Being perfectly of the same sentiment with you respecting the Invalids now at Philadelphia I have given directions to Baron Steuben to have them Inspected immediately in order that no time may be lost in carrying into execution the measures you Recommend I am &c. DLC : Papers of George Washington.
I return you the Subsistence Roll of the Officers of the Hospital Department. Dr Craik having retired does not I dare say expect to be continued on the list—As to the rest it is impossible for me to judge of the necessity of their services—some of them might doubtless be dispensed with—I will write immediately to the Director General on the Subject and transmit you his Answer so soon as I...
As the Gentlemen who are now remaining of my family, propose to honor me with their Company to my Ho. in Virginia & will of course need a little of their Pay, you would oblige both them & me, if you could devise a method by which three or four Months of it could be obtained. I am Dr Sir Yr Most Obed. & Affe Servt DLC : Papers of George Washington.
I am favored with your Letter of yesterday respecting Mr Taulman of the Sappers & Miners. I am not able to give any possitive opinion whether or not that Gentleman is entitled to the Commission he sollicits—the very small number of Men in the Corps renderd it not necessary to fill any Vacancies in the Officers—his claim therefore, must rest on what has been the practice in the Corps in Similar...

I beg you to be assured that I shall have pleasure in shewing him every civility in my power while he makes this region the place of his residence—as I shall to any other, to whom you may give letters recommendatory.

Your favour of the 4th of Jany never reached me till yesterday, or the receipt of it should have had an earlier acknowledgement. Let me in the first place thank you for your kind attention to my enquiries. And in the next, pray you to learn, precisely from Mr Lear, upon what terms he would come to me; for I am not inclined to leave matters of this sort to after discussion, or misconception....
The violent rains, and consequent freshes, have given such interruption to the Stages in this part of the world, as to prevent your favor of the 15th Ulto getting to my hands till Saturday last. I accede to the sum of Two hundred Dollars in addition to the stipulations mentioned in my last, as compensation for Mr Lear’s Services a year; and shall be glad to receive him into my family as soon...
As Doctr Gordons departure for England is an event that was to have taken place about this time & may have happened I take the liberty, in that case, of requesting the favor of you to do what shall appear right with the inclosed Subscription Paper & Bill. I will make no apology for the trouble this request may give you as I persuade myself your inclination to serve the Doctr will keep pace...
Inclosed is a copy of my last to you, soon after writing which I heard of Doctr Gordon’s sailing. Not knowing who his Agent is, I again take the liberty of putting under this cover, the second Bill of exchange for him; & the original subscription paper on which the eleven pounds arose as part of the Bill (just mentioned) for forty two pounds which was the amount of both the Alexandria &...
I have, I think, seen your name mentioned as President of the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Massachusetts. For this reason I give you the trouble of the enclosed address. I hope your wishes were fully accomplished in your Eastern trip. Are your people getting mad? are we to have the goodly fabrick that eight years were spent in rearing, pulled over our heads? What is the cause of...
