George Washington Papers

From George Washington to James Wilson, 22 March 1782

Phila. March 22d 1782

Dear Sir,

Necessity obliges me to give you my promissary Note instead of the deposit of a hundred Guineas—I will take it up as soon as I can.

Permit me to recommend my Nephew to you—not only as a student requiring your instruction—but to your attentions as a friend. His youth and inexperience may require it, and I persuade myself his sensibility & gratitude will make you every return which may be in his power.

If the funds, which his Father has provided for him, should fail, & he stand in need of money, I will see any sum which can be borrowed for his use repaid with Interest. With much truth—I am—Dr Sir Yr Most Obed.

Go: Washington
