George Washington Papers

From George Washington to David Stuart, 25 June 1790

To David Stuart

New York June 25th 1790

Dear Sir

According to promise, you ought to have received the enclosed at an earlier period; but no inconvenience, I apprehend, will arise from my omitting to do it before now.1 Our best wishes attend you all and I am—Dear Sir Your Affecte Hble Servt

Go: Washington

ALS, ViHi.

1The enclosures were probably documents related to the suit brought by Robert Alexander against the estate of John Parke Custis that Stuart had sent to GW in his letter of 2 April 1790 (see Stuart to GW, 2 April 1790). In his reply to Stuart of 11 April 1790, GW wrote that “As this letter will have to travel to Williamsburgh, I shall take another opportunity to forward such original papers as you have transmitted to me” (see GW to Stuart, 11 April 1790).
