George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Billy Porter, 22 April 1781

Westpoint April 22d 1781

This may Certify Capt. Benjn Warren of 7th Massts Regt.

Having domestic Affairs that calls him to leave The service, that I apprehend it more to his injury To continue in service than it will be to the service To have him leave it; & that I know of no public accounts he has unsettled in the regimt would therefore on his solicitation recommend Him for a Discharge from the service.
