My last by Mr Danl McPherson, would inform you, why I did not write more fully by that opportunity. and my attendance since on the Business of the Potomack Company at the Great Falls, is the reason of the delay, in doing it untill now. Your letters of the 10th Decr & of the 12th 17th & 18th of last Month are before me, & Such parts of them, as have not been answered, & appear to require it,...
I have Just received your letter of the 20th of last Month, & only request that you will proceed as you have begun; that is, to do equal & impartial Justice to the Tennants, & myself, I want no improper advantage of them on the one hand—On the other, where leases are clearly forfeited by a manifest intention on the part of the Tennant to neglect all the Covenants in them, that were inserted...
Letter not found: to Battaile Muse, 6 May 1786. On 4 June Muse wrote GW : “Your Favour dated the 6th may Came To hand.” Muse’s letter of 4 June appears to be in response to GW’s letter of 12 May which in turn was GW’s response to Muse’s letter of 6 May ; Muse may have meant to cite GW’s letter of 12 May rather than a missing letter of 6 May .
I have received your letter of the 6th instt but not inclining to take your surplus wheat, on purchase, will order it to be ground & packed, subject to your order—As you did not direct what kind of flour it should be made into—it will be fine only—unless you should in time direct otherwise. I lost very considerably by the delay of your wheat—In the first of the Manufactury of it I had a brisk...
I did not receive your Letter of the 4th of June seasonably enough to return an Answer so soon as you may have expected. I cannot inform you with any precision what the flour made of the 500 bushels of wheat sent to my mill is worth, as I am informed that flour has risen to the Northward, and the short crops of wheat this season will undoubtedly have a great effect upon the price of it. I...
I want to change my seed wheat, but do not incline to sow any but of the white kind, I shall be ready to commence my seeding in a few days and if you have of this kind, ready, either of this, or the last year and will receive payment for it out of your collection of my Rents, I should be glad to have sent me from one to three or four hundred Bushels.—I will give the Alexandria price at this...
Not till within these two days did your letter of the 11th of last Month get to my hands. I have sent your advertisement to the Printer and as soon as the number of copies are struck they shall be forwarded to you. My former letter containing my sentiments respecting the flour at my mill, I have done nothing in it since rather wishing that you would pursue your own judgment with respect to the...
As the fifty Bushels of Wheat stands as an article of charge at 5/6 in your account against me, it may remain so as a final settlement of the matter—Although I have no flour at present for sale and have made no enquiry into the price of this article, I do not suppose I shall either loose or gain much in so small a quantity by fixing the Wheat at this price. With respect to the persons named in...
Having an immediate occasion for a sum of money, it would be very acceptable to me to receive what is in your hands of mine. An order on any person in this place, that would be punctually complied with, will suit me. I am Sir yr Very Hble Servt ALS , NcD : Battaile Muse Papers.
It would seem by your letter of the 3d instt that you had not received my last; in which I desired that whatever money you had, or could command of mine, might be sent to me; or an order drawn on some responsible person in Alexandria; as I was much in want of it. This request I now repeat, as I have, since that time been disappointed of other sums wch I thought myself sure of receiving. &...
