George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Benjamin Lincoln, 31 August 1783

Rocky Hill Augst 31 1783

Boulieu, the only remaining Officers of Pulaski’s Legion—if the peculiar circumstances of those Gentlemen, are such as will exclude them from emoluments to which they ought to be intitled in common with other officers, and if it shall not be in your power to give adequate relief, I must request you will be pleased to lay their case before Congress & take the orders of that Honble Body on the subject—I judged this the proper channel of application & have referred Capt. Segond to you accordingly; informing him at the same time that he must be under a mistake as to the obligations of his Parole, from which I conceived him to be wholly & absolutely liberated—I have the honor to be &c.
