From George Washington
Monday 31st. Jan [i.e. 31 Dec. 1792]
If you have not closed your letter to Mr: Pinckney I wish you would desire him to be very attentive to the embarkation of Troops for America—especially Quebec—and to give the earliest advice of the measure—and of the numbers. Yours &c.
RC (DLC); partially and incorrectly dated; addressed: “Mr. Jefferson”; endorsed by TJ as received 31 Dec. 1792. Recorded in SJPL.
TJ made the President’s request for intelligence about British troop movements the subject of a separate note instead of adding it to his letter of 30 Dec. 1792 (see TJ to Pinckney, 1 Jan. 1793).
