George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Henry Clinton, 4 September 1780

New York September 4th 1780.


I have received the honor of your Letter of the 26th Ultimo, and but for General Phillips’s Indisposition, which made the proposed Meeting uncertain, I should have sent my Reply earlier.

General Phillips hopes his Health will permit him to be at Elizabeth Town on the 19th Instant, where my Commissary of Prisoners shall attend; and at the same time the Propositions which I think necessary to offer respecting a Resident Commissary will be transmitted. I have the honor to be, your Excellency’s, Most obedient and Most humble Servant.

H. Clinton
