George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Anthony Whitting, 13 January 1792 [letter not found]

Letter not found: from Anthony Whitting, 13 Jan. 1792. In his letter to GW of 15–16 Jan. 1792, Whitting stated: “In a Letter wrote on Friday last I informed your Excellency of the Loss of your letter by Dogue run Will.”1

1As GW’s lost letter, which was subsequently found, was dated 8 Jan. 1792, Anthony Whitting’s letter to GW explaining the circumstances of its having been lost must have been dated Friday, 13 Jan. 1792.
