George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Ebenezer Huntington, 14 October 1781

Camp before York 14th October 81


The reason why I askd leave to remain in this part of the Army without Command, was in Consequence of the Reduction of a Regt, the Command of which, by the Fortune of War & the Custom of the Army I supposed’ myself intitled to, which Reduction deprives me of the honnary duties of the Siege while others enjoy it Junior to me, and a much more honorable Command in Camp—I am with Respect & Esteem Your Excellencys Obedt & Humble Servant

Eben. Huntington
