George Washington to Thomas Jefferson, 14 December 1791

From George Washington

Dear Sir

I am very glad to find that matters, after all that has happened, stand so well between the Commissioners and Majr. L'Enfant.—I am sorry, however, to hear that the work is not in a more progressive State.

Yesterday afternoon I wrote a letter, of which the enclosed is the copy to Majr. L'Enfant, and receiving his of the 10th. added the Postscript thereto.—I hope the two will have a good effect.—I am always with great regard yr. affectionate,

Go: Washington
