He is well informed of the relative interests of the two Countries, and of our sincere desire to cultivate and strengthen the friendship and good correspondence between us; and from a knowledge of his fidelity, probity and...
I do not write to you often, because I have no business to write upon; because all the News I could communicate is contained in the Papers which I forward every week; because I conceive it unnecessary to repeat the assurances of sincere regard & friendship I have always professed for you—or the disposition I feel to render every Service in my power to you and yours—and lastly because I...
I have received by Colonel Gunn your honors letters of the 11th and 15th of March, and the enclosures therein contained respecting the conduct of Joseph Martin Esqr. late agent of the United States to the Cherokee and Chickasaw nations of Indians. It appears by the Resolve of Congress of the 19th of June 1788 that the said Joseph Martin was appointed an agent for the Cherokee nation of Indians...
I hasten to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated the 7th instant, but which did not get to my hands until yesterday; and to express to you, the sincere pleasure I feel in finding that I had interpreted some parts of your letters erroneously. As you have the best, and most unequivocal evidence the case is susceptible of, that I have no other object in view by extending my cares and...
(Private) Dear Sir, Philadelphia Mar. 31st 1794. Your favor of the 20th instt, with its enclosures, came duly to hand; and for which you have my particular thanks. As there are those who affect to believe that Great Britain has no hostile intention towards this Country, it is not surprizing that there should be found among them characters who pronounce the Speech of Lord Dorchester to the...
Herewith you will receive Plats, and descriptions of two tracts of land which I hold in Kentucky, on the Waters of rough Creek. If you have any knowledge of the land in the part of the country these are said to lye in: or if your brother John or any other, within your reach has, I shd be obliged to you for such information respecting them as can be obtained. I wish also to know in what part of...
To the enclosed, I answered in a note, that the whole of the business to which it related, was entrusted to you: from whom, if application was made, complete information might be obtained.

I answered as before, and added that...
A pressure of public business just at the moment Mr Roberdeau was about to leave this, allowed me no time to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 28th Ulto—and now I have little more than to thank you for the communication which was given by it.

(Private) Dear Sir, Philadelphia 27th Novr 1793 Not having the letters at hand, I am unable to refer to dates; but the one with which you were pleased to favour me, dated sometime in September, did not reach my hands before I had left this City.

Your letter of the 28th instt was received yesterday. The enclosures which accompanied it, evidence much discretion; and your conduct therein meets my entire approbation.

I am not certain whether I have written to you since my receipt of your letter of the first instant; for as my private letters are generally dispatched in a hurry, & copies not often taken, I have nothing to resort to, to refresh my memory: be this however as it may, we are always glad to hear from you, though we do not wish that letter writing should interfere with your more useful and...
The best, indeed the only excuse I can make for having so long delayed complying with the request of your favor written the 7th of March—is, that when it came to hand (which was not speedily after its date) the business of the session pressed so heavily on me, that I had but little leisure for other attentions; and by laying it by, to be taken up at a more–convenient moment, it in a jumble...
Your favor of the 17th instt has been duly received. My enquiries after your health have been constant—and my concern for the ill-state of it—has been sincere. I beg you will not suffer the business, in which I am jointly interested, give you a moments concern; for I can assure you it has never occupied a thought of mine. But in order to make the transacting of it as easy to yourself, and as...
(Private) Dear Sir, Mount Vernon Sep. 21st 1792 Your letter of the 4th Instt came duly to hand, but previous to the receipt of it I had been under the necessity of giving the Secy of the Treasury some direction for the Commd of the Revenue Cutter of Maryland, I am not less obliged however by the trouble you have been at to obtain the information you gave me on this point. I would thank you for...

Yesterday’s mail brought me your letter of the 12th instant, and under cover of this letter you will receive a ten-dollar bill, to purchase a gown, &c., if proper. But as the classes may be distinguished by a different insignia, I advise you not to provide these without first obtaining the approbation of your tutors; otherwise you may be distinguished more by folly, than by the dress. It...
General Lee (who went from hence on wednesday last) informed me that you intended being here, so soon as you should hear of my return from Philadelphia: of this event, he, probably, may have informed you; but not that I shall set out for the latter place (with my family) towards the latter end of next week. If you mean therefore to favor us with a visit, it must be before that time as my...
I have received your letter of the 29th of April, and must beg you to accept of my best thanks for your kind gratulations and good wishes.

Tuesday’s Post brought me a letter from a Mr Andrew Parks of Fredericksburgh, covering one from your mother; both on the subject of overtures of marriage made by the former to your cousin Harriot Washington: which, it seems, depend upon my consent for consummatn. My sister speaks of Mr Parks as a sober, discreet man; and one who is attentive to business. Mr Parks says of himself, that his...

I have therefore to request that you will stop all measures, which you may have taken, or may be about to take relative to the settling or otherwise...
Two of the unhappy female fugitives from St Domingo have (as you will see by the enclosed letters) laid their distresses before me; which, if true in the degree they have stated, merits much commiseration. But I have received so many applications of a similar nature, and some of them from Imposters, that I find it necessary to guard what little relief I am able to afford, against impos⟨i⟩tion....

He will accordingly take his leave of you; embracing that occasion to assure you of our Friendship and sincere desire to preserve and strengthen the harmony and good understanding so happily subsisting between the...

My desire to see you, is such, that I request that you and Mr Festal, will make me a visit about the first of April at this City; by that time the Weather will be settled, the roads good, and the travelling pleasant.

Your letter of the 22d inst., as also one of the first, have been duly received. The affectionate sentiments contained in them, are highly pleasing to me.

Hence, I draw the most agreeable presages, that you will reward my cares & anxieties to see you a...
