George Washington's Letter to James Madison

Winchester, May 6,1755

Honour'd Madam: I cam to this place last Saturday, and shall set out to morrow with the General of Wills Creek; where I fear we shall wait some time for a sufficient number of Waggons to transport us over the Mountains. I am very happy in the General's Family, and I am treated with a complaisant Freedom which is quite agreeable; so that I have no occasion to doubt the satisfaction I propos'd in making the Campaigne. As we have met with nothing yet worth relating I shall only beg my love to my Brother's and Sister's; and Compliments to Friends. I am , Honour'd Madam Your most dutiful and obedient son,
