Head Quarters Bergen County 18th July 1780.
I was yesterday honored with yours of the 11th. I beg leave to present my thanks, thro’ you, to the Board for their attention to my recommendation of Capt. Vandyke, and for their past and present provision of Wines— The two pipes to which you advert came safely to hand, I acknowledged the receipt of them to the Quarter Master who forwarded them, not knowing that I was obliged to the Board for them. I have the honor &c.
