To Elizabeth Hamilton
Bedford [Pennsylvania] Oct 20 
The day after tomorrow I march with the army. Be assured that there is not the least appearance of opposition from the Insurgents & that I shall take the greatest care of myself & I hope by the Middle of November to return. Have patience my love & think of me constantly as I do of you with the utmost tenderness.
Kisses & blessings without number to You & my Children
