Letter from General Washington to General Sullivan

v5:758

GENERAL WASHINGTON TO GENERAL SULLIVAN.

Cambridge, April 1, 1776.

DEAR SIR: Enclosed you have a copy of a letter I received from Governour Cooke, to the contents of which I refer you.

General Greene will march with his Brigade, this day, for Providence; and if I find that the enemy are at Rhode-Island, I will soon join him. Governour Cooke will forward this to you, and will inform you whether this alarm is well-founded or not. If it is, you must repair to Providence with the troops under your command. If it is not, you will proceed on your march to New-York.

I am, sir, yours, &c.

GEORGE WASHINGTON.

To Brigadier-General Sullivan.
