George Washington Papers

From George Washington to Stephen Moylan, 4 April 1781

Head Quarters New Windsor 4th April 1781.

Dear Sir

I have recd your favr of the 22d ulto from Lancaster—As the reasons for which I directed Majr Fauntleroy to make an exchange of Corps with Major Bull no longer exist I have now ordered him to remain with you and Bull to join the 1st.

I have written both to the Congress and to the Board of War and used every Argument to induce a speedy completion of the Regiments of Cavalry—They will be more than ever useful now the active scene is, in a measure, transferred to the southward.

You will be good enough, the first opportunity you have of writing to your Brother in France, to thank him for the present of Claret—It has not yet come to hand.

Be pleased to make Mrs Washingtons Compliments and mine to Mrs Moylan. I am &c.
