You want to leave tomorrow morning at five o'clock in the morning with the cavalry which you command in order to go to Williamsburg, confining yourself to the order to march which will be delivered to you by Mr. de Scheldon, you want to keep the hand to maintain order and discipline during all of the time of the march, the itinerary that Mr. de Scheldon will present to you will indicate to you all which must march in your train, I will not make any repetition to you in other regards, Sir, than commissioners of war will be charged with the policing of your front guard, and providing for your supplies.

I have the honor to be with a sincere attachment, Sir, your most humble and most obedient servant.

Viomenil

Keep yourself with strength and give thanks as soon as you have passed the [illegible].
