Colonel Hazen speaking the French language, and having a considerable...
LS : Château de Ramezay Museum, Montreal We desire that you will shew to Mrs. Walker every civility in your power and facilitate her on her way to Philadelphia; the fear of cruel treatment from the enemy on account of the strong attachment to, and zeal of her husband in the cause of the united Colonies induces her to depart precipitately from her home; and to undergo the fatigues of a long and...
ALS : New York Public Library The enclos’d from the other two Commissioners to me is in answer to a few Lines I wrote them from the Ferry after I had taken leave of them, and had in the mean time convers’d with Mr. Price, who told me the other Regiments coming into Canada brought with them only 10 Days Provision. Paterson’s I left at La Prairie, no Boats to take them over. It was with the...
ALS : New York Public Library We arrived here safe yesterday Evening, in your Post Chaise driven by Lewis. I was unwilling to give so much Trouble, and would have borrowed your Sulkey, and driven myself: but good Mrs. Schuyler insisted on a full Compliance with your Pleasure, as signify’d in your Letter, and I was oblig’d to submit; which I was afterwards very glad of, part of the Road being...
ALS : New York Public Library The Congress have appointed three Commissioners to go to Canada, of which Number I have the Honour to be one. We purpose setting out some day this Week.

ALS : Massachusetts Historical Society Your Letter to the President of the Congress, arrived here just now by an Express from Albany, and is brought to me, the Congress being adjourn’d and all the Members out of town but my self.

Since I had the pleasure of writing you last an unexpected change has taken place in my situation. I am no longer a member of the General’s family. This information will surprise you and you will be more surprised at the manner of my ceasing to be so and the manner of the change will surprise you more. —Two day ago The General was coming up stairs and I was going down and I passed each other...

Upon a presumption that a part of the intended operations against the Indians will be carried on by a Body of Men from the Waters of the Susquehannah it will be necessary to be well informed of the Situation of the principal Villages of the hostile tribes and the number of fighting Men that each may contain. We will suppose Chemung on the Cayuga Branch the first post to be attacked and...
I received last night your favour of the 8th Instant. I hope General Clinton is now moving by the Routes and according to the Orders he has received from General Sullivan, under whose command he has been entirely placed for some time past—and of which I advised him by Two different conveyances, besides writing to him through the hands of General Sullivan: As it was conceived best, that the...
Since mine of this Date, in order the more effectually to enable you to give the Enemy a seasonable Check, I have come to a Resolution to send a further Reinforcement and have accordingly directed Genl Putnam immediately to forward General Glover’s Brigade to you. I have been informed of a fresh Arrival of Tents at Peek’s Kill, and have desired that every one which can possibly be spared from...
Since Writing the Letter herewith, I received a Copy of a Letter from General Howe, transmitted me by General McDougall, in which he very modestly makes a Proposition for Major Edmisstons being permitted to go to Canada. Your own Reflections will immediately convince You of the Impropriety of Complying with It, and confirm what I before suggested, that the whole has been a Contrivance for...
Congress having been pleased to request My Attendance at Philadelphia to advise with them on the Situation of our Affairs, & of such Measures as may be Necessary to adopt for this Campaign, I had got thus far on my Journey, where I called to View the Ground & such Places on Staten Island contiguous to It, which may be proper for Works of Defence, when Your Favor of the 16th instant, with Its...
On Monday I received your Favor of the 16th inst. with Its several Inclosures. The Time You were in Treaty I can readily conceive, was sufficiently irksome & disagreeable. However, If the Good Consequences Which You meant should be produced from It, You will think It was extremely well spent. General Carlton’s Orders for their Indecent, Illiberal Scurrility, are equal If not superior to any...
By a Letter from Genl Hand of the 13th, which came to hand to day, I received the disagreable intelligence that the Enemy had proceeded to the settlement of Cherry Valley—surprised and slain Colonel Alden, who was stationed there and committed many outrages. I wish it may not turn out, that the whole of his Regimt has been cut off, as the accounts seem to have left matters in a very doubtful &...

