George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Abraham Ten Broeck, 27 June 1782

Albany 27th June 1782.


Your congratulation on my arrival in this City I receive with pleasure & gratitude.

If in attempting to discharge those duties which every good Citizen owes to his Country, I have been so fortunate as to merit your approbation, & the good wishes & benedictions of the Ancient & Respectable City of Albany, it will contribute not a little to my happiness.

I accept the freedom of the City with thankfulness, & shall retain a just sense of the honor done me by it.

Go: Washington
