I received your letter of the 28th Ultimo with its inclosure containing the final determination of the friendly Indians. The order for your amunition has been sent forward from Philadelphia under cover to yourself; and I would suppose it come to hand before this time. The general orders of the 7th 9th and 12th Inst. which accompany this, will point out the steps which are to be taken for...
I have received several of your favors lately, but having sent them up to New Windsor among my papers, I cannot answer them particularly—From the general tenor of them—I have thought it best to order the remainder of your line up to Albany to be stationed there—at Schenectady—and as such intermediate posts between that and Fort schuyler as may secure the communication.
