Letter not found: to Robert Morris, 14 Oct. 1787. On 25 Oct. Morris acknowledged “the receipt of your obliging letter of the 14th Inst.”
When your favor of the 23d Ult. was sent here from the Post Office, I was at Fredericksburg (to which place I had been called, suddenly, by Express) to bid, as I was prepared to expect, the last adieu to an honoured parent, and an affectionate Sister whose watchful attention to my Mother during her illness had brought to deaths door. The latter I hope is now out of danger, but the former...
I heard to day, with great pleasure, that Mrs Morris & you intended to Princeton; and would be here at the time of the Public Audience which is to be given to the Dutch Minister. I pray you to be assured, that you could make no Family more happy, than you would do mine, by lodging under their roof—and that nothing in my power shall be wanting, to make Mrs Morris’s time pass as agreeably as...
Enclosed is your Warrant on Mr Hilligas, endorsed—I thank you for the trouble you have taken to negotiate the matter with Govr Clinton, & have the honor to be with all possible regard, Dr Sir Your Most obedt & affecte Servant LB , DLC:GW . See GW to Morris, 4 Jan., n.1 , George Clinton to GW, 27 Feb. , and James Milligan to GW, 9 Mar., n.3 . Michael Hillegas (1729–1804) was United States...
I have the satisfaction to congratulate you on the near approach of the evacuation of New York, the enclosed Copy of a Letter from Sir Guy Carleton will give you all the information I am possessed of on the subject. Knowing, as I do, the embarrassed state of our Finances, I should at this time not have troubled you with the representation of the Officers now in service, had not a sense of...
A brother of mine (Father to Mr Bushrod Washington, who studied Law under Mr Wilson) is desireous of entering his other Son in the commercial line; the inclination of the young Gentleman also points to this walk of life—he is turned of twenty—has just finished a regular education—possesses, I am told (for he is a stranger to me) good natural abilities—an amiable disposition, & an uncommon...
By the charming Polly Capt. Ellwood I forward you a perfect model of the plough which was sent to me by Mr Young with the direction of that Gentleman for setting it for use, from the character I have received of its performance surpasses any that has ever been tried before, on my Farms. I also send you a part of the summer wheat with which Mr Young has furnished me as springing from seed sent...
The account we have frequently received (from one body and another) of Mrs Morris & your coming to Princeton, kept Mrs Washington & myself in continual expectation of that pleasure. A desire of having the Paymaster General present while you were here, induced his stay at this place several days longer than he intended; and when the business at the army would no longer allow his absence from...
Your favor of the 15th did not reach my hands ’till the 27th. I will delay no time in communicating the contents of Mr Constable’s letter to my brother; but as he lives at the distance of near an hundred miles from me, & out of the Post road, it may be some time before I can obtain his answer. This being the case, as it may be some disadvantage to Mr Constable to be held in suspence—& as the...
I pray you to receive my thanks for your favor of the 5th and for the obliging attention which you have given to the Flour matting from China. The latter is not yet arrived at the Port of Alexandria nor is the navigation of the River at this time open for the Passage of any Vessel—while the frost has much the appearance of encreasing and continuing. In every wish that can contribute to the...
