George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Paul-François-Jean-Nicolas, comte de Barras, 24 June 1781

Head Quarters New Windsor June 24 1781


The information, I had the honor of communicating to your Excellency in my last Letter, as an extract from Genl Sullivans Letter, respecting the arrival of a large Fleet of Transports to Chesapeak Bay, is I believe intirely without foundation. My intelligence of the Enemies operations in Virginia is so vage & uncertain that I am not able to give your Excellency any particular information of their movements. I have the honor to be your Excellencys most obedt Servant.

P.S. I have advices from N. York that Arbuthnot is at the Hook with 7 sail of the Line.
