“At Mrs. Prevost’s we found some fair refuges from New York who were on a visit to the lady of the Hermitage. With them we talked and walked and laughed and danced and gallanted away the leisure hours of four days and four nights and would have gallanted and danced and laughed and talked and walked with them until now, had not the General given orders for our departure.”

-James McHenry, July 1778
