George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Oliver Wolcott, Jr., 29 July 1796

Mount Vernon 29th July 1796

Dear Sir,

Your letter of the 23d instant came to me by the last Post; and the letter therein alluded to, dated the 11th, was received in due course. The receipt of which I as certainly acknowledged, whatever may have become of it; but having kept no copy thereof, I am unable to repeat the contents. Sure I am, because I remember well, that an acknowledgment was given by the Post after it was received.

I am glad the freight of my Wine to, and from India has been paid to Captn Tingey; and whenever the duties are demanded I pray they may be paid also, if you have means of mine in your hands sufficient thereto. I am always and sincerely Your affectionate

Go: Washington
