ALS as president, signed “G:o Washington,” one page, 8 x 10, September 20, 1790. Letter to Charles Lee, penned from Mount Vernon. In full: "I have duly received your letter of the 12th. About Six hundred dollars may supply my wants between this and my arrival in Philadelphia. At present I have no immediate call. Mrs. Washington and myself during our stay at this place, will at all times be glad to see Mrs. Lee & yourself and other friends & acquaintances without ceremony." Includes the address panel (now detached) address in Washington's hand to "Charles Lee Esq'r, Alexandria." In very good to fine condition, with thin vertical lines of soiling to the left edge, and some mild professional cleaning and restoration. Lee would go on to serve as attorney general under both Washington and John Adams, first taking office in 1795. During his term in office he remained in Alexandria, which was then part of the capital district. An exceptional letter boasting a desirable political association.
