To George Washington from Brigadier General William Maxwell, 18 August 1778

From Brigadier General William Maxwell

Letter not found: from Brig. Gen. William Maxwell, c.18 Aug. 1778. On 21 Aug., GW wrote Maj. Gen. Nathanael Greene: “By a Letter which I received yesterday from Genl Maxwell, inclosing one from Major Howell … it appears certain, that Sixteen of Lord Howes fleet entered the Hook on the 17th.” GW’s other correspondence with Maxwell around this time suggests that the travel time for letters from Richard Howell to Maxwell was about one day and for letters from Maxwell to GW about two days.
