To Colonel David Henley
Head Quarters Fredericksburg [N.Y.]
November 27th 1778
The army is ordered to winter Cantonments at the following places.
On Tuesday next1 unless you recive orders to the contrary you will direct the officers to march the men which compose your Light Corps to the different Regiments to which they belong by the nearest routes to the above Stations.
Inclosed you will find your Commission dated agreeable to the determination of the Committee of arrangement—those for the Officers of your Regiment were forwarded to them a few days past.
I shall set out tomorrow morning for Middle Brook in Jersey by the way of Fishkill—Kings ferry and Elizabeth Town. I am Sir Your most Obet Servant.
