My Dear Fanny                                                          (March 22, 1790)

I wrote to you yesterday but forgot to ask you, to look in my old trunk in the garret, - and you will find a silver seal with my father's arms, it will be more convenient to make a good impression than to send the seal, - you may do as you think best, I wish to have it as soon as you can send it to me, - there was a white necklace in the paper with the pins please to send that and some small mother of pearl beads that is in one of the drawers in my cabinet - if you seal them secure in a paper they will come to me very safe, - you must have them directed to the President, - my love and good wishes attend you and all with you Remember me to all enquiring friends - and believe me your most affectionate

M Washington
