United-States January 4th 1790
Whenever there shall be a sufficient number of the two Houses of Congress assembled to proceed to business, I request to be informed of it. And also at what time and place it will be convenient for Congress that I should meet them, in order to make some oral communications at the commencement of their Session—
I have the honor to be / Sir / your most humble Servant
Signed) G. Washington
