To George Washington from Philip John Schuyler, 27 July 1781

Albany July 27th 1781

Dear Sir

Yesterday one hundred and seven Batteaus were compleatly finished. I should have desisted when one hundred were finished, but as the materials for Seven more were prepared, and that they would probably be lost, I concluded It best to work them up into boats.

General Green[e] in his letter to Congress Observes that the Enemy have only Charlestown in south Carolina, and Savanna in Georgia left; Is ninety six then reduced, or is that post in North Carolina? I am Dear Sir with every respectful and affectionate sentiment Your Excellency’s most Obedient Servant

Ph: Schuyler
