I have been favoured with your letter of the 10th. instant—
In consequence of it, I have communicated to the Secy. of War, your recommendation of Mr. Mason as a Cadet in the 13th. Regt. of Infantry with my support.
I shall speedily write to you on the subject of the Soldier, deserter from Niagara—
With great esteem & respect I have the honor to be Sir yr. obedt. Servt.
