Sir

I inclose for your information a General Order issued yesterday which will be immediately published in the Gazettes. To authenticate the publication made in that way it may be expedient to promulgate the Order in Your Brigade in whatever manner may to yourself Seem most fit Permit me however to suggest that such an occasion in these times of perfect tranquility might not be thought sufficient to justify any expense to the Publick.

I am with high respect and esteem your Most Obt. Hble. Servt
