Travellers-Rest 17th June 1780


Yesterday evening I had the Honor to receive Your Excellencys Letter dated the 4th Inst from Morris Town—I have for some time expected, That The Congress, or Your Excellency, would inform me where I should be commanded to serve for the ensuing Campaign; the Circumstances of the Public, as well as of my Own private Affairs, make it even now very necessary That I should be acquainted, where I am to be employed before I leave Virginia; with all due respect I am Sir Your Excellencys most Obedient Humble Servant

Horatio Gates
