To George Washington from Thomas Pinckney, 12 February 1797

Private
Dear Sir Charleston 12 Feby 1797

The Book forwarded herewith was sent to me at Cowes when on the Eve of my departure or I would have transmitted it to you by a less circuitous Route: the want of a fit opportunity to convey it hence ’till the present time has likewise occasioned the detention of the inclosed letter which was written shortly after my arrival.

I beg leave again to offer my sincere wishes that your retirement may be attended by comfort and tranquility equal to the services you have rendered to your Country, and to believe me to be with affectionate respect Dear Sir Your much obliged and most obedient Servant

Thomas Pinckney
