The Inclosed came to my hands by the last Post. The Enemy have been very busy since their return from the Jerseys in Imbarking Troops—Nine Regiments are compleated to their full establishment by drafts from some others which are reduced, & these I am perswaded are destined for the West Indies—Whether the rest of the Troops will remain in New York—return to England—or go to Hallifax is yet...
Letter not found: to John Parke Custis, 18 Aug. 1777. When writing to GW on 11 Sept. , Custis says: “Your kind Favour of the 18th Ult. came safe to Hand.”
Inclosd we send the Accot Sales of thy 12 Hhds Tobacco ⅌ the Hanbury we assure thee that no care or endeavou⟨r⟩s of ours have been wanting to make the most thereof It gives us a real Concern that we are not favourd wth a larger part of thy Consignments we flatter ourselves that we can make as much of thy Crops as Carys or any other House if thee will give us the opportunity we will endeavour...
If you will accept a hasty letter in return for yours of last month I will devote a few moments for this purpose, and confine myself to an interesting point, or two. I do not suppose that so young a Senator—as you are—little versed in political disquisition can yet have much influence in a populous assembly; composed of Gentn of various talents and of different views—But it is in your power to...
Your Letter of the 11th Instt with a Deed to Mr Henry came safe by Mr Lund Washington—In lieu of the latter, I have executed a Deed to you, conveying all the right title and Interest which I, or any person claiming by, from, or under me can have to the Land. More than this cannot be expected, as I purchased the Land at your own desire; by the advice of your friends; and without intending, or...
I have now—at your request—given my full consent to the Sale of the Lands wch I hold in right of Dower in a Tract in the County of York—to a Water Grist Mill thereon—To Lotts in the City of Williamsburg—and others in James Town—As also to your Renting, or otherwise disposing, of the other Dower Lands & Slaves which I am possessed of in the County of King William upon the terms which have been...
I should have acknowledged the receipt of your letter of the 12th Ulto long since but for the many important matters which have claimed my attention. My letter which missed you on its passage to Williamsburg will acquaint you (as there is little doubt of its having got to hand long ’ere this) of the footing I proposed to put the valuation of the Cattle upon that you had of me —I only wished to...
Your Letter of the 15th Ulto from New Kent came to my hands by the last Post, and gave me the pleasure of hearing that you, Nelly, & the little ones were well. You should not delay recording my Deed to you, because you cannot, I am told, make a proper conveyance to Henry till this happens the postponing of it therefore may not be a pleasing circumstance to him. As you seemed so desirous of...
(On Saturday last I returned from a Conference held with the Count de Rochambeau at Weathersfield, and found Mrs Washington very unwell, as she had been for five or six days preceeding, & still continues)— Her complaint was in the stomach, billious, and now turned to a kind of jaundice, but she is better than she has been, though still weak & low. As she is very desirous of seeing you— and as...
Your Letter of the 7th came to my hands a few days ago, and brot with it the pleasing reflection of your still holding me in remembrance. The misfortune of short Inlistments, and an unhappy dependance upon Militia, have shewn their baneful Influence at every period, and almost upon every occasion, throughout the whole course of this War. at no time, nor upon no occasion were they ever more...
