Head Quarters near Passaic Falls Novr 16th 1780
Since your promotion to the rank of a Major General, the objections you before had to serve with the Main Army are obviated; you will therefore be pleased to join it as soon as may be.
I hope your health is so far confirmed, as to enable you to do it without loss of time. I am Sir Your most Obedient & Humble Servant.
