From George Washington to George Clinton, 15 December 1783

Philada 15th Decr 1783

My dear Sir,

It was with exceeding great concern I heard by Mr Gouvr Morris that you had had a return of your Fever—I hope it was slight, and that you are now perfectly restored to health—No man wishes it more sincerely than I do.

I have been able to negotiate a matter with Mr Robt Morris by which about Seventeen hundred pounds York Currency will be thrown into your hands on my Acct which sum, when received, I pray you to carry to the credit of my Bond.

I am within a few Minutes of setting off for Virginia—passing thro’ Annapolis—where I shall stay two or three days only—My very best wishes always attend Mrs Clinton & your family—and with much respect, and sincere affection I am Dr Sir Yr Most Obedt Servt

Go: Washington
