Letter not found: from William Augustine Washington, 23 April 1798. The letter, to which GW refers on 26 June 1798 , was advertised in 1904 in George H. Richmond’s catalog, item 330. The quotation from the letter in the catalog is printed in GW to William Augustine Washington, 5 April 1798, n.2 .
Letter not found: from Oliver Evans, 26 April. On 14 June GW wrote to Evans : “Your last was dated the 26th of April.”
This letter will be presented to You By Mr Forster whose father, The Celebrated professor and Captain Cooke’s fellow traveller Has Requested In Behalf of His Son these Recommandatory Lines—I am sure His Name Was to You a Sufficient Introduction—and in His personal merit there is also a Sufficient inducement to wish for his wellfare—Yet I should be Highly pleased to Hope that My Recommandation...
I, unfortunately lost one of my working Steers a few days since, and having none to match the one left, and a large quantity of manure yet to haul out on my Corn hills, I applied to Mr Stewart to know if there were any on your River Farm that had not been, and would not be used this year, that would be likely to match mine. He informed me there were a number of that description; but that he...
Your favor of the 22d with the enclosures I recieved. I do not altogether approve of the deeds, and principally for the reasons which you give. I think that the deed from you to General Lee ought to state the cause of it’s being made, by reciting that a deed for the same land had been executed by Lee to you, but the time for recording it having expired, and for the purpose of enabling Lee to...
I wrote to Cornelius the day after I was last at Mount Vernon; but have not yet recd any answer from him. When I last saw him he was about removing from Loudon [to] Berkley, which may have prevented his receiving my letter. I think it uncertain, however, whether he would incline to go so far from his family for a long job, as he is now about to make a new fixture, and has several Children...
I just now receive the letter Your Excellency has had the condescindency to write to me. I am happy to find Your Excellency has forgotten the words I thought I ought to complain of. I will make bold to follow so noble an example. But I must respectfully entreat leave of Your Excellency who does not perceive what has been the object of my letter to observe that the letter of the Magistrate of...
Letter not found: from Foster & May, 30 April 1798. On 7 May GW wrote Foster & May : “Your letter of the 30th ulto” was received.
The repeated confirmations of Congress & the late progress of the public buildings in the City give the greatest hopes, that the important object will be attained in 1800—an example alone is wanting to encourage private buildings. Pardon the liberty I take in suggesting to you how much your building one house at this Crisis would ensure the rapid rise of the City by doing away doubts—The...
Colonel Fitzgerald arrived here about an hour ago and has politely offered to convey a letter to you. Nothing material has occurred since my last letter only that we now attend College at six in the morning which is by no means disagreable, and conduces to health. With respect to what I mentioned of Mr Carroll in my last I had no other foundation but report which has been since contradicted....
