I have just received your letter of the 4th inst. and the 50 pounds sent by Mr A. Morton. Mr Wales accepted the order upon him, and says he will endeavour to pay it when it becomes due, but as the time of payment has not yet arrived I cannot say anything decided upon it. It is not in my power to send a person to meet you at Leesburg as the time which you mentioned to be there is already...
Your letter of yesterday was handed me by your Servant—I shall agreeable to your advice, Send to Mr Waless on Friday evening for the thirty pounds. I do not wish to have Lemert & Shover so far distressed as to break them up, but I should think they might find some method of paying a part, at least, of what they owe, or of securing the debt to me. If the Tenants do not comply with Covenants of...
I have received your letter of the 19th Inst. and Mr Lear has, agreeable to your request therein, called upon Messrs D. & I. McPherson & Wm Hunter Junr Esqr. who have informed him that the money shall be paid conformable to your advice. It would have suited me exceedingly well to have discharged my proportion of the assessment on the Potomack Company in the manner mentioned in your letter,...
Although it is my wish, & desire, that the Papers belonging to the deceased Colo. Fairfax was in the hands of his Executors, or in those of any other whom they may think proper to appoint to receive them—yet, prudence dictates to me the propriety of an order from them for their delivery. This, as I have never seen your power of Attorney—and as you decline sending your Waggon for them now, can,...
I have reed your letter of the 19th Ulto and, <in com>pliance with your request, have taken, from Colo. Fairfax’s <ledger a> Copy of Colo. Warner Washington’s Acct which is here enclos<ed. There is no> Acct in his Book with Mr Lee—neither father nor <Son>. I am very sorry that indisposition<, or any other cau>se should have prevented you from coming down <at the time> you proposed; for it is...
I have received your letter of the 7th Inst. together with your account, a List of my Tenants, and £8.19.4 in Cash. It was not my intention to have wounded your feelings by my last letter, as you say I did—I only meant to express my earnest desire to have a Rent Roll of my lands under your care, and not knowing the causes which prevented its being made out, I conceived that so long a delay of...
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 21 Feb. 1789. On 12 Mar. GW wrote to Muse : “I wrote to you on the 21st Ulto.”
Your Letters of the 16th and 25th Ullto are before me. The draft upon Mr Wales for £20 enclosed in the former was duly discharged by him. The order for one hundred barriels of flour enclosed in the letter is herewith returned—Altho’ the Cash, as any thing that could produce it, would be very acceptable to me at present, yet I am not so much in want of it as to sink 20 per Cent to obtain...
I have received your letters of the 17th & 21st Insts. the latter containing a Draft on Mr Josiah Watson for one hundred pounds, which he informs me shall be paid agreeably to the sight mentioned. I have no objection to the Gentlemen who are proposed to settle the line between Mr Scott and myself; and I think with you that the sooner it is done the better. When it is completed I would wish you...
In an overhaul, and arrangement of my papers, I have found an agreement (and Bond for the performance of it) with your father; by which he was to convey all the right, title, and interest which he had in a tract of 7276 acres of Land on the Great Kanhawa, to me. This, I beleive, was accordingly done; but it runs in my mind (though Colo. Pendleton undertook to see to the recording of it) that...
