George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Amelia Leigh Lloyd, 4 September 1782

Head Qrs Verplanks point 4th Septr 1782.


A mind susceptible of disappointments, and pained by suspence, can readily enter into the feelings of others, under similar circumstances—Be assured then[,] that your Letters shall suffer no delay—no disappointment in my hands. Nor will I keep you one moment in suspence, with respect to the receipt, or delivery of them.

Actuated by these motives, I have the honor to inform you, that the last Post brought me your favor of the 20th ulto, & that the packet for Mr White has passed my lines, for New York.

I pray you to be assured, that nothing which can contribute to the happiness of Mrs Lloyd, will be deemed a trouble, by her most hble & obedient servant

G. Washington

P.S. Be so good as to present me to Mr Lloyd & let him know that his Letters to Major Murray, and Mr Watson went in, some days ago.
