By a letter which I have lately received from my nephew, Major Washington of Mount Vernon, I find you have made a tender of your services to him to overlook one of my farms, and have referred me to Colo. Cadwalader, now in Congress, for your qualifications and character. This enquiry I have made, and the result of it is that you have a competent knowledge in the business of agriculture, and...
From the last letter I have received from my nephew the Major, I presume he is, ’ere this, on his tour to Berkeley; I shall therefore, during his absence, address my letters on matters which relate to my concerns at Mount Vernon, to you. And do request that the weekly reports may be transmitted to me as usual—with such other accounts of your progress in sowing &ca; prospects (with respect to...
Letter not found: to Anthony Whitting, 26 Aug. 1791. In writing to Anthony Whitting on Monday, 29 Aug., GW referred to his letter to Whitting of “friday last.”
In a letter which I wrote to you on friday last, I acknowledged the receipt of yours of the 22d, and informed you that I should again write as on this day, by the Post, who would also be the bearer of the materials for the Bolting Chest. The latter is accordingly sent, directed to the care of the Post Master in Alexandria, and hope it will be in time for the Work of Mr Ball. In my last, I...
Your letter of the 29th of last month came duly to hand, with the report of the preceeding week, and I am sorry to find by them that the weather had become dry again, but as we have had some fine rain here in the course of last week —as it is now raining, and has been doing so near twelve hours—and has all the appearances of a general rain, I hope in your next to hear, that you have...
Letter not found: to Anthony Whitting, 8 Jan. 1792. GW wrote Bushrod Washington on 8 Jan. 1792 : “Mr Whiting . . . is directed in a letter of this date, to wait upon Colo. Little.” Whitting himself alluded to the missing letter in his letters to GW of 15 and 22 January.
Letter not found: to Anthony Whitting, 15 Jan. 1792. In a letter to Whitting of 16 Jan. 1792 GW referred to “My letter, of yesterdays date.”
My letter, of yesterdays date, was closed, and sent to the Post Office, before it occurred to me, to enquire, whether you have taken advantage of the present frost, to store the House with Ice. Do not neglect to have it well filled, and well pounded, as it is filling. Ice, put in whilst the weather is intensely cold, keeps better than that which is taken up in more moderate weather—and still...
Your letter of the 24th Ulto came duly to hand, and I am glad to find by it that you have had some rains though not as much as has fallen in these parts—and that your Crops are deriving the benefit of them. If the Corn is standing, & alive, I do not, on account of its backwardness, despair of a Crop; if you are able to keep it clean, & the ground well pulverised; which I hope will be the case....
Your letter of the 29th Ulto came to my hands yesterday —and this answer to it will be in Alexandria on Friday; &, more than probable, will reach you before Monday. As you think it will be best to sow Lucern alone, in the Inclosure by the Stable; I am content that it should be so; and will send, or bring some seed, in aid of what you have, to stock it w⟨e⟩ll. The Brick yard Inclosure I would...
