Letter From George Washington Found

A letter from President Washington found after more than 200 years.
The letter was sent in May 1787 to Jacob Morris. His granddaughter Julia Kean, pasted it into a scrapbook about four decades later below a portrait of Washington.
President Washington wrote that letter 2 years before he became president and it was sent from Philadelphia.
The scrapbook was given to Kean University this spring along with the other contents of Liberty Hall, a 50-room mansion near the campus where members of the Kean family had lived since 1811. It is now a museum.
The gift was made by Julia's great-great-nephew, John Kean, a first cousin of the Thomas H. Kean who served as New Jersey governor from 1982 through 1990.
It is so interesting to find such an historical letter so long after it was first written as those are so important to reconstruct history.
