I take the liberty to transmit you a duplicate of a letter sent to the Honble the Secretary of War and Major Genl Hamilton.

Before I recd your accompt against Colo. Kennedy I had paid him all that I was to give him for the house lotts &c. that I bought of him and chiefly in orders accepted—I was desirous to get the money for you It being the first time I ever had it in my power to serve you in a domestick line—his circumstances (I knew) did enable him to pay without a suite of them by the time the suite was...

I send you a return of the men inlisted In Genl Woodfords Bregade since the recruiting orders came out —I expect Genl Woodford forgot to leave orders with me to make Returns of this kind, or I should have paid particuler attention to it—youl see the number very small the men are exceedingly backward—for my part I have used every Method in my power, and I thought I had a peculier turn that...

Leong fell in with fifteen Granadeers and made them prisoners—deserters are continually comeng in—I have several parties out—whom I expect something from—I shall continue on the enemies Right till I have orders to the contrary—Thay keep in so compact a body that it is impossible to do them much damage—However...
