I had the honor of receiving yours of the 10th Inst to which I woud reply that the Ladies had not the most distant wish, that their Donation shoud be bestow’d in any manner, that did not perfectly accord with your Opinion—I shall therefore without delay put the plan in Execution—& I am in hopes our expedition will prove, at once, our Industry, our earnest desire to promote the Comfort of the Soldiery—& our Chearfulness to comply with your request. I am With the sincerest Repect & Esteem Your very hum. Sert
