Head Quarters Newburgh 1 OClock P.M. Decr 3d 1782

Dear Sir

The Relief has been countermanded entirely—but your project is to go on without being confined precisely to the time before limited; you will however seize the first good opportunity within a week or ten days; beyond which the Party cannot be kept on the Lines; in the mean time you will communicate your Orders to the two Companies of Light Infantry at Bedford, & take every precaution to make the Enterprize as successful as possible. Your Most Obed. Servt

Go: Washington
