New York, January 7, 1785. “I am mortified in being obliged to acknowlege to you my neglect of the business you committed to my care for your friend Mr. Holt. … I have applied to Mrs. Holt. I find she has some time since taken out letters of Administration with the will annexed during the absence of the Executors; a matter in which she never could have found any difficulty. It would indeed be...

I have received your two Letters & one to Colo. Humphrys, who is very sick at present with a fever; the business you requested of him, I have negociated with the General, who directs me to inform you, that he thinks Capt. Bushnell entitled to forrage for a horse since the period of Capt. Gillelands resignation—not however on the principle of his belonging to the Corps of Engineers, who are...
To the several points mentioned in your Letters of 28th & 29th ulto, I answer, that I am at present totally ignorant of the strength of the Garrison which will be destined for West Point, the ensuing Winter, not having as yet had any conference with the Committee of Congress on that subject; I should think however, that a supply of forage and fuel for a Corps of 500 Men, will be sufficient,...
