Your favour of Decr. 24. was received in the regular course of the Mail and in good order. It refreshes me to See that you write in good Spirits. Your Family and private Friends must console you, under all your humiliations in public Life. For fifteen years, i.e from the year 1760 to 1775 I was in the Valley, the dark Valley of Grief Gloom and disappointment; Unalterably devoted to Principles...
When I was at New-York in April last, I received from your brother James $500 in part payment of the interest due upon your note. There still remains about $200 of interest due—This, together with the principal, from what he then said to me, and from the assurances in your letters before that time, I suppose you are at this time prepared to discharge—If however it will better suit your...
Having been disappointed in the purchase of a peice of Land which I expected to have made in Culpeper and being comppelled agreable to contract to give up the possession of the place which I sold, I was reduced to the necessity of Renting a place for the present year and had agreed, with Lipscomb for the place which was Harry Winslow’s, who told me he had Rented it of Mr Macon who was then in...

It appears some error in Names has crept into this Buisaness which we thinck is easily accounted for.

Altho the post will leave this in a few minutes, yet I cannot permit it to depart without a short reply to your very friendly and very flattering Letter of the 1st. of Decr.

It appears by the journals of Congress that Genl. Conway resigned on the 22d. day of April 1778 and Congress accepted his resignation on the...
I do not consider any Territorial Govr. as having any direction of the factories or trading houses unless by perticular and special directions from the Presidt. of the U.S. I think that Govr.
