Dear "General Cornwallis",
Friday, January 21, 2000
Thank you so much for your reply.
Greenwich did reply with a copy of the letter from Admiral Sir Hugh Palliser, but did not have any clue as to where the Washington flag might be.
Other folks suggested something or other "Peerage" as a means of tracking down the current families of Palliser, Lord Sandwich, and the family of the Admiral who received the Washington Cruiser flag as a gift of his son, the ship captain who captured the flag when the Washington went aground while being pursued by the British warship. What do you know of that Peerage publication and process?
Based on your comment, I have discovered the following, that I shall research further for General Washington...
