George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Udny Hay, 17 May 1780

Head Quarters Morris Town 17th May 1780

Dear Sir

Be pleased to make immediate inquiry what number of the platform lank which were cut last fall and brought down the River still remain at Fishkill or West Point, and give directions to Colo. Lewis to have the number made up to 1000 of the proper length and thickness—General Schuyler thinks his Mills at Saratogha can furnish the deficiency—As this may be a matter of importance, request Colo. Lewis to have the plank cut and sent down as speedily as possible. I am, &c.

G. Washington.
