2[Diary entry: 8 December 1788] (Washington Papers)
Monday 8th. Thermometer at 50 in the Morning— at Noon and at Night. Clear warm & pleasant with the Wind at South. Went up to Alexandria on business of the Estate of Colo. Thos. Colvill to whom I am an Executor. Returned in the Evening accompanied by Colo. Henry Lee.
Letter of the 27 ult. Came to hand two days ago, very much Esteemed, with respect to the managment of any Gentelmans Estate, that was not my intention when Coming over, besides having no Acquaintance here, Could not have proper recommendations, being a Stranger, therefor any thoughts in that way is Cut of, but with regard to the Lands Either to Sell or Lease out, if it is agreeable, Should be...
The protested Bill sent me by my Nephew, is not the one I was wishing to be informed about and therefore I return it under this cover—The one I miss, was drawn by the Executors of William Armistead Esqr. in my favor for near ⟨£200⟩. You should let me know what proposals you made to Mr Cowper; or, as you have left the matter with me to negotiate, I may act inconsistently therewith: and this I...
I received your melancholy letter by the last Mail; and could not delay to express my sympathetic condolence on your unhappy situation.

They furnished a State of our affairs as they then stood. I...
Influenc’d by the best motives, friendship for you and love for my Country, I take the liberty of writing to you. The Proceedings of our Assembly no doubt you are acquainted with. It is here believ’d that a Majority of that Body under the Controul of —— are disposed to do every thing they can to disappoint & hurt your feelings. The Counties annexed to yours are arranged so, as to render your...
My business has yet detained me here. Three days ago I returned from a visit to the great falls where Genl. Washington was to have met me. The rain stopped him & the other directors, which to me was a mortifying disappointment as I entertained hopes with their aid to have concluded amicably & advantageously the dispute with Mr Fairfax. This is in train, tho the prospect is not the most...
I have duly received your favor of the 29th. of November. The Arret of Sep. 28. had been the subject of discussion with his majesty’s ministers as soon as it appeared. They will within a few days publish an explanatory arrêt exempting American oils from the operation of that of Sep. 28. In the mean time they have sent orders to all the ports to receive our oils. Tho’ these orders might not...
