George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Oliver Wolcott, Jr., 23 July 1796

Philadelphia July 23d 1796


I have had the honour to recieve your favours dated July 13th 18th & 20th and shall punctually obey your directions.

The money mentioned by Judge Addison was paid to me; in addition to the advances requested by Mr. Kitt I have paid Captain Tingey for freight of Wine £66.13.4 Currency or Dollars 177. 77/100—the duties have not yet been demanded—I shall pay Mr. McEuen as soon as I can see him.

I know of nothing to communicate to the President which he will not receive from other quarters. the public mind appears to be generally tranquil & satisfied.

I wrote a private Letter dated about the 9th or 11th instant, but as I kept no copy, I may be mistaken—the Letter was on two sheets of paper & contained an acknowledgement of your Letters of the 4th & 6th instant—I mention this merely that it may be known whether it went safely. I have the honour to be with perfect respect Sir, your most obedt servant
