George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Henry Knox, 16 March 1782

Elizabeth Town 16 March 1782


We arrived here yesterday a few Minutes after twelve. The british Commissioners have not yet appeared. We learn that Letters have gone forward to your Excellency from the british General and Admiral. We shall set off from home this Day, and wait your farther orders in the Vicinity. Colo. Skinner will forward them.

We have the Honor to enclose an English Paper of the third of January, by which it would seem that Mr Laurens is liberated, in one Sense of the Word at least. We are told that another English Paper mentions his having Set off for Bath for the Recovery of his Health from whence he is to return to America. Should these Circumstances render any new Instructions necessary, we pray your Excellency to transmit them. We have the Honor to be your Excellencys most obedient humble Servants
