Your favor of the 9th inst. has been duly received. The Fleet mentioned in mine of the 6th instant has been seen standing N.N.E. so that we presume it is destined against some town of this Province or New Hampshire, or possibly gone to Quebec —A Gentleman of character here from Canada assures me he will meet with no opposition there —I am sorry other avocations will deprive me of the pleasure...

I was somewhat surprised to find, that in one...
I have been honored with your favor of the 30th ulto by Mr Trumbull —I sincerely wish this Camp could furnish a good Engineer—The Commisary Genl can inform you how excedingly deficient the Army is of Gentlemen skilled in that branch of business; and that most of the works which have been thrown up for the defence of our several Encampments have been planned by a few of the principal Officers...
I received your favor of the 6th inst. in which you give a detail of Dr Chiney’s case as it appeared before you and Council, in which nothing but the fair side of his character appears. You may be assured Sir that his tryal will be impartial, that no insidious designs of his inemies will have weight, and that it will give me much plasure to find he can acquit himself of the crimes he is...
The reason of my giving you the trouble of this, is the late extraordinary and reprehensible conduct of some of the Connecticut Troops—Some time ago, apprehending that they, or part of them might be inclined to go home when the time of their inlistment should be up, I applied to the Officers of the several Regiments, to know whether it would be agreeable to the men to continue till the first...
