Leaving Philadelphia, Washington pushed on to the junction of the Brandywine and Christiana Creek, and posted his men along the heights. August 25, Howe landed at the Head of Elk, and Washington threw out light parties to drive in cattle, carry off supplies, and annoy the enemy.

Filth, and passed the afternoon with music and dancing, were troubled by no divine misgivings. Then, too, the Lord of the way found no difficulty in easing the path of the gentler sort of pilgrims.

So He bid them look round about, and see if they could find anything profitable there.

And here also I took notice of what was very remarkable; the water of that river was lower at this time than ever I saw it in all my life, so he went over at last not much above wet-shod."
