George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Carpenter Wharton or Jeremiah Wadsworth, 18 February 1777

To Carpenter Wharton or Jeremiah Wadsworth

Morristown, 18 February 1777. Encloses letters of recommendation for the commissary of the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment, Ephraim Blaine, who is “desirous of getting into the Commissary’s department: But as I do not choose to interfere in it, have sent him to you. If you want such a person, you will no doubt employ him.”

LS, in George Johnston’s writing, NN: Washington Collection.
