I have received two letters from you at Barbadoes, & three from Burmuda. The last informing me of your intention to embark for Charleston, which I much approve of. I have not wrote to you since you left Mount Vernon, first because I did not know where to direct to you & next because I was on the Western waters when your first letters from Burmuda came to this place. My best wishes however have...
Letter not found: to George Augustine Washington, 8 Dec. 1784. On 25 Feb. 1785 George Augustine wrote to GW : “I received with inexpressible pleasure Your two friendly Letters of the 26th of Novr, and 8th of Decr.”
As soon as I got your letter announcing your intention of spending the Winter at Charleston I wrote you by Post, under cover to Colo. Willm Washington—& sometime after by Mr Laurens—by whom also I forwarded the articles of clothing you desired might be sent to you—there can be little doubt (as the Post now goes regularly) of both getting to hand. I need not therefore repeat any part of the...
Letter not found: to George Augustine Washington, 24 Dec. 1785. On 3 Feb. 1786 George Augustine Washington acknowledged receipt of “Your favor of the 24th Decr.”
The extreme heaviness of the roads occasioned by the late rains, and gullied situation, prevented my getting further than this place yesterday. and now I am waiting a while for a cessation of rain, rather than to take Joe out in it. It did not occur to me when I was making out my Memorandum for you, that the cause which prevented Morris from proceeding in his field for experiments, might not...
Giles bringing the enclosed from Alexandria & presuming it was on the business he was sent about, I opened it before I discovered the mistake. Endeavor among other things you were to have enquired after, to engage me some Pompion (Pumpkin) seed. and ask if a good kind of sweet Potatoe seed can be had in case I should not be able to get enough in this part of the Country to plant an Acre of...
It is natural for young married people, who are launching into life, to look forward to a permanent establishment. If they are prudent, they will be reasonably sollicitous to provide for those who come after, & have a right to look to them for support. It is also natural for those who have passed the meridian of life, & are descending into the shades of darkness, to make arrangements for the...
After short stages and easy driving, I reached this City on Sunday afternoon. Only 4 states—viz. Virginia, South Carolina, New York and the one we are in, are as yet, represented; which is highly vexatious to those who are idly, & expensively spending their time here. I hope the fine rains which have watered this part of the Country were not confined to it; or rather, that the Clouds which...
In my last I acknowledged the receipt of your first letter; and I have now to do that of the 20th instt. And once for all I will desire that you will not let your anxiety to carry on my business well, or fatigue in the accomplishment of it, go too far. This would not serve me, and may injure yourself. By attempting too much you may get sick, and do nothing effectual for me or yourself. It gave...
I am sorry to find by your letter of the 28th Ulto that you have had a return of your old complaint —my last caution’d you against too great exertions, & I now repeat it; because there is no occasion for it. To direct the Overseers how to apply the labour to advantage, is all that can be expected. To see to the execution, except in a ki⟨nd⟩ of rotine, is impracticable—moderate exercise will...
