From George Washington

Phila. Sept. 26th -87

My Dear Sir

The merits of Mr. Shippen, Son of Doctr. Shippen of this City, will be the best apology I can offer for introducing him to your attention and civilities whilst he is in Paris. He is a young Gentleman of Talents and improvement—these I am sure you love. I shall only add therefore how much and how sincerely I am Yours &c.,

G. Washington
