I have occasion for an immediate Return of the Regiment of Artillery Artificers specifying the particular States to which the non Commd Officers and privates belong and the terms for which they stand engaged. Inclosed you will find a form of the return required. As the Companies composing the Corps are considerably detached, you will be pleased to take the most effectual measures to convey...
I have recd yours of the 25th Feby inclosing the Returns of part of the Regiment of Artillery Artificers—It is to be regretted that the original inlistments had not been clearly expressive of the term of service—separate Rolls should have been kept, distinguishing those for three years from those for the War—To obviate the difficulties which were likely to arise from this vague kind of...
I beg leave to present you with a performance which my Countrymen have favourably received, and which I request your acceptance of, as a small, though sincere token of respect, for a gentleman whose talents and virtues have excited the admiration of the great and the good, in every quarter of the Globe. I should not have presumed in the liberty I have now taken, had I not been assured by my...
The great waste and embezzlement of Public Arms, and the difficulties arising from thence make it necessary, that the utmost precautions should be used to restrain such infamous practices and future losses. I know no way so likely to effect it, as that of putting on them some mark indicating ’em to be public property, and therefore request that you will have all belonging to the States, as...
I am favd with yours of this date. I wish I was sufficiently acquainted with Circumstances, to enable me to give you such a Certificate as would fully answer your purposes: but when you reflect that little or no part of the conduct of your Office has come under my immediate Notice, you must see the impropriety of my undertaking to vouch for the regular discharge of your duty or to affix an...
I have received your Letter of 27th Ulto inclosing your Instructions from the Board of War relative to procuring Leather for Military Accoutrements—to which I have nothing to add—the common and milder method of Contract is to be prefered for supplying the Army, and when that fails recourse must inevitably be had in the last Resort to compulsive means—From the importance of the object, I cannot...
Instructions for the Commissary of Military Stores— All the Continental Arms that are out of order are to be collected without delay, that they may be repaired and render’d fit for Service as speedily as possible. Every Workman that can possibly be engaged is to be employed for this purpose—and in proportion as the Repairs are completed the Arms are to be packe⟨d⟩ in proper Chests, which are...
Your Excellency will please to put in Orders who the several Officers wanting Stores of any kind are to apply to for Orders on me or the Comissaries of Stores—Capt. Watkins is Commissary of Ordnance Stores—Capt. Gostelowe Comy of Arms & Accoutrement &c. &c. (Thos. Butler Esqr. Public Armourer under the immediate Direction of the Hon. the Board of War). Your Excellencys most Obed. Very Hum....
As seven of the Gallies at Bordentown are to be stripped and Sunk, not having men sufficient to work them, I desire you will send down travelling Carriages to remove the fine heavy Cannon belon[g]ing to them. If you have not carriages ready for the whole; send down as many as you have, with orders to remove part of them at first some distance from the Water, and then return for the remainder—I...
Your much esteemed favor of the 6th March I have received, have now the honor to enclose the return of the part of my Regiment station’d at Springfield—in my next return shall insert as directed, particularly the number of Men engaged, and their term of services, by which you will perceive that I have none expressly enlisted for three years who belong to this State except four or five...
