George Mason to John Mason (January 10, 1791)

Gunston Hall, January 10, 1791.
DEAR JOHN:
As I presume you have left Bourdeaux before this time, and that this letter may probably find you in the south of France, I enclose you a copy of my letter of this date to Fenwick, Mason, and Company to save myself the trouble of repeating its contents separately to you. This leaves me little more to add except telling you that if the Washington sails in time, I shall send you, as you desire, letters of introduction to some of my friends in South Carolina, particularly to Col. William Washington, a gentleman for whom I have the greatest regard, and with whom you were too young to be acquainted when he went into the army. I have the pleasure to inform you that all your brothers and sisters are well, as is also the family at Gunston Hall. Mrs. Mason returns you many thanks for your acceptable present of the political fan, and gloves, and joins in our best wishes and respects to you, with, dear John, Your affectionate father,
G. MASON
