George Washington Papers

From Robert Hanson Harrison to William Livingston, 19 April 1780

Camp Morris Town 19 April 1780


The Letter I have the honor to inclose Your Excellency, was received by the General just as he was setting out to meet the Minister of France, who is expected at Head Quarters to day. The General desired me to inform You that he thought the further service of the Militia Horse under Captain Craigs absolutely essential, and that he would be obliged by your Excellency’s requesting them to continue a Month longer unless their place should be supplied sooner by an equal number of Others. He did not recollect the terms on which they had been engaged by the Baron de Kalb, but said he was willing they should be retained on the same. The Light Horseman that brought the Letter from Brigadr Genl Huntington will return to day & will be the Bearer of any commands Your Excellency may think proper to send to Capn Craigs. I have the Honor to be with sentiments of great respect & esteem Yr Excellency’s Most Obed. sert
