George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Samuel Huntington, 15 June 1781

Philadelphia June 15. 1781


Your Excellency will receive enclosed, several Resolves of congress, viz., one of the 11th Instant & one of the 13th respecting the Officers in the Hospital & Medical Department, sundry Resolves of the 12th respecting the Convention Prisoners, to be halted for the present in Pennsylvania, the Depreciation to be settled in Behalf of Colonel Armands Legion; and earnestly recommending to the State of Pennsylvania to complete Moylands Legionary Corps to its full Compliment, and also immediately to raise three Troops of Militia Cavalry to serve three Months after they join the Army—the State of Maryland to raise in like Manner two Troops of Militia Horse to serve three Months. Also one Resolve of the 13th relating to the corps of Invalids which are to be stationed at West Point.

I have been honored with your Excellency’s several Dispatches of the 30th Ulto, 6th & 7th Instant, and forwarded your several Letters. Those for Virginia were sent by a confidential Express, as the Conveyance by the Post that Way is now become too precarious. I have the Honor to be, with the highest Regard Your Excellency’s Most obedient & most humble Servant

Sam. Huntington
