Document, 1806 July 19
Abstract:
Peter Jay returned from Rye in better health than when he left. He will perhaps find the waters at Ballston Spa refreshing. Discussion of MariaÆs affairs and dealing with the estate of her late husband. Maria should only take John JayÆs advice on settling with other branches of the family as a hint; she will soon use her own discretion to decide her affairs. Is happy to hear Judge Taylor has been solicitous towards them; despite his differences in politics with John Jay he has always been friendly to the family. Has heard from Judge Cooper, who wishes Maria to stay in Albany and depend on his brother and son for assistance. Asks to be remembered to General Ten Broeck and to the Major. Concerned about AnnÆs eyes, fears trouble due to leading a too-sedentary life. Advises that the inventory requested by Mr. Henry is exact to avoid future difficulties. Believes Peter will visit them in Albany before returning to Bedford.
