Head Quarters near passaic Falls 1st Novr 1780

Dear Sir

I was yesterday honored with your Excellency’s favor of the 27th ulto. The letters inclosed for the president of Congress were immediately forwarded by Express.

I am happy in believing that the dispatches for which you are apprehensive were not in the Mail, lately lost at Stratford as the new Regulations for the Army were not compleated when that post left Philadelphia. They were finished the 21st ulto and I hope will reach most of the Legislatures during their Fall Session. I have the honor to be with perfect Respect Yr Excellency’s most obt and humble Servt

Go: Washington

P.S. I transmitted Your Excellency some very important dispatches on the 18h ulto. I hope they have got safe to hand.
