GW at Philadelphia. GW submitted to Congress the letter and enclosure of 10 April from the U.S. circuit court judges for N.Y. They had argued that the Invalid Pensions Act of 1792 was unconstitutional.
N.J. politician Joseph Bloomfield wrote GW asking for appointment to the office of treasurer of the U.S. Mint, which he would not receive. Secretary of War Henry Knox wrote urging fast replacement for Samuel Hodgdon, who had resigned from his office as quartermaster general. Knox recommended James O’Hara be appointed to succeed Hodgdon, and GW appointed O’Hara to this post the next day. Va. Gov. Henry Lee sent GW a copy of a letter from Col. Arthur Campbell, which likely gave intelligence on Indian relations.
