General Washington presents his compliments to Mr Howell and requests the favor of his company at dinner tomorrow 4 oclock. Monday. Privately owned.
Mrs Washington & myself heard with much pleasure from Major Jackson, that you & Mrs Morris had it in contemplation a visit to Prince Town; & we join very sincerely in offering you a Bed at our Quarters. The inconvenience of accepting it, can only be to yourselves, as the room is not so commodious as we could wish; but in the crowded situation of this place is equal perhaps to any you could...
You apply to me, My dear Madam, for absolution as tho’ I was your father Confessor; and as tho’ you had committed a crime, great in itself, yet of the venial class—You have reason good—for I find myself strangely disposed to be a very indulgent ghostly adviser on this occasion and, notwithstanding "you are the most offending Soul alive" (that is if it is a crime to write elegant Poetry) yet if...
I have been favored with your private letter of the 21st, & should have given it an acknowledgement sooner but thought a few days would have let me more into the views of Congress with respect to the Peace Establishment than I had any knowledge of at the time of its receipt—I am as much in the dark now as ever, and as unable to guess at the number of Troops which may be retained or raised for...
I enclose you the Copy of a Letter from Captn Segond in behalf of himself & Lieut. 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...
I send you herewith the Estimate and requisition of Pay for the Writers employed under Colo. Varick’s direction, and hope he will be enabled, by the time they have completed their Work, to make a settlement with them. I have the honour to be Sir &c. DLC : Papers of George Washington.
I have received your Letter of the 18th, also the duplicate inclosed in yours of the 24th. If the Articles should not have been forwarded you will be informed by the Superintendant of Finance, that the immediate necessity of incurring the expence of transportation has ceased to exist, I am however pleased with your exertions on this, as well as former occasions. The reasons you have given for...
I consider the War Office to be the proper channel of Application for the redress of any hardships under which you and Lieut. Boulieu may labour, from the peculiarity of your circumstances. I have therefore referred your Letter to the Honourable the Secretary at War, with a request, if he should not have it in his power to give adequate relief, that he would lay your case before Congress and...
I have received your favor of the 26th and am much obliged by your attention in procuring the Articles I had requested—I am also glad to find there is at length a prospect that the British will in reality soon take their departure from the United States. Whatever my private sentiments as an Individual may be, respecting the violent Policy which seems in some instances to be adopted; it is not...
I have the honor to enclose for the information of Congress, the report of the Baron Steuben, who was sent into Canada to make arrangements with General Haldimand for withdrawing the British forces from the Posts within the territory of the United States. The Letter from General Haldimand to me, referred to in his Letter of the 13th inst. to the Baron, is not yet come to hand. The...
