Rocky hill 15 Octob[er] 1783
By the last Post I was favor[e]d with your Letter of the
5th Instant and I take the earliest Opportunity to acquaint
you of my compliance with your request.
Tho’ I have ever been averse to Officers going to New
York on every slight pretext, I was always ready to grant
my permission when real business required their presence.
With great regard
I am D[ea]r Sir
Your Most Obedient
Major Gen[era]l McDougall
