Dear Sir,

The Coachmaker who have furnished me with the enclosed Card have done work for me and having executed it well—and promising to work as cheap [as] any others in the City, I do their request, recommend them, that if you, or any of your friends should have occasion for Carriages you may if you think proper apply to them. with affectionate regard I am &c.

G. Washington

LB, DLC:GW.

The addressee probably is GW’s cousin William Washington of Sandy Hill, South Carolina. For GW’s dealings with the carriage maker, see GW to Samuel Powel, 25 July 1787, n.1.
