I have not been favoured with any Thing from you since my too last but that never makes any Difference in my Writing as your Claims of Friendship & Gratitude upon me are superior to all other. The Congress have made an Appointment of Generals as by the inclosed Paper. Armstrong is ordered to South Carolina—Thompson to New York the others keep their present Situation. Genl Lee’s Destination is...
I have now the Pleasure of informing you that a Vessel long expected from France & Holland arrived a few Days ago with 25 Tons of Powder—300 Stand of excellent Arms & 1500 Weight of Salt Petre. We are hourly in Expectation of farther Arrivals, but we must now soon expect some Ships of War in our River which I fear will cut off all farther Enterprizes of the like Nature. I have been in Doubt...
This Morning your Express arrived with an Account of the interesting Events which have taken Place since this Month began. I beg leave to congratulate you on Appearances so favourable to the Interests of our Country & your own Character. Not that in my Opinion it was the least clouded by your Inactivity as the Causes were well known, but it is certain that Enterprize & Success give a...
The great Changes which have taken Place with you will I doubt scarcely leave you Time to read a Letter, but as it coveys a piece of good News, I will venture to interrupt you for a few Moments. I dare say you have heard how troublesome & dangerous the back Inhabitants of North Carolina were growing—Genl Gage sent some Scotch Officers there last Summer who pretending a Disgust to the...

The Gentlemen of the Light Horse who went into the Jersey have returnd safe—they proceeded into the Country till they met an intelligent Person directly from Trenton who informd them that Gen. Howe was there with the main Body of his Army—that the Flying Army consisting of the light Infantry & Grenadiers under Ld Cornwallis still lay at Penny Town & there was no Appearance of a Movement—that...
Pomroy whom I sent by your Order to go to Amboy & so through the Jersey & round by Princeton to you returned to Burlington yesterday—he went to South Amboy but was not able to get over—upon which he came up to Brunswick pass’d on to Princeton—& was prevented going to Pennington—upon which he returned to Burlington by Way of Cranberry. His Intelligence is that he saw no Troops, Baggage Waggons...

I beg Leave to remind you of an Application I made to your Excelly before I left Morris Town in Behalf of Mr Odell a Gentleman of this Place who acts in the double Capacity of a Clergyman & Physician. He was drove from his Home by the Violence of the Gondola Men who hunted him in such a Manner as in my Opinion made it necessary for him to retire to preserve his Life. At that time the Enemy...
I did myself the Pleasure of addressing you a few Days ago on a particular Occasion & then expected to have attended you in less than a Week —but the Difficulty of procuring a proper Retreat for my Family & adjusting my Affairs will make it longer: But if in the Settlement of the Cartel or any other Occasion you think I can be of Service, I will obey the earliest Summons. We have not been...
In Compliance with your Request respecting the Horses taken & sent down here, Col. Fitzgerald & myself thought it best that he should take up the two that were here that you might make the Choice yourself or keep both if they pleased you. Capt. Lewis had sent for the Grey for his Trumpeter but if you should not fancy him I think he is too good for that Service. General Johnson & Col. Bedford I...
Having but a few Moments Notice of this Express I can only acknowledge the Receipt of your Excellys last Favour, & acquaint you that I will take the first Oppy of consulting Mr Cox on the Appointment of Commissary of Prisoners. As Col. Biddle the Deputy Qr Master & Col. Flower the Commissary of Stores have the Rank of Colonel who have moved in much lower Spheres in Life than Col. Cox I have no...
Since I had the Honour of writing to you from Philada I have seen Mr Cox & made the Proposal to him mentioned in your last Favour —I took no Notice of Rank as if he did not wish for the Office of Commissary it would not be worth while to touch that String. He expressd many Thanks for your polite Attention to him but declined the Office as being unconnectd with any Corps & out of all Line of...
A Person accidentally passing in a great Hurry gives me an Opportunity to acknowledge your Excellys Favour of the 14th Instt. Before I received it I had wrote you Col. Cox’s Answer to the Proposal of the Commissaryship for Prisoners & sent it to Philadelphia under Cover to Col. Moylan to be forwarded by the first good Oppy: his Absence I suppose has delayed it so that I must trouble you with a...
I was honoured with yours of the 29th May ⅌ Express & take the first Oppy to express my sincere & grateful Acknowledgments of the Favour intended me by appointing me to the Command of the Horse. The Difficulties which have arisen in Congress, the Time, Manner & Circumstances under which the Appointment as General Officer has been made so as to enable me to profit by your Favour, added to the...
Letter not found: from Joseph Reed, 12 June 1777. In his letter to Reed of 23 June , GW says that “Your favors of the 12th and 18th Instt are both before me.”
By some Accident Mr Peters omitted sending me your Favour of the Instt so that I did not receive it till several Days after he returnd. I cannot sufficiently acknowledge the kind Sentiments it breathes, nor express the Satisfaction it has given me. If I had been capable of the Disingenuity which might seem to appear I should certainly have guarded it: but as my Letter to which that was an...
I shall make no Apology for troubling you with the following Hints because I well know that the Goodness & I may truly add the greatness of your Mind would induce you to listen with Patience & even Chearfulness to the Suggestions of the meanest Soldier if properly presented. Whether Philadelphia is the present Object of Attack is yet a Question & every one reasons upon it as his Fears Hopes &...
We apprized you a few Hours ago that the River was rising fast & scarcely fordable the heavy Rains since have swelled it so much that it is now impassable—& from the best Accounts & Opinions it will be 24 Hours before it will be fordable for Footmen. In the former Letter I mentioned by desire of Genl Armstrong who came up to this Place this Morning that Monsr Portal has been up & will lay out...
I wrote before this Day & have procured a Parcel of Maps which not knowing of this Oppty or of my being down here I must defer sending till tomorrow. I cannot help acquainting you, my dear General that the Distance of the Army from the City & its March so remote has given great Alarm & very much discourages the Militia, if any real Service is expected—I do not doubt you have sufficient Reasons...
I stayed at my House as long or perhaps rather longer than was prudent—the Enemy came there in about 15 Minutes after—I have collected a small Party here at the Meeting House about 1 Mile above my own House—& soon after we took two Prisoners whose Information is on the other Leaf —Your Excelly will judge of its Value—They are so ignorant of the Transactions of their Army that I could get...
You will before this reaches you be informed that the Enemy quitted their Post last Evening. of Consequence the Attempt failed. the best Account I can get of it, is that Genl Howe with his principal officers came over yesterday reconnoitred the Ground which they were busily fortifying—they immediately ceased working began to embark & continued it till Sunset when the last went over. They then...
We came down this Morning to the Edge of the Meadows & in View of the Bank which is the Road of Communication but Genl Potter with a few Horsemen having alarm’d the Enemy who were then working at some little Breastwork on which they sent out a large Detachment made it unsafe for us to remain longer on this Ground. We have certain Intelligence that last Night a Body of the Enemy recross’d...
General Green will give you so perfect an Idea of what he has seen here as to make any Remark unnecessary from any one else. I hope & beleive it is not yet too late to give the Forts some effectual Releif but every Moment is precious in The present advanced Season & after the Injury so heavy a Cannonade must have done them. As I know you are pleased with having the Sentiments of every Person...
