This letter discusses some business dealing with land and involves the government and lawyers. It seems Lawrence Washington had asked him for any information he had and his opinion on the people involved. Towards the end of the letter he discusses his state of mind--happy and surrounded by friends--but admits he does think about his time in the Northern Neck area. Some of the handwriting is hard to decipher. The General has six more years left to live and you can tell he is thinking about the "old days." This letter is a copy of the original owned by Russell Crow who graciously made a duplicate for Richard W. Hungerford Jr. in February of 2017.
