George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Elias Dayton, 21 March 1782

Head Quarters Philadelphia March 21st 1782


I propose setting out for the North River in a short time, & wish you to detach a Capt. & 40 Men from the Jersey Brigade so as that the party may be at Somerset Court House by Monday night next without fail; it will be expedient for them to be furnished with three or four days provision, to provide against any contingency of bad weather or unforseen delay—I am Sir.
