George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Malachi Treat, 14 December 1778

From Malachi Treat

Letter not found: from Malachi Treat, 14 Dec. 1778. On 19 Jan. 1779, GW wrote to Treat: “I recd yours dated 14th but the month not mentioned.” With the exception of urgent messages delivered by express riders, most letters sent to GW from Albany took over a week to arrive, so Treat probably wrote his letter on 14 Dec. rather than 14 January.
