Loyal Refugee Volunteers
Approbation of Commander in Chief

The following Approbation was signified to Col. CUYLER by the Adjutant-General;

Head-Quarters, July 21, 1780


THE Commander in Chief admiring the Gallantry of the Refugees, who in such small Numbers defended their Post against so very considerable a Corps, and withstood both their Cannonade and Assault: desires his very particular Acknowledgement of their Merit may be testified to them.

His Excellency requests you will give in a Return of the Numbers present at this spirited Defence, that he may give Directions for uniform Cloathing and Hats being given them from the Inspector General's Office.

In future your Requisition of Ammunition will be valid with the Ordnance.

I have the Honour to be,
Sir, your most obedient,
and most humble Servant,

The New-York Gazette and the Weekly Mercury, July 24th, 1780.
