Letter to Captain Haskell at West Point from Joseph Danforth, Respecting Landowners, April 3, 1782
Letter from Joseph Danforth to Captain Haskell regarding being considerate of farmers' fields
As the Season is now arrived when Inhabitants are putting up their fences and preparing to improve their fields, the fences are not to be thrown down, or gates left open, nor are the troops to cross wheat fields or other enclosures, but keep the roads.
The officers are requested to inculcate this on the men, and see that it is duly observed.
