Your Excellency’s favor of the 14th of October reached me in a few days, and was replied to by the Post before the last, by some neglect however, the letter was left out of the Mail and remained in the Post Office until the Evening before the last Post should have gone, when it was, with all the Eastern Mail, stolen from thence; nor can I now send you a Copy, for all the Copies of my letters,...

I mean therefore, if the intention of that body is not more fully explained in a few days, to go prepared for the latter so soon as I can adjust matters here, and Mrs Washington’s health (for at...
Since my return from the Northward I have made particular enquiry into the state of the Boats which may be rendered fit for service on the Western Waters, and find the number very small that are capable of being repaired, the expence of effecting which & transporting them to Schenectady it is imagined will equal or exceed the cost of building new Ones at that place. I have also written by the...
