George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Alexander White, 23 November 1792

From Alexander White

[Philadelphia] Nov. 23d 1792.

A. White having received the enclosed from his Friend General Wood, could devise no method so effectual to inform the President of General Martins wishes and merits as by communicating the letter of General Wood.1


1The enclosed letter from James Wood, lieutenant governor of Virginia, to Virginia congressman White has not been identified. General Martin is probably Joseph Martin, a Revolutionary War veteran and former Indian agent for North Carolina, Virginia, and the United States who currently was a member of Virginia’s general assembly.
