To George Washington from Jeremiah Wadsworth, 18 December 1778

From Jeremiah Wadsworth

Rariton [N.J.] Decr 18: 1778


Your Excellency will perceive by the inclosed that my prospects of flour in the middle department are far from being favorable.1 I hope, on Colo. Blaines arrival at Phila., to be informed much more particularly of his dependancies for supplies. Such accounts as I can collect of the matter shall be immediatly communicated to your Excellency. But I am not without fears that the inclosed representation is a just one. Should this be the case, it is by no means certain, I can furnish a sufficiency of flour to be transported to the northward, agreable to your Excellencys late proposal, to which I mentioned my being able to supply the flour, provided the Qr Mr General could transport it. I am your Excellencys most obt Srvt
