To Baron von Steuben
[Smiths Clove, New York, June 10, 1779]
You see the difficulty there is in getting the Majors to serve as Brigade Inspectors. The Board of war have asked the General’s opinion about extending the appointment to the line of Captains. He requests your opinion.
Very Respectfully Yr. Obed serv
