[Note by General Washington.]

[22d October, 1776. — Wrote Governour Trumbull to order the troops intended for Fishkill, to come by the rear of our army at or near to White-Plains, to take orders. That General Clinton can' t be spared, and advising the Long-Island expedition to be given over if the troops are not on the very point of embarking, and that they should be moved this way, as they may be of material service in flanking the enemy, and the situation of our affairs calling for every assistance.]
