To Jeremiah Wadsworth
Head Quarters [Valley Forge] 8th June 1778
As the Stores at the head of Elke will by the removal of the Troops under Genl Smallwoods Command have no other protection than such as may be afforded by the Militia in that neighborhood—you are to have all the magazines of your Department transported without loss of time to the most convenient place for the purposes of the Army. I am &c.
