George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Jean-Louis-Ambroise, chevalier de Villefranche de Genton, 3 December 1782

3 December 1782

From the Testimony of Major Generals-Heath Howe-McDougall and Knox under whose orders Major Villefranche has served, it appears that in the various services in which he has been constantly employed he has shewn such Zeal Activity and Knowledge of his profession as to entitle him to their highest approbation.

During great part of the time above mentiond Major Villefranche has served in the Army under my immediate Command and it affords me great pleasure to give this Testimony of my entire satisfaction at every part of his conduct that has fallen under my notice which has been such as justly entitles him to the Character of a Brave, deserving Officer.
