Head Quarters Newburgh 30th April 1782
Your two favors of yesterday, with their inclosures, were duly delivered to me.
I do not think any considerable alteration, need be made, respecting the out Posts, I approve your holding the Troops you mention, in readiness to support them; but it would not be eligable, to advance any more Artillery at present—The Detachments on the Lines, ought to be extremely vigilant.
I have written to Mr Sands, to furnish the Reserves, agreably to your requisition of the 6th of Feby last. and have no doubt of his compliance. I am Dr Sir Your most Obedt Servt
