Royal Garrison Battalion
New York August 8th 1779
I have received your Letters, and answered most of them; but I find by some strange fatality none of mine to Governor BROWNE, Captain GRANT or yourself have been received.
Captain GRANT’s behaviour requiring Explanasion, I have long since desired him to give up the Command to you & repair to this place;
I take it for granted he will leave Providence immediately, it is therefore necessary that you should remain there ‘till I can Send and Officer to relieve you.
You will find by Lord RAWDON’s Letter in what particular I think Captain GRANT has not conducted himself properly towards Governor BROWNE, and will regulate yourself accordingly.
I am &c.
