Mrs. Washington, Bushfield
My dear Fanny - Mount Vernon August the 7th 1784
Tho' I have never been alone since you left this, - yet I cannot say but I have missed your company very much - The General is still determined to set out the first of next month, over the mountains 1 I have not heard anything from my Brother, 2 whether he will be up before the General goes or not I expect to come down to see him sometime in September - I shall not fix the time till I hear from you or him -
Mrs Stuart is getting better 3 your stays and other things came from Annapolis the Sunday after you left this - I have payed Mrs Charles Stuart4 the money she payed, the mantua maker: £ 3.2.6 I will keep them or bring down as you think you may want them - I think Miss Ramsay5 was married before you left this - we have nothing new that I hear off.
Remember me to all Friends with you, the General had a letter from your pappa 8 by the last post that never mentioned you or any other person. The letter was dated at Richmond I should have been glad to have heard where you was -
I am my dear Fanny your most affectionate
