Head-Quarters, Newburgh, July 10th 1782
I have been favoured with your Letter of the 16th June, apprizing me of the Disaster that befell the Militia at Sandusky. I am persuaded you did every thing in your Power to insure them Success. I cannot but regret the Misfortune & more especially for the Loss of Colo. Crawford, for whom I had a very great Regard. I am, Sir, Your most obt Sert.
