Head Quarters 6th Decemr 1782
I am happy to find by your favor of the 2d that Mrs Carter and Miss Schuyler are so far recovered as to be able to bear a removal to Albany.
Upon a supposition that you will procure a passport from Sir Guy Carleton, I shall lodge orders at the post of Dobbs’s Ferry to permit the Sloop to pass by. I shall expect you will drop Anchor before Newburg.
Be pleased to make Mrs Washingtons and my Compliments to Mrs Schuyler and the other Ladies. I am Dear Sir very sincerely Yours,
