From David Cobb to Coggeshall Olney, 22 June 1782

H. Quarters June 22d 1782

Dr Sir

The Commander in Chief has no other objection to your proposals for reinlisting the Recruits, than your offering a bounty before you have the permission of the State to do it; but when you have obtained that permission—he has no objection to giving furloughs for one or two months next Winter; for those you reinlist.

Those Recruits who have been furloughd from the Connecticut Line, reinlisted without any bounty, if any in your Regt choose to reinlist on the same terms, they will no doubt be indulged in the same manner—if any do reinlist on these terms, you must be accountable, in some measure, for their return. I am Sir &c.
