Garrison near Stamford May 12th 1782
Since I wrote your Excellency this morning, I have received your favour of the 8th Instant by Mr Wyikoff. But, as I look upon it that your orders of the 10th countermand those of the former date I have deferred granting a Flag till I shall hear further from your Excellency.
Agreeable to your desire I enclose a Return of the Troops under my Command. I have the honour to be with great respect your Excellency’s most Obedient Humble Servant
