As soon as I returned to this City, and had waded through the Papers, and other matters wch were laid before me on my arrival, and claimed my earliest attention, I recollected the request in your letter of the 19th of June, and herewith enclose copies of the Papers agreeably to that request. With great esteem & regard I am—Dear Sir Your Obedt Servt DLC : Papers of George Washington.

When I inform you, that your letter of the 19th Ulto went to Philadelphia and returned to this place, before it was received by me; it will be admitted, I am persuaded, as an apology for my not having acknowledged the receipt of it sooner. If I had entertained any suspicions before, that the queries which have been published in Bache’s Paper proceeded from you, the assurances you have given of...

Your letter of the 12th ulto, after travelling to Philadelphia and back again, was received by me, at this place, the 1st instant. The letter from Madame de Chastellux to me, is short—referring to the one she has written to you for particulars respecting herself & infant son. Her application to me is unquestionably misplaced, and to Congress it would certainly be unavailing, as the Chevalier...

A short time since I wrote to you, and hope the letter got safe to your hands. If this should reach them, it is intended to introduce Mr Strickland, of Yorkshire in England, to your civilities and attention—His merits, independent of the recommendation of Sir Jno. Sinclair, will entitle him to them. From Monticello, Mr Strickland intends crossing the ridge for Winchester; and to return to this...

I received your letter of the 23d Ulto; but not at so early a period as might have been expected from the date of it. My mind has always been more disposed to apply the shares in the inland navigations of Potomac & James River (which were left to my disposal by the legislature of Virginia) towards the endowment of a University in the U. States, than to any other object it had contemplated. In...

Has not a letter of his of subsequent date to that laid before me yesterday,...
