George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Robert Howe, 26 August 1783

Philadelphia 26th of August 1783

Dear Sir

I was honor’d with your Excellency’s Favor of the 24th Inst. late last Night.

That Part of Jackson’s Regt now here will march to-Morrow Eveg or next Day Morng—Vose’s shall follow as soon as Circumstances will admit—No Desire of unnecessarily detaining them, or remaining myself having the least Revalence in my Bosom.

I was strongly persuaded my former Letters would have met your Excellency at Princeton—it having been positively asserted that you were arrived there.

My Letters by Major [Morrison] I hope have before This Come To Hand. I have the Honor to be with every Sentiment of Respect & Esteem Sir your Excellency’s most obedient & very humble Servant

Robt Howe
