The articles you had the goodness to send me this forenoon (when it was not in my power to acknowledge the receipt of them) came very safe, and I pray you again, to accept my thanks for the trouble I have given you in this business. Enclosed are Seventy five dollars, which is the nearest my present means will enable me to approach $74 50/100 the cost of them. Your letter to Mrs Law shall be...
My Coach horses, having performed (faithfully & well) all the duties I have required of them, they are sent to you, agreeably to my promise; hoping they will be as serviceable to whomsoever they are committed, as they have been to me; and it is my wish that they may meet with a continuance of their former kind usage. As every moment of our time while we remain in this City, will be closely...
Persuaded as Mrs Washington and myself are, that your own good sense will always dictate what under existing circumstances shall appear best, we have only to regret that in the present instance it will deprive us of the pleasure of your company to Virginia. We unite in every good wish for you & Mr Powell, and I have the honor to be with the most Affectionate regard, Your most obedt Servt ALS ,...
I pray you to accept my Compliments and thanks for having favored me with the perusal of the enclosed “Strictures &ca” — And an assurance that the sentiments and charges therein contained, have not given me a moments painful sensation. It is to be regretted, however, that the Author, if his object was to convey accurate information to the public mind had not devoted a little of the time and...
Receive, I pray you, my best thanks for the Prints you had the goodness to send me; and my acknowledgments of your kind, and obliging offer to chuse some thing handsome, with which to present Miss Custis. The difference between thirty & Sixty (or more) dollars, is not so much a matter of consideration, as the appropriate thing. I presume, she is provided with a Muff; of a tippet I am not so...
I feel much obliged by your kind & polite invitation to dine with you to day, but am under the necessity of denying myself that pleasure. I had, previously to the receipt of your Card, resolved not to dine out of my lodgings while business should detain me in the City: and, in consequence, had declined Invitations from Mr Liston, and the Chevr de Freire. But a more conclusive reason than this,...

Jefferson’s notes of Virginia I have the pleasure to send you. My sett of the Bee is entirely broken. Into whose hands all the vols. have fallen I know not. Among those remaining in my possession, I cannot find, by their indexes (which I have recurred to) “Doctr Franklins strictures on the abuse of the Press.” Hoping we shall have the pleasure of seeing you at dinner tomorrow (four o’clock) I...
I thank you for the information contained in your note of this date —although I am not, nor have not been, under any apprehension of the desolating Fever. I am to dine this day at Mr Willings, and if you are disengaged, will have the honor of drinking Tea with you in Third Street, afterwards. I am always Your Most Obedt Obliged and Affecte Servant ALS , ViMtvL . Letter not found. GW dined on...
A Mail of last week brought me the honor of your favor, begun the 11th, and ended the 13th of this instant. Had it not been for one circumstance, which by the bye is a pretty material one—viz.—that I had no love letters to lose—the introductory without the explanatory part of your letter, would have caused a serious alarm; and might have tried how far my nerves were able to sustain the shock...
The enclosed thoughts are well conceived. The sentiments are just; and altho’ the envy expressed in some of them is to be regretted, yet it is hoped that Mira, at the age of four score, will stand as much in the way of Cloe as she does at present; and will appear the Same in the eyes of all who may then see her, as she did on her anniversary of fifty. AL , ViMtvL . The enclosed poem reads:...
