GEN. JETHRO SUMNER TO GEN. GATES.

“If the Board of War finds that the time of Col. Jarvis and Col. Exum's regiments has expired, Col. Seawell's regiment will only remain of my command. This would leave me without command as soon as Gen. Smallwood joins the camp. If you have any command for one in the line I am of, I shall cheerfully receive your orders.”
