To Colonel Timothy Pickering
[New Windsor, New York, February 21, 1781]
The Marquis expects a letter here which he has left his servant to bring him to Smiths Clove, with some little articles. His servant has no horse. Will you be so good as to furnish him with one? If you have none at hand, please to have one impressed. The horse will return tomorrow.
Yr. humble servant
