To Colonel Timothy Pickering

There are five boats1 ordered from Kings ferry to Dobbes ferry, which The General directs you will immediately send a proper number of carriages for, and bring them to where the other boats are. Let no delay attend it, if you please.
Have you had the four which were already there brought on?
