I am sorry to find that the liberty I granted to the light dragoons of impressing horses near the enemy’s lines has been most horribly abused and perverted into a mere plundering scheme. I intended nothing more than that the horses belonging to the disaffected, in the neighbourhood of the British army, should be taken for the use of the dismounted dragoons, and expected, that they would be...
I have been favoured with your Letter of the 15 Inst. by Monsr Segond. I think it will be proper for you to join the Army with your Corps, as there yet remain more than Two months in which the Enemy may operate in the Field; However, you are not to proceed with it till you receive orders from Congress or the Board of War for the purpose. If Congress or the Board of War direct you to join the...
I have received your favor of the 28th Ulto informing me that you were proceeding with a part of Blands Regiment to join General Wayne; you will have received my instructions relative to the Service which you are to render. Your intention to resign is founded on reasons which I presume make you think the measure necessary—I can only say therefore that it will always give me pleasure to bear...
Captn Welpper of the invalid corps has lodged a complaint of a very serious nature against the conduct of some of the soldiers under your command He informs me that they have abused a sergeant of a guard and a prisoner under his care—countenanced by a Mr Copetch —I desire that this mutinous disposition may be immediately inquired into—and if as represented, properly punished, and measures...
The Scarcity of Forage in this State, renders it absolutely necessary to remove the Cavalry of your Legion—as well as all the horses belonging to it, that are not indispensibly necessary for the Duty of Officers and the ordinary occasions of drawing fuel &ca. The Quarter Master recommends the Counties of Kent and Sussex as the best place for them to be quartered during the Winter—You will...
Instructions for Brigadr General Count Pulaski You are to march the body of the Cavalry into Winter Quarters at Trenton where you are to take the most effectual means for putting both men and horses in condition to act with vigour in the ensuing Campaign notwithstanding your distance from the Enemy and the apparent improbability of their forming any Enterprize against you—some degree of...
I am exceedingly concerned to learn that you are acting contrarily both to a positive Resolve of Congress and my express orders, in engaging British prisoners for your Legionary Corps—When Congress refered you to me on the subject of its composition, to facilitate your raising it I gave you leave to enlist one third deserters in the foot, and was induced to do even that from your assuring me...
This will be delivered to you by Monsieur de Pontieres, to whom Congress has been pleased to grant the brevet of Captain in the Cavalry; this you will observe gives no title to rank or promotion in the line —you are therefore to consider him merely as an Officer à la suite, and to employ him in such way as will be most likely to conduce to the good of the Service. I am Sir Your humble Servt....
Your Letter of the 9th Instant was deliver’d to me yesterday—and I immediately acquainted the Forage Master General with such parts of it as related to his Department—if proper Magazines for the Subsistence of the Cavalry cannot be formed at Trenton, this is an insurmountable obstacle to their quartering there, and they must of necessity be removed to Flemingtown or some other convenient place...
I had the pleasure of receiving yours by Capt. Le Brun—at this place. The spare ammunition of the Army having gone on with the park of Artillery to Pluckemin I have given an order to have a proper supply sent on from thence. I have likewise given an order upon the Cloathier General for one hundred shirts—We have already made a distribution of what Blankets were upon hand. The Board of War are...
