Inclosed I send you a Return of Cloathing wanted for Captain Irvine’s Company— You will take measures to direct it to be furnished, without delay, by the proper persons and inform Lieutenant Meminger accordingly. The troops, according to his letter being in urgent want of it— With great consideration & esteem I am Sir yr. obedt. Servant ( LS , New-York Historical Society, New York City; copy,...
I returned last evening from a visit to Gloucester, and found your servant, Tom, who had arrived on the day after I left home, waiting with your letter of the 30th July. I have this morning operated on both Eyes, although, I must confess, with no very sanguine expectations of the boy’s deriving essential relief by the operations: but I have thereby given him the only chance, which the case...
Within this Day, or two, I found myself, so much relieved, from my long continued, & painful illness, though I use my left arm, with some difficulty, as to be enabled, to finish Mrs Washingtons Teeth, and you’ll receive them, safe, I hope, by my Servant. They are—as nearly as I can now, recollect—like the old ones—As there are so many ways, to make, & shape Teeth—’twou’d be almost impossible,...
I have this minute Recd the inclosed Letter —I Cant advise any Change in the mode of the Rents that I think may answer better then the present—the plantation is rather worn to Confind them to Grain alone—while they have to pay in Tobo they may pick out manuerd Land enought for it—Shou’d you however wish any Change whatever please to mention it & it Shall be done —with great Respect ALS ,...
I hope you arrived well & that the Sun & fatigue did not encrease the bile —Dr Thornton has applied to Mr Carroll who will not take less than 15d. or 15 Cents—which in truth the Lot is worth —A Gentleman from Baltimore has been with me to day for a Lot to build upon, & the Stenographer (or short hand writer) to Congress is going to build on one of my Lots in the small Square above my stable &...
The Delay which my last Letter experienced in reaching you, may be partly accounted for, by sending my Brothers Letter (which accompanied mine) under cover to Mr Wolcott in Phila. for his & Colo. Pickerings observation —what further delay it may have met with, I cannot tell; I only know, that in too many instances, there is not that punctual attention to Duty in our Post Offices, which the...
I have received your favor of the 1st. and read all the ——— papers inclosed with much pain as I had conceived of Mr. Tucker, without honouring very much of him, a good deal of regard for him. I have signed the blank commission to be filled with the name of William Watson, the recommendation of him being sufficient, & the expediency of a new appointment apparent. I return all the papers with...
I imagine, My Dear Sir, by the letter which the post of yesterday brought me from you, that you have supposed that something not quite satisfactory to me had occurrd in relation to the erection of a Hospital at Rhode Island. This I assure you has not been the case, nor has any thing come under my view, which could lead me to think that there has been cause for blame in any quarter. It happened...
