To Major General John Sullivan

Head Quarters Fredericksburg 22d Sepr 1778

Dear Sir

I have recd your favs. of the 18th and 19th: I have recd no accounts from the enemy since I wrote to you last,1 except that the troops under Genl Gray landed at White Stone upon Long Island—Another considerable embarkation is much talked of in N. york, but whether it is really to take place, or what is the destination I cannot learn with precision. I am &c.
