I believe, there can be no doubt, but a fair construction of the 6th. Section of the “act for the better organizing of the troops of the United States” will warrant the appointment of officers from the line to act as assistants, to the principals of the Quarter-Master Generals department, in the several military districts; and that from this source, gentlemen of more respectability and more...
Permit me to remind you, that the supplies of wood for the Brigade at the Cantonment, near the Scotch plains have been made up to the 15th. of the present month, and not farther, the sooner orders may be received, for a farther supply, the greater will be the time, within which I may use endeavours to make contracts for lower sums, than I have been oblidged, from necessity to give. I have the...
I was yesterday at the Cantonment near the Scotch plains, and find that a small magazine is always necessary to be in the Store of the Brigade Quarter Master, for a variety of incidental purposes such as the making of Coffins berths for recruits which have lately arrived and are arriving, small window shutters for apertures in the rear of the rooms to be cut out for the purpose of ventilation,...
Permit me to solicit your application for some promotions in the 11th. regiment—Should the gentlemen, in whose behalf I address you, be disappointed in their expectations, I apprehend, that they may feel themselves destitute of that hope of advancement, which was an inducement for their entering into service, and an incitement, for the zealous discharge of its duties. The following is the...

Section of the "Act for better organizing of the troops of the United States" provides, that no officer shall be appointed Quarter Master of Brigade, who, when appointed, shall be of a rank higher than that of a first Lieutenant, and that under this consideration Captain...
I have lately learned, that Captain Cole of the 11th regiment, has solicited from you, that his resignation might be accepted—he had previously notified me by letter of an intention to resign on the first day of the present month, since which he has not addressed me—believing, however, that he considered his communication to me, as sufficiently formal, I have to join him, in his request, that...
Pursuant to yours of the 28th. Ultimo, I have made enquiry in the vicinity of the Cantonment, near the Scotch plains, for a house, or houses, that might be suitable, for the accomodation of sick, but cannot find that any such are vacant, or to be procured. I have calculated the expence of building for each regiment, an hospital of 34 feet, in length, and 20 feet in width, enclosed and covered...
At the time, when I received at your Office, an arrangement of rank, for the Captains and subalterns, of the Eleventh -regiment, I mentioned that Captain Bowman, who had then lately joined the regiment, from the recruiting service, wished to submit to you, thro’ me, a claim to be arranged as the eldest Captain, upon the principle of his having been, at the end of the revolutionary war, senior...
I embrace the moment, while you are at the seat of Government, to forward to you, the enclosed, as a proposed arrangement of rank for the company Officers of the 11th. regiment in which Major Shute and myself, (being the only field Officers of the regiment between whom a consultation has been possible,) entirely agree. I choose this moment, the more especially, as General Dayton, who is well...
I yesterday received your favor of the 3d. instant and beg you to be assured, that any employment, which your arrangements may have assigned me, shall be zealously undertaken and faithfully executed to the extent of my abilities, at the same time, it is proper for me, to express my apprehensions, that the result will not, in any other particulars, justify the confidence with which you have...
