George Mason to John Fitzgerald (September 7, 1784)

Gunston-Hall Septr. 7th. 1784
D[EA]R SIR
The four Hhd's Tobo. you mentioned paying me for Mr. Robt. Adam, in your favour of the 3oth of Augt. having been legally inspected, I presume will suit Mr. Rutland, &come within the meaning of my contract with him, as well as if they had remained in the Public Warehouse. I will mention it, the first time I see him, & let you know.
What you say of expecting the Warehouse Rent being repaid, if it relates only to the public Warehouse charges, which you have paid, is unobjectionable; but if it relates to the Rent of the private Warehouse, where the Tobo. is now stored, or any other incidental charges; it wou'd be clear Loss to me of so much; as any other legal Tobo. will equally answer my purpose. I am Dr. Sir Yr. most obdt. Sert.
G MASON
