    This letter, written on 13 November 1775 from the Continental Army's headquarters in Cambridge, from Robert Harrison to Col. Loammi Baldwin in Chelsea grants permission to distribute livestock such as oxen and milch cows. Harrison, an aide-de-camp of General George Washington, cautions Baldwin of the importance that the livestock not fall into the hands of the British soldiers.
