We have promoted Arnold, one Step this day, for his Vigilance, Activity, and Bravery,
in the late Affair at Connecticutt.1
—We shall make Huntingdon a Brigadier, I hope.2
We shall sleep in a whole Skin for some Time I think in Philadelphia, at least untill
a strong Reinforcement arrives.
I want to learn, where Sir William Erskine with his Two Thousand Men, went after his
Exploit at Danbury.—Perhaps to Newport.
