To George Washington from Henry Knox, 16 February 1789

From Henry Knox

New York 16th February 1789.

My dear Sir

The cloths have not yet arrived although expected by the first wind.1 The moment they come to hand I will forward those for you and Mrs Washington by the stage.

It appears by the returns of elections hitherto obtained which is as far as Maryland southward that your Excellency has every vote for President, and Mr John Adams 28 for Vice President exclusively of New Jersey and Delaware whose votes for Vice are not Known. I am My Dear Sir Your affectionate

H. Knox
