George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Jeremiah Ballard, 1 May 1780

[   ]town 1st May 1780


I have received your favour inclosing a return of the Flour &ca at Brunswick. I have only to desire, that you will use every exertion to have it brought away as expeditiously as possible, and make its security while there the object of your attending, and also to guard your party from surprise by every necessary precaution, as it is not improbable but the Enemy may attempt some enterprise against it—When the Flour is all nearly brought away, I wish you to give me information of it.
