I wrote You the 24th Ulto that I had contrary to my fixed resolution of returning to my Mount Vernon in a fortnight been tempted to procrastinate the time—from the flattering hope of benefiting my health, which is really so precarious that I am at a loss what to say about it—I am some times for three or four days tantalized with a belief that I am geting better but by the slightest cold (which...
When I left Mount Vernon it was my intention to have returned there about this time, but three days detention on the road in consequence of bad weather, and ill health since my arrival here will procrastinate my return a week longer than I had determen’d when I set out—On my way up I increased my Cold and Cough very much and a disagreeable hourseness attended it—which so much disorderd and...
I have received Your favor of the 8th and it affords me pleasure that the Canada Gentlemen left Mount Vernon satisfied with their reception, it being my wish that every person coming here may have their curiocity gratified and be convinced of my disposition towards civility—at the time those Gentlemen were here Fanny the Children and myself were well, but have latterly been much afflicted with...
Your favor of the 1st Inst. came to hand at the usual time. just as I had seated myself late in the evening—(Sunday) and was about informing You that the Trees seeds &c. had not arrived, Capt. Cahart sent his Boat on shore with a part of the things You advised me of having shiped on bord his Vessel; the rest the Mate who came on shore (for the Vessel did not come to anchor) informed were...
Such is my situation at this time that I can do little more than enclose the Report and acknowledge the rect of your favor of the 17th Ulto the directions therein given I shall have attended to and will reply to it and give you every necessary information before I leave this if I am able. but at this time I do not flatter myself to be able to undergo the exercise of a journey in less than a...
Being informed by Giles who arrived this morning that You expected being here as soon as he would or shortly after I cannot suppose that this will find You in Philadelphia unless You are unexpectedly detain’d—Very contrary to my expectation and wish I have been prevented returning untill last night. I was on my way as far as Westmoreland and should have been here by the time I mentioned in a...
I have received Your favors of the 15th & 17th Inst. and am pleased to find by the former that the apprehensions for the safety of Christopher and Richmond are removed—The colds which have been so prevalent have not gone through this family some being yet confined with it I apprehend as You do that the Negroes are often confined by trifling indispositions. I have directed Whiting to be...
I received on Friday last Your favor of the 2d Inst. —I might, and am sorry that I did not write You sooner, but not concieving it material as You had left home so lately and expecting on Your arrival in Philadelphia You would be much engaged—and for some time after Your departure I was, in over hauling and preparing for the changes that were to take place—the Reports are prepared in time for...
I hoped before this to have heard of Your safe arrival at Philadelphia but if the weather on Friday & Saturday after You left us, was with You as disagreeable as with us I fear You were detain’d on the road, and by it Your journey renderd very disagreeable after. Immediately on my return set about the necessary arrangements for Whiting to take the place of Fairfax; and on Tuesday, Wednesday &...
