I intended to have written to you on the subject of the enclosed letter, from the Federal City, but by dining in a large company at Mr Laws (the day I parted with you) and examining the public buildings afterwards, I was prevented: and letters from the Secretary of State which I met on the Road, and which required my attention yesterday afternoon I was again prevented from doing it in time for...
A week rarely passes without bringing me a letter of similar contents with the enclosed. As a common centre I am addressed by all those who know not where else to apply. Altho’ it is apart from my public duties, and I have very little leizure for private occupations yet I have never failed (either by myself or some other) to make a response to the request which has been received. This must be...
Your letter of the 14th instant ⟨ca⟩me to hand in due course of Post, and ⟨w⟩ould have received an earlier acknowledgment had I not been pressed with other business.

I received your favor of the 3d instant a few days ago. If there be any specific agreement, in writing , between Mr Whiting and the occupant of my Lot in Alexandria, I must abide by it, however erroneous the measure; provided it shall appear that the tenant has, or is in a way & condition to comply with his part of the contract. If no such written agreement can be exhibited, I shall not think...
The day preceeding my departure from Mount Vernon, the enclosed letter was put into my hands. pressed as I was at the time by other business, I could give it no answer; & the next day when I saw you in Alexandria this matter had escaped me. I give you the trouble, therefore (since you have allowed me the liberty) to fix something with mister Moore on the subject of it. whatever that may be...
Your favor of the 25 ultimo came duly to hand. Presuming that my letter to you of the 28th of April had either miscarried, or that you were employed in the investigation of the Shanandoah (of which I recollected some mention had been made). And having occasion to write to Colo. Hooe on other business I mentioned to him the flour I had for sale; and have, since, accepted the offer he made me...
