<br /> Lee Letter: n118

Washington and Lee University

Sender: George Washington
Recipient: Thomas Sim Lee


Since I had the Honor of writing to Your Excellency on the 20th Ulto.
I have obtained Returns of some Corps, which I had not then. I find
there are in Moylan’s Regiment of Light Dragoons a few Men belonging to
the State of Maryland, of which I inclose You a particular Return,
specifying the terms for which they stand engaged.

I have received within a few days past the Honor of Your Excellency’s
Letter of the 3d of last month. In consequence, I have informed General
Gist1 that a Flag shall be furnished to
convey Your passport to New York, respecting Mrs Chamier’s furniture
&c, and I very much wish that She may receive them safe. Her
peculiar circumstances and the generosity of Mr Chamier in his life
time to our prisoners, as has been frequently mentioned, seem to have
given Mrs Chamier a good claim to the indulgence the Council have

I have the Honor, etc. 2
