Head Quarters Decr 31st 1782
I have received your Letter of the 26th. The matter respecting Capt. Duncan may remain as at present, until further directions. I am Sir Your Most Obed. &c.
P.S. All Deserters who come to your Cantonment are to be sent to Head Quarters—they may draw provisions sufficient to bring them there.
