George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Marinus Willett, 22 January 1782

Philadelphia Janry 22. 1782

Dear Sir

I yesterday received your Letter dated the 4th Inst.

The information you had received respecting an alteration in the Establishment of the Army, is without foundation—No door is open therefore to gratify the wishes of those not in actual service, however Meritorious they may be—of the zeal, attachment & ability you have always displayed in the service of your Country, especially in the last Campaign, no one can be more perfectly convinced than Dear Sir, Your Most Obedt Servant

Go: Washington
