Dear Sir:

You will be pleased to halt your Horse and Foot ’till further
orders, wherever they may be when this reaches you. Should the Horse be
in Philada. and it should be found difficult to subsist them there, you
will consult the Board of War and remove them to any place which may be
found more convenient in the neighbourhood. A very few days will
probably determine whether you are to proceed further just now.

I am
&c.1
