George Washington Papers

From George Washington to William Heath, 22 June 1782

Head Quarters Newburgh June 22d 1782

Dear sir

I have received your favors of yesterday & of this date by Major Lyman. I can have no objection to the assembling of the Officers of the Masstts Line for there obtaining, in a decent manner, the regular settlement of their Just dues, but am very sorry there should be any occasion for such proceedings; I supposed that Congress had passed Resolutions, directing the several States or Mr Morris to adjust all the Accounts of the Army up to the year 1782, and believe I mentioned that circumstance in a Letter to you last Winter; and had no doubt but a settlement had taken place accordingly.

It is very indifferent with me what Court Colo. Badlam is tryed by, so long as the truth of his proceedings are made known, I shall therefore leave it at your discretion. I am sir Your Most Obedient Humble Servant

Go: Washington
