To Thomas Lloyd Moore, 31 October 1799
NY. Ocr. 31st. 1799
Your letter of the twenty eighth of October has been delivered to me.
You will probably have received orders from General Washington upon your Arrival at York Town. Should these orders not meet you there you will continue your march to Harper’s ferry.
With great consideration
