George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Jedediah Huntington, 13 May 1780

Head Qrs May 13. 1780.

Dear Sir,

General Maxwell with the Brigade under his command comes to relieve you, to whom You will be pleased to give a Copy of the Instructions you have received and such information with respect to Guards &c. as You may deem material. When You are relieved You will march with Your troops to Camp and either occupy their own Huts or those which the Maryland Troops have left, as may be most agreable. It is a point which is left entirely with Yourselves; but if the Maryland Huts are equally good and convenient, it would make our situation rather more compact if they were to be possessed. It will be necessary, in either case, to send up your Quarter Master to have the Huts put in some order. I am, Dr Sir, with Yr Most Obedt &c.

G. Washington.
