From Henry Lee, Jr.

New York 12h Aug. 1786

dear Genl

Since writing my last I have an opportunity of sending the small box given to me by Mr Gardoqui for you under care of Mr Wilson of Petersburgh by the stage, to be delivered to Mr C. Lee. I prefer this conveyance to the one intended, & now enclose the letter which accompanyed the box.1 It is probable that the China will leave New York for Norfolk next week. I am most respectfully Yours

Henry Lee Junr


1See Gardoqui to GW, 12 June, n.1. This was the attorney Charles Lee in Alexandria. Wilson has not been identified.
