In answer to my...
Major Barber, who now holds a Commission in the Line of the Army at large, informs me that if the State of New Jersey, to which he belongs, will grant him the Commission of Captain in one of their Regiments, he can prevail upon Captain Anderson to resign in his favor, and that he can obtain the consent of all the Captain’s junior to Capt. Anderson to his being admitted into his place—If Major...

I regret being obliged to inform Your Excellency, that I find myself, at this late period, very little stronger than I was when the Army first moved out of their Quarters.

I am informed that the first party which rendezvoused at Morris Town returned home for...

I applaud Sir! this Spirit, which gives me much Satisfaction in its Contemplation—The Gentlemen deserve my best Thanks for their Tenders of Service; which I beg leave to present to them thro’ the Hands of your Excellency.

I flatter myself that proper Measures have been taken before this Time to procure the Number of Men for Continental & Militia Service required by my Letter of the 27th of May. In the calculation which had been made at Weathersfield of the Aid of Militia which would be necessary to Support the Operation which we have in View, I included sixteen Hundred from Pensylvania; but that State having...
I am honored with your Excellency’s favor of the 1st Instant. Upon examining the state of Ammunition, with reference to the proposed operations, it is found impossible to furnish more than fifteen Thousand Musket Cartridges for the Use of the State of New Jersey; especially at a time, when, we are obliged to sollicit a loan of Powder from the Eastern States, and when, the supply of lead in...
