Summary McHenry has directed Major Cushing to join the army only if he has accurately represented his case. His furlough should be limited to the time required to regain his health and, after its expiration, he should either perform his duties at camp or resign. The scheme for the new arrangement of the army should soon be ready. McHenry hopes that Washington has arrived safely at Mount Vernon so that he can rest.
