I am sorry I was not at home yesterday, to have complied with your request, in sending a translation of the Chevalier’s letter by Mrs Washington. You will now recieve one of that, and of Crajenschot’s —Monsr Perrin, to whom I shewed Dasmonts letter, tells me, that the Brother enquired after by them, passed thro’ town about a month ago—He took a minute of the Contents, to transmit, or take...
I send you translations of two letters only—the third written by a Merchant, is so full of the abbreviations in use by the Gentlemen of that Profession, that I can only make it out, here & there —And from what I have been able to make out in this manner, I imagine, you will not consider a translation very necessary—It begins with informing you, of his having been persuaded by his brother to...
It was my misfortune soon after my arrival here, to be confined for several days by sickness; occasioned by lodging in a house newly built, whose walls were perfectly damp—I mention this circumstance by way of accounting, for my not having written to you as yet, and given you some account of our proceedings—Tho’ indeed so little is yet done, that I can now only inform you of what is proposed...
I yesterday made the contract you desired me, for oats, with Mr Savage, at two and six-pence the bushel, as you will see by the inclosed, which I send you. This Gentleman was employed by Mr Dandridge, to rescue Mr Custis’s estate on the Eastern shore, from Posey’s hands; and having befriended it in a particular manner without recompence; I early in the Summer sollicited a continuance of his...
As nothing could be transacted in a more favourable manner for the estate; than the way in which your account is settled, it must always be infinitely obliged to you—I assure you I am perfectly satisfyed —with great regard I am, Dr Sir Your Obt Servt ALS , DLC:GW . What prompted this letter is not known. In March 1786 GW settled his account with the estate of John Parke Custis by acknowledging...
It gives me much pleasure to inform you, of the very auspicious manner, in which the serious entrance on business this Session, has been marked—Tho’ it is not much short of a month now, since our meeting, no business of importance was introduced ’till the last week—You will learn the issue of this, from the inclosed vote—The strong language in which this off spring of iniquity is condemned,...
I am informed by Mr Pendelton one of the Auditors, that it is unnecessary to lay your claims before the legislature—that by the law lately revived, they will be paid in Certificates, when passed by the Court of Fairfax. I therefore send them up to you, that you may have this done at the next Court—After which, you will be pleased to forward them on, again to me—You will see Pendletons advise...
The daily expectation I have been in of meeting with some one bound for Alexa. who could take charge of the nutmegs you requested me to purchase, has been the occasion of my not writing for some time past—To have trusted them to the Stage unprotected, would from my experience have been unsafe. As I have not been so lucky as to meet with such an opportunity, notwithstanding frequent enquiries...
I acknowledge my omission in not informing you, in my first letters of the passing of an act in conformity to the petition from the Potomac directors. I informed Col. Fitzgerald of it immediately, and supposed I had done the same in my letters to you—It was among the first things done —Since my last, nothing material has happened here, except that the bill establishing district Courts is...
I shall take steps immediately for discharging your taxes on the best terms—I have written to Mr Henley to dispose of the tobacco directly—From some conversation the other day with Mr Wilson, I expect Certificates and indents may be had as cheap from him, as in Richd—I shall know this tomorrow: and if they cannot, I shall write to Mr Donald in Richmond for them. With respect to Peter, it will...
