Phila. 25th May 1780
My Dear General
I was favored with yours of the 18th last evening—& will in consequence render myself in Camp the latter end of next week—when I shall esteem myself honored by any commands you may please to favor me with.
We have nothing new from Charlestown—the Investiture was compleated on the 28th Ultimo—all ranks of people are anxiously waiting the event, may it be favorable, & may your Excellency put a Glorious & happy period to the American War by the Capture of the Garrison of New York, is the Ultimate wish of Your most Obt & much Obliged Hume Sert
