Head Quarters 24 July 1780
I received your favor of the 21st this morning.
With respect to its contents, I have directed Major Genl Howe to order on the Massachusetts & New Hampshire Militia as they shall arrive, to Fish kill, or the most elegible place in its vicinity on other side the river—I have also directed as claverac is considered as a place of rendezvous, to have a small deposit of provisions at this post for temporary purposes. I am Dr Sr Yr &c.
