Head Quarters New Windsor June 17th 1781
Being fully sensible that your knowledge of the Western Parts of the Sound is more accurate, than that of any other Person, I should be extremely glad to see you on that account, especially as there are many questions which I would wish to ask, that cannot be answered except in conversation.
I have therefore to request (if your business will possibly admit) that you will have the goodness to come to this Place as soon as you can conveniently. I am Sir Your Very Hble Servant.
