To George Washington from Jeremiah Wadsworth, 4 December 1778

From Jeremiah Wadsworth

Boundbrook [N.Y.] December 4 1778


Your letter of the 2d instant inclosing General Sullivan’s & General Stark’s letters with the issuing comisary’s certificate came to hand late last night. I have reason to beleive the troops before this time are well supplied with flour. My exertions to supply that post1 have been unremitting and my difficulties with it greater than with all the other posts and armies of the united states. I shall give such further orders as will prevent your Excellency being further troubled again from that quarter. I am &c.

Jere. Wadsworth C.G.P.
