Your dedication to not only the liberation of the Colonies from British rule, but the emancipation of slaves as well is appreciated and acknowledged by many. Your heroic efforts on the field of battle are admirable and your contribution to the efforts abroad as well as in service to Washington while serving as Aide de Campe will not be forgotten.

You will be remembered, always.
