It is from a diary but it is transcribed online here:

One interesting thing is that the writer refers to “Congress Bridge” as a destination. The only bridges out of Manhattan would have been the King’s Bridge and Dyckman’s Bridge. It would seem logical that the patriots would have renamed the King’s Bridge to something like “Congress Bridge.” Oddly though, the writer refers to both King’s Bridge and Congress Bridge, as if they are two different bridges.
