Description

Excerpt from Some Social Notes Addressed to Samuel Blachley Webb, 1776-1791 Into this life General Webb entered with zest and keen pleasure. He had almost been appointed Secretary at War, under the Confederation, but that coveted position had been given to Major General Benjamin Lincoln, whose fortunes and misfortunes in the war seemed to de mand that recognition. He had his military associates, and a wide acquaintance in the city to which even his imprison ment had contributed. He knew many of the members of Congress, and, a young widower, of decidedly social tastes and talents, he continually extended his acquaintanceship, which soon ripened into friendships. New York society had never offered so much, and few were so capable of en joying it at its best. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
