Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from George Washington, [4 April 1792]

From George Washington

Wednesday Morning [4 Apr. 1792]

Dear Sir

Am I right in understanding, as the result of the Conversation you had with Mr. White, that it was his opinion Genl. Morgan would serve under Officers superior to him in Rank in the Army about to be raised?-I want to get the appointments closed, but wish to know, previously, whether this was Mr. Whites opinion.-Yours sincerely,


RC (DLC); addressed: “Mr. Jeffer[son]”; endorsed by TJ as received 4 Apr. 1792 and recorded in SJPL where it is described as: “G. W. to Th: J. respecting Genl. Morgan.”
