He is calm and collected, but very determined.

December 26, 2011

Dec. 26, 3 a. m. — I am writing in the ferry house. The troops are all over, and the boats have gone back for the artillery. We are three ours behind the set time. Glover’s men have had a hard time to force the boats through the floating ice with the snow drifting in their faces. I never have seen Washington so determined as he is now. He stands on the bank of the river, wrapped in his cloak, superintending the landing of his troops. He is calm and collected, but very determined. The storm is changing to sleet, and cuts like a knife. The last cannon is being landed, and we are ready to mount our horses.
