From George Washington
Mount Vernon, June 26. 1791.
The last post brought me your letter of the 20th. instant, and the duplicates of your letters, which were missing when I last wrote to you, the originals of which have since been received. This acknowledgement is all the notice I shall take of them until I have the pleasure of seeing you.
I have selected the letters written by you to me while you were in the administration of the government of this State, and I will take them with me to Philada.
The enclosed letters have been received since my return to Mount Vernon.—I am Sir, Your most obedient Servant,
RC (DLC); in Jackson’s hand, except for signature; endorsed by TJ as received 30 June 1791 and so recorded in SJL. Dft (DNA: RG 59, MLR); also in Jackson’s hand, unsigned. Tr (DNA: RG 59, SDC).
