————————
Upon the whole it may be said that the day was unfortunate rather than injurious. We sustained no material loss +++++ The enemy are nothing the better by the event & our troops, who are not in the least dispirited by it, have gained what all young troops gain by being in actions.
From Camp near Pennypacker's Mills 5th October 1777
