To James McHenry, 5 November 1799
N York Novr. 5th. 1799
I transmit you the arrangement of relative rank which has been established for the fifteenth regiment.
Mess. Rudberg and Barret have been heretofore recommended to you as Lieutenants. Colonel Hunnewell is anxious that they
receive should receive Appointments.
Oliver Emerson and George Blake are proposed by Coll. Hunnewell as Cadets in his regiment and I woul⟨d⟩ recommend that the nomination be Speedily confirmed.
With great respect
