v6:1276

GOVERNOUR TRUMBULL TO COLONEL SEYMOUR.

Lebanon, July 4, 1776.

SIR: I have your letter of the 4th instant, and observe the contents. If your circumstances are such that you cannot proceed with the troops, the command will naturally devolve on Major Hart as first Major. You will deliver your instructions to him, and the money you have received for the support of the troops, and use your influence to animate the men and hasten their march.

To Colonel Seymour.
