Head Quarters near Dobbs Ferry Tuesday August 7. 1781
For the Day Tomorrow
Major General Lincoln
For Picquet Major Smith
Inspector Captain Robinson
The officers commanding Wings will direct the slaughtering places of the several brigades to be removed as far as they possibly can be consistent with the convenience and safety from the Line of Encampment.
The Vaults are to be regularly covered every day and all bones and putrid meat burned or buried, in short nothing which can contribute to the wholesomeness of the Camp ought to be neglected at this Season.
It is expected that the officers of Police will particularly attend to the execution of these orders.
