To James Madison
[Philadelphia, 11 December 1790]
Let me entreat you to finish the good Offices you have begun for me, by giving short answers (as can be with propriety) to the enclosed addresses—I must have them ready by Monday.1
1. The enclosures, which have not been found, were undoubtedly advance copies of the formal replies of the House and the Senate to GW’s address of 8 Dec. 1790. For the text of these replies and GW’s brief response to each, see GW to the U.S. House of Representatives, 13 Dec. 1790, and GW to the U.S. Senate, 13 Dec. 1790.
