I have this Moment received a Letter from General Learned, Copy whereof I do myself the Honor to inclose. I am extremely apprehensive that the greater part of the Garrisons of Tyonderoga and Mount Independance is in the Enemy’s power and if they make a push they may do what they please, as I have not above 700 Continental Troops to oppose them with, and, I fear, not above twice that Number of...

A few days after the receipt of your favor covering letters for the Supervizor of Vermont and Mr Jacob Cuyler I wrote you and my Eliza, but as I have not had a line from you since I fear my letters have not come to hand. I entreated Eliza to let me know when she would set out from Philadelphia for this place, that I might engage a good and discreet master of an Albany Sloop to bring her to...
I do myself the Honor to enclose your Excellency a Letter to Congress, under flying Seal—The Variety of Affairs which claim my Attention do not permit me Time to communicate to your Excellency and Congress seperately such Information, as it may be necessary both should know; you will therefore please to excuse the Mode I take. Our Numbers are so few to the Northward; and we have so little...
By Mr Bennet, who arrived Yesterday, I was honored with your Excellency’s very obliging Favor of the 30th Ultimo. I should have been much happier than I am if the Resolutions of Congress of the 25th Ultimo had not put it out of my power to be in Sentiment with you on the Resolution of the 14th of the same Month. Without advising me that I am no longer in Command, they resolve that “Mr Stockden...
Your two favors the one advising me of the Beautrice and the other Covering letters from my Children in Europe I have had the pleasure to receive. Mrs. Schuyler has been much indisposed since my last. We began to be very apprehensive of her situation but our fears are vanished with the untoward Symptoms which occasioned them. She is now so well as to go abroad and we have well grounded hopes...
Permit me to refer your Excellency to the inclosed Letter to Congress and the papers it contains, for Information from this Quarter.

May Heaven still continue to smile on our Arms, until We have obtained that...
I did not receive the letter you did me the honor to address of the 25th ult:, until it was too late, to acknowledge its receipt, by the return of the post who brought it. On the Objects to be ascertained, so great a diversity of Opinion prevails, even amongst the best informed, that it seems requisite, the decision in every instance, should be the result, of what has really occured, or at...
The mail which was taken a few days ago at Hampton has probably deprived me of the pleasure of a line from you.

It is difficult to judge with precision of your prospects at this...

Your favors of the 21st & 30th ult: I had the pleasure to receive a few days ago. The reward refused by the Pensylvania line evinces a becoming sense of propriety & gallantry. What might not our soldiery be brought to if properly fed, paid and cloathed. Mr De Grandchain delivered me your favor; he and Colo Wadsworth have had beds here and those attentions which your recommendations will always...
We all arrived in good health at two O’Clock yesterday afternoon, the passage would have been perfectly agreable had It not been alloyed by the reflection that we had parted from friends so dear to us.

Since my arrival here Your Old Gray Horse suddenly departed this life. He was in high order and good health apparently, but a few days before. The black is thin and I believe too aged or too Infirm for future service. The two Substitutes are good, one in very fine order and the portmanteau horse strong and capable of good Service, but do not order them down until you can find forrage in plenty...
An opportunity offers, and Surely I ought not to let It pass without Intreating you to Accept the warmest Acknowledgements of a grateful heart for an Attention which has afforded me the first of pleasures as It was Strongly Stamped with the Marks of Friendship.

Your favor of the 20 th Instant I recieved on the 26 th . and I have not been Able to Snatch a moment to give you a line in answer. General Scott I am Informed has a majority of votes for the Chair, If so he has played his Cards better than was Expected. The Enemy have opened the Ball in every Quarter.

Last Night Colonel Clinton arrived and brought me the inclosed, by which I find the Note alluded to in mine of Yesterday was intended for me —I shall answer the Gentlemen on the Subject of the Gundalo to Day—If the Account given by McChord be true it is much to be lamented that the Siege of Quebec could not have been immediately reassumed. The honorable Commissioners I suppose had not yet...
I am honored with your Favor of the 24h Instant, Which I received half an Hour ago having just arrived from Moses Creek, where I keep my Quarters.

Yesterday I was honored with Your Excellency’s favor of the 21st Instant. Before my last Lieut. McLallen who was under an Arrest had privately left Albany and is supposed to be Gone towards Boston. Lt Haasbrook who Accompanied him to Oswegetchie I am Informed is an Intelligent young man I therfore requested Colo. V. Schaick to send him with the party to explore the Country In Consequence of...
It appears to us that Effectually to Check the Incursions of the Enemy on our Frontiers, would require a force much superior to that which your Excellency has pointed at in your Letters to us, and a Season less Severe than the present, but we conceive It would render the Savages less Inclined to continue their Hostilities against us, If they should find us Able to penetrate to some of their...
Yesterday I received Mr Harrison’s Letter of the 18th Instant, respecting the Stockbridge Indians —They have all left the Army in the Course of the last Week and are returned Home—I have not had a Line from General Gates since the 16th —The British Army under the Command of General Carlton were at Crown point on Monday last, and I suppose will make an Attempt on Tyonderoga in a few Days, if...
Mrs. Schuyler Catherine & myself arrived here on Sunday, in good health, Mrs. Church and her Children we left at My Son Rensselaers. They will be here today, and were all well. A frenchman at Quebec trod on my lame leg and bruised it greatly.

In a letter from Mrs. Church of tuesday last she mentions that my dear Eliza had been very much indisposed, but was better. as no mention is made of the disorder with which she has been afflicted, we apprehend that she has miscarryed, we are extremely anxious for further Accounts and pray they may be such as shall do away our apprehensions. The Regents of the university have directed their...

By the unanimous advice of all the General Officers, I have moved the Army to this place—We propose to fortify our Camp in Hopes that Reinforcements may enable us to keep our Ground and prevent the Enemy from penetrating farther into the Country; but if I should be asked from whence I expect Reinforcements, I should be at a Loss for an Answer not having heard a Word from the Massachusetts on...
