George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Henry Knox, 15 January 1783

Newburgh 15th Jany 1783.

My dear Sir,

When the Party arrived yesterday with the Sleigh, I was engaged with Mr Howell—before I was at liberty they had left this—This is my apology for not writing to you yesterday.

I have now to thank you for the Sleigh, which I think very handsome—convenient—& well executed. Shall I thank you for giving the Master Workman a couple of Guineas, to be laid out in liquor for those who have been engaged in this business?

Mrs Washington joins in Compliments to Mrs Knox—and I am with much truth and affection Dr Sir Yr Most Obedt Servt

Go: Washington
