Your favor of the 23d. instant, I received by the Mail of Yesterday, and have accordingly appointed Saturday, the sixth of the next month, for a meeting of the Officers at New-Brunswick, for the purpose of making a nomination of a paymaster by a plurality of their voices—I could not consistently, with the expedition required, fix upon a later day, without interfering with the engagements,...
I have conferred with General Dayton on the subject of Yours of the 28th. and we agree in opinion, that the most convenient dimensions for hutts, would be a front of eighteen feet, by a depth of eighteen feet; one of these hutts, we conceive would be amply sufficient for fifteen men, which number agreably to the Regulations for the order and discipline of the troops of the United States:...
