Description
Hopes his cough is mended and that he has given over the thoughts of leaving Virginia; will get the deeds acknowledged without him; his horse in poor order from want of corn; if the [Virginia] Assembly will not rise before May will try to be down by that; his mother's term of years is out at Bridge Creek, she designs to settle a quarter [section] at Deep Run but waits until her right is made good; as to Mr. Spotswood's abandoning the ferry at his wharf and Major Taliaferro's petition to the Assembly to operate the same; urges reasons against same, terming petition unjust and iniquitous.
