I have been favd with your two letters both of to-day—One of them is dated at 11—the other at 2 O’clock.
As soon as this comes to hand [(]if you have not done it before) I wd beg of you to send me as full and explicit an acct of the enemies present position as you can possibly obtain. I would wish to recei[v]e it before morning, as it will be a matter of great influence in directing my movements.
Inclosed is a letter to Gen. Arnold which I beg you will seal & forward by an express.1 I am &c.
