The Governor was pleased to issue the following Order, vizt. All the inhabitants are forbidden to entertain any Strangers, white, Indian or negro, let them come from whatsoever place, without acquainting the Officer commanding the Troops of the names of such Strangers, and the place from whence they came. And every Stranger arriving at Cahokia, is ordered to present himself to the said Officer...
Pursuant to the Resolution of Congress of the 28th. of August 1788, and in Obedience to the Instructions of the President of the united States of the 6th. of October 1789, I embarked at Fort Harmar for Kaskaskia on the 20th. day of December following and arrived on the 5th. day of March 1790. The great length of time consumed in this Voyage was owing to a delay met with at the Falls of Ohio...
Your favour of March 30. and Ap. 17. came to hand last night. By the “attack in Metre” you mean I suppose, that written by Ned. Church, a Cockfighting Cousin and Companion of Charles Jarvis a devoted Instrument of Mr H.—Jarvis’s Mother was a Church.—This Fellow, this Ned Church, I know nothing of—I scarcely ever spoke to him in my Life.—His Traitorous Brother, I knew very well; and the Vendue...

I was extremely obliged to you for your Friendly letter of the 8th. Current, which I have been prevented from answering earlier on account of being from home. If I do not make it appear to your satisfaction that Mr. Heth has been actuated by personal pique and malice in the threatned prosecution of Mr. Brown, I will agree to forfeit your Friendship and Good opinion, which I consider one of the...
I am afraid you will be displeased in knowing where I am, but I hope you will not, as Mr. Randolph certainly had some good reason, though I do not know it. I have not been able to read in Don Quixote every day, as I have been travelling ever since I saw you last, and the dictionary is too large to go in the pocket of the chariot, nor have I yet had an opportunity of continuing my music. I am...
I recieved yours My Dearest Father with more pleasure than is possible for me to express and am happy to hear that you are at last settled at New Yorck as I am in hopes we shall now hear from you often. We are just returned from a visit up the country to aunt Carr and Mrs. Flemming’s. It has not been possible as yet to carry dear Pol[ly] to Eppington for want of horses as Mr. Randolph was...
