To George Washington from William Hambly, 17 February 1797

Hond Sir Falmo Feb. 17th 1797

Some time since I did myself the pleasure to wait on You through the Medium of my Friends Messrs Thompson & Veitch, with the present of an old Cheshire Cheese.

The gracious manner in which you was pleased to receive it—and the growing respect I feel for Your Character—influences me to supplicate Your Condescension, to receive another at my hands—which I hope you will be pleased to do.

At this Moment the Eyes of all the World are fixed on N. A.—and I hope those who wish her ill, will be greatly disappointed.

I hope kind Heaven will be graciously pleased to lengthen out your days—and to make Your last Moments your most tranquil ones. May nothing arise in your political Horizon to ruffle your Temper—or disturbe your Retirement—is the most sincere prayer of your Excellencies most Obedient Humble Servant
