Albany [ New York ] October 10, 1780 . Is still confined to his room with gout. Reports that British forces “were collected at St Johns to make separate attacks on the Grants, Saratoga and the Mohawk river.” ALS , Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress.
The mail which was taken a few days ago at Hampton has probably deprived me of the pleasure of a line from you. We are advised by a letter from Mr Carter that General Washington embarked with all except the rear division of the french at the head of Elk on the 8th Instant, hence I hope you are now operating against Cornwallis. 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...
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...
Yesterday I received your favor of the 16th. Instant. It affords me pleasure to learn that the Pensylvania line is reduced to order, but we in this quarter are on the point of experiencing a similar commotion. Two regiments threaten to march to Head quarters unless some money is paid them, the certificates for the depreciation expedited, and in future better supplied with provisions. Yesterday...
Your favor of the 12 Inst. I had the pleasure to receive last night. Major Carlton as you will have heard has been down to the vicinity of this place at the head of Eight hundred British about two hundred Inlisted tories and as many Indians. Fort Ann and Fort George fell into his hands, he burnt Kings & Queens borough townships and the north part of this district to within five miles of my...
I am very apprehensive the unhappy event mentioned in your favor of the 5th Instant will draw very serious consequences in its train. It will certainly much embarrass us, and probably retard the termination of the war. It will however be attended with one good, the adherents in Congress to the Gallant commander will not have it any longer in their power to play him off against the General....
Your favor covering copies of the letters which passed between the General and you I received on friday last at Saratoga, which I left somewhat indisposed on Sunday and arrived in the Evening. The fatigue of the Journey increased my disorder which is the quinsey with so much rapidity that before Tuesday morning I was twice bled to prevent suffocation. The Inflammation is subsiding and I have...
Your favor of the 17th I received on that day. That of the 13th has taken a tour to Albany and was delivered me this moment, with one Inclosed for Betsy. Commissioners will be appointed to meet the Eastern Convention. I believe Judge Hubbard, Mr Benson the Attorney General and myself will go, the two Gentlemen I have mentioned are as deeply Impressed as men can be with the necessity of more...
Both your favors of the 17th & 22nd. ult I had the pleasure to receive about the latter end of the month, since which this place has been a Scene of Confusion and distress. The Inhabitants flying for Shelter to the Interior part of the state, and the Militia moving up with a tardiness which has given me more real Concern than the Enemys depradations have done as It evinces either disaffection...
