Head Quarters New Windsor 11th Feby 1781.
The new arrangements of all the Massachusetts Regiments have been delivered in, agreeable to General Orders, but they are not accompanied by the Returns of the names and Ranks of the retiring Officers. As these are equally essential you will be pleased to call for them immediately, and send them up to me as soon as they come in, that I may transmit them to the Board of War, at the same time that I transmit the new arrangement of the line.
Inclosed you have the Court Martial upon Oliver Richards of Colo. Sprouts Regimt which was found among the Office papers, upon assorting them. I am Dear Sir Your most obt Servt
P.S. I have recd your favors of the 8th 9th and 10th. I will have a further conversation with Doctr Cochran upon the subject of innoculation—it will depend upon being able to procure proper and seperate covering.
