I have it in contemplation to make a Journey as far to the Northward as Crown point, and consequently shall want some light Boats provided in Lake George—Mr Dimler A. Qr Mr Gen. has my Instructions to have them in readiness; I must request you will give him any assistance in your power, & that you will furnish such number of Men as may be necessary to facilitate the business—The remainder of the two Companies are to be held prepared to march at a moments notice, as I may probably have occasion for them. I am Sir &c.
