From Elizabeth Foote Washington

Hay-Feild [Va.] Dec. 23d 1793.

Dear Sir

Your letter of the 9th covering Doctor Tates opinion came duly to hand1—Mr Washington acknowledges himself very much oblig’d to you for the part you have taken in this business, & highly approves of your sending him forword immediately—he has anxiously look’d for him on every Stage day Since, but as yet has seen nothing of him, he begs if he has not yet left Philadelphia for the purpose of coming to Virginia you will urge him to as speedy departure for that purpose as is possible—Mr Washington is much in the same situation as he has been for some length of time past, except we think he sees less & less every day almost, indeed it may be said he cannot see any thing more than the light, mr Washington joins in most respectful compliments to Mrs Washington & her children, & believe us dear Sir to be yours most affectionately

Eliza. Washington

ALS, ViMtvL.
