Nothing but sickness would have prevented my attendance at the Seneca Falls on Monday next agreeably to appointment. On sunday last (occasioned by an imprudent act) I was seized by an ague & fever. on Tuesday & yesterday they returned with great violence, with scarce any intermission of the fever. Whether the Doctors efforts will baffle them tomorrow, remains to be determined; but at any rate...

The dealer’s catalog quotes from this letter: “As the business of the Poto’k Company seems, in some measure, to have come to a crisis—I have thought (since you left this on Sunday) whether a F ull meeting of the Board is not M ore desirable than to write to Messrs.

If...
Yesterday Mr Brindley, in company with a Mr Harris (Manager for the James River company, and sent by the Directors thereof for the former) left this on their way to Richmond: from whence Mr Brindley expected to be returned as far as Alexandria, by the 4th of next Month. I have engaged him to call upon Colo. Gilpin on his rout back. Mr Brindley and Mr Harris took the Great Falls in their way...
It is of so much consequence to the Company, that necessary and legal measures should be pursued to obtain Judgments againts its delenquent members at the ensuing General Court—now little more than five weeks distant—that I beg a moment may not be lost in complying with the requisition of Mr Lee for this purpose. In the mean time, if one of two things must take place which seem very likely—a...
I think your proposition is a very good one—If any question should come before the Board on wch you have not already given your opinion, it may as well be decided at the Falls as elsewhere; your going thither therefore, in the first instance, will certainly expedite the business which occasions (at least in part) the meeting. Indeed it wd seem now (for I do not recollect the cause which...
If nothing unforeseen happens, I can be at the Great Falls at any hour you & Colo. Fitzgerald will name, on Thursday next; ready to proceed from thence to the little Falls, if a vessel should be in readiness at the former. I am Dr Sir Yr Most Obt Servt ALS , PHi : Gilpin Papers. Four days later, on Wednesday, 24 Aug., GW again wrote Gilpin: “ On Saturday I informed you that I could be ready to...
As you were so obliging sometime ago as to offer me the use of your Scow to enable me to get mud from the bed of the River to try the efficacy of it as a manure; I would thank you, if it is convenient, for the lent of it next Week, & will send up for it on Monday, if you will let me know to what place, and of whom it is to be had. I will avail myself also of your kind offer of getting me a...
