From George Washington to John Glover, 9 May 1781

Head Quarters New Windsor May 9th 1781

Dear Sir

As some of the Recruits begin to arrive, & more may be daily expected, & as the season for opening the Campaign is fast approaching; it behoves every Officer, particularly every one of high rank, to be with the Troops of his Command at this Moment to organize, discipline, & prepare them for the field—I shall expect therefore, that you will commence your return to the Army, as soon as it is possible to be done, after the receipt of this Letter—I am Dear Sir Your Most Obedient Servant.
