George Washington Papers

To George Washington from John Gwinn, 14 March 1794

From John Gwinn

Annapolis [Md.], March 14th 1794


The division made by Hezh Veach, as referred to in the Deed to you from Colo. Mercer & others, was not transmitted to me for enrolment, owing, I imagine, to its having been omitted by Doct. Steuart, with whom the Deed was left.1

I shall take the liberty to inform the Doctor of its being referred to in the Deed, and of your wish to have it enrolled; and shou’d he furnish me with it, it shall be forwarded to you immediately after it is enrolled.2 I am, Sir, With great respect, your very Humble Servant

Jno. Gwinn
