To Colonel John Lamb1
[New Windsor, New York, February 2, 1781]
There is a man of your regiment with Mr. Garanger.2 The embarrassment of his circumstances induces me to request you will oblige him with permitting the soldier to continue with him ’till his fate is decided which will be in a few weeks.
Yrs. with great regard
