Your letter of the 5 inst: with its enclosures was received yesterday forenoon. Agreeably to your direction I waited on Mrs Dubarry in the afternoon, shewed her Major Lewis’ letter, and paid her the $100 which it covered, as you will see by her rect now enclosed. I thought it best (& she did not object to it) to take her rect in full—the Interest, if Mr Lewis thinks proper to allow it, can be...
I reached this place on the thursday morning after I left you, & found Mr Kitt & the family well, & every thing as far as I have yet seen in good order. He has not finished his accounts for my examination; I presume however I shall have them today. I fear they will be high, as the sum remaining in Mr Wolcotts hands (with whom I settled yesterday) amounted only to about 26$. The Letters wch you...
My last to you was I believe dated at Shippensburg in Pennsylvania on the morng succeeding its date, I bent my course towards Virga & crossing the Potomac at Wmport I passed through Winchester, & along up the Shenandoah, & thro Orange County to Charlottsville & from thence to Staunton, in the neighbourhood of which I rested a few days.

Painful as it is to me (& I assure you it is truly so) to trouble you with anything which relates to myself, knowing as I do that your time is now scarcely adequate to the discharge of the duties & avocations which are attached to your station; yet I conceive myself so forcibly impelled by several reasons (for which I beg to refer you to my letter on this subject in July last, and to which...
Mr Lewis A. Pauly, who will present this to you, having some propositions of a public nature to make, which relate to the military establishments of the United States & which will most probably come to your consideration, I take the liberty of informing you, in his behalf, that I have known him for several years as a respectable & honest man in my neighbourhood. Mr Pauly came into this...
I have for a long time intended to forward to you the present inclosed Deed for the Gloucester land, & must beg pardon for my neglect in omitting it. I have, for a year past, monthly expected to be able to make you some payments on account of Doctr D. Stuart, & have still been disappointed. The most positive promises have been made that I shall receive some considerable sums at the meeting of...
I cannot help saying that I am sorry to be obliged sometimes to trespass on the little time that you have to spare from attending to the many cares which your public & private affairs must ingage you in; but I will not aggravate my trespass by a tedious apology. Being about to remove some distance from where I now live, & being possessed of the wives & children of Frederic & George two of the...
I take this moment to inform you that I have just recorded a Deed of the Land in Gloucester, to you, agreeable to the price offered in your Letter on that subject; to wit £800.
