A few days ago, I received the enclosed letter & copy of an intended address to be presented on thursday next —I have drafted an answer which I pray you to look over, correct, and amend as you may find occasion, & think best. Return it if you please by Austin, or Fanny Bassett. I am glad to hear Mrs Stuart is better—my Compliments & good wishes to her. I am with very great esteem Dr Sir Yr...

Your favor of the 16th came duly to hand, & I thank you for its several communications. The resolutions which were published for consideration, vesting Congress with powers to regulate the Commerce of the Union, have I hope been acceded to. If the States individually were to attempt this, an abortion, or a many headed monster would be the issue. If we consider ourselves, or wish to be...
As president of the Board of Directors for the Potomac company, I have the honor to enclose you a Petition which we pray you to present to your honorable House; & to use your best endeavours to have the prayer of it enacted into a Law. The petition is so full, & the request of it so reasonable, that we do not suppose there can be the least opposition to it, otherwise than by delay; because the...
Since writing to you by the last Post I have finished the measurement of my Corn, and find that I shall not make half enough to serve me. Permit me to request the favor of you therefore to enquire upon what terms any of the Delegates from the Eastern Shore would contract with you in my behalf for 800 Bushls of clean & good Oats—to be delivered at my landing as soon after Christmas as may be....
I have received your favor of the 18th, & am exceedingly obliged to you for the Contract you have entered into on my behalf, with Mr Savage, for 800 bushels of Oats. If you can extend the quantity to be had from him, to 1200 bushels in the whole, upon the same terms, it would add greatly to the favor—as my crop of Corn is much worse than I had conceived it to be when I wrote to you last (not...
The Vessel which brought the inclosed, has delivered the 800 Bushels of Oats for which you contracted with Mr Savage—Besides these, I have taken 100 more; for which I am to pay Flour. L. Washington has taken anothr & the remaining 200 hundred are taken to Alexandria for you. I have engaged this Man to bring the Corn from York River—He expects to stay no longer than Monday (to morrow) at...
Mrs Washington is prevented from dining with you tomorrow by the arrival of a French Gentleman of Rank—Genl Duplessis—who is introduced, and very warmly recommended to me by the Count de Estaing, the Marqs de la Fayette &ca—in consequence I have persuaded Colo. Humphreys to Postpone his visit to Abingdon. Wishing to shew this Gentleman (Genl Duplessis) all the Civilities in my power, I should...
Enclosed is a petition from the Directors of the Potomack Company to our Assembly which they request you to present; and to use your endeavors to obtain the prolongation which is therein prayed for. The Assembly need be under no apprehension of unnecessary delay. Interest and inclination will equally prompt the Company to dispatch. To shorten the time required may occasion a contrariety in the...
I have been favoured with your letters of the 8th & 13th Instt; but not having sent to the Post Office with my usual regularity, I did not receive them so soon as I might have done from the date of the former. I thank you for the interesting communications in both. It gives me sincere pleasure to find that the proceedings of the present Assembly are marked with wisdom, liberality & Justice....