Smiths Clove [ New York ] July 22, 1777. Is sending Brigadier General John Glover’s brigade to reinforce Schuyler. Df , in writing of H, George Washington Papers, Library of Congress. Although the partially erased signature of H can be seen on the draft, this is without a doubt a Washington letter.
I received Your Favor of the 27th Ulto Yesterday Evening with Its several Enclosures, & in Part Answer thereto refer You to mine of the 29th which probably will have come to Hand e’re now, But lest any Accident has prevented It, I will again inform You that in Obedience to an Order of Congress I have detached six more Regiments under General Sullivan in Addition to those with General Thompson,...
Your Favors of the 14th 17. 20 & 24th have been duly received, & I am extremely happy to find that You have discovered & apprehended some of the Ring leaders of a dangerous Plot, You say, was forming in the Neighbourhood of Albany. Nor do I hear with little Pleasure of the Harmony & Good Agreement between You & General Gates, knowing how Essential they are to the Service. Agreeable to Your...
I was favored with Yours of the 10th instant with Its several Inclosures. The stroke meditating by the Indians against our Frontier Inhabitants, is what I have long thought would happen, as they were not Engaged in our Interest; But I am in full Hopes You will be able to repel their hostile Designs & Convince them of their Imprudence in Joining our Enemies without the least Cause of Quarrell....
I had closed the within letter, but had retained it for a conveyance when I received yours of the 24th ultimo. The disposition of the Cayugas to peace at this juncture is rather embarrassing—and would appear to proceed more from fear, than a desire of permanent friendship. They dread operations of which they must have heard, and wish to escape their effects. On the whole, however it may be...
I have been duly favoured with your letters of the 16th and 26th of last month, with their inclosures. I am sorry to observe, that the Disposition of the Indian nations is not generally so favourable, as could be wished; but it is not to be wondered at, when we consider, the advantages the enemy possess over us, in the means of supplying their wants, and rewarding their friendships. I doubt...
Your Favors of the 20th & 25th with their several Inclosures I received this Morning. The Letters for Congress with the Rest of the Papers I shall transmit them by the Earliest Opportunity. I cannot conceive That their Resolution of the 14th was Calculated or designed in the smallest Degree to give You Offence. The Application for Stores had been made, as a Requisition from General Gates,...
Your much esteemed Favour of the 22d Ultimo covering Colonel Arnold’s Letter, with a Copy of one to General Montgomery, and of his to you I received Yesterday Morning. It gave me the highest Satisfaction to hear of Colonel Arnold’s being at point Levi, with his Men in great Spirits after their long and fatiguing March, attended with almost insuperable Difficulties, and the discouraging...
Your Favor of the 20th Ult: came safely to Hand, and I should have dispatched the Express much sooner, but Colo. Arnold’s Expedition is so connected with your operations that I thought it most proper to detain him till I could give you the fullest account of his progress. This Morning the Express I sent him returned and the Inclosure No. 1. is a Copy of his Letter to me. No. 2. is a Copy of a...
Congress seem to have a strong desire to undertake an Expedition against Canada. The practicability, of it depends, upon the employment the Enemy intend to give us on the Sea board next Campaign—on their strength in Canada—the state of our resources—& other circumstances—some of which are too much buried in obscurity—others too much in the field of conjecture to form any decisive opinion of at...
I have received your Favor of 31st august and am much engaged in sending off the Detachmt under Col: Arnold upon the Plan contained in mine of the 20th Ultimo: A Variety of Obstacles have retarded us since the Express returned with your’s of the 27th August from Albany, but we are now in such Forwardness that I expect they will set out by Sunday next at farthest. I shall take Care in my...
It is of the greatest Importance to the Safety of a Country, involved in a defensive War, to endeavour to draw their Troops together, at some post, at the opening of a Campaign, so Central to the Theatre of War, that they may be sent to the Support of any Part of the Country, the Enemy may direct their Motions against. It is a Military Observation strongly supported by Experience, that “a...
Yesterday a Deputation from the Provincial Congress of New Hampshire attended me with a Request that three Companies raised in that province, and now posted on Connecticut River at and between the two Cohhess commanded by Capts. Timothy Reedle, James Osgood & John Parker might be continued for the Security of the Frontiers of that Province on the Continental Establishment. As it did not appear...
Your Favor of the 1st Instant I received last Night—Those of the 26h & 28th Ultimo came safe to Hand and in due Order. As Congress have advised you of their Inclination that you should come to Head Quarters, and as it is probable you will be on your Way when this reaches you I presume it unnecessary for me to enlarge upon the Subject of your several Letters or to add more at this Time than...
I this day receivd your favor of the 27th ultmo with a Letter from General Arnold. the enemy have quitted this Harbour Last week, we have no Certain account of their destination it is generally thought they are gon to Halifax if this shoud prove true, it is probable, they will attempt to penetrate into Canada, when the Communication by the River St Lawrence is open—by a Late Letter I received...
Congress having disapproved the Proceedings of the Commissioners at Albany on the 13th instant, transmitted them in my Letter of the 21st, so far as they relate to raising two Companies of Mohikander & stockbridge Indians; in Compliance with their Resolve, a Copy of which is inclosed, I am to request You to put the most Early & speedy Stop to the same. The Honble President observes in his...
