From George Washington

28th. Jany. 1792.

My dear Sir

Enclosed is the rough draught of a letter to G.M.—I pray you to examine it, and alter any word, or sentence you may think too strong; or the whole of it, retaining my object; from which I shall make a fair copy and then take a press one: be not scrupulous therefore in making the alterations you judge necessary.—In the course of tomorrow I will send you the letter to be made up with your dispatches.—Yrs. sincerely,


RC (DLC). Entry in SJPL reads: “G.W.’s draught of letter to Gouvr. Morris corrected by Th:J.—[G.W.] to Th:J. inclosing it.”
