I take the liberty to enclose you a copy of my American Gazetteer, whh is just from the press, & pray you to accept it as a mark of the great & affectionate esteem I bear to your person & character, & of the high sense I entertain of your past services to this country. If, Sir, it shall contribute in any degree to increase the satisfaction whh you cannot fail to enjoy in your most honourable &...
Sir John Sinclair presents his best respects to General Washington, & has the pleasure of sending him by the hands of the gallant Kosciusko the remainder of the Agricultural Surveys. If General Washington should want any to complete his sett Sir John begs to know the deficient Counties, and he will take particular care to send them to America, for though those Reports are merely to be...
After the arduous task of presiding over the government of the United States, you are I trust and hope returned to the bosom of your ancient seat, there to solace yourself upon the noblest of reflections, of having snatched America from the tyranny and oppression of the Brittish sceptre, raising her to empire, establishing her government, and afterwards shielding it from foreign and domestick...
I am this moment honor’d by the receipt of your letter of this date. I have had some doubts respecting the most advantageous mode of laying off your lott & have this day advised with Mr Keith about it—We agree in Opinion & I will do myself the pleasure of forwarding to you a Sketch of it as soon as I return from Loudoun which I expect will be on Saturday or Sunday next.

Mr Ross was out of town when I recd your favour of the 7th instant otherwise I should have immediatly answered it—I have delivered to him, your Receipt. On enquiring at the Bank of Pensylvania this day, I find that no money has been deposited there on your account. Mr Ross says he will receive & prosecute Colo. Shreve’s bond, if you desire it. We have not much other news than appears in the...
I had the honor of your favor by Mr Lear, & shoud have answerd it by the next Mail but Mr Smith’s answer did not get to my hands in time. Messrs Reed & Ford shew no serious design of procuring the Stock they owe, & ought long since to have transferrd: or else they wou’d not have restricted their agent to a price at which it is utterly impossible to procure it. I have written Mr Smith a second...
After a very disagreeable and tedious passage of eight weeks from the Delaware, I was landed in Europe, with Mr & Mrs Murray, on the 7th instant, at the mouth of the Texel. We got on shore in the afternoon, & the next day pursued our journey by land towards Amsterdam, where we arrived on the 9th—Several vessels which left Philadelphia after our departure had arrived here ten days before us,...
