To Colonel Jedediah Huntington

Head Quarters Morris Town 21st April 1777


I have yours of the 15th instant. If filling up your Regt can be accomplished any thing the sooner by your remaining in Connecticut, a while longer, I have no objection, but you must send one of your Feild Officers forward to Peekskill to receive and form your small detatchments as they come up.

I hope the late Measures taken by your Govr and Council to compleat your quota will prove effectual. I am Sir &ca.
