The agreeable and long wished for News of the detachments under the Command of Major Muse and Capt. McKay having joined you in time to prevent the Success of any Attacks from the french was very satisfactory to me; whose mind was continually alarmed with the Apprehensions of your being forced to another battle when unprepared for it. The Triton arrived here the 22d with the two Companies from...
In Answer to your Enquiry I can scarce say whether I am alive or dead: I have been so long disorder’d both in Mind and Body that I am really between both. Disappointments in Love & repeated Colds have reduced me much; however tho’ I am sensible of the Follies of this Life I am no ways desirous of leaving them: I had rather bear the Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune than venture upon the...
I have received Your favor of the 20th and am the more confirmed in the Opinion I had of Doctor Savage’s being fully persuaded that his Wife really & sincerely desires the Relinquishment of the Bond, and therefore am not at all surprised that he should in such case desire it also. The Week before the last she sent to me desiring that I would make a demand for the money, and also that I would...
Since I wrote to You last I have received a Letter from Dr Savage wherein he says that his Wife acknowledges that she had once in a discontented Mood expressed a Dislike to parting with the Bond, but that she fully convinced me at our last meeting of her earnest desire to relinquish it: At the same time Mrs Savage also wrote to me begging a thousand pardons of You & me for the trouble she had...
I beg leave to trouble You with the inclosed two Letters; the one for Mr Pendleton has a little money in it including his Fee for his late advice, which I received yesterday, and which is expressed in these Words, “I think you & Colo. Washington should not pay the money for Mrs Savage’s separate use, to any person but by a power of attorney from her, especially as her changeable temper may...
Having been travelling five days and not getting home till 11 oClock last night, I find myself & Horses rather too much fatigued to go to Court as I intended. Mr Montgomerie informed me at the last Court that he shd be up at this in order to have his power of Attorney fully proved—and I wrote to Colo. Mason last week desiring to be informed of the date of his Power of Attorney, the one to Mr...
I am very glad to hear of your safe Return which I had begun to doubt of—Poor Rockwood died on his way Home. I have inclosed a Letter which I received this Fall from Mr Montgomerie. Please to let me know your Determination, and if you should be inclinable (which I doubt of) to receive a payment from him, and make one to him as Mrs Savages Attorney, and will inform me of the place it would be...
I have received your Favor of the 14th and now inclose a copy of my Last Letter to Mrs Savage, wherein I have told her my Sentiments very freely —and if you desire we should write a joint Letter when we have the pleasure of meeting I shall be agreeable to it. I can’t conveniently go down till the middle of January so that at present I can’t appoint any place of meeting even Mr Montgomerie—I...
I have just time to inform You by Mr Henderson that I sent up to Mr Smith and acquainted him that I had sold the Tract on little River provided he had not done so; and that he informed me that he had not, having been with some to look at the Land but as they had no Money he would not agree with them; so that you may depend upon having it if you don’t dislike it when you come to see it. With my...
Doctor Savage tells me that it would be very convenient to him, if you cou’d pay the £150, which you have kindly offered to advance for me, and for which I return You Many Thanks, to him or to Mr Montgomerie at the Genl Court, when the Merchants meet, and has desired me to write to you for that Purose if it should be convenient. I did myself the pleasure to write to you a few days agoe: so...
