Head Quarters Newburgh Feby 22nd 1783
I have recd you favor of this date, & have to inform you that there are some circumstances which render it inexpedient for a furlough to be granted to you at this Moment, in a few days (by the first of march I presume) you may expect the permission you sollicit.
As no Warrants for Pay or Subsestence are now given by me, it will be proper to make your Arrangements on that head with the Depy Pay Mastr Genl in such manner as that the money may be properly accounted for. I am with great regard Sir Your Most Obedt Servt.
