George Washington Papers

From George Washington to John C. Cuyler, 30 June 1782

Schenectady June 30 1782


I sincerely thank you for your Congratulations on my arrival in this place.

Whilst I join in adoring that Supreme being to whom alone can be attributed the signal successes of our Arms.

May the same providence that has hitherto in so remarkable a manner Envinced the Justice of our Cause, lead us to a speedy and honorable peace—& may its attendant Blessings soon restore this, once flourishing Town to its former Prosperity.

*I cannot but express my gratitude to you, for so distinguished a testimony of your regard.
