It will be needless I presume, unless it be for Formsake, to tell you so long after the thing has happend, of my Marriage with Mrs Martha Custis; you doubtless have heard of it before this can reach you, but as I thought proof might be requisite I sent over the Ministers certificate (which I was told was sufficient testimony) to Messr Cary & Compa. and to that I also refer you for your further...
I shall draw upon you in a few days to the Amount of about £150 in two Setts of Exchange: the one payable to Messrs Champe and Hunter of Virginia and the other to Mr Richd Washington of London. I did not think it amiss to give you this earliest advice (via Whitehaven) of my Intentions but should not have doubted your Acceptance of my Bills without it as I in a former of the 12th June advertisd...

By my friend Mr Fairfax I take the oppertunity of acknowledging the receipt of your favour pr Captn Wa[l]ker & once since of later date by Captn Chew—I am very sorry for the Account (given in the latter) of the Deliverance being lost.

I have met with very bad luck in all the Tobo I...
