George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Benjamin Lincoln, 20 April 1786

To Benjamin Lincoln

Mount Vernon Aprl 20th 1786

Dear Sir,

As Doctr Gordons departure for England is an event that was to have taken place about this time & may have happened I take the liberty, in that case, of requesting the favor of you to do what shall appear right with the inclosed Subscription Paper & Bill.1

I will make no apology for the trouble this request may give you as I persuade myself your inclination to serve the Doctr will keep pace with mine, and neither can have any other motive in the business than to serve & oblige him. With every sentiment of esteem & regard, I am—Dear Sir Yr most Obedt & Affecte Sert

Go: Washington
