George Washington Papers

To George Washington from David Cobb, 7 May 1781

Boston May 7th 1781

My Dear Genll

Your Letter of the 21st ulto, I receiv’d, and cou’d wish to have immediately obey’d its summons; but the necessity of my private affairs still obliges me (tho painfull) to request your Excellency’s patience ’till the first of next month; your Excellency may depend on it, that nothing shall detain me ’till then, but what is of the utmost importance to my future wellfare.

I am, with the greatest respect & esteem Your Excellency’s most obedient Servant

David Cobb
