George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Philip John Schuyler, 6 December 1782

Head Quarters 6th Decemr 1782

Dear Sir

I am happy to find by your favor of the 2d that Mrs Carter and Miss Schuyler are so far recovered as to be able to bear a removal to Albany.

Upon a supposition that you will procure a passport from Sir Guy Carleton, I shall lodge orders at the post of Dobbs’s Ferry to permit the Sloop to pass by. I shall expect you will drop Anchor before Newburg.

Be pleased to make Mrs Washingtons and my Compliments to Mrs Schuyler and the other Ladies. I am Dear Sir very sincerely Yours,

Go: Washington
