Abstract:

Washington writes to Dayton from his Camp at Germantown, 1777 August 6, enclosing an undelivered letter sent previously (not present). Dayton is orderd to halt due to uncertainty as to the destination of the British fleet and then to "march to Peekskill upon receiving authentic intelligence that the Fleet have again arrived at the Hook or any where upon the Coast of New England." Docketed.

In a letter marked "Private," Washington writes to Madison from Mount Vernon, 1793 October 14, concerning "the calamitious situation of Philadelphia," i.e. the Yellow Fever epidemic. He seeks Madison's advice on the legality of the Executive convening Congress at Germantown, or some other place. He mentions that he has requested an official opinion from the Attorney-General and has also sought Thomas Jefferson's advice. He notes that Governor Thomas Mifflin has reported 3500 deaths and that Philadelphia is "now almost depopulated by removals and death." Docketed.
