I am to request that you will cross the North or Hudson’s river, as soon as possible, with the Troops now under your command and take post on the other side on some good convenient grounds, where you will wait for further orders. Some advices I have received this minute require this movement to be made with every degree of dispatch. I am D. Sir with respect & esteem
