George Mason to Robert Carter (September 16, 1791)

Gunston-Hall Sept. 16th. 1791.
D[EA]R SIR
I this Afternoon received, under Cover from Mr. Stoddert, your honour of the 25th of August. I am at present very unwell, from a late Fit of the Gout in my Stomach; and as soon as I am able to ride, am obliged to go to Richmond; so that I don't think I can appoint an earlier Day than the 24th of October; at which time, if it is conveient to the Parties to attend at Colchester, nothing but ill Health shall prevent my waiting on them; and of this I have informed Mr. Stoddert. I am, Dr Sir, your most obdt. Sert.
G MASON
