George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Israel Putnam, 5 July 1780

Head Quarters 5th July 1780

Dr Sir

I am very happy to learn from your letter of the 29th handed me by Captain Humphry’s that the present state of your health is so flattering, and that it promises you the prospect of being in a condition to make a visit to your old associates sometime this campaign. I wish it were in my power to congratulate you upon a complete recovery. I should feel a sincere satisfaction on such account, and hope for it heartily with the rest of your friends in this quarter. I am Dr Sir &c.
