Connecting Presidential Collections (a centralized site for searching across presidential collections) provides access to letters, 1771-1784, from Dandridge to George Washington, his brother-in-law, 1771-1784, published in the Papers of George Washington. The correspondence pertains to property and estates, and events during the Revolutionary war.  On August 22, 1777, Dandridge writes to Washington with distress about the arrival of the British fleet in the Chesapeake Bay. “This Country is in as bad a situation to resist an invasion at present,” he wrote, “as you can possible conceive.”
