To George Washington from Michael Jackson, Sr., 16 March 1780

West Point March the 16 1780

Dear General

I find by Capt. Page the Subalterns Commissions of my Regiment which through mistake come rong—am very sorry to give Your Excellency any more Trouble, but I found it impossable to settle it any other way—could wish they might be forwarded, as soon as conveniant, as a Number of the Officers are Obliged to do duty Under their Ranks. I am Dear General with Esteem Your Excellencys Most Obident & very Humble Serveant

Michl Jackson
