I received your letter I received in due time your favour of August 24, the subject of which has since been under the deliberation of both houses. The act which has been the result of their attention to the petitions of New Port Providence and other towns, will appear to you probably before this letter. Whether it will, in all respects be conformable to your wishes, I am not able to say: but...
Your Letter of the 16th. I recd only by the Post of last Wednesday.—I am really much affected at the obstinate Infatuation of so great Part of the People of Rhode Island. It is inconceivable how men of common Sense can reconcile such a Conduct to their Understandings men of common Honesty, to their Consciences; or men of human Feelings, to their Hearts. Do the Antis of Rhode Island expect that...
Treasury Department, March 8, 1791. “In answer to your Enquiry, I am to inform you that the Contract for the Supply of Articles in the Quarter Masters Department was made with Messrs.

Your letter of the 28th. of March came to hand yesterday. I regret much every embarassment which is experienced by the Mercantile Body—whether arising from the public operations, from accidental and unavoidable causes, or from a spirit of enterprise beyond the Capital which is to support it.

Inclos’d you have a Letter from Robert Morris Esqe Chairman of the secret Committee of Congress containing an Order for fourteen Musketts. The great necessity we are under for Arms, and your known attachment to the Cause will I doubt not stimulate you to forward them with all possible Expedition. I am Gentlemen Your most obedient humble Servant LS , in William Palfrey’s writing, RPJCB ....
I had, a few days ago, the pleasure of receiving yours of the 9th instant. The Butt of Wine has not yet arrived, but I doubt not, when it does, that it will answer your recommendation. Permit me to return you my thanks for the generosity of your present, and to express my wishes, that Fortune may continue to be as indulgent to you as she has hitherto been. I am &c. Df , in Tench Tilghman’s...
I would thank you for informing me, when it is convenient to you, whether a Deed of Conveyance from George Muse to me for 3323 Acres part of a large tract of 7276 Acres lying on the Great Kanhawa is fully proved, and admitted to record. and if not, what steps are necessary for me to pursue to effectuate it. In the first case I should be glad to receive the Deed—In the Second your advice will...
Although the deed of bargain and sale from Muse, dated in 1774, conveys all the right he had to lands in the patent for 7276 acres—yet as there must have been some inducement to take the subsequent deeds in 1784 I am inclined, though unable to account for them, to have them fully recorded—especially as the quantity of land thereby conveyed differs pretty considerably⟨.⟩ I am Sir, your most...
