George Washington Papers

To George Washington from George Clinton, 8 October 1780

Pokeepsie 8 Oct’r 1780.

D’r Sir,

I am favored with your Excellency’s Letter of the 30th 1st Instant, and communicated the Contents of it to the State Agent, who informs me that he has made use of every Means in his Power for hastening on the Supplies from this State for the army and I have Reason to hope they will arrive in Time to relieve your Necessities. The providing of the Flour Casks your Excellency mentions, will greatly tend to hasten this Business as it was not in the Power of the agent to procure them speedily as the peculiar situation of the army required.
