Head Quarters New Windsor 16th June 1781
By a letter from General Schuyler I am informed that he has purchased one thousand Barrels of Flour for the Army by order of Mr Morris. 500 are sent down here and the remainder are detained at Albany untill I give further directions concerning them—You will be pleased to deliver them to the order of Brig. Genl Clinton for the use of the troops to the Northward—I have taken the liberty to address you upon this subject, at the desire of Genl Schuyler, who will probably have left Albany to attend the legislature at Poughkepsie. I am &c.
