To George Washington from James Montgomery, 17 February 1797

Sir, Philadelphia, February 17th 1797

Conscious as I am of the Importance of your Time I yet must take the Liberty to intrude so far on it as to solicit from your Justice that Redress the malicious attack on my Character calls for. I trust there are no doubts on your Excellencys Mind relative to it and it is but a Duty owing to Myself and Family to have such unmeritted aspersions refuted Whilst it is to you I can appeal for that Redress which I earnestly solicit your Excellency to grant and by that means let me know on what Footing I stand, My Character has been Attacked, by the Collector the Testimonies that I have handed to your Excellency certainly refutes those charges in their fullest extent but it yet remains to give me the Satisfaction, of knowing myself cleared from the Aspersions cast on me and to your Excellency I appeal and am with the Highest Sentiments of Respect your most devoted Humble Servant
