Head Quarters New Windsor 24th June 1781
Since writing you last, I have very luckily found the Books I had supposed to be lost. I shall not therefore want those which I desired you to procure, as the Work however may possibly be begun, you will be pleased to receive & forward to me so many as may be already finished, & stop the Execution of the Remainder as soon as may be. I am Sir Your most obedient Servant
