George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Robert Howe, 18 June 1780

Highlands 18th June 1780

Dear Sir

An Opportunity happening accidently, I take the Liberty of mentioning to your Excellency that some part of the provost Corps are absolutely necessary at this place—The resources from which we used to derive Surplies of Flour, are so much exhausted that very little is to be expected in this Quarter untill the Corps come in, which induces me to wish that further Surplies from the Southward could be forwarded to us—The Enemy are very Busy and all their Opperations indicate some important undertaking, I am preparing at every point for their reception, should they Honour me with a Visit; and am watching their motions by various and trusty Emissaries—I have the Honour to be with great respect Your Excellencys most Obedient H. Sert

R. Howe
