George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Samuel Holden Parsons, 7 July 1780

Head Quarters Bergen County 7th July 1780

Dear Sir

I am pleased to hear by yours of the 4th that the State of Connecticut have directed one thousand Men to be added to the number for compleating the Continental Battalions. I have only to repeat my directions to have the Levies forwarded from Danbury to West point as fast as they arrive—that we may lose none of the little time allowed for arranging and training them.

By a letter form General Heath I learn that the Hermione is gone out upon a cruise.

My letter of the 29th June will inform you that it is not in my power to dispose of the drafts from the Connecticut light Horse agreeable to their wishes. I am &c.
