To Brigadier General Enoch Poor
Head Quarters [Whitemarsh, Pa.] 20th November 1777.
Upon receipt of this you are to direct your march towards this Army, and to be as expeditious as possible in forming a Junction. I am &ca.
If in consequence of yesterdays orders you should have field off towards Trenton1—continue that Rout and give me notice of it by a Messenger—he will probably find me at the Crooked Billet.
Df, in John Laurens’s writing, DLC:GW; Varick transcript, DLC:GW.
