Dr. Genl.

This will be handed to you by Doctor Johnson, who will give an account of my situation and what time you may expect me. I have been exceeding ill since I saw you, and Indeed Dispaired of joining the army this fall, but have recovered amasingly, and will without doubt set out in a fortnight nothing stops me but a pain in my back & loins, of which I seem to recover fast by means of the cold bath. I suffered much anxity in being prevented from Joining the army according to your expectation, but must make up my lost time when I get thare. I have no news but what Doctr. Johnson can give; must, therefore, refer you to him.

I have the honor to be,
Your obedt. Hble. servt.,
DANL. MORGAN.
M. Genl. Gates.
