From George Washington to William Livingston, 22 January 1782

Philadelphia Janry 22d 1782

Dear Sir

The enclosed Paper without signature, was a few days since put into my hands—As the information is not such as can be acted upon in a military way, I have thought it adviseable to transmit the same to your Excellency that any use you should think proper might be made of it. I have the honor to be.

N.B. Information respecting John Smith said to have come to Morris Town for the purpose of communicating intelligence to the Enemy.
