George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Heman Swift, 6 May 1782

6 May 1782


I have this moment received your Letter of this morning—and am exceedingly obliged to you for your care in preventing the dangerous commotion which was threatned in your line.

I have now to desire that you will apply to Major General Heath to appoint a Court Martial for the immediate Trial of the two Serjeants who were the Ring leaders, and report their proceedings to me.
