To Ebenezer Stevens, 25 October 1799
New-York Oct. 25th. 1799—
I am informed that a Packet with a party of the 13th. Regiment on board, has run a shore at Hell-Gate—if any assistance be yet necessary, in order to forward them to their destination, you will please to give it.
With great consideration I am Sir yr. obedt. servt.
