Niagara 11th Decr. 1799


Agreeable to Orders from Colo Hamtramck I marched my Company from the Garrisson at Presque Isle and arrived at this place the 30th Ulto. since which they have been transfered to the 1st Regt. I shall proceed to New York as soon as the roads are passable, but at present it is almost imposable to travel by reason of the late heavy rains, & the water communication being closed for this season—

I am Sir Respectfully &c &c
