Newburgh May 5th 1782

Sir

I should have done myself the honor of sending the Letter here with inclosed, earlier, but having no Cypher established with your Excellency I was afraid to entrust it to the care of a common Express—It now goes by Baron Closen & I trust will get safe to your hands.

I shall again repeat, that with much consideration, & great personal attachmt I have the honor to be Yr Excellency’s Most Obet Hble Ser

G. W—n

AAE.
