Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Washington, 8 May 1791

From George Washington

Charleston, May 8th. 1791.


The round of business and of ceremony, which now engages my attention, only allows me leisure to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 10th. of last month, which will receive a more particular consideration.—I am, with great esteem, Sir, Your most obedient Servant,

Go: Washington

RC (DLC); in hand of William Jackson except for signature; endorsed by TJ as received at Albany 25 May 1791 and so recorded in SJL. In this TJ erred: he arrived at Albany only on the morning of the 26th, having lodged the previous night at Kinderhook, 20 miles below the city.
