Head Quarters Decr 29th 1782
You will please to take immediate measures to dissolve the chain of Dragoons, and discharge the Expresses stationed between this and Boston; assuring them and the People who have furnished Provisions & Forage that the Accounts will be paid as soon as they can be sent to Philadelphia and the Money obtained—Sheldon’s Dragoons are to join their Corps.
An accurate state of the Expences properly attested will be wanted immediately to be transmitted to the Minister of France. I am Sir Your Most Obedient Servant
