Gray Skipwith, Camp near Brighton to Sir Peyton Skipwith, Mecklenburgh, 1794 June 26

 Item — Box: 18, Folder: 14
Identifier: id242577

Scope and Contents

I am sending you the heads of a deed of conveyance of the estate of Sir Thomas Skipwith. Thank you for your generous offers which will enable me to discharge the greatest part of my debts. I am sure Sir Thomas Skipwith intended that the nearest branches of your family should enjoy his estate after the death of his Lady. A company in the Warwickshire militia has been given me. This causes me to be in camp. I have not yet taken my degree at College. It seems that the event of this war may neither be advantageous or very honorable to the English. They gained a victory over the French.
