To Timothy Taylor, 13 December 1799
Philaa. Der. 13th. 99
I have received your letter of the tenth instant.
Major Huntingdon has resigned his Commission, and is no longer a member of the army.
think I informed you of this I believe in a former letter which must have miscarried.
The recommendation of Sergeants as Cadets does not appear to me to be expedient at this early period of the Service.
