The President and Mrs W——Compliments and thanks to Mr Morris for his politeness. They have nothing to charge Mr Morris with but their affectionate regards for Mrs Morris and the family; and to wish him a pleasanter journey than the state of the Roads promise, and a safe return to this City when his business in Philadelphia shall be accomplished. AL , PWacD : Sol Feinstone Collection, on...
Major Jackson having communicated the result of his conversation with you to General Stewart, the General was so obliging as to write the enclosed letter on the subject of giving you possession —and I was induced by his determination to give Mr Lear some directions relative to the removal of the furniture from New York. But that no unnecessary delay may be sustained in completing the repairs...
Your letter of the 21th of April was not received until yesterday morning — none of later date than the 15th of that month overtook me on the road to Savannah, and orders were dispatched for all to be returned to this place after I left the post-road—This will account for the late reception of yours. The very favorable character given of Mr Wolcott before his appointment to the office of...
This letter will be presented to you by Mr Jno. Augo. Spotswood, Son of General Spotswood. The enclosure, communicates the ideas of the father, and the wishes of the Son as fully as it is in my power to make them known to you; and when compared with the former letters from Genl Spotswood to me, which you have seen, leaves nothing more for me to add on this subject than to say that your good...
The enclosed is, at Mr Powells request, returned to you; with my thanks for the perusal. I take the liberty (and for the reason therein mentioned) to lay before you General Spotswoods letter to me respecting his Son—assuring you at the sametime that it is for the sole purpose of complying with his request it is done—& not that I wish, in the smallest degree to urge the request further than it...
As I have other unproductive landed property in the Western Country besides that which you seem disposed to become the purchaser of—and some also in Virginia, which, in my opinion, promises the richest future harvest of anything of the kind I have contemplated. I offer the whole to you upon the terms mentioned in the enclosed paper. Were my prospects different from what they really are, not...
If any land, of which I am possessed on the Ohio River, is thought an eligable site for a town; and those who wish to see one established thereon, and, at the sametime, are disposed to promote the measure; will come forward with some digested plan, in writing, for my consideration, no unfounded objections will, I am persuaded, be made on my part. I take the liberty of making this communication...
The motives which give birth to this letter, proceed as much from private friendship, as they do from a sense of public duty; whatever therefore may be the effect produced by it I presume on your excuse for the trouble it will give you. The letter herewith enclosed from Mr Scott (one of the Commissioners of the Fedl City) was met by me on my way to George Town, with another from Colo. Deakins...
I can add nothing, in support of the extract on the other side, that was not contained in a former letter from me to you; on the same subject. But I would thank you for letting me know what answer I shall return to the Commissioners of the Federal city. Their credit, I know, has been stretched to its utmost limits, in order to keep the wheels moving; even in the slow, and unprofitable manner...
