Philadelphia Decr 25th 1781

My Lord

I have the pleasure of Your Lordships favor of the 13th. If the accounts which General Schuyler transmits be true, the Enemy have no occasion to boast of their Northern Campaign.

Should Your business call you to Prince town and you can make it convenient to extend your ride to Philadelphia, I shall be happy in seeing you.

Mrs Washington is better than I could have expected after the heavy loss she met with—Your kind condolance on the occasion adds to the esteem of Your Lordships most Ob[t] and hum: Servt

Go: Washington
