Head Quarters near Passaic Falls 31st October 1780
You will oblige me by forwarding the inclosed to Colo. Wood, as expeditiously as possible. It contains orders to send down Brigadiers Genl Spetch and de Gall of the Convention Troops, to whose exchanges sir Henry Clinton has consented. The Gentlemen are both old and infirm and it is therefore to be wished that they may accomplish their long Journey before the severity of the season sets in.
I have recd Mr Stodderts favor of the 28th with Colo. Jacksons Commissions. I have the honor &c.
