Letter, to Burgess Ball, 1790 December 19

 Item — Box: 5, Folder: 1790.12.19
Identifier: RM-186; MS-2573

Scope and Contents

Impossible to arrange an exchange of property with Ball, who wishes to have land held by George Washington in Berkeley County. Not possible because property leased to tenants and value greater than Ball believes it to be. Would be willing to work an exchange, however, for some of his land west of the Alleghany River.
