Morris Town Augst 10th 1780
Yours of the 6th I have Receiv’d, and Majr Groenendyer has Returned to this post agreeable to Orders.
Inclosed is a Return of the men at this post, which is greatly short of the number intended; I have done every thing in my power to Expedite their Collecting, but they come in slow which makes me think I shall have but little, if any, more than half the number Ordered.
I cannot help mentioning that we have very little Ammunition, should be glad to know when to apply in Case we should be Ordered to any post where we may likely want. I am Sir Your Excellencys Most Obedt Servant
