if they are not ordered to Fairfield by his Excellency General Washington . I should think it would be best to have them sent as near the army as they can go with safety, which is thirty miles nigher than you have ordered these. I only hint this that in case you should forward any thing more, to leave it discretionary, as none of our craft put into that place, unless specially ordered there. Any further commands from you shall be faithfully complied with by your humble servant. In haste,

WILLIAM COIT.
