Having been long accustomed to act under your Excellency’s eye, or particular Orders in the field, & frequently honored by your public approbation, & from a wish to merit a continuance of that favorable Opinion of my Conduct, since detatched from you after the Reduction of York, I am induced to lay before your Excellency a brief detail of the principal Operations of the troops under my...
