These papers are copies in what appears to be a 19th century hand, on 321 pages of a blank book, of selections from the orderly books and a letter book of General John Glover. The military orders range in date from June 29, 1775 to October 14, 1778 (pp. 1-233) and from August 3, 1781 to November 25, 1781 (pp. 263-321). The letter book occupies thirty pages and is bound in the center of the volume. It contains 35 letters all dated between 16 and 30 September 1777. With the exception of two letters to General Glover's mother and his brother, all are directed to military officers. Many of the letters are written to General George Washington.
