George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Nathanael Greene, 15 July 1780

Head Quarters 15th July 1780

Dr Sir,

The moment for commencing our operations is so near that no time is to be lost in bringing forward to the North-River, a proper proportion of intrenching tools for an operation against New York with all the ents which can be procured. To you it would be wholly unnecessary to recommend expedition. I am Dr Sir &

G. Washington.

P.S. Have you intrenching tools in this quarter, or how soon could they be had in case we should have occasion for them.
