Head Qrs Octr 4th 1780
Your favor of the 15th Ulto reached my quarters during my late absence from the Army—I am exceedingly obliged by your care of the Case of Liqueurs committed to your charge by Mr Jay, as I am for that, which you so politely added. I have only to regret that they both suffered much by the roughness of the transportation. I am—Sir Yr Most Obt & Hble Ser.
