From George Washington to James McHenry, 3 December 1796

Sir, Philadelphia 3d Decr 1796

I have read all the letters of General Wayne, and their enclosures; as I have also done those of Captn Bruff and others, which you have laid before me.

Note such matters (in all of them) as require particular directions, which I shall be ready to give whenever they are laid before me.

The other parts, which call only for Office attention, will, I am persuaded, meet with prompt & ready dispatch. It is my wish to keep the business of the Departments up, leaving no burthen on my Successor that ought, of right, to be executed while I am in Office.
