George Washington Papers

From George Washington to John Glover, 29 January 1781

New Windsor Jany 29th 1781

Dr Sir,

I could have wished as General Howe is about to make his journey (in consequence of leave formerly granted him) that you could have remained at the point till his, or General Pattersons return—but as this seems inconvenient, from a pressure of family matters, I yield my consent to your immediate departure thence, provided Genl Heath sees no particular inconvenience resulting from it at this time. I am Dr Sir Yr Most Obedt Serv.

G. Washington

Privately owned.
