From George Washington to Benjamin Lincoln, 4 June 1782

4 June 1782

Dear Sir

General Hazen in the same Letter which acquaints me of the Designation of Capt. Asgill of the Guards for the purpose of Retaliation, also informs that there are two persons in our power at York & Winchester, who come under my first Description—I have therefore immediately given him the inclosed Orders, which you will see, & which I beg you will cause to be conveyed to him. If Lieut. Turner or any other Officer in Consequence of these Orders should be sent on to Phila. you will be pleased to direct that he be conveyed under proper Escort to the Jersey Line, which is the place destined for the Execution.
