Being very confident of your attention to the several objects entrusted to your care during my absence; in reply to your Favor of the 28th, I have only to observe that I think it but reasonable that the Officers who have been prevented, by their attendance on the Court Martial for the tryal of Majr General McDougall, from visiting their Families, should be indulged with leave of absence for a...

Genl Lincoln on his Return from Boston, but have supposed that he took the necessary Measures to forward the recruitg service in that State. Indeed this appears to be the Case by Majr Pettingells Letter to you; who says that Lieut. Colo. Badlam was appointed, by Genl Lincolns orders, to...

You will direct Major Ashley to Order the Flag with M r Daking to return immediately to the Enemy’s Lines.
