Description
They have received his letter by Mr. Bland, and readily accept the trust reposed in them for selling and conveying his houses and lots in Williamsburg; cannot determine the price as property is selling beyond its real value; Dr. McClurg and others wish to buy the houses; it is advisable to dispose of them at public sale, advertising a proper time in the Gazette; this cannot be done till Spring for it would inconvenience Dr. Digges to give up his house sooner, as he has laid in his winter fuel; they ask Carter to set a value on his property that it may not be sold for less, and as much more as paper-money getters will give.
