To Brigadier General Charles Scott
[Robins Tavern, near Allentown, New Jersey, June 27, 1778]
This part of the troops marches instantly. We are to join in the Monmouth road one mile this side of Taylor’s Tavern. You will govern yourself accordingly. If you can find Morgan let him be desired again to keep close to the enemy and attack when we attack.
I am sir Yr Obed serv.
Alex Hamilton Aide De Camp
