George Washington Papers

From George Washington to James McHenry, 5 May 1796

Dr Sir

Having but this moment returned from a Ride, I could not hand the enclosed to you sooner. As an expression therein stood, it might have embarrassed the Commissioner. What the Indians might deem a good price, & be well content to receive, he might judge inadequate; and thereby, so tied down, might mar the Negociation. To see that the business is conducted fairly, and with candour is enough. Yours &ca
