I beg Leave to introduce to you M r: Thaxter, and to recommend him to your Benevolence— If very hard Services constitute Merit he has it in great Perfection— When I was received in Holland it would have been natural for me to have recommended him to Congress for the Secretary to that Legation, But M r: Dumas had been long there. and had behaved well— As M r: Thaxter came out with me, when I...
AL (draft): Library of Congress; incomplete press copy of LS : American Philosophical Society I have received your Favour of the 30th of September, for which I thank you.

Herewith I give you the trouble of receiving the account of my expenditures in Philadelphia, & on my journey home. If I recollect right, Colo. Cobb told me this was the mode you had suggested to him, as proper for my proceeding in this matter.

I return you the Generals letter on the Subject of his nephew. Tho’ a troublesome Charge to have the Care of a young man of Twenty distant from his parents, from the Character drawn of Mr Washington and from his Desire to learn Business I will take him as Apprentice. I presume he will not serve longer than Three years, less will not suffice the fee One Hundred Guineas. Rather than the young...
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...

The merits of this case will no doubt appear upon trial; but from Mr Dalby’s state of the matter, it should...
