Thanks for catching that. We will update the summary now.
In the summary description paragraph for this document [ http://washingtonpapers.org/documents/george-washingtons-reply-to-the-hebrew-congregation/ ], you refer to the “Hebrew Congregation of Providence.” The document is addressed to the Hebrew Congregation of NEWPORT, RI, not Providence.
