George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Benjamin Lincoln, 1 March 1783

War Office March 1. 1783

Dear General,

I have the honor to inclose the arrangement of the Virginia line—I suppose it to be right—Your Excellencys approbation of it is however necessary before it can be recorded in this Office—if you approve it the arrangement may remain with you as I have a Copy of it.

I wish your Excellency’s opinion on the subject soon—as the Officers are applying for their subsistance.

The materials for turning the Clothes will be sent on immediately—we have not red Cloth enough, but the Taylors may begin with what we have and the Remainder shall be forwarded.

The Standards are in the hands of the Quarter Master at Camp and have been there for some time. I have the honor to be with the highest esteem Your Excellency’s obed. Servant
