THE



TREASON OF CHARLES LEE.



" If I had ever assumed the character of a military genius, and
the officer of experience ; if, under these false colors, I had so-
licited the command I was honored with ; or if, after my appoint-
ment, I had driven on, under the sole guidance of my own judg-
ment, and self-will ; and misfortunes, the result of obstinacy and
misconduct, not of necessity, had followed, I should have thought
myself a proper subject for the lash, not only of his, but of the
pen of every other writer, and a fit object of public resentment.
. . . An effrontery, which few men do, and, for the honor of
human nature, none ought to possess."

Washington to President Reed, July 29
