GW at Philadelphia. GW wrote Thomas Jefferson about the difficulties of getting the plan for the Federal City engraved in Philadelphia. “The Engravers say eight weeks is the shortest time in which the Plan can be engraved--(probably they may keep it eight months). Is not this misteriously strange!” GW then asked Jefferson if there was any way to get the plans engraved in Boston instead. GW also asked if Jefferson had spoken with Andrew Ellicot about completing his survey of the Federal City.
Alexander Hamilton sent GW resolutions of the Bank of the United States.
