Description
The American States should blush at their tardy conduct, which exposes the few brave spirits composing the army to be sacrificed; the enemy have advanced in force under Knyphausen and burned Springfield; about seven hundred of our men with a few militia opposed them, but were driven back to Short Hills; they took post there, and the enemy retreated without attacking; the General has been too much engrossed for Mathews to speak with him on the subject of the exchange mentioned by Bell.
