To Lieutt Colo. Stephen of the Virga Regimt—Rays Town Sir Camp at Fort Cumberland 16th July 1758. Your favours of the 13th and 14th lye before me to answer. I have Orderd the Paymaster, and Quarter Master, to make use of the Escort that attends Governor Glen, and desire you will cause them to return to this place as soon as possible. The Quarter Master brings you all the stuff he has for...
Orders for Lt Colo. Stephen, of the Virginia Regiment. Sr John St Clair having, by virtue of a Power from the Commander in Chief for the southern district, put the Troops of this Colony under marching Orders —and at the same time thought it necessary, that I should wait upon the President, to settle the Affairs of the two Virginia Regiments —You are therefore—if no contradictory Orders come...
To Lt Colonel Stephen. Sir [Fort Loudoun] April 24th 1758. I have this instant, and not before, received Orders from the President to complete the Regiment under my command. But, as no money is yet come for that salutary purpose, I am at a loss how to act. However, that no time may be lost, or blame laid at my door ; I desire that you will send as many officers on this Service as can be spared...
You are to remain with the Garrison at this place, ’till the maryland troops shall relieve you: As soon after as possible you are to march the virginia Troops to Fort Loudoun—taking care to carry all the virginia stores to that place, except a few tools which shou’d be sent to the Branch. But, if it shou’d so happen that there do not come waggons enough to carry off the whole at once; You must...
Last night I returned from a very long and troublesome jaunt on the Frontiers, as far as Mayo; where affairs seem to be in a dangerous situation: and to add to our misfortunes, I find our neighbourhood here on the wing—you and your Garrison, in great distress & danger. The Enemy ravaging the country about Conogochieg, stony-run, and South-Branch—Loud and general complaints for protection—few...
I arrived here last night, and observe your several letters concerning your present situation; and must acknowledge I have the greatest apprehensions of your danger: but as I have frequently expressed them to the Governor, and he has returned me no satisfactory answer—and know the determination of the Assembly & Committee is against improving that Fort: I can not give any orders as to your...
Yours of the 17th & 23d August I received —Mr Boyd is just returned from Williamsburg, settling his accompts, and getting a supply of cash—He will be with you to pay you off. I am in hopes our men for the future will be better satisfied, as the Committee have allowed them 8d. per day and their clothes, without any stoppages or deductions. The Governor expects this encouragement will engage the...
Yours of the 20th ultimo and 1st instant, I have just received. I am sorry to hear you even mention recalling Captain McKenzie from his Post. It must have been an extraordinary occasion that would have reconciled me to that proceeding; which wou’d have left Cox’s, Pearsalls and Kirkendalls Forts quite defenceless—to strengthen a Garrison which was only intended to defend the Stores, and might...
Letter not found: to Adam Stephen, 4 Aug. 1756. On 5 Aug. 1756 GW wrote to Stephen: “Yesterday I wrote you.”
When I wrote to you last, I expected to have been at Fort Cumberland ere this; but the multiplicity of business in which I am engaged, will prevent me now until my return from Williamsburgh; which may be sometime hence: as I wait, at this place, the arrival of an association of Gentlemen; who are, I am told by the Governor, to point out the places for Forts to be built on our Frontiers. I am...
