Stran 260 - Theodosia cannot hear you spoken of without an apparent melancholy ; insomuch that her nurse is obliged to exert her invention to divert her, and myself avoid to mention you in her presence.

Stran 234 - I have procured you a good house in Maiden-lane, at the rate of two hundred pounds a year. The rent to commence when the troops leave the city. Doctor Brown can inform you more particulars about it, as he went with me to view it. Before I engaged this house, I consulted Mrs. Clark. She proposed her house in Broadway, but could not get the tenant out, so that she gave her consent to this. Very respectfully yours, THOMAS BARTOW. « FROM MRS. BURR. Albany, 25th March, 1783.
Stran 116 - Disobedience of orders in not attacking the enemy on the 28th of June, agreeably to repeated instructions.
