George Washington Papers

From George Washington to James McHenry, 10 December 1783

Philadelphia, Dec’r 10th, 1783

Dear Sir,

After seeing the backs of the British Forces turned upon us, and the Executive of the State of New York put into the peaceable possession of their Capitol, I set out for this place. On Monday next I expect to leave the City, and by slow traveling arrive at Baltimore on Wednesday, where I will spend one day and then proceed to Annapolis and get translated into a private Citizen. I am y’r Affect’e

Go. Washington
