George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Richard Varick, 2 October 1783

Rocky Hill Octr 2d 1783.

Dear Sir,

Enclosed are my private Letters for registering.

As fast as they are entered, return them to me by the Weekly Mail; for we have occasion for frequent references. do the same thing with the Public Letters.

As the Letters which are hand[ed] to you now, contain Sentiments upon undecided points, it is, more than ever, necessary that there should be the strictest guard over them; and the most perfect silence with respect to their Contents. Mr Taylers prudence will, I perswade myself induce him to pay particular attention to both. I am—Dr Sir Yr Most Obedt Servt

Go: Washington
