The several objects to which they extend, will have my consideration, and I shall do myself the honor of informing Congress of the result. Since the Enemy left Jersey, their main body has proceeded into the County of West...
The inclosed memorial of Colo. Hazen was this day put into my hands. Many of the matters mentioned in it are better known to Congress than to myself.

I presume an...

The personal knowlege I have acquired of him, confirms me in the...

I have the honor to inclose the Report of the proceedings of the Commissioners appointed to meet at Amboy the 9th instant, for the purpose of settling a General Cartel, by which, Congress will perceive that the present attempt has been as unsuccessful as all the former, and from the same cause.
