From George Washington to Robert Morris, 11 October 1780

Pasaic Falls 11th Oct. 1780

Dear Sir,

I am happy to inform you, that the business to which I am indebted for your favor of the 28th Ulto, was effected previous to the receipt of your letter. Mr Elliot had applied thro’ Mr Izard, for Captn Mure’s parole, which was immediately granted, and orders given to the Commissary of Prisoners to signify the same to him. I make no doubt therefore, but that he is, by this time, either in New York or up on his way thither.

It will ever give me pleasure to contribute to the comfort or convenience of any Gentleman in whose behalf you interest yourself, when I can do it with propriety—on other terms I am convinced you wd not ask it. I am with Complimts to Mrs Morris Dear Sir Yr Most Obedt Servt

Go: Washington
