedly give you every information in his power respecting the land of which I am wholly ignorant. As you have not acknowledged the rect of my letter of the 15th of September I fear it has miscarried and therefore enclose you a duplicate. Any money that you may have...
I have recd your letter of the 26th of Octr and am much surprised to find that my letters to the Western Country so often miscarry. I enclose a duplicate of a letter which I wrote to you from Philadelphia, and committed to the care of Captn Bradley who informed me that he lived at the Court House in Washington County, should pass through Carlyle, & promised to deliver it himself. I have...
Your letter of the 5th Ulto came duly to hand—The sum of £50 which you and Mr Ross have received for bringing and prosecuting my Ejectments is perfectly satisfactory to me, I only wish it may be so to you—if it is not I must repeat my request that you will satisfy yourself. I find that the greatest part of the money which you have received on my acct has been paid without suits being brought...
I am apprehensive that further applications to Congress on the subject of compensation for the service of paying Indents in Pennsylvania will be unpleasing and perhaps unsuccessful. It appears that all expence of that kind might be avoided by a payment of Indents to the state of Pennsylvania in full of the Interest due on such Loan Office Certificates as are yet in the hands of the Comptroller...
Previous to the reception of your letter of the 11th Inst. Colo. Biddle advised me of his having received from you £192.13.4 on my acct he mentioned £200 having been brought to him by the Gentleman into whose charge you had given it but £7.6.8. being in bad gold, he did not incline to receive it, and had therefore returned it to the Gentleman by whom it was sent —I am &c. P.S. Since writing...
Your letter of the 9th of Feby was long on its passage to me; but my answer would not have been delayed ’till now, had not much time been spent in obtaining the several enclosures herewith sent you: a very necessary voucher however, viz.—the British Kings proclamation, properly authenticated, forbiding the settlement of the Western Lands, in defiance of which the Defendants took possession of...
It would be more tiresome than interesting, to assign reasons for my not having acknowledged the receipt of your letters of the 26th of Novr & 7th of Feby before this. It may be sufficient to inform you, that they came duly to hand, though I had not the pleasure of seeing Majr McCormick whilst he was in Virginia, which I regretted, as I might have derived useful information from him respecting...
The letter which you did me the favor of writing to me from Philadelphia the 9th Ulto came duly to hand. A fever, of which I am but just well recovered, makes me fearful of encountering the bad roads & disagreeable accommodations between this & the Western Country at this season. Other circumstances too, rendering it inconvenient for me to be from home at this time, have combined, to set aside...
My last letter to you was so full, that I should not have troubled you again at this early period, but to observe as I did before, that upon reading the Proclamation which I then enclosed (and which I had scar[c]e time to run over before it was dispatched), it appeared to me that as it forbid in general terms, the settlement of Lands upon the western waters, it might be necessary for me to...
