From George Washington to Major General Israel Putnam, 13 June 1777

To Major General Israel Putnam

Head Quarters Middle Brook 13th June 1777

Dear Sir

When I wrote to you last evening I forgot to desire that the detatchments of Colo. Saml B. Webbs and Colo. Sherburns Regiments might march with the first division from Peekskill. They are to join Genl Varnums Brigade, which is at present weak. When any other detatchments of the same Regiments arrive with you, they are to be hastened forward as fast as possible.

Df, in Tench Tilghman’s writing, DLC:GW; Varick transcript, DLC:GW. GW’s aide-de-camp Tench Tilghman wrote to Brig. Gen. Nathaniel Heard on 14 June enclosing this letter with instructions for Heard to forward it to Putnam “immediately” (DLC:GW).
