Colonel Peck the Martial at Providence hath applyed to me for a guard to take charge of some French Prisoners there. I have also received an application from Major Jackson of the 2d Regiment of Arts. & Engineers at Fort Wolcott to relieve a detachment of his men doing that duty, intimating, as he had other duty for them, a doubt of the propriety of their doing such duty. As by a late general...

Since my communication on the subject of the relative rank of my officers, I have become considerably acquainted with them. On a review of the arrangement proposed—If the apparent military Merits of my officers were to be my guide—I should propose the advancement of Captain Mackay to number five or Six among the Captains. And from some hints, I hear he has droped, I suspect he will not serve,...
