9 oClock, evening of the 19th October 1781
[inserted - different hand: H.K to Washington]
I have just received my dear general an inaccurate report
of the Cannon & Mortars which are in Yorks, and which
amount to 170. Sixty five of which are brass The extreme
confusion in that place has prevented my officers being more
particular at present, but I hope tomorrow to render a more
certain account to your Excellency. Knowing Colonel Tilghmans
destination I thought even this impatient Sketch might be
of use. No course has been received of those at Glocester.
I am with great Respect
& affection Your Excellencys
His Excely General Washington
To His Ex. Gen. Washington
19th Octo. 1781.
