Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Washington, 26 June 1791

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,

Go: Washington
