To Thomas Jefferson from George Washington, 18 January 1792

From George Washington

Wednesday 18th. Jany. 1792

Dear Sir

The conduct of Majr. L’Enfant and those employed under him, astonishes me beyond measure!—and something more than even appears, must be meant by them—When you are at leisure I should be glad to have a further conversation with you on this subject.—Yrs. sincerely & affectionately,

Go: Washington
