To Mrs Washingtonnear Frederickg
Honourd Madam

If it is in my power to avoid going to the Ohio again, I shall, but if the Command is press’d upon me by the genl voice of the Country, and offerd upon such terms as can’t be objected against, it woud reflect eternal dishonour upon me to refuse it; and that I am sure must, or ought, to give you greater cause of uneasiness than my going in an honourable Comd; for upon no other terms I will accept of it, if I do at all; at present I have no proposals, or any mention made abt it, only made to me nor have any advice of such an intention except from private hands. I am Dr Mm &c.
