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...

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...
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 ,...
