George Washington Papers

From George Washington to James McHenry, 7 September 1796


Wednesday Morning 7 September 1796

Dear Sir

The principles of the Enclosed Instructions, & I approve; and since they are drawn, I shall not object to the Phraseology; tho’ considering that it is Addressed to our Agent, for his government part of them, I think is too much in the stile of a talk to the Indians. And I think too, as he is intended for the general Superintendent his attentions seems to be too much confined to the Creek Nation. Yours always—& sincerely

Go: Washington
