<br /> Lee Letter: b278

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Richard Henry Lee
Recipient: William Duer

Sir,

Your letter of the 10th. Inst. was this day received and laid before Congress – no immediate Order was taken upon it, if I may be permitted a conjecture, I would suppose that the enclosed resolve upon the subject of your letter was considered as the sense of Congress on that point – Should this not correspond with your idea, you will please to signify your opinion upon that point in a subsequent letter. I have the honor to be, Sir,

Your most obedient and very humble Servant.

Richard Henry Lee
