From Colonel Timothy Pickering
[Passaic Falls, New Jersey] Novr. 22nd. 1780
I believe it possible tho’ difficult to have Teams at the slote by Thursday night to take up five more Boats.1 I will endeavor to effect it. I presume they will come provided with oars. Must not they too be muffled? what Route are they to take? I shall be glad of further Instructions. It will doubtless be necessary to impress Horses on this Occasion.
