To Colonel Timothy Pickering

[Dobbs Ferry, New York, July 24, 1781]


My servant informs me, that the saddle he rides has met with an accident that renders it unfit for use. As there are none here to be purchased, I should be glad it could be exchanged. I suppose it may be repaired and made serviceable again; however if like indulgencies are not allowed to other officers, I do not wish it for me.1

I am with esteem   Sir   Your most Obed
