Highlands 19th June 1780
A small Detachment of Clinton’s Brigade is arrived—the Rest I hope will be on soon—A Report is spreading here that the Enemy are withdrawn or are withdrawing from the Jerseys. Should this be the Case I have earnestly to hope that Moylan’s Corps may be remanded, as their Services will be essentially wanted on the Lines on this Side—indeed I think them so consequential to this Quarter that their Absence will be felt & that probably severely. I have the Honor to be Dear Sir with the greatest Respect your Excellency’s most obedient Servant
