You must give me leave to return you the inclosed, as I have laid aside the distressing trade of receiving money for serving my friends. the pleasure of doing them an acceptable office is the richest reward which can be conferred on me, and I never think them ungenerous but when they decline giving me an opportunity of proving this. the late occasion too was peculiarly sacred. the packet to...
I am sorry to be told here that you are sick in Philadelphia. I had hoped to have had the pleasure of seeing you. You have heard probably of the vote of the H. of Delegates at the last session of assembly. I came here in consequence of it, and found neither accuser nor accusation. They have acknowledged by an express vote that the former one was founded on rumours only, for which no foundation...
I received your kind letter of the 7th inst. I have long intended myself the pleasure of visiting you, but fortune has as long been contriving obstacles to it. The appointment with which you inform me I am honoured will oblige me to stay pretty closely at home for some time to get my affairs into such a state as that they may be left. It at the same time perhaps offers me an opportunity of...
I was much disappointed at not meeting with you here for many reasons: one or two of them I will explain to you. my partners in the salt pans having been unable to send for them in due time, the gentleman who had contracted with us to carry on the business chose to decline it. this prevented our sending at all: & considering our great distance from the Salt-waters, they seem now disposed to...

You must do me the favour to accept of it from me. The following are the observations which I would trouble you to make and transmit to me. The temperature of the cave at different distances from the mouth. The temperature of your ice house....
This will be handed you by a Mr. Strickland, an English gentleman who is passing through our country to see what is remarkeable in it. He is a person of great information, worth and respectability, and merits and will justify all the civilities and attentions we can shew him in his passage through it. As his object will be best answered by a communication with gentlemen of the best information...
I wrote you about the 10th of Nov. from Philada. by Colo. Bland who was going directly to Richmond. By him I sent you a thermometer. I hope you received it safely. I am anxious to hear whether you did and whether you have been able to make those trials with it to which the Queries in my letter asked answers. You will probably have heard that Fox and North are out of the British ministry. We...
Having been unable to get waggons to set off hitherto for our pans and the day on which we were to send for them, approaching, I thought myself bound to send express with the money to answer my engagement. The bearer I hope will be with you on the 1st. day of March which if I recollect was the ultimate day I required. He will deliver you one hundred and eighty pounds, the price of two pans...
