Your Letter to the Commander in Chief was received some time since, but for want of a judge Advocate to conduct a Court Martial an answer was delayed; since then the Adjt Genll has been requested to obtain some person to act in that Character, if this can be effected, your Trial may come on immediately, as it is his Excellency opinion that no person ought to be kept in arrest at the pleasure of the Arrestor. I am sir Your Most Obedt Servant.
