I much wish’d to have accompany’d Jack, but cannot: & what is worse, We part on an Uncertainty, which may be disagreeable. I have some Thoughts of setting off for St Mary’s this Week; & if I do get away, I can hardly expect to return again till I remove finally, which cannot well be sooner than the latter End of next Month. So that, if I do not come by Mount Vernon, Jack needs not come hither,...
I have been much concern’d that it has not been in my Power to spend a few Days at Mount Vernon, as I hop’d I should. A very painful Disorder I labour’d under when Mastr Custis left Me, confin’d Me to my Bed a Fortnight, and now it is too late to set out, when I expect all my little Flock to return immediately, as Some of Them already are. You will please therefore to let Mastr Custis know,...
I have just Time to put a Cover over The Enclosed, & to add to the Informa[tio]n I suppose Mastr Custis himself has given You, that He has enjoy’d perfect Health ever since You left Him, exceptg two or three Days that He complain’d of a Pain in his Stomach, which I at first took for the Cholic, but since think it more likely that it might be owing to Worms. As it easily went off, by two or...
I send Joe over on purpose to let you know that The Govr & Mrs Eden will not wait on you this Trip: Some unforeseen occasions call them again to Annaps sooner than They expected; they therefore desir’d Me to beg your Excusing Them at this Time. They still talk, if it be practicable, that they will visit you before Mrs Eden leaves the Country; but, of This shou’d I chance to get notice, as I...
I persuade myself, You & Mrs Washington, as well as the hospitable & good Family You are in, will readily excuse my not waiting on You, when I assure You that Nothing shou’d have prevented me, but my being in a Situation, which renders me totally unable. It is but the third Time, I ever had the Tooth Ache: & no Ideas I had form’d how painful so slight a Cause cou’d be, were adequate to what I...
I am much concern’d for Mastr Custis’s Indisposition, wc. yet I foresaw, & shd have told You so, as I did Him, had I not been unwell at the Time He left us. He is fond of Fruit, & wt is worse for Him, He is fond of Cucumbers; & to These, I doubt not, in a grt Measure, He owes his bilious Complaints. A better Air, & stricter Attention, I trust, will soon restore Him to his former Health. I did...
I have seldom found myself worse disposed to write, than I now am; being exceedingly displeased with Mr Custis, that, according to my express Desire to Him, He is not here Himself, to write & put both Yourself & his Mother out of all further Anxiety on his Account. On Saturday last, He sent Me word, He would come down on the Monday, but the Doctor being of Opinion that possibly He might give...
