Washington's letter to Baker.jpg
New Windsor May 29, 1781


A day or two ago I requested Col. Harrison to apply to you for a pair of Pincers to fasten the wire of my teeth. –I hope you furnished him with them.– I now wish you would send me one of your scrapers as my teeth stand in need of cleaning, and I have little prospect of being in Philadelph. soon.– It will come very safe by the Post– & in return, the money shall be sent so soon as I know the cost of it.–

I am Sir,
Yr Very Hble Serva
G. Washington
