Head Quarters New Windsor 11th May 1781.
I have given orders to have Mr Adam the Dy Commy of Prisoner’s at Elizabeth Town arrested and brought to trial upon some charges of mal conduct which have been exhibited against him to Congress. You will therefore proceed to Elizabeth Town and remain there untill the matter shall be determined, or untill Mr skinners return from Philada. You will permit Major de Meibom and Ensign de Meibom who are at Chatham to return to New York upon parole, till exchanged or called for.
You will be pleased to take care of the letters for Genl Robertson—Genl Reidesel and Colo. Dayton. The two first you will send by a Flag. I am &c.
