George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Sir James Jay, 9 April 1780

Head Qrs Morristown Apl 9th 1780.

Dear Sir,

The liquid with which you were so obliging as to furnish me for the purpose of private correspondence is exhausted; and as I have found it very useful, I take the liberty to request you will favour me with a further supply. I have still a sufficiency of the materials for the counterparts on hand. Should you not have by you the necessary ingredients, if they are to be procured at any of the Hospitals within your reach, I would wish you to apply for them in my name. I hope you will excuse the trouble I give you on this occasion. With great regard, I am, Dr Sir, Yr Most obed Servt,

Go. Washington.

PS. If you shd not be able to prepare the liquid in time for the bearer to bring, [please]be so good as to commit it to the care of Colo Hay please forward it to me.
