George Washington to Tronson du Coudray
Pompton Plains [New Jersey] July 13, 1777. Discusses disposal of the artillery imported on Amphitrite. Says that Du Coudray is wrong in assuming that Mauduit du Plessis1 is aide-de-camp to Brigadier General Henry Knox. States that, as Du Coudray does not yet hold an official position, original arrangements for artillery will continue in effect.
