Head Quarters 31st March 1783
I have received your Letter of the 18th instant.
No alteration in the Corps of Invalids has taken place, since your being with them—The Secretary at War, had in Contemplation to make some Reform, but nothing is yet effected—and it is doubtfull, whither any thing will soon be done.
In consideration of your peculiar Misfortune, & the Situation of Affairs at the present conjuncture—you will please to look on your furlough as extended to such Time, as you may receive particular Orders for your future Conduct. I am &c.
