(Photographs Below)



Official Letters to the Honorable American Congress,

Written, during the War between the

United Colonies and Great-Britain,

By His Excellency

George Washington,

Commander in Chief of the Continental Forces,

Now President of the United States.


Copied, by Special Permission, from the Original Papers Preserved in the Office of the Secretary of State, Philadelphia.



Boston: Manning & Loring, 1795. Rare American first edition. The scarce vol. II. of this historic two part work.356pp. Original leather binding is edgeworn but reamins sturdy and handsome. One leaf has a small tear with a small amount of text loss else all is clean and neat and complete within.


An exceedingly historic volume, covering the years 1777 & 1778. Wonderful detailed letters from Washington concerning the Revolutionary War - Crossing the Delaware, Militia, Troop Readiness, Maps needed, Ammunition Needs, Clothing needs, Morristown, New Jersey, White Plains, General Howe, Valley Forge, &c. Congress created the Continental Army in 1775 & John Adams nominated George Washington to be commander-in-chief. A remarkable rare volume.



Trenton, January 1, 1777: On Monday morning I passed the Delaware myself; the whole of our troops and artillery not till yesterday, owing to the ice which rendered their passage extremely difficult and fatiguing.



July 2, 1777: Our situation is truly delicate and embarrassing. Should we march to Peekskill, leaving general Howe on Staten Island, there will be nothing to prevent him passing to South Amboy, and pushing from thence to Philadelphia....I have written to generals Putnam and George Clinton fully upon the subject, urging them to put forth every exertion in their power, and instantly to call in a respectable body of militia to aid in the defence of those important posts at this critical conjecture.



Chester, August 25, 1777, eight o’clock: Two divisions of the army moved this morning, and will proceed after a short halt near this place to refresh themselves: the remainder will continue on their ground to-day, in order to rest and recover from the fatigue of the march yesterday and the day before. After breakfast I intend to let out for Wilmington with the light-horse, to reconnoitre the country, and to obtain the best information I can respecting the enemy.
