The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Nathaniel Russell

I have your favor of the 6th by Mr Walter and should take a singular pleasure in obliging you or any of your friends could I do it without injuring the just claims of others and without prejudicing the public service. But as your request involves these difficulties duty forbids what inclination would otherwise dictate.

I am Sir Your Most Obedient humble Serv
