The Commander in Chief wishes it may be ascertained this day, how many Boats are, or may be actually fit for service on the Western Waters—for if there are ten or More that can be got in readiness in a few days, His Excellency proposes that they should be carried to the Mowhawk River as soon as possible, because some Boats will be wanted there, sooner than any can be compleated which may be contracted for hereafter—An Answer is requested as early as may be. I am Sir Your Most Obedt Servt
