Writing to the Continental Congress in New York City on November 8th, General Washington wrote of Henry Knox, "The Council of Officers are Unanimously of the opinion, That the Command of the Artillery should no longer continue in Col: Gridley, and knowing of no person better qualified to supply his place , or whose Appointment will give more general satisfaction, have taken the liberty of recommending Henry Knox, Esqr to the considerations of the Congress."
