To Aaron Ogden, 5 April 1799
New York April 5th. 99
I have received yours of the 28th March. ⟨—⟩ think with you that it is better to postpone
the recommendations for Quarter Master and Adjutant any decision on the points you have mentioned untill after the meeting of the Court Martial at which your officers are to attend.
