The letter with which you favored me on Wednesday was handed whilst I was at Dinner at Pages when it was not in my power to give it an acknowledgment. and this is the first day since, that I have had an occasion to send to Town. It is painful to me to be called upon to give an opinion upon a matter to which I feel myself incompetent—The first wish of my Soul is to spend the evening of my days...
Your letters of the 10th and 12th came duly to hand In answer to the latter—I have only to observe that, it would give me pleasure to endulge my Nephew George Washington in any attainment which could contribute to his improvement or innocent gratification were his funds, or my convenience adequate thereto. But as his Estate is either unproductive or the Produce incompetent to the payment of...
