George Washington Papers

From George Washington to John Cochran, 18 June 1782

Head Quarters 18th June 82


It appears to me that Keeping up an Hospital at Boston is a very needless expence to the Public —the only pretext that could be offered for it was the Corps of Invalids being there, that Corps being now removed and no Continental Troops remaining or likely to be there I see nothing to prevent the Hospitals being broke up immediately and I desire you to take measures accordingly.
