I am directed by the Commander in Chief to inclose you his Farewell Orders, which he desires you to publish on the 2d day of next month; As the General will take measures for publishing them in the Philadelphia Papers, perhaps it will be better, that they come to the Public thro’ that Channel only, as thereby all incorrect Copies will be prevented from appearing. I am Sir with greatest esteem Your Most Obedt Servant
