From Major Alexander Clough

Letter not found: from Maj. Alexander Clough, 23 Aug. 1778. On 24 Aug., GW’s aide-de-camp Richard Kidder Meade wrote Clough: “His Excellency commands me to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of Yesterdays date—& thank you for the intelligence it contain’d—He wishes you to continue your endeavours to collect the most perfect accots possible; the circumstance in particular which you mention is of no small importance & it cou’d be wished that you wou’d examine strictly evry person on that Head, when by comparing the whole together, you may pretty well determine on the truth—This or any other matter of consequence you will be pleased to transmit to His Excy” (DLC:GW).
