George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Joseph Raymond, 30 April 1782

Hamshir Hutts April 30 1782


Nothing but a particular circumstance, could have induc’d me (at this unseasonable time of the year) to solicit a discharge from the Service; which is, that I am essentially injured with Respect to my Rank as an Officier, and which I find cannot be redress’d: I have been waiting a long time to see Colonel Tupper, but, as ‘tis not probable he will arrive here, ’till the commencement of the Campaign; must entreat your Excellency to grant my request; and am with Respect your Excellency’s most Humble Servant

Joseph Raymond Lieut.

10th Masstts Regiment
