Being in Richmond last week Mr P. Lyons jur, who does business for John Hopkins, Esqr. put into my hands for the President U:S. some public paper which had been funded by you some considerable time ago. He has requested of the Prest a rect which was given you at the time, for the Certificates; & the President, supposing it must be in your possession, directs me to desire you will forward it to...
I am very sensible of the kindness of the Common-hall and citizens of Fredericksburg in the invitation which you are so good as to communicate to partake of a dinner which will be given to Gen l La Fayette in that place. my affection for him and my respect for the Common hall and citizens of Fredericksburg would render a compliance equally a duty and gratification. but age & debility put this...
It is with a great deal of pain that I have found myself under a necessity of having suits brought against two persons so nearly connected with yourself and Mrs. Lewis as your son Robert and Capt. S. Woodson. You know that I was left burthened with a great debt for Mr. Wayles’s estate, and in scuffling to pay what I could of that, I suffered my own accounts to accumulate. My attornies found it...
On conversing with Capt. Mullins the day I left your house I found that you had greatly miscalculated the amount of the interest on the price of my land. Supposing, as he told me, it would be upwards of £400, when in fact it will be only but £56–5 sterling or £75 currency. The paiments accomodated to your situation would be as follows in sterling money. £ 1st. paiment  625 £ 2d in 1791. 75...
Mr. Myers duly delivered your letter of the 8th. conveying to me the invitation of the Joint Committee of the Common Hall & Citizens of Fredericksburg to be with them at a dinner to be given to General La Fayette. Uniting with the Common Hall & Citizens in all their grateful sentiments towards General La Fayette, it would afford me much pleasure to unite also, in the proposed festive...
Your letter of the 23d Ulto has been received. Mr Airesss draught on Mr Russell (of Alexandria) has been presented, & accepted, payable in ten days. I am glad to hear of your good luck, with the eloped tenant in Berkeley county. Recovery of the Tenement is of more importance, than the security of the Rents. I am not disposed to lease it for more than Seven years, and if you could let it for a...
Your letter of the 7th instant came duly to hand, but being received with many other letters, it was laid by, and entirely forgotten, until I came across it yesterday again. Mr Ariss’s draught on Mr James Russell for £42 pounds shall be presented to him, but if he is indisposed to pay it, or wants time to do it, he has a good pretext for delay, as you have sent it without your Endorsement,...
Your letter of the 17th Ult. came duly to hand—but the pressure of business in which I am always involved whilst Congress are in Session, has prevented my acknowledging the receipt of it at an earlier date. and now, I may not be so full as you might wish; but shall touch upon the several points of your letter, and in the order they stand there. If the tenants are not punctual in the discharge...
I do by these presents give, and (if Deeds of Conveyance should not have been made before) hereby oblige my heirs, Executors and Administrators to fulfil, all the Lands which I hold on Deep run, or its branches in the County of Fauquier unto my Nephew Robert Lewis and to his heirs or Assigns forever. Given under my hand and Seal this 13th day of August 1796 Privately owned.
Enclosed are copies of letters written to you agreeably to their dates. They are sent on the possibility that the originals may have miscarried, although the probability, I hope is much against it. In a late letter to Mr Whiting, at Mount Vernon, I have directed him not to sell the Stud horse, but to deliver him to your order. The sooner you send for him the better. Your Aunt unites with me in...
