George Washington to John Jay

West Point, August 15, 1779. Writes “that every thing in my power has been done to give success to the Western expedition.” States that “in the appeal which Genl. Sullivan has made to Congress that he has mistated several particulars of importance, and that in providing for his own justification in case of misfortune, he has left the matter upon such a footing as to place me in a delicate situation.”
