3358. GATES (General Horatio) Battle of Camden.—

Good dispositions and ar
rangements will not do without a certain degree
of bravery and discipline in those who are
to carry them into execution. This, the men
whom you commanded, or the greater part of
them at least, unfortunately wanted on that
particular occasion. [207] I have not a doubt but
that, on a fair enquiry, the returning justice
of your countrymen will remind them of Saratoga,
and induce them to recognize your merits.—
To General Gates. Washington ed. i, 314. Ford ed., iii, 52.
(M. 1781)
