Head Quarters New Windsor 10th Decr 1780
You will be pleased to make to me as soon as possible an accurate return of the Men and Horses in your troop—the quantity of Cloathing and number of Arms—Accoutrements and furniture of every kind fit for service, and what will be your deficiencies for the next Campaign. You will also make a return of all the Articles of Cloathing and Accoutrements drawn by the troop since the 1st Sepr 1779. The foregoing are called for by the Board of War, for their government, as they are directed by Congress to make provision for the Cavalry. I am &c.
