George Washington to Colonel Timothy Pickering1
New Windsor [New York] January 1, 1781. Instructs Pickering to set up plan for replacement of lost military articles, to provide the necessary “provision of tents, camp kettles and other articles for the next campaign,” and to check into behavior of the corps of artificers.

1. This letter is misdated, as H did not return to Camp until about January 11, 1781. At the end of this letter there is a crossed out date which reads “Feby 8, 1781.” This date seems much more plausible.
