George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Benjamin Lincoln, 30 October 1783


Princeton Octr 30 1783

My dear General

My late aid and Assistant Major Jackson is quitting public life and is going to Europe with commercial views.

I think him a youth of great honor abilities & integrity and feel myself much interested in his future happiness—I have therefore to request from your Excellency a letter in his favor to some friend in England or france & a certificate purporting his services in the field & that he has served in the war office in both has discharged his duty with dignity & honor. Yours most affectionately

B. Lincoln
