George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Benjamin Lincoln, 2 July 1781

Heights of Tarry Town July 2nd 1781

Dear Sir

I have this moment received your favor, and have only to express my wish that you will cross as soon as possible & take possession of the Heights of Kings Bridge so as to support the Duke de Lauzun & prevent the Enemy from attempting to cut him off by that way or to prevent their retreating if they are out.

I shall be at Valentines Hill in Mile Square by tomorrow morning if practicable. I am Dear Sir your Most Obedt Hble Servt

Go: Washington
