George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Frédéric, baron de Kalb, 16 March 1780

Head Quarters,Morristown 16th March 1780.

Dear Sir,

I have been favored with your letter of the 14th with its inclosure.

With respect to Bedkins corps, there have been as yet no orders from any authority to countenance what is proposed: & Till something is adopted for the cavalry in general, his corps must remain in its present condition.

The propriety or impropriety of a change in the cantonments of troops under your command, can be best determined by your self. If their present position in your opinion should appear to be the safest, little matter of convenience or the like are no inducements for an alteration. I am, Dr Sir your obt sert.

G. Washington.
