To Col. JAMES DELANCEY, and the Corps of


PERMIT me to return you many thanks for the honor you have done me in your address; and to assure you that I can in no degree, rate my services with the merits of your corps, so fully displayed during this winter, in protecting the persons and properties of the defenceless, by repelling the predatory incursions of the rebels, and in your readiness at all times, to join his Majesty’s troops in attacking the enemy.

It is with great concern, my health did not permit me to remain, in a command so honourable, to the close of the winter; but I have the less to regret, when I find myself succeeded by so worthy and respectable a character, as Major General de BOSE; who has been witness to the good behaviour and cheerful, necessary exertions of all the corps, employed at the posts of the lines, during this most severe season.

I have the honour to be,

With the greatest regard,
Your most obedient,
Humble Servant,

New-York, April 10, 1780.
