Letter not found: to Samuel Huntington, 28 Dec. 1789. In a letter to GW of 2 Jan. 1790 , Huntington referred to “your letter of the 28th Ulto.” It is possible that Huntington misread the date of GW’s letter to him of 23 Dec. 1789 as 28 December.
I have perused the Report & Proclamation which you were pleased to put into my hands for consideration; and think an alteration in the first, and a consequent one in the other, indispensably necessary; Because as the Report now stands, it is not broad enough to comprehend the several cases which exist—for the Troops of the Southern Army were furloughed by General Green, whilst those, which lay...
I have been honored with your favor of the 10th announcing your resignation of the Chair of Congress and the Election of Mr McKean to that important Station. I flattered myself with the hopes of an opportunity of personally acknowledging the attentions which I received from you during your presidency; but as I find you could not with convenience make a visit to the Army on your way home, I am...
I do myself the honor to inform your Excellency that the Army marched from their Camp near Peekskill on the morning of the 2d without either Tents or Baggage, and reached Valentines Hill about four miles on this side Kings bridge a little after day light the morning following.

Towards effecting the intended Operations of the ensuing Campaign, I had made a Requisition to the State of Pensylvania for a Number of Militia to join the Army under my immediate Comand—but that State having been called upon at the same Time by Congress for a Number of their Militia for the southern service, his Excellency the President has informed me that it will not be in their Power to...
I have the Honor to acknowlege the Receipt of your Excellency’s Favor of the 15th of this Month—with its several Enclosures. By Dispatches from the Count De Rochambeau, dated Providence the 15th instt—I am informed, that he would leave that Place on the 18th with the first Regiment of his Troops—and that the others would follow by Regiments on the next suceedg Days, untill the whole would be...
I had the Honor of your Excellencys Favr of the 6th instant, inclosing sundry Petitions, Complaints & Evidence against Colo.

I have been honored with your Excellency’s favors of the 2nd & 3d Inst. I had upon the former complaints exhibited against Colonel Brodhead; and Mr Duncan the Dep. Qr Mastr Genl at Fort Pitt, directed the proper measures to be taken for calling them to an account, and as the Complainants in the present instance, are principally the same as in the first, they will have an opportunity of...
I have been honored with your Excellencys favors of the 28h May, with their several inclosures. I have written to the board of War on the subject of the removal of the Convention troops, and have given it as my opinion, with my reasons, that they had best, for the present, be halted in Pennsylvania. An exchange of those troops, upon proper terms, would certainly be a desirable thing, but,...
