For the fact was Tarle ton had just got out of sight As Washington Rode up. Had the american cavalry continued their Pursuit fifteen minutes Lunger the remnant of Tho British troops could have been either captured or killed. The next the Battle a por Tion of the. Militia was despatched to Bury the dead. Three places Are now to be distinctly seen.
